After a continual upward trajectory under Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs have had a bit of a dip in the last 12 months or so. While they did reach the Champions League final last season, that coincided with a big drop off in their league form.
That continued into the 19/20 campaign, with Pochettino losing his job as a result. Things have hardly improved under Jose Mourinho, with the standard of attacking football deteriorating rapidly.
All of this leaves the immediate future of the club looking rather uncertain. The first team looks like it will require some serious investment, but Daniel Levy does not have a track record of embracing such an approach.
Could we see some players move on? It seems likely, and it seems Harry Kane may not be averse to being part of that group at some stage.
Speaking to Jamie Redknapp on Instagram earlier today, he said that he would consider moving on from Spurs if he felt the club was trending in the wrong direction.
"I'm not someone to just stay there for the sake of it" 👀😭

I get asked this question a lot, it’s one of them things, I couldn’t say yes, I couldn’t say no.
I love Spurs, I’ll always love Spurs, but it’s one of them things I’ve always said if I don’t feel like we’re progressing as a team or going in the right direction, I’m not someone to stay there just for the sake of it.
I’m an ambitious player. I want to become a top top player, so it all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team. So, it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever but it’s not a no either.
Considering the way things are going at the minute, that time may not be all that far away.
However, you would imagine Daniel Levy would seek an astronomical transfer fee in any potential deal. Who would be willing to pay such an amount for a player who has experienced some serious injury problems in recent seasons is an altogether different matter.
