Danny Rose has slammed Tottenham’s lack of summer signings and fears they could fall behind their Premier League rivals in the 2017/2018.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are the only club that have not brought in any new faces in the summer transfer window.
Their domestic have spent around £400 million between them.
“I am not saying buy ten players, I’d love to see two or three – and not players you have to Google and say, ‘Who’s that?’ I mean well-known players,” Rose told The Sun.
“Under Harry Redknapp we signed Rafa van der Vaart. It was like, ‘Wow, how did he do that?’ I mean signings like that are what we need – that’s just my opinion.
“There are three weeks to go until the window shuts and you look at Man City and think, ‘If the window shut now they would be happy with the business they have done’.
“Man United, more or less, are there – although I hear [Jose] Mourinho may want one or two more players – but I am sure he’d be happy with his squad.
“As a Tottenham player I’d love to see more signings. It would lift me seeing a top player come through the door.
“I’ve seen a couple of players previously saying, ‘We don’t need a top signing or signings’. But I am sorry, I am not singing off the same hymn-sheet on that one.
“I think we do need one or two top signings to strengthen the squad. I’m just not buying the idea that we don’t need anyone.
“I know it was only pre-season but I watched the game against Man City and I was just in awe of City.
“They only had Kyle Walker, Danilo and the goalkeeper Ederson out of the players they’ve just bought.
“Speaking to some lads when they got back, they’re saying: ‘City are taking off £200 million and then they are bringing on [Sergio] Aguero, [Yaya] Toure and [Leroy]Sane’. That just speaks volumes to me.
“Anyone who says we don’t need any signings, I’m not buying into that.”
Rose is closing in on a return to training after recovering from a knee injury that has ruled him out since January.
Spurs face newly-promoted Newcastle on Sunday.
