Harry Kane has admitted he is excited about the upcoming season as the new signings at Tottenham have added plenty of competition for places.
Spurs have been one of the busiest clubs of the summer transfer window so far. Antonio Conte’s men have already made five new additions in the form of Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Clement Lenglet, with Djed Spence expected to be the next one through the door (Fabrizio Romano).
Kane has stated that making these new signings early in the transfer window has created a buzz around the Spurs camp, and insisted that the players will be setting their aims high for the upcoming season.
The England captain told Football.London: “I’m just looking forward to the new season and looking forward to seeing what we can do. It’s a big season. We’ve made some big signings, early signings which is great. We haven’t won a trophy in a long time.
“We haven’t been at the level we know we can in the last two or three years, although we’ve done really well to get a Champions League spot. That gave everyone a good boost around the whole club, and an incentive to go and push on this season.
“We’ve got that to look forward to but there’s still work to do before the start of the new season.”
Kane also remarked that having a much bigger squad would allow Spurs to compete on multiple fronts next season, and added that the increased competition for places would help to bring the best out of each individual.
He said: “I know there’s excitement among the fans and rightly so, there always is going into any season.
“It helps with preparation, it helps knowing these guys have been there and done it and got good experience in the Premier League or around the best clubs in Europe, and they’re here to help.
“We need a big squad if we’re going to compete at the highest level in all four competitions. When you look at last season, we were getting down to bare bones and it’s great to bulk up the squad with great players. there’s some great competition for places.”

I believe having increased competition for places will bring the best out of the likes of Eric Dier, Ben Davies and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who all showed last season that they are not prepared to give up their place in the starting eleven without a fight.
