In order to take that next step, Tottenham Hotspur need to strengthen their squad to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men finished third in the Premier League table last season, and have secured Champions League football for the last three campaigns in a row.
However, it has been a decade since the North London outfit took home a trophy.
United, Liverpool and Arsenal have already signed up new faces this summer, but Tottenham are yet to get their chequebook out.
It is no huge surprise given that in recent history Spurs have left it relatively late to get deals over the line.
Chairman Daniel Levy is not the easiest negotiator in the world as he is never prepared to pay over the odds for a transfer target.
The club have been linked to numerous names over the past few weeks and months, but nothing has yet come to fruition.
Fans have been tweeting their thoughts on the laboured window.
I look forward to the deadline day melt down

Instead we’ve been linked to 48 players.

Ha ha Levy only gets the geld out at last minute hoping for a bargain.

Going to be another great deadline day.

When 48 hours away is announced I wait patiently for the next 2 weeks until the deal breaks down or is completed
