But The Mirror report that he will move for Inter Milan midfielder Esteban Cambiasso if he can find a buyer for one of his current central midfielders.
Cambiasso, 33, is set to leave the Serie A club this summer on a free transfer and Spurs have now registered their interest.
The Argentine midfielder has been at the Italian giants for a decade since his move from Real Madrid in 2004.
Spurs are one of several clubs interested in a move for Cambiasso but the North London club’s new boss Pochettino will only lure the Argentine to White Hart Lane if he is able to clear space in his squad first.
