Dele Alli shares thoughts on Tottenham summer transfer plans
By Aramide Oladipo
Dele Alli has urged Tottenham not to bring in too many new recruits in the summer transfer window.
Spurs finished second for the first time in the Premier League era, seven points behind champions Chelsea.
The north London club have also qualified for the Champions League group stages for the second season in a row – a feat that has never been achieved at the club before.
Speaking with the Evening Standard, Alli was keen to point out that the team has enough quality and strength in depth to compete next season and there’s no need to rush out and buy new players.
“With the players we’ve got here, we don’t need to go out and spend loads of money,” he said.

“There is a good bunch of players here. Everyone is determined, everyone works hard and there is a lot of quality in the team.
“It is important we stick together, keep working hard and keep improving. We have to take our form from the end of this season into next season, and start even stronger.
“Then, if we can finish as well as we did this season, we should be OK.”
Alli has been simply outstanding for Tottenham since breaking into the team and he has shown that he can provide plenty of goals from the midfield.
The 21-year-old has taken his game to the next level this season, scoring 22 goals in all competitions compared to the 10 goals he scored last season.
He was crowned as the PFA Young Player of the Year for the second season in a row, the first player to achieve this feat since England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney.
In other Tottenham news, it’s been confirmed that this midfielder will undergo surgery.
