Tottenham Hotspur are likely to spend big this summer in an attempt to bolster Antonio Conte’s playing squad…
That’s according to football.london’s Alasdair Gold, who delivered a very exciting claim to supporters in a recent Q&A, where he revealed that the Premier League outfit would spend the bulk of the recent investment from owners ENIC Group.
Last month, Spurs revealed that the hierarchy had put £150m into the club in preparation for the summer transfer window, and it’s believed that the Lilywhites will spend all of that before the start of the 2022/23 campaign.
“The plan is to use the bulk of that £150m cash injection in this summer transfer window, plus anything that comes in through player sales,” Gold said.
The north Londoners have already conducted some business early, bringing in no fewer than three players, including the free-agent additions of veteran wing-back Ivan Perisic and backup goalkeeper Fraser Forster, along with a £25m move for Brighton star Yves Bissouma.
With Gold claiming that the club will spend the majority of the £150m, that leaves around £125m left to splash out on other targets.
You’d imagine that a left-footed centre-back is high on the agenda, with the likes of Alessandro Bastoni, Josko Gvardiol and Clement Lenglet all linked, the former two proving to be particularly expensive.
Whilst there has also been mooted interest in a new right wing-back, where Nottingham Forest’s promotion-winning loanee Djed Spence seems a likely candidate.
Further up the pitch, Harry Kane could do with some support – both to dominate the attack with him or to provide a midweek alternative. That signing, however, could prove difficult as there will not be many strikers wanting to come to N17 knowing just how safe the Englishman’s position is.
Christian Eriksen has even been linked with a sensational return to the club, having worked with Conte at Inter Milan, for whom he left Spurs in January 2020.
All in all, it’s certainly a great time to be a Lilywhites fan right now, and this latest claim from Gold will only increase expectations and excitement heading into the new season.
Spurs are by no means done in the transfer market just yet – they are only getting started.
