Ledley King believes Tottenham will need the least amount of additions to their squad compared to their rivals this summer.
Tottenham finished third in the Premier League this season and the former Spurs captain, who now acts as an ambassador with the club, thinks his former side already have the majority of a title winning squad at White Hart Lane.
King spent his entire playing career at Tottenham and has suggested that despite the rumours swirling that Spurs are lining up several big money moves, there will not be much movement in and out of the London club in the coming weeks.
“Arsenal are probably going to make a few adjustments like every other team, but I think Tottenham probably need the least adjustments moving into next season,” said King speaking to Talksport.
“Obviously every season is a new season and if you don’t perform then you will be found out but looking from the outside as a Tottenham fan, you feel very confident about the current squad and will not have to do too much over the summer.”
Tottenham have been linked with the likes of Barcelona’s Marc Bartra, Marseille’s Michy Batshuayi and Palermo’s Franco Vazquez, who could all cost a combined figure of somewhere in the region of £55million.
King spent 13 years at Spurs, making almost 300 appearances, but was forced to retire in 2012 due to ongoing injury problems.
The former England international is still only 35 and remains a much loved figure at White Hart Lane, as well as close friends with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy.
Tottenham’s season came to a somewhat sour end when they lost 5-1 on the final day of the season and slipped below arch rivals Arsenal in the table, but Spurs are expected to build on an excellent year with another title push next season.
