Former Tottenham defender Ledley King believes the club can challenge for the Premier League title within the next two years.
I love Ledley’s optimism and passion for the club but we really need to be finishing in the top four and qualifying for Champions League football next season if we are to attract some key world-class players who are capable of putting us in the frame for a title tilt.
We are without a shadow of a doubt short of a world-class striker and midfielder before we can even think of pushing for the Premier League and only Champions League football can lure the top players.
“I rate the current Spurs team very highly,” King told the BBC.
“I think we’ve got a young and ambitious manager who’s great and is going to do well for the club.
“I think we’ve got a great group of players at a good age where they’re improving all the time and reaching their peak.
“The way the team are progressing at the minute, hopefully in the next year or two they will be really challenging for the Premier League.”
“Hopefully this season we will finish in the Champions League places and then keep doing that,” King added.
“It’s a big club and you’ve got to make sure it’s not just a one-off, you’ve got to keep doing it.
“Hopefully we can qualify this season and continue doing that for the future.”
