If you’re unsatisfied with the level of Tottenham’s spending this summer, you should perhaps not be so surprised.
A statistic showing the summer spending of the Premier League’s biggest six clubs since 2012, reveals that Spurs have the lowest net transfer spend and that this figure represents the smallest percentage of total income.
There are two ways to interpret these figures. The positive point of view is that the club are massively over-performing considering the level of spending.
Though Chelsea come close to Tottenham’s 1% total of net income spending, with a surprising 4%, they have spent far more in transfer fees over this period, not to mention wages.
The flip side of the coin, is the opinion that even despite the fact that Spurs are building a new stadium, they are being overtly-cautious in the transfer market.
Having achieved such success with minimal investment, one wonders what heights could be reached is the belt was loosened a little.
So do you view this statistic positively or negatively? Let us know in the comments section.
