Michael Dawson is confident Tottenham's new signings can push the club forward and help them secure Champions League qualification this season.
Andre Villas-Boas has signed Paulinho, Nacer Chadli, Roberto Soldado and Etienne Capoue so far this summer and with the arrivals of Erik Lamela, Vlad Chiriches and Christian Eriksen said to be close, supporters will have every reason to agree with the defender.
"We have a great group of players. There is a great mix of nationalities and we are still all bonding together," he told the Evening Standard.
"It's about taking the club to the next level and bringing the best players in. That's what you have to do in the Premier League, you can't stand still."
Tottenham narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification last season, as they were agonisingly pipped to fourth place on the last day by their North London rivals Arsenal.
Manager Villas-Boas is attempting to go one further this season and has strengthened his squad significantly despite the imminent departure of star man Gareth Bale.
Dawson added: "Sometimes at Tottenham, a lot of signings have happened after the first Premier League game but it's been great for us that we made a lot of transfers early in the summer."
Spurs and their new signings travel to Arsenal this Sunday hoping to rectify their last two visits to the Emirates, both 5-2 defeats.
