Paul Merson gives his take on Danny Rose comments

The likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Chelsea have been courting him for a while but now the 21-year old looks poised to make the move to North London in a £35 million move.

Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko are also thought to be options, though the latter would have to be used in more of a 3-4-3 formation, something which Spurs used frequently last season.

"Obviously, we had some games that were not the best but I think there were games where we played really good", Dembele said. He was injured at the start of the season and Tottenham made a slow start.

Under chairman Daniel Levy, Spurs have tended to sign young players with potential, including Rose himself in 2007, or foreign players untested in English football - an approach supported by Pochettino.

Rose has hit the headlines this week following an honest, but untimely interview with The Sun. "I forgive him and now we move on".

"I am settled here, I am slowly turning into a southerner", he said at the time.

Asked if he could influence what the players are paid, Pochettino said: "I'm not involved in negotiation, no. Should Tottenham drop out of the top four and back into the Europa League pack, both owner and manager will be told that only money makes this world go round".

Deporte Valenciano say Valencia want €25m for the player.

"I remember I was itching to get on the whole game".

Chief executive Daniel Levy is not one to kowtow to strong-arm tactics so it is hard to conceive what going so public was created to achieve. Harry Winks is known as "Little Iniesta". Pochettino will need to address that with a few early wins otherwise it could become a huge distraction. The England worldwide enjoyed his best goal-scoring campaign last time out, hitting the net 29 times despite missing games with injury.

Andros Townsend and Nabil Bentaleb crossed Pochettino in the past and swiftly left the club. That would not matter, nor cause such trembling among some supporters, except that, with their White Hart Lane site being completely redeveloped, Wembley will be their home throughout the next 10 months.

Rose also suggested that he should be earning more than he now is, which is reported to be £65,000 per week by The Mirror. Of that quartet only Wanyama has offered a reasonable return on investment, but perhaps the value in the others, although less tangible, was in giving a fresh outlook to the season ahead and providing evidence that money is available to fund the pursuit of silverware.
