Tottenham Hotspur were one of the busiest clubs in the previous transfer window bringing in seven new senior players to the club.
The level of investment from Tottenham was especially surprising given the substantial losses that the club posted during the previous financial year as a result of the pandemic.
While the net investment in terms of transfer fees was not substantial, largely due to Daniel Levy’s brilliant negotiation skills, the seven new signings still added significantly to Tottenham’s wage bill.
Given that the club has projected even bigger loss in the next financial year, the wage bill might have to be trimmed before more players can be bought in during January and next summer.
Football.London has reported that Tottenham could be set to receive a £4m reduction in their wage bill by next summer should Danny Rose and Cameron Carter-Vickers both leave the club.
The report reveals (using data from Sportsrac) that the two players’ salaries combined set the club back to the tune of £3.96m per year.
