If reports are to be believed Daniel Levy is set to back Mauricio Pochettino considerably this transfer window after the club failed to sign a single player in the last few windows (The Sun).

A report from Football Insider claimed that the Tottenham chairman might hand Pochettino a club record transfer budget of close to £300m to spend if Christian Eriksen leaves the club this summer.

According to Football.London, the Spurs manager has identified five key positions he wants to strengthen this summer and has named who he wants the club to get, in order to take them to the next level.

It is suggested that Pochettino wants to add both a right back and a left back to the squad this summer and that Norwich City’s Max Aarons and Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon are the players he has identified.

He is also said to be keen on signing Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso irrespective of whether Christian Eriksen stays or leaves the club this summer. The 47-year-old also wants to secure the services of Tanguy Ndombele, as he goes about rebuilding Tottenham’s midfield.

The one other player Tottenham are said to be seeking is an experienced replacement for Toby Alderweireld if the Belgian ends up leaving the club this summer.

Spurs Web Opinion

Based on the players that Tottenham have been linked with so far this summer, it certainly makes sense that these five positions would be Pochettino’s priorities. However, we believe it would be ideal if the club were to convince Toby to stick around for one more season, and instead of central defender, prioritise a young striker as a back-up to Harry Kane.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Anyone with a brain understands that if Eriksen was sold( which looks unlikely now) we would use the money on a replacement. This not a report but people sitting around stating the obvious. To me it`s weird that Aarons is a priority but Wan Bissaka is not!? Granted the fee would be lower with Aarons but not by much so that we could get a more proven and potential rightback for England instead. Just think people write halftruths and lies too frequently and we don`t hold them accountable on it.
