Tottenham may not sign anybody this summer at this rate, but what if it was all worth it?
Tottenham Hotspur have confounded their supporters this summer with their lack of transfer activity.
After finishing second last season, Spurs are in a perfect position to kick on but have had struggles identifying and signing starters for their side.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy told The Guardian that spending by Premier League was unsustainable - but this could turn out to be a giant bluff if the right player becomes available.
That player may not be around this summer, and Tottenham discovered last year that spending for the sake of it is a bad move, see Moussa Sissoko.
Over in Spain question marks hover over the future of a certain Gareth Bale, sold by Tottenham for a record fee in 2013.
It appears despite speculation that he won't be sold this summer, but if he cannot hold down a first team spot this season due to injury or other reasons, then the Welshman will face questions.
Buying Bale back has long seemed impossible for Tottenham, but as they move into their new stadium next summer, there won't be a better time to re-sign the winger.
The first step in doing this is to save as much money as possible, and that means being prudent this summer.
If Spurs stick to their guns and don't splash out this next month then next summer they will be armed with an increased spending pot.
Re-signing Gareth Bale in a year would justify a quiet summer 2017, even though it will require a patient and uncertain year ahead.
