Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has questioned Tottenham's ambitions - suggesting Spurs have lower expectations than their Premier League title rivals.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy criticised unsustainable transfer spending and defended his club's lack of signings.

Italian Conte agreed that the market was "very difficult".

But Conte, who led Chelsea to the title last season, added: "If [Spurs] don't win the title, it's not a tragedy.

"If they don't arrive in the Champions League, it's not a tragedy. If they go out in the first round of the Champions League, it's not a tragedy. If they go out after the first game that they play in the Europa League and go down against Gent, it's not a tragedy.

"Maybe for Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and - I don't know - Liverpool, it is a tragedy. You must understand this. You must understand the status of the team.

"Every team has to understand what their ambitions are. If their ambitions are to fight for the title or try to win the Champions League, you must buy expensive players. Otherwise you continue to stay in your level. It's simple."

"My question is this: What are Tottenham's expectations?"

Summer spending: When will Spurs make their move?
More than £850m has been spent by top-flight sides in the transfer window, which ends on 31 August, with accountancy firm Deloitte predicting Premier League sides will surpass the record £1.165bn they spent last summer.

Chelsea have spent about £130m on three players - forward Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco and defender Antonio Rudiger from Roma.

Tottenham, who sold Kyle Walker to Manchester City for £45m, have not made any signings, with Levy saying: "We have a duty to manage the club appropriately."

Tottenham finished second in the Premier league last season behind Chelsea and were knocked out of both the Champions League and Europa League.

Conte also revealed Chelsea "tried to buy" Walker, adding: "I think now every single player is expensive". And he revealed Spurs and England striker Harry Kane would be his first pick if he could sign any forward. Kane has finished as the Premier League's top goalscorer for the past two seasons.

"Tottenham is a really good squad if they are able to keep all the players," Conte said. "For me, Kane, now, is one of the best strikers in the world.

"If I had to buy one striker I would go to Kane. He is a complete striker. He is strong physically, with the ball, without the ball, he fights and he's strong in the air and acrobatic on the right and the left.

"If you go to buy Kane now it would be at least £100m."

It seems when it comes to football people leave their brains at home or maybe some people just don't have any. Read the article again and think for your self.

If you agree with it then you and Conte are basically saying if you're not loaded you lack ambition. If you don't sell the little you have to make the richer better and you poorer then you lack ambition.

This club that lacks ambition is trying to hold on to their best players in difficult situation so they can get somewhere. This club that lacks ambition and without CL money for almost 22 years has one of the best training complex numbers n Europe and building a world class stadium through private funding and still not dept ridden. This club that lacks ambition manages to be competitive with a wage structure that is low and build a squad on what others spend on 2 players.
Yep Conte has finished Spurs.

Tell hm we are not selling to him. He can be p!$$ed all he wants. Je cam also be playing his mind games. We do what we want and if he doesn't like it, tough

Look me in the eye and tell me that your team does not need improvement as in buying one or two players. No one is saying you have to spend like those mad mullahs in manchester....but common even Everton os flashing the wad in the transfer market. Looks to me like Levy is keeping all the money for the new stadium.

Every team needs improvement and that is not what I'm saying or Po h and Levy I saying. It seems people just want you to buy so they can see activity. We are looking to buy but not spend anyhow for the sake of buying. For goodness sake is Lukaku worth close to 100m?
To make anything from selling Lukaku on then it is only very few clubs would be able to afford him and he'll have to set the EPL alight for his value to go way beyond his current price.
We need players that can improve the squad and my point is players that are better than Alli, Kane, Lloris, Rose, Wanyama, Dembele will cost serious money that Spurs cannot afford. The improvement must come in their replacements and that means being prudent and not spending so much for a bench warmer. The financially dope clubs can afford to do that. Even if Spurs were not building a stadium, it's never been our policy. That is why the first project was a world class training facility to grow the academy, long before Man City built theirs.

It would be a prudent move for a feeder club who develop for the likes of Real Madrid, instead of competing with them, wouldn't it?

Different ambitions you know.... :)

No need to break the bank, but Spurs need to consolidate and still be looking to strengthen an already decent squad...You can't rest on your laurels in this game..One thing for sure, it will be interesting to see if they can finish above Arsenal in back to back seasons.

Pajimoh, you are wasting your time. On replacements or filling of gaps, the philosophy is clear - Pochettino has decided that if the players in the U-21 squad or Developmental side are capable of stepping up in any position, Spurs would not make a move. The only other way is if a good (first team level or better) player exists at a good deal then the club will make a move if it makes sense.

Lukaku cost 75 million. But I get your point. If you said the truth, you wouldnt be able to further your agenda.

I always wonder why the black raced is cursed! And its because of low lives like you. When your white master, Bale, went to Madrid for 80 million, you didnt say anything. But when a black man, Pogba, broke the record last year, you couldnt hide your disdain. Now, you have begun an attack on another black man, Lukaku. Higuain went for 90 million last year, and you didnt say anything. Silva went to City for 50 million and you didnt say anything. John Stones went for 50 million, you didnt say anything. Self hatred is a sin! You are a gutter rat! shameless thing.

PS Conte is not well. He just bought Morata but yet he is raving about Kane, another striker.
