Mauricio Pochettino will have £60million to spend this summer

Tottenham have revealed Mauricio Pochettino will be given a cool £60million to spend on his squad this summer. 

Pochettino had previously suggested that the club would not be spending big because funds needed to be saved for their new stadium, but with the Lilywhites on course for a second-place finish, a couple of tweaks to the squad could see them go all the way in the title race next season. 

The Daily Mail have it that chairman Daniel Levy is now happy to back his boss after the heartbreak of missing out on the Premier League this season.

Pochettino seeks striker

Spurs' priority is signing a striker to support Harry Kane, with Marseille's Michy Batshuayi the most likely option, with the Ligue 1 club confirming he would be leaving in pursuit of Champions League football.

Fulham's Moussa Dembele is also an option, and he would take up less of Pochettino's budget, but like Batshuayi, he is unproven in the Premier League. 

Spurs need to be prudent with their new ground being built imminently, but promising the Argentine manager a big summer transfer window may well have been used as an incentive for him to stay. He signed a contract extension on Thursday, just days after he was linked with Manchester United following a meeting with Sir Alex Ferguson. 

Spurs need depth 

However, in order to free up the money, Tottenham's squad will not be left entirely intact. Ryan Mason, Nacer Chadli, Nabil Bentaleb, and Tom Carroll could all leave as the club look to take their squad up a notch. Bournemouth are reportedly interested in signing Mason, whose time in north London looks to be up despite a hugely promising start to his career. 

One of the major concerns this season has been the weakness of their bench, so Pochettino must also ensure he adds depth to his squad. 

It is set to be a huge summer for Spurs, with several of their first team featuring at Euro 2016. That could bring them some unwanted attention, but if they can convince their stars that they will be investing further in the team, they have far more chance of keeping hold of them.
