Former England defender Danny Mills believes Tottenham can have a clearer shot at the next Premier League title if only they make more signings.
Spurs are the only club in the topflight yet to make an addition to their squad this window, and the former Leeds right-back believes their inactivity in the transfer market is worrying.
On SkySports Morning View on Tuesday, Danny claimed, “They have got a very good 1-11, 1-13, but beyond that strength in depth is a problem, and Wembley will be difficult for them. I do think they need two or three signings just for cover.”
The North Londoners made 4 signings last summer, but only Victor Wanyama got them a good value for their investment, with the trio of Vincent Janssen, Mousa Sissoko and Georges-Kévin Nkoudou all failing to impress.
They have all been linked with exits this summer, but only the French international looks certain to leave, as lack of arrivals could see manager Mauricio Pochettino hang on to the two others as covers.
Tottenham finished 2nd on the Premier League log last term, ended up on 3rd position the season before, and are expected to mount a stiffer challenge next term as they attempt to win a first title since 1961.
With other title contenders readily splashing the cash amidst Spur’s inactivity, it would take a lot of tactical planning and execution from Pochettino all-campaign long if Tottenham are to finish strong in 2017-18 with their current squad.
