Tottenham are unlikely to spend big in the summer transfer window.
The coronavirus pandemic has hit the club hard with big money unlikely to be available to head coach Jose Mourinho to improve his squad.
Spurs finished sixth in the Premier League in a season in which Mauricio Pochettino was sacked and replaced by Mourinho.
It was the first year in five that the club had failed to qualify for the Champions League and leaves the Portuguese with an uphill battle to get the club back into Europe’s elite competition.
Tottenham are not likely to be alone in cutting costs and worrying about their budget, with supporters not due to be allowed in stadiums when the season returns on September 12 either, with social distancing rules still in place.
