New Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is being armed with a £50 million summer transfer budget.

The London Evening Standard says Pochettino, who signed a five-year contract to take charge at White Hart Lane earlier this week, will be handed up to £50m to spend.

He is expected to raise more funds by selling some of the fringe members of the squad and Roberto Soldado's departure would provide significant revenue.

Soldado's departure would leave Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane as the only first-team strikers.
