Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has travelled to the Bahamas to meet with the club’s owner Joe Lewis to discuss the scope of the transfer budget at his disposal in January, according to The Telegraph.
It comes after Tottenham manager Antonio Conte described the club’s current position as ‘middle’ and admitted the team’s level had dropped in recent years following defeat in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg to Chelsea.
The Italian is embarking on his first transfer window with the club and although he played down the impact that any signings would make to his side, it is expected that Spurs will be active in the market this month.
Levy has missed Tottenham’s last four matches, which is unlike him as he is often an ever-present figure in the stands.
Amid Conte’s admission, The Telegraph reports that chief Levy has flown out to the Bahamas to meet with billionaire owner Lewis for talks on the club’s ambitions going forward and what is available to spend on the team in January.
The report states the pair have met on Lewis’ luxury yacht to draw up a plan on giving Conte the best possible opportunity to make Spurs a more competitive outfit, and to narrow the gap between themselves and their Premier League rivals.

Conte has made it clear that the team as a whole needs improving and reiterated just how much work is needed to get Spurs back to the level they were a few seasons ago. It obviously can’t be done in one transfer window, but he needs the backing from those above him so he can get to work properly.
