Tottenham leading the race to sign Franck Kessie with talks at an advanced stage

“But now I think it is good to be focused on the pitch because we have a very important game against Crystal Palace.”

He added: “No we have not been able to discuss this because of the Covid situation at the club.

“But for sure we will have a meeting. I tend to exploit situations and I think at the moment the only way to improve Tottenham’s situation is to work hard with the squad I have got and improve my players.

“Then if there is the possibility to improve the team in the transfer window we will try to do our best to improve the level of Tottenham.”
