There is no guarantee Sancho will even get an announcement. We have never announced academy players in the past. The likes of de bie or shilow Tracey weren't announced.

So just to clarify, do Sanchez and Gazzaniga count as two of the four Poch was looking to bring in?

If so, that would suggest we've only got Aurier and Foyth left to come. Great signings but worry that would leave us short of wide attacking options.

I'm sure Gazza isn't counted in that

If we are paying City some up front compensation as suggested I think we will. Sounds like he's going to pass the development squad altogether.

I think maybe some might be a bit too attached to the number of players Pochettino specified. He probably didn't mean to say "4" as in "I don't want 5/more than 4". I'm sure there is some wiggle room around the final number of new signings.

ITK has recently said that Pochettino was hoping for 4 signings but it could now be come than 4.

I think the situation has changed greatly since Poch first said he wanted 4 signings so I don't think that statement is still valid.
He had previously said he wanted one for each line - guessing Aurier and Foyth may be bonuses

Couple days back some were saying that there's a 1st team and 2nd team budget (anyone remember which thread?), then some itk came along to confirm the 2nd team budget (including Foyth, Sancho, Gazza) wouldn't count towards Poch's 4 - though salt application is needed to that number. It may change, not be reached, or just be shit.

But I wouldn't go into the final day with 3 first-team signings expecting another... unless itk told us so ;)
