It is true that there haven’t been many signings in the recent history at Tottenham Hotspur, but that isn’t to say there has been no development.
Spurs became the first Premier League side ever to go a whole season without signing a single new player last time out, but still managed to reach their first ever Champions League final.
Back in the 2017/18 season, Tottenham did make a host of signings, including Davinson Sanchez, Paulo Gazzaniga, Juan Foyth, Serge Aurier, Fernando Llorente, and Lucas Moura.
However, Spurs only actually spent a net value of £35,250,000 in that season, as the likes of Kyle Walker, Kevin Wimmer, Federico Fazio, and Clinton N’Jie all parted ways with the club (Wikipedia).
Despite this, between June 2017 and today, Tottenham’s squad value has increased from £386.1m to £793.35m, and all with only £35m in spending (transfermarkt.com)
Only Man City, Liverpool, and Chelsea came above Tottenham in the rankings last season, but each of these sides has invested a lot more over the 24 months.
Spurs are now the seventh most valuable team in the world, ahead of Real Madrid, Man United, Juventus, and Bayern Munich.
