Report: Spurs to give Pochettino £150 million to spend this summer

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will have around £150m to strengthen his squad in the summer transfer window.

Spurs reached the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in their history by knocking out Manchester City in a memorable encounter on Wednesday night, and Pochettino is keen to bolster his squad this summer as the club look to challenge for major honours.

Having failed to sign a player last summer, Spurs became the first side in Premier League history to make no additions ahead of the new season, but having completed their move into their new £1bn stadium the club are now ready to back Pochettino in the transfer market.

According to the Daily Mail the Argentine wants up to five new players, and will be given a kitty of £60m plus player sales.

Several players look set to depart the North London club this summer, with doubts surrounding the likes of Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen.

Eriksen has just a year remaining on his contract with negotiations over a new deal having stalled, with the Danish playmaker believed to be interesting Real Madrid.

Spurs triggered a one-year contract extension in Alderweireld’s contract, though this activated a £25m release clause that will become active at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old has established himself as one of the Premier League’s finest centre-backs in recent seasons, and the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea are believed to be interested in a cut-price move for the Belgian.

England international Trippier’s future is also in doubt after a disappointing season, the former Burnley full-back has performed below expectations and could move on.

Several fringe players may also move on, with the club ready to listen to offers for the likes of Victor Wanyama and the on-loan Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.
