Danny Rose comes for Tottenham over lack of summer signings

Footballer, Danny Rose isn't happy with Tottenham over what he has described as lack of summer signings, as he fears they could fall behind their Premier League rivals in 2017-18.

The England international, who has hinted at leaving north London amid reported interest from United and Chelsea, believes the club need to add some big names to the squad if they are to maintain a challenge for the Premier League title.

"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," he 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."

“As a starting XI we have one of the best in the league, without a shadow of a doubt, but after that . . .

“We played Chelsea in the Cup semi - Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Gary Cahill didn’t play. After 60 minutes, Antonio Conte has brought on Cesc Fabregas, Hazard and Costa and they’ve changed the match.

“I thought to myself, ‘Could we ever afford to play against a top team and afford to have Harry Kane, Dele Alli and a top centre-back not playing?’

“No disrespect to anyone but I don’t think we could do that and Chelsea did that to us. They’re still in the game, they bring on Costa, Hazard and Fabregas and they won. I definitely feel we need to bolster the squad.

“Under Harry Redknapp, there were two Premier League-class players for every position. We are finishing even higher under Mauricio but we don’t have that depth now."
