Danny Mills has claimed Tottenham will have already lined up three new signings regardless of the outcome of the Champions League final next month.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England international anticipates a wave of new arrivals at White Hart Lane following a league campaign in which they have lost 13 matches.
Mills does not expect too many big-name signings and instead believes the Londoners will be working on some “left field” recruits more in line with their budget.
Tottenham have not signed any players over the last two windows but have secured a top-four Premier League finish for a fourth consecutive campaign and an against-the-odds place in the Champions League final on 1 June.
“They have done unbelievably well but Pochettino needs funds to strengthen that squad,” Mills told Football Insider. “They’ve lost 13 league games this season and that needs to be improved as there is not enough strength in depth.
“Clearly, Tottenham have financial issues due to building the stadium but a Champions League win might change that in terms of sponsorship and everything else.
“Pochettino is a very clever manger and will already be making transfer plans, regardless of what happens in the final. Tottenham will have two to three new signings already identified and lined up.
“They might be a little bit off the radar and left field. They are not going to be bringing in ready-made superstars as they won’t pay the transfer fees and wages.”
Spurs have been linked with a string of players in recent months including the likes of Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish, Everton midfielder Andre Gomes, Bournemouth duo Nathan Ake and David Brooks, Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen, and Ajax stars Matthijs de Ligt, Hakim Ziyech and Donny van de Beek.
