Ledley King believes that Tottenham’s minimal transfer activity will give them the edge in next season’s Premier League race.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino has strengthened his squad with midfield enforcer Victor Wanyama and striker Vincent Janssen, and club legend King believes that these additions will be enough for Spurs next season.
“We have a settled group, not much change, just looking to strengthen in the right areas as a squad,” King told Fox Sports.
“I’m hopeful that will play a big part going into the start of the season, because the other teams are going to have four, five or six new players in their starting line-up.”
Spurs have only added two players to their squad in this window, although the Guardian report that they are close to announcing the arrival of winger Georges-Kevin Nkoudou as an £11million signing from Marseille.
Pochettino looks set to maintain the core from last season and mount another Premier League title push, after losing out to eventual champions Leicester despite rivalling them for large parts of the campaign.
The young English foundation of Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane played a huge role in their success, the latter earning the golden boot award for his 25 league goals.
Alli also picked up the accolade of PFA Young Player of the Year after scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists for Pochettino’s side.
Both Manchester clubs are expected to be contesting the Premier League crown this year but have undergone a lot of change, with managers Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola joining United and City respectively.
Liverpool have also been busy in the transfer window and have added players such as Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum to their new look squad, and King believes the amount of change at the top clubs will work in Spurs’ favour.
