Pochettino asks Levy for transfer kitty, figured published in report

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has asked chairman Daniel Levy for £100 million of transfer funds to spend this summer, according to The Daily Mail.

Spurs had another impressive campaign in 2017-18, finishing third in the Premier League and putting in some exhilarating Champions League displays over the course of the season.

However, with silverware still remaining illusive for the North London club, Pochettino will look to strength the Tottenham playing squad this summer.

The Spurs boss was vocal after the season’s final fixture in his thoughts about how the club can get to the next level – that it was the time to be brave and take risks.

Tottenham supporters have become accustomed to the frugal ways in which Levy has operated, with the club punching above its financial weight when examining both fees and wages.

With the Manchester clubs and the other top-four hopefuls set to spend big money again this summer, the task for Spurs to keep in touch and fight for the title becomes even more difficult.

In the current inflated market, £100 million is not a figure that goes far – in reality Tottenham could bring in three players to improve the first-team squad.

Despite the financial demands to pay off the new stadium, the amount of revenue coming in from television deals means that Pochettino’s demands are not unreasonable – and Levy should give him what he wants.
