Harry Redknapp gives advice to Tottenham about their January transfer plans

Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham shouldn't be looking to sign too many players this month.

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has told the London Evening Standard that he doesn't think Spurs need to make too many additions this month.

Spurs currently sit fourth in the Premier League table, and after their 1-1 draw at Everton on Sunday, they lie just six points off league leaders Arsenal.

Fans are beginning to dream of a potential title challenge, or at least a place in the Champions League, given how impressive Mauricio Pochettino's men have been this season.

Pochettino has the league's best defence, a host of talented youngsters including Dele Alli and Eric Dier, as well as one of the most dangerous strikers in England in Harry Kane - but the depth behind their leading marksman is cause for concern.

There is a real lack of cover behind Kane, and many expect Pochettino to be in the market for a new striker during this month's transfer window.

Supporters may want to see a couple more additions if Spurs do have aspirations of winning the title this season, but ex-manager Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham don't need to make any big changes.

Speaking to the London Evening Standard, Redknapp has raved about the Tottenham squad, and believes that adding a backup striker is the only thing Pochettino should do this month, given the options he has at his disposal all over the pitch.

"People say they need to buy big in January but why? Hugo Lloris is a top goalkeeper," said Redknapp. "They have got four outstanding full-backs. The two centre-halves have been magnificent and if they are injured, he has Federico Fazio or Dier can slip in there. There are lots of midfield players and so the only person you can bring in is a striker and he won’t play, anyway."

"Spurs play with only one up front and Kane has that position all day long. All they are looking is for cover. I don’t know where they are going to get anyone who can really make a difference. I can understand them adding some strength in depth to keep people fresh but if that is all Tottenham really need in the transfer window, how far away can they really be from challenging for the League?" he added.
