Tottenham Hotspur have just come out of the January transfer window having, in the main, failed to capture the sort of targets Antonio Conte might have been hoping for.
Despite the arrivals of Juventus pair, Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski, there is an overwhelming feeling of disappointment at the club. That comes from the fact that their main targets, such as Adama Traore and Luis Diaz, slipped the net at the very last minute. Fabio Paratici tried, it seems, but ultimately came up short.
However, could more long-term investment in the club – or even new owners – be the answer? Well, according to The Athletic, that scenario might not be too far around the corner.
The Athletic claims that Tottenham are indeed a club for sale. In fact, they even suggest that current owners, ENIC, are ready to sell the club for around £3bn. This would be made up of around £2.3bn in club shares, with a further £700m in debt being taken on.
Further, the report states that Daniel Levy is actively looking for new investment and would welcome it. The Spurs chief, too, is also hoping to stay on at the club, even if ENIC sell up and his long-standing relationship with Joe Lewis is split.
TBR’s View: Tottenham Are Ready For The Next Step
When you look at the set up of the club right now, this is a club ready for success. They’ve hired one of the game’s top transfer gurus in Paratici, while Antonio Conte is the world-class manager they’ve craved for years.
Add that into the fact they have the best stadium in England, and Tottenham really are ready to make a splash.
The problem now comes in attracting those top, top players. And extra money might help do that. If Spurs can get that marquee signing over the line at some point, then more might follow. From there, Conte would surely have a chance at success, and with it, satisfy any prospective new owner.
