Former Premier League club chairman backs Levy to spend big this summer

Simon Jordan, the former Crystal Palace owner and chairman, has challenged Tottenham’s Daniel Levy to spend in excess of £100million this summer.

This summer will represent Antonio Conte’s first real chance to overhaul the Tottenham squad and bring in a series of new faces in his image.

In the winter window, the Italian teamed up with Levy and Paratici to sign Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur, both of whom have hit the ground running in North London.

Kulusevski has been the missing piece in the Tottenham front three, forging a deadly partnership with Kane and Son, while Bentancur has been dictating play from deep with his close control and direct passing.

Jordan, who was at the helm of the eagles from 2000 up until 2010, told talkSPORT: “I would be very surprised if we see less than £100 million being spent by Tottenham in the next transfer window.”

He added: “Whatever Daniel Levy spends, he is still going to be called a bunch of names.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

Levy has, rightly or wrongly, become a bit of a scapegoat for Spurs’ issues over the last few years, however, his appointment of Conte was definitely seen as a step in the right direction.

Whilst Conte has improved almost every player in the squad, some serious investment is still required to turn Tottenham into a side that can consistently challenge for silverware.

Levy knows that the most recent failings of Mourinho and Nuno’s regimes cannot be repeated in order for his position in the club to remain tenable and I think we will see some serious investment this summer.

Above all, Levy needs to do whatever he can to make Conte happy so that he remains in N17 as long as possible.
