Report: How Levy invested over £60m this summer despite Spurs financial difficulties

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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. First time in a long while I love our squad depth.
    Every player has someone fighting to take their place.
    On paper we have an easy Europa League group so we can rotate the whole team for those games if he wishes and I’d still fancy us to win them all.
    Doherty and Reguilon offer us the chance to play with a back 3 if José chooses to.
    Ndombele looks like the player we signed at last.
    Son is on fire, Kane is providing assists (???) and Bale and Vinicius haven’t even stepped on the pitch yet.

    Good window I’m mildly optimistic of a good season and a potential trophy, however VAR needs to stop ruining the game before fans turn their backs on it

  2. I have pretty much given up on posting on this website as the posts take SO LONG to appear. I hope this has been fixed now?

    I agree with your comments. I have been a Spurs supporter since the mid 1950s. Born in Tottenham but live in Florida now.

  3. Why has Danny Rose been hung out to dry. Such a talented individual must surely be
    given the opportunity to rehabilitate. An injury to Davies or Reguillon leaves us vulnerable. Sort this guy out he is brilliant on his day. Anybody can change if the challenge presents itself.

  4. I think part of the Rose issue is his multiple talking to the press without club permission. I suspect that he is his own worst enemy at times.
