Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino responds to rumours of a move for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero

Mauricio Pochettino has laughed off rumours Tottenham are interested in bringing Manchester City star Sergio Aguero to White Hart Lane.

Pochettino chuckled when quizzed on whether Spurs were tracking the Argentinian frontman at his weekly press conference.

Reports in the Spanish press have claimed Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea are all weighing up bids for Aguero, who has not been assured of a starting berth in recent weeks.

Asked if Tottenham had any interest in Aguero, manager Pochettino said: "Not true, 100 per cent not true."

Pochettino also indicated Harry Kane could return for Spurs' north London derby clash at Arsenal on Sunday, November 6.
