Tottenham have famously not signed a single player in the last two transfer windows, but Mauricio Pochettino has made it clear that the club needs to operate differently if they are to compete with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City (The Mirror).
If reports are to be believed then Daniel Levy is all set to back Pochettino considerably this summer in an attempt to convince him to stick with the club for the long haul and finish his project (The Express).
Recent reports indicate that Tottenham have already launched a bid for Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele (The Guardian) and Real Betis’ Giovani Le Celso (The Mirror) but it is claimed that both those initial bids have been rejected. Spurs are expected to return with new bids for both players as Pochettino looks to strengthen his midfield.
According to a report in the Guardian, apart from these two, Spurs have also held talks with Ajax’s Ajax’s Donny van de Beek and Roma’s Nicolò Zaniolo, while Pochettino is also said to be keen to snap up Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon.

While Van De Beek and Zaniolo will both likely cost a considerable amount after the stellar seasons they have for their respective clubs, Sessegnon is likely to be easier to get following Fulham’s relegation to the Championship and given that he is down to the final year of his contract with the Cottagers.
If these reports are to be believed, then it looks like Daniel Levy has learned from his mistakes last summer, and is now prepared to go in for players early in the window even if it means paying a little more money for them. Let’s hope we don’t put things off till too late like previous seasons and end up making panic buys.
