Tottenham will give manager Mauricio Pochettino a £60m transfer fund this summer after the Argentine signed a five year contract extension at the club.
Two seasons ago the Lilywhites famously squandered a good deal of the £86m they received from Real Madrid for Gareth Bale on players that failed to make a significant mark.
More than £50m was frittered away on Paulinho, Vlad Chiriches, Roberto Soldado and Etienne Capoue alone.
Yet, the club need not fear a repeat of that feckless splurge with Pochettino in charge of the purse strings.
Since his arrival in England with Southampton, he has made very few transfer-trading missteps, with what few that have transpired vastly outweighed by successful and forward-looking signings.
At St Mary’s, just three buys were made under his watch: Dejan Lovren (£8.5m) Victor Wanyama (£12.5m) and Dani Osvaldo (£15m).
The first two were unqualified successes, with Wanyama continually sought after by bigger teams and sure to generate a sizeable profit when he leaves, just as Lovren did when bought by Liverpool for £20m a year after his arrival.
During his two seasons at White Hart Lane a relatively moderate 13 players have arrived at the club.
Of those only Benjamin Stambouli (£4.7m) and Federico Fazio (£8m) can be regarded as errors and even then the Frenchman was sold to PSG for a profit after starting just 12 Premier League games in his sole season at the club.
Clinton N’Jie £8.3m may still join their number, having yet to show his best in a debut campaign curtailed by a serious injury.
Ben Davies (who came as part exchange for Gylfi Sigurdsson) and Kieran Trippier (£3.5m) were seemingly purchased as back up wide defenders.
Yet both have received far more sizeable game time due to the physical demands Pochettino puts upon his defenders.
Investment has been almost exclusively future focused, with only back-up keeper Michel Vorm (£3.5m) and the PFA team of the year centre-half Toby Alderweireld (£11.5m) over 25 at the time of purchase.
Eric Dier (£4m) and Dele Alli (£5m) have both become first-team staples, while Kevin Wimmer (£4.3m) and Son Heung-min (£22m) have slotted in seamlessly when called upon.
The last named is 9/4 to follow up his impudent solo strike against Southampton with another goal at any time during Spurs’ trip to Newcastle on Sunday.
