It's probably fair to say most Tottenham fans aren't enjoying what their team's doing this summer. 

The club are yet to make any major signings and with the season starting today, they're running out of time. 

Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping his team can challenge for the Premier League title again this year, as well as improve in the Champions League.

However, all their rivals seem to have made much better use of the off-season by signing a number of players. 

Champions Chelsea landed Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger, but it's still said Antonio Conte wants more. 

The two Manchester clubs, City and United, have spent over a combined £350 million between them and even Arsenal have spent more than their north London rivals. 

To make things worse for Spurs, Kyle Walker has already left the club and now they're in danger of losing Danny Rose too. 

The 27-year-old said in an interview yesterday that he's open to a move away from Tottenham, sparking interest from Chelsea and United.

Rose revealed that his low wage has made him question if he wants to remain in Pochettino's team and he's also stated he wants to win trophies.

Following his comments, Harry Redknapp, who worked with the defender for four years at Tottenham, doesn't understand why Rose has been so public. 

"I'm surprised at Danny," Redknapp told reporters, per Goal.

"Danny is a great lad, an outstanding player. I don't know why he's said that really, it's up to the manager and the owners whether they spend money really, and buy players."

The current Birmingham City manager also explained why he thinks Rose is wrong to hint that the club lacks ambition after a quiet transfer window. 

"It's a difficult club to buy players at because their starting XI is so good. If you were trying to sign a player what you would say to him?

"'Come to Tottenham', and the player says 'I'm a striker where do you see me playing', and you say 'on the bench really because we've got Harry Kane'.

"A No 10? 'We've got Dele Alli'."

He's certainly got a point. No world-class player will be willing to spend the season sitting on the bench behind Kane and Alli. 


It is a bit strange though, that Spurs haven't even been able to bring in squad players. 

If they don't make a signing before September, it will be interesting to see how they fare over the course of the season.
