Daniel Levy has been able to conduct all of his deals from the comfort of the United Kingdom so far.
It was no secret that Spurs were going to struggle to spend this summer but so far, they've had no difficulties in bringing players to north London.
Tottenham have already brought three new faces to the club and they are now busy integrating into the first-team set-up under Jose Mourinho.
Spurs have been keen to target domestic arrivals. Demarai Gray of Leicester could still follow Matt Doherty, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart for the door, for instance.
At one stage, there was even some brief talk about Spurs signing Wilfred Ndidi.
On the topic of Ndidi and defensive midfielders, however, Tottenham have now been given the chance to secure another bargain.
Last month, Spurs were linked with a move for Toulouse midfielder Ibrahim Sangare.
Get French Football News confirmed that Spurs were interested in the 22-year-old and had been following him for a period of time.
However, the player's price tag has now been revealed by Foot Mercato.
They claim that Sangare has caught the attention of a host of European clubs and if any willing suitor wants to lure him away from Ligue 1, they will have to pay €8m-€10m (£7.1m to £8.9m).
GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...
With Tanguy Ndombele looking like he has no future at Tottenham, Mourinho and Levy would find it difficult to find many better replacements than Sangare.
The Ivorian midfielder has been described as a "colossus" in the past, a player who has become a midfielder "powerhouse" according to WhoScored journalist Martin Laurence.
Sangare has become one of the most dominant ball winners in French football and last term, he won a mighty 3.4 tackles per game. That's a tally that's stayed true to his qualities in the last few years.
In 2017/18, he averaged the most tackles (4.1) per 90 minutes of players to start ten or more games in Ligue 1. Remarkably, that's a feat previously achieved by the likes of Idrissa Gueye and N’Golo Kante, two players who took the Premier League by storm.
Sangare is not only an enforcer, but he's also an exquisite ball carrier. At just £8.9m, Levy could not only discover Ndombele's replacement, but he could also unearth the heir to Mousa Dembele's thrown.
The 22-year-old really has everything a defensive midfielder needs.
