And now chief Poch has begged his boss to open the chequebook for the first time in almost 18 months.

Speaking to TV3 in Catalonia, Poch said: “It is essential that this year the team is reinforced.

“We have saved a lot of money in just two years without signing players and this should allow us to strengthen ourselves.

“In Manchester City and Liverpool, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp are free to decide which players they want and which they do not.

“On the other hand, in other teams such as Tottenham, Chelsea or Arsenal it is not in the hands of trainers. Who decides, in our case, is the president.”

The last time Levy opened his wallet to make a new signing came a whopping 513 days ago, on deadline day in January 2018 when he paid £25million for Paris Saint-Germain forward Lucas Moura.

But now Leeds winger Jack Clarke has completed an £8.5m move, with Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele ready to join for a club-record £60m.

Meanwhile, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dele Alli have all signed new contracts at the club since Lucas arrived and the manager himself also pledged his future to Tottenham.


He penned a five-year deal last summer but was strongly linked with a move to either Manchester United or Real Madrid.

But Pochettino confirmed he is not considering quitting Spurs just yet and added: “I gave my word to renew [my contract] with Tottenham.

“Of course, it is a dream to train a club like Madrid, go to the Argentine team one day or go back to Espanyol one day, but I did not consider at any time anything beyond Tottenham.”
