Ange Postecoglou has done little wrong since his induction as Spurs head coach. Heading into this season, Tottenham fans were pessimistic since it was their first season without one of their best players in history, Harry Kane. However, the Aussie manager who had a great reputation at Celtic was hardly known in England. Almost immediately, he made a name for himself, though.

Winning over the players and the fans, Postecoglou seems to be the right fit at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium for the long-term future.

Despite the expectation that Tottenham will miss out on Champions League football, it is through no fault of their own. After all, they were not expected to finish in the top four this season and if anything, finishing fifth would still be an improvement on last season.

This is not the mentality which Ange wishes to instil but it is important for Tottenham fans to take context into account. After all, they are well-placed to push for the top four next season.

However, to achieve this feat, Ange Postecoglou is hopeful for financial backing from the board this summer. After all, they are just a few players away from becoming a world-beating team.

According to a report from The Times, Tottenham are expected to sell Richarlison and Yves Bissouma to raise some necessary funds this summer. The report states that the three transfer priorities are to sign a striker, midfielder and centre-back, with player sales including Richarlison, Bissouma, alongside Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

Signing a striker is arguably what Spurs need the most. Many argue that they have not truly replaced Harry Kane, which might be their biggest downfall this season. While they managed to produce goals from all over the pitch at the start of the season, this was never to be sustainable in the long-run.

Player sales in the midfield makes reinforcement in that area of the pitch a necessity too. While Spurs' poor defensive record is rightly being questioned, not just by pundits, but the recruitment team also.
