As Daniel Levy travels to the Bahamas for talks with Tottenham Hotspur owner Joe Lewis, he will be looking for approval to help Antonio Conte and director of football Fabio Paratici make the signings they require in the January transfer window.
Daniel Levy Travels to the Bahamas for Joe Lewis Talks
Time for Tottenham to ‘Dare to Do’
According to Matt Law of The Telegraph, Singaporean multi-billionaire, Forrest Li was given a tour of the Tottenham Hotspur stadium recently and that tour has sparked rumours of investment in the North London club.
It is understood that Levy has headed to the Bahamas, where Lewis is based, to discuss the scope of the transfer budget for the January transfer window. Antonio Conte was honest on his assessment of where he sees the current side and some of his comments will have been ringing in Levy’s ears. Levy rarely misses a game, whether it be home or away, but for the last four matches, the chairman has been nowhere to be seen.
One player that Tottenham have been linked with is Wolverhampton Wanderers Adama Traore and the BBC have said a £20 million deal is being worked on. Conte is reportedly interested in the attacking player and sees him as being a potential right-wing-back for Spurs, although questions remain over his delivery in the final third.
There is no doubt that he is fast, powerful and difficult to shake off the ball and can alter the flow of play quickly, and it should be noted that Conte turned a maligned player in Victor Moses into a vital piece of his Premier League winning Chelsea side. In the current climate, £20 million could be seen as value for money.
The Joe Lewis Enigma
Lewis is somewhat of an enigma when it comes to his ownership of Tottenham Hotspur and has rarely been seen at either White Hart Lane or the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, leaving things to Levy although, even he is seen but rarely heard and continues to split opinion in the fanbase.
Fans and Conte will now hope that Lewis will loosen the purse strings and the painful rebuild can finally begin at last.
