Midfielder Jermaine Jenas has targeted a European spot as a minimum requirement for this season after Tottenham just missed out last term.
Spurs, who signed Peter Crouch earlier this week, will not compete in the Europa Cup this year after being edged for the final qualifying place by Fulham, meaning their sole focus will be on their domestic campaign.
"I think finishing Europe would be a definite goal for us," Jenas told Press Association Sport. "We have definitely got the squad that is capable of doing that."
He added: "We are going to have to be competing with likes of Man City, Arsenal, Villa while Fulham were in there last year so we are going to have a lot of competition.
"Crouchy has come in and Kyle (Naughton) has come in, he is very confident for a young lad, while we know enough about Crouchy and what he is going to give us.
"These are exciting times."
Various reports have linked Jenas with a move away from White Hart Lane this summer but the former Newcastle and Nottingham Forest midfielder insists he is happy at the club.
"It is all rumour to be honest," he added. "I am happy at Tottenham and it happens in football.
"There comes a time when the transfer window opens and people start talking. It happens."
