Despite not adding a single player to their squad in the last two transfer windows, Tottenham have competed valiantly at the top end of the table this season.

Going into the final few games of the season, Spurs find themselves in the third position in the table, and in the semifinals of the Champions League.

Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara has opined on who Spurs need to sign in the summer in order to improve their squad.

O’Hara advised the club to snub Crystal Palace wide man Wilfred Zaha and instead implored the club to go after players who would come straight into Tottenham’s first team.

Speaking to Love Sport Radio, O’Hara said, “Zaha is a fantastic player and a great prospect but I think Tottenham need to be looking at someone now who is going to change that team and add to that team.

“Does Zaha start in front of [Lucas] Moura or [Christian] Eriksen or Son? I don’t think so.

“I think they need to really strengthen in midfield. I’d like to see them sign a world-class midfielder. That’s the first thing Tottenham need to do.

“They need a couple but I’d like to see them go for someone special just to say ‘we’ve arrived now, we’ve got our stadium, this is what we’re thinking and this is where we’re going’. They don’t need to sign bit-part players.”

The former midfielder also said Spurs have to spend £100 million on a couple of world class players if they wish to compete against Manchester City and Liverpool.

He added, “If you want to compete and contend at the top for the title, you have to spend. That’s just the way it is. World-class players cost money.

“Tottenham have done unbelievably in terms of not signing anyone and still competing – but they haven’t won a trophy.

“If they really want to stay competing with the Man City’s and Liverpool’s, then they need to spend £100m.

“I think they need two and if you can’t get two world-class players for £100m, then the game really has gone mad.”
