Tottenham Hotspur have famously not added a single player to their squad in the last two transfer windows, with Lucas Moura the last player to arrive at the club in January of last year.
Despite the lack of transfer spending, Tottenham have competed valiantly against sides that have invested much more into their squads, and even reached the finals of the Champions League last season.
However, with Mauricio Pochettino’s future now subject to speculation, it looks like Daniel Levy will have to loosen his purse strings this summer, in order to convince the Argentine to stay.
According to a report by Football Insider, the Tottenham chairman is set to do just that as he could hand a record-breaking transfer budget to Pochettino this summer if Christian Eriksen leaves the club.
The report claims that Levy intends to make it as difficult as possible for Christian Eriksen to quit Tottenham this summer by sticking to his £140million valuation of the player.
The report further suggests that the Spurs manager has been handed a kitty of £50million plus whatever he generates from sales, and thus, this figure could shoot up to £190 million if Spurs’ asking price for Eriksen is met by Real Madrid.
With the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Kieran Trippier, Victor Wanyama, Vincent Janssen and Georges-Kevin NKoudou also potentially on their way out of the club, it is claimed that Pochettino could have close to £300m to spend on new players this summer.

It is crucial that Daniel Levy backs Pochettino this summer, and the reports at the moment seem to indicate that the former Southampton man is indeed being backed.
Let’s hope Levy has learned from the mistakes he made last summer and does all he can to get both sales and purchases completed as early as possible.
