Tottenham Hotspur have had an extremely productive transfer window, having managed to secure six new additions in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon, Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius for a little over £60 million.
The Evening Standrad’s Dan Kilpatrick has now provided some reasons as to why Daniel Levy decided to spend relatively big this summer despite fearing for the club’s future when the pandemic struck a few months prior.
He claims there was an element of market opportunism in the way Spurs acted this window as the club took a calculated gamble on making prudent buys before the market bounces back.
Kilpatrick suggested that Spurs found deals for the likes of Doherty, Reguilon and Bale too good to turn down given the prices they were available for.
He also claimed that super-agent Jorge Mendes, who is a close confidant of Mourinho, also helped the club to conclude deals for Doherty and Vinicius for relatively low prices.
Finally, Kilpatrick adds that the opening day defeat at the hands of Everton likely had an influence in accelerating Tottenham’s transfer activity as the club realised they could not afford to miss out on the Champions Leauge again.
