Manchester United and Chelsea have been monitoring the 24-year-old defender, however, according to L’equipe Tottenham are the club closing in on signing the PSG player.
Spurs have been inactive in the transfer window, so Aurier could be Pochettino’s latest addition to the Tottenham squad.
“Now sure it’s an advantage to not sign players,” he said. “I think the balance is the most important. We need some new faces to bring new energy in the team.
“It’s always important to challenge your best players. It’s true that we are calm and we are strong enough to compete in the same way we did last season.
“But, for me, we need to sign some new players before the end of the transfer window. I think it’s always important to refresh the squad and help the competition between us”, said the Tottenham boss.
