Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are likely to back Antonio Conte this summer after completing their first full season in the new stadium.

Conte has certainly made no secret of the fact that the club need investment in order to compete on multiple fronts next season (Football.London).

The Telegraph reported on Monday that the North Londoners will be somewhat reliant on getting decent fees for outgoing players as they have already committed around £100m on the signings of Cristian Romero, Dejan Kulusevski and Sergio Reguilon this summer.

While Romero and Kulusevski are both on loan, with Spurs having an option to buy both players, it was explained that Tottenham negotiated a deal with Real Madrid for Reguilon in 2020 that only required the payment to be made in his third summer at the club.

Gold has now backed up this claim but suggested that despite the £100m in transfer fees that Tottenham have committed, money ‘will be easier to come by’ for Spurs this season than in previous years.

The journalist explained that this was because the club have finally been able to spend a full campaign reaping the benefits of the different revenue streams that come through the matchdays and other events held at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Gold added that Tottenham’s managing director of football Fabio Paratici wants to assemble a squad capable of competing with the Premier League’s best next season.

The acquisitions of Kulusevski and Bentancur in January proved that it is not just about spending big money on players but rather about making smart acquisitions. If we can add four more players of similar quality this summer, we will have a squad that can challenge the best sides in the Premier League.
