Tottenham fans laugh at Wenger’s claim that Kane may be sold to fund new stadium

As Arsene Wenger prepares to depart Arsenal after a period of decline which came after heavy investment in the Emirates Stadium, it has not escaped the Frenchman’s notice that the Gunners’ local rivals Tottenham are embarking on a similar project.

The idea behind the renovation of White Hart Lane is to give Spurs a sustainable footing on which to compete with the bigger spenders but Wenger knows from experience how the constraints of paying back the money for a new area can affect the transfer budget.
