Peter Crouch tips Tottenham to secure top four spot

Spurs for top four?

Former Tottenham striker Peter Crouch has tipped his former side to secure a top-four spot in the Premier League despite making no summer signings.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side became the first team to not sign a single player since the transfer window was brought into football in 2003.

That has lead to many fans and pundits suggesting that the side may well struggle next season and a signing could have helped.

Though, despite not adding to their squad, none of their star players have left the club including Harry Kane.

Now, former Spurs striker Peter Crouch has explained why fans should not be worried about the new season.

“As far as I can see, Tottenham are set up for another good season and just because they didn’t get caught up in the mayhem on the final day doesn’t spell trouble,” Crouch explained in his new Daily Mail Column.

“I can understand why they wanted to sign Jack Grealish. It was a deal that made sense. He is a talented young Englishman and his profile suggests he would have blossomed under Pochettino’s guidance. Had the deal gone through, I could have seen him pushing for a senior cap. 

“While it is strange to see them become the first club since 2003 not to make an incoming transfer, I still expect them to be in the top four next May. When they get back home to White Hart Lane, I can see them taking off again.

“If you are suddenly expecting Tottenham to collapse in a heap because they didn’t make a signing, you are going to be mistaken. There are ways to bolster a team and what they have done this summer is strengthen from within.

“Should you need proof, just look at their attack: that’s where you will find the man who left the World Cup as the winner of the Golden Boot.”
