Some Spurs fans on social media are hopeful that the club’s transfer kitty will be boosted amid reports that Tottenham are close to agreeing a naming rights deal for their stadium.
It has been over two years since the opening of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and a significant portion of the games at the venue have been played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It was previously reported that the timing of the pandemic had made it extremely challenging for the Lilywhites to secure the right naming rights partner, with Daniel Levy said to be keen on striking a £25m-per-year deal.
The Daily Mail claimed on Monday that the Spurs chairman was in advanced talks over the stadium’s naming rights and a deal could be confirmed by the club ahead of the start of next season.
The report did not reveal the name of the company that is in negotiations with the club for the stadium’s naming rights nor how much the deal would be worth but it was asserted that an agreement would come as a big financial boost to the club.
Some Tottenham fans are hopeful that a new deal would translate to a bigger transfer budget this summer but a few were sceptical as to whether the club’s ownership would spend the money on new signings.
If we get the deal done soon would there be a bigger budget for transfers this summer?

This deal won’t be announced until the end of the transfer window.
That way he won’t have any excuses for not spending any money from it on new players.

So this is where the money is coming from for us to be linked with these transfers.

Spurs Web Opinion
Irrespective of whether a naming rights deal would impact the transfer kitty that Paratici and Nuno have to work with this summer, it would certainly be a timely boost for Tottenham’s finances which have been hit badly by the pandemic. With fans set to return to stadiums next season, hopefully, the club will not take too long to recover from the lost revenue over the last 12 months.
