Tottenham Hotspur: Kyle Walker-Peters signs new contract

The north Londoners, who were already assured of Champions League football next season, secured their third successive top-three Premier League finish by edging a insane nine-goal thriller against Leicester.

The former Argentina worldwide has refused to guarantee he will remain at the club, however, and has suggested he wants far greater backing from the board.

From a position of strength, Pochettino sent a message to Levy that sounded suspiciously like an ultimatum: if the club want to take the next step to the biggest trophies, they have to invest more lavishly in top signings. Today a guy like Kane, I don't know for much they can sell him, £100m? "I have very clear ideas of what we need to do", Pochettino said. It is a little bit up to Daniel and the club to agree with us.

"Until now it was so hard to talk about the future, of course from now we need to decide the way of how we are going to operate in the future".

"I think Daniel is going to listen to me. But you know me and sometimes I have some insane ideas".

He said: "You need to be courageous". It's not important. The most important thing is what the club thinks, not you or the speculation about me. I think it's a moment for the club to take risks and try to be competitive.

Harry Kane and Erik Lamela scored twice for Spurs with Jamie Vardy netting a double for Leicester, for whom Riyad Mahrez and Kelechi Iheanacho were also on target.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel wants to stay at the Premier League club for the remainder of his contract.

"We can not think we are the most clever people in the world and we are going to win trophies and spend small money".

"Together we need to feel we are a special club".

According to the Telegraph, the 22-year-old striker has been on Pochettino's radar for some time now, and the Spurs boss is planning a £150million squad overhaul this summer to take Tottenham to the next level.
