Jose Mourinho is not expecting swift transfer business but believes Tottenham are moving in the right direction and will end the window with a “better, balanced squad”.
“A new player on Monday would be amazing news, but I think it’s just the opening of the window,” the Spurs boss told reporters ahead of Sunday’s clash with Crystal Palace.
“I think we are going in the right direction, very calm, organised, thinking well, measured. I think we are going in the right direction.
“We know what we can and cannot do, we know which directions we can and cannot go. We must not be reactive. We are very balanced, together, and have no doubts about what we need and about what is possible.
“Step by step, we will end with a better, balanced squad. Of course, keeping the great players that we have is a very important thing.”
