Tottenham Hotspur, according to Alan Hutton, may need to be taken over by ambitious owners in order to go to the next level and compete with the best.
Over the previous few years, there has been a lot of discussion about a possible takeover attempt for Tottenham, with The Telegraph reporting last month that Spurs are drawing a lot of interest from American investors.
Do Spurs need new owners to compete at the top?
Hutton praised the work that Levy had done at the helm at Spurs but insisted that now might be the right time for the club to go into new hands.
When asked about a potential multi-billion takeover of the Lilywhites, the former Tottenham right-back told Football Insider: “When it comes to Tottenham and Daniel Levy, the owners have been there such a long time, would there come a point where they think about selling up?
“Probably. The owners have done excellently since they have been at the club, you look at the work Levy has done, it’s amazing.
“Talking about trophies and stuff it could be better. Is the next level for them a move like this? Possibly, to then really go and try to make this squad even better than it already is.
“It will be an interesting one. I think Daniel Levy and Joe Lewis would listen to all sorts of offers and then consider them, especially if it meets their huge asking price.”

The growth of the Premier League is nowhere near saturation point at the moment and there is still plenty of scope for the competition to grow, particularly across the United States and Asia.
So, the value of Spurs and other top-flight English sides is only likely to go up over the next few years. So, unless there is an eye-watering offer, Levy and ENIC would not be in any hurry to sell the club.
