Tottenham Hotspur fans have reacted to a list from Soccerex claiming that they are the fourth most “financially powerful” club in world football.
Spurs are ahead of the likes of Real Madrid, Arsenal, and Liverpool in the list, which takes into account, per Soccerex’s official website, the “playing assets, tangible assests, cash in the bank, potential owner investment and net debt”.
And several supporters believe that the list should serve as motivation for chairman Daniel Levy to splash the cash in the summer in a bid to improve the squad, with some going so far as to suggest potential targets, including Juventus’ Paulo Dybala and Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.
The Argentine almost joined the club in the summer but a deal collapsed on deadline day.
Need to spend big in the summer and back the manager. This could be something special✨ https://t.co/eDkl1SfUGw

Other fans have merely expressed their doubt as to the validity of the list.
Indeed, some believe that there has been a lack of investment in the squad over the years, and others have claimed that this is evidence that Levy can spend big.
Must be false no united or Barca https://t.co/fcSqUOBxig

It remains to be seen if Spurs will be on the list next year as they continue to fight for Champions League qualification.
They are currently sixth in the Premier League, four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
