Cape Town - Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that his side is behind the likes of Manchester City but are still pursuing transfer targets.

Spurs remain the only Premier League team who have not signed a player in the current transfer window, but Pochettino has assured that they are in the process of adding more quality.

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola's City has added six signings so far and showed their quality with a 3-0 win over Spurs in a pre-season friendly at the weekend.

"Of course, Man City have more senior players than us and they invest more money than us," Pochettino said, according to the Evening Standard. "You can see that we have a lot of young players on the bench.

"It's true the squads are completely different but we are building the squad. Maybe today they have a little bit of an advantage, they are ahead of us because they have signed and kept the players that they want.

"We are a little bit behind but working hard to sign some players who can help us and bring some energy, and make us more competitive."
