Harry Redknapp: This is what Tottenham should do in summer window
By Dominic Toner
Harry Redknapp believes that Tottenham don’t need a major revamp of their squad in the summer transfer window, but feels that some extra cover in attack would be a good option.
Mauricio Pochettino has managed to assemble a strong squad at White Hart Lane since his arrival and his side competed for the Premier League title last season.
Spurs are once again competing for the domestic crown and are second-placed in the table, with a seven-point gap behind leaders Chelsea.
Pochettino has kept a settled starting line-up this season, but injuries have seen the strength of his squad tested.
Ex-Spurs manager Redknapp claims that his former side don’t need a busy transfer window, but has highlighted a back-up for Harry Kane as a potential area.

“Tottenham don’t need to buy too much, maybe a bit of cover for Kane,” Redknapp told the Premier League Tonight show on BT Sport 1. “Apart from that they have cover everywhere, they’re not short anywhere.”
Spurs have had star striker Harry Kane as one of their main sources of goals during the past couple of season and Pochettino recruited Dutchman Vincent Janssen in the summer to provide some support.
However, the forward has managed just five goals in 34 appearances and been unable to put pressure on Kane for his starting position.
Attackers Dele Alli, Heung-Min Son and Christian Eriksen have managed to chip in with important goals this campaign, but Redknapp feels they may need a better back-up in the forward position.
