Redknapp targets reinforcements

Published Add your comment

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has earmarked the players he wants to get the club closer to the top four of the Barclays Premier League next season.

Redknapp wants to push for a Champions League place in the same way as Aston Villa and Everton have this campaign. The 62-year-old was interested in Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones and Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing in January, and both could get relegated this season.

"I am just looking to add one or two more in the summer to give us a real squad that can push on next year," Redknapp told Sky Sports News.

Redknapp knows how tough it will be to get into Europe's elite, but he feels Spurs can at least challenge the top four and put the pressure on.

"We're capable of doing that," he said.

"Getting into it is difficult, they are so strong, but we have to aim to be there if we can.

"Tottenham have great resources and there's no reason why we can't do it one day.

"So let's see what we can do next year and if we can do it that would be fantastic."
