Per Bates, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has called current levels of spending in the Premier League "unsustainable", and he will look to youth, prompting Kane to support the supremo.

Winks is a player who has made the step up from the youth-team and managed to hold a regular place in the Tottenham first-team, making a total of 36 senior appearances for the club.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that the club will move in the transfer market after fans began to question their ambitions. If their ambitions are to fight for the title or win the Champions League, you must buy expensive players.

He said: "Bayern Munich are ready to fight to win the Champions League because every season they stay there, and they try to improve the team".

More than £850m has already been spent this summer by clubs in the top flight, with Manchester United's £75m spend on Romelu Lukaku the highest for a single player so far.

"I want to kick on from last season and play more".

The Blues' manager Antonio Conte has consistently expressed discontent regarding his club's transfer activity this window, which led to the purchases of striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco and defender Antonio Rudiger from Roma.


Conte also said Spurs and England striker Harry Kane would be his first pick if he could sign any forward.

"You all know very well what happened in last two years, with Leicester and Chelsea before them (having a poor title defence)".

Conte, 47, added: "We played a very strong team and they had Alaba and Bernat on the bench". He is a complete striker.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has recently said in an interview that if he had to buy one striker, he would go for Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane.

The Premier League according to accountancy firm Deloitte has spent over £850m in player transfers and are predicting that they will bypass the record of £1.165bn which was recorded last summer.

"We don't have to go and spend £20, £30m, £40m on a player and obviously that homegrown player has an affinity with the club that a player we buy doesn't".

But speaking in Nashville ahead of Tottenham's International Champions Cup clash against City on Saturday, Pochettino delivered a strong riposte to Conte when asked about his comments regarding Kane being worth £100m.
