In the latest Tottenham news, Dele Alli has urged the board to strengthen the squad in the summer to boost the club’s Premier League title hopes.
Spurs have again competed with the big boys but are set to fall short, with some of their weaknesses exposed in Saturday’s 3-1 home defeat to champions Manchester City.
Twenty points currently separate Mauricio Pochettino’s men and the Citizens and they will be hoping to close the gap on Tuesday when they visit Brighton.
With a Champions League spot now looking all but guaranteed, the challenge is for Tottenham to maintain their momentum.
Winning a first piece of silverware in a decade would certainly help and ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City, the Lilywhites are 7/4 to win the tournament with bet365.
Finally breaking their trophy duck will help Pochettino hold on to his existing stars, while also attracting other potential stars.
These are exciting times for the club with a new stadium on the horizon and recruiting wisely this summer can set them up for what they hope will be a new golden period for the club.
However, the competitive nature of the Premier League means their rivals will also be looking spend big in the summer, as City aim to add to their advantage, while the chasing pack aim to close the gap.
Alli believes this summer’s transfer market will be vital for Tottenham’s hopes of progress, especially with everyone else aiming to improve.
“Everyone will look to improve,” he said. “Especially in the top six, no one will want to let the gap get too big.
“It is not up to me to say what we need to improve. City are a great side and I expect everyone to get stronger.”
