Tottenham have not made any additions to their squad in the last two transfer windows, and the lack of investment into the first team finally seems to have caught up with the side.

Spurs have now slipped to three straight away defeats in the Premier League, which has left them with a real fight on their hands to qualify for the Champions League next season.

With the club moving into the new stadium soon, it is important they the invest heavily into the squad in the summer, to convince Pochettino and their star players of the club’s ambition.

Among the top players linked with Spurs recently is Lille forward Nicolas Pepe. The Ivorian has been one of the players of the season in Ligue 1 and his performances have caught a lot of people’s attention.

The 23-year-old who has been linked with Tottenham, Wolves and Manchester United, has scored 17 goals in 28 games so far this season. Lille’s owner Gerard Lopez has now claimed that the club have rejected an offer of €50 million for the 23-year-old, from a Premier League club/

According to a report in the Birmingham Mail, Lopez said, “[Pepe’s future] does not just depend on the club. It also depends on the player. He deserves to play at the highest level. We have offers, yes,” he told the media in France.

“There are clubs in England. We have had offers worth €50m (£43.2m). We will not sell for less, we have even refused a €50 million bid.”
