Daniel Levy explains Tottenham strategy heading into the summer

White Hart Lane 4

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has suggested not much is going to change with the way his club approach the transfer market.

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has suggested on the club’s website that the approach to the transfer market this summer is unlikely to be drastically different to previous windows.

Tottenham published their financial results this morning and they showed a 22% increase in revenue on the figures published last year.

Fans will want to see investment in the team this summer, especially if the side misses out on the top four as there will be a need to reduce the gap from the club’s rivals.

“The appointment of Mauricio and his coaching staff in June 2014 has resulted in a coherent determination from top to bottom of the footballing side of the Club to ensure our sporting philosophy is adhered to,” said Levy.

“That is to have a balance of experienced and home grown players, playing attacking, entertaining football our fans love to watch. This strategy will continue as we embark on the summer transfer window.”

Transfers haven’t been ruled out but whether Tottenham will start going after a higher calibre of player in the transfer market is unclear.

There are areas of the team, which need to be improved looking ahead to next season, which will give Pochettino a rounded and more complete squad.

Harry Kane’s emergence has shown how reliant the current side has become on the England centre forward and Tottenham need someone who can rotate next to him and provide Pochettino with a top quality extra option.

There are also question marks over the wide areas with Erik Lamela and Nacer Chadli both used sparingly alongside Andros Townsend over the course of this season.

Where the investments go remain to be seen, but it’s encouraging that Levy doesn’t appear to have ruled out further investments.
