Pochettino handed £120m for transfer spending, Tottenham Hotspur fans react

Over the last few seasons, Tottenham Hotspur have been transforming themselves into genuine challengers for trophies.

The club will move into a state-of-the-art stadium this summer, and they have an opportunity to end the campaign with silverware as they are two wins away from lifting the FA Cup.

In the last two seasons, Mauricio Pochettino’s team have finished third and second in the Premier League respectively.

In the current campaign, the club have had to settle for a top-four battle due to the dominance of champions Manchester City.

Pochettino’s current team are capable of competing at the highest level, but they need a few more acquisitions to take that step further, particularly as their rivals around them will be strengthening in the summer window.

According to The Independent, Pochettino will be given a transfer kitty of around £120m, and the publication adds that the money available will increase with the likely sale of Toby Alderweireld.

A defender and attacking midfielder is expected to be on the wishlist, and according to our poll, the majority of Tottenham fans would welcome the arrival of Bryan Cristante, who is currently plying his trade at Atalanta on loan.

After reports emerged of Pochettino’s budget, Tottenham fans tweeted their reactions.
