Spurs Boss Says Premier League Transfer Spending Not Sustainable

27 July 2017

Levy admitted to difficulties due to the club building a new stadium, but insisted there was not yet a player Mauricio Pochettino had found that Spurs could not afford.

Antonio Conte is in the market for a right-sided defender to compete with Victor Moses in the wing-back role and the Blues boss has seemingly earmarked Toljan as a potential target.

Gerson has struggled to make any kind of impression in Rome over the past 18-months but he impressed in the first half against Spurs while playing slightly deeper in a central midfield role.

The only obvious way that Harry Kane can score even more goals this season is to start quickly.

Do they, though? In this day and age of unfettered player movement and its resulting lack of loyalty to a club (which was largely a fan perception anyway), I'm not sure it matters so much whether a player is homegrown or not except in the roster construction sense. Bargains are still out there - Leicester bought N'Golo Kante to the Premier League for less than £8million and won the league arguably on the back of that transfer - so just saying players are too expensive is disingenuous.

The spending by Premier League clubs in the current transfer window is unsustainable, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy said on Tuesday.

Usually it's the reality TV villain who "didn't come here to make friends", but sometimes that's even true of superheroes. There are six more episodes in this season of Game of Thrones , which airs Sundays at 9 p.m.

It is a risky ploy if true and Spurs might be better off adopting a similar policy to their opponents when it comes to strengthening their options ahead of another crucial campaign.

City alone have spent over £200 million on six new players, while Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal have all made club record signings since the end of last season.

Spurs have been linked with £50m-rated Everton playmaker Ross Barkley, and have sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City for £50m.

New arrival from Sassuolo Lorenzo Pellegrini played in the loss to PSG and Roma fans could get a glimpse of Aleksandar Kolarov and Gregoir Defrel against Spurs.

Waiting to tap home is under-fire striker Vincent Janssen, who scored only two goals in the Premier League last season.

This was not your typical meandering pre-season friendly, far from it, in fact. I am just a player, and I'm committed, I'm involved with my team, and we trust each other.
