Alan Hutton has lauded Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy for his “tunnel vision” amid talks over a potential blockbuster Amazon deal.
The former Spurs and Scotland star, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, insists the 58-year-old has been brilliant in securing deals on both a footballing and commercial front.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Levy is looking to seal a stadium naming rights agreement which would bring in £250million over a 10-year span, with Amazon said to be keen on doing a deal.
Hutton admits it is no surprise to see the Spurs chief chasing down another big-money deal for the north Londoners and suggests that the fact Amazon are filming a documentary this season should boost his chances of pulling off an agreement.
Hutton told Football Insider: “I mean he’s a shrewd businessman, that’s for sure. He’s very strong in his ways and he’s got that tunnel vision when it comes to things like that.
“I always knew when the new stadium opened, all the new, big stadiums have got the naming rights so I knew something would come up.
“Obviously Amazon are doing the documentary at the moment for the season so they’ve got that link there. He’s very good at what he does, whether it be players with their wages, the new stadium build or the NFL going there, he’s very good at what he does in bringing money in.
“It’s just another deal he’s got in the pipeline that’s going to make them money.”
Having reached the Champions League final last season, Tottenham have had a hit-and-miss 2019/20 campaign.
They were knocked out of the League Cup on penalties by Colchester United back in September, while they suffered the same fate in the FA Cup to Norwich City.
