Tottenham star Kyle Walker Peters still needs time according to Mauricio Pochettino

But Pochettino told BBC Radio 5 live: "It's not easy to find the right profile but I'm sure we'll add some players in the next few weeks".

Pochettino's side have struggled at the national stadium in recent times, including in their awful Champions League campaign previous year where they did not make it out of the group stage.

With Rose and fellow long-term absentee Erik Lamela sidelined through injury and Kyle Walker sold to Manchester City, Spurs have depleted options to choose from at St James' Park.

Pochettino addressed the thorny issue regarding with care at his subsequent press conference, so much so that he flicked nervously between Spanish and English for the first time in months.

Based on a report by Simon Johnson in the Evening Standard, Chelsea are as aware as anybody that our realistic chance at acquiring Danny Rose from Spurs is next to non-existent, but just in case a thing that hasn't happened in over 30 years happens this year, we're ready with a nice offer for the 27-year-old.

Pochettino said, "I forgive him and now we move on".

"I remember very well", he said.

"I think Barkley would be the flawless player to do something different and I wouldn't even be surprised if they put in a late bid for Wilfried Zaha".

"The player is calm and we are calm".

Otherwise it should be a familiar side with Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli looking to carry over their excellent form from last season as they support Golden Boot victor Harry Kane in attack. "It's not a problem for myself", the Argentine coach continued.

Tottenham's key players like Harry Kane, Alli and Rose himself, know that they could earn twice or even three times as much by moving to one of the other top clubs. "Nothing has changed in my vision or perception here".

"Over the last five years Tottenham have always signed players and spent money at the end of the window", he said. He apologised and everyone needs to move on. We were focused from the beginning of pre-season to challenge and try again to prepare ourselves to compete in a very tough league. We will add some players to the squad and are working hard to add more possibilities for the future.
