Spurs are currently third in the Premier League, a point clear of Arsenal, in the last position that guarantees entry into the lucrative Champions League group stages. And Redknapp has said to ensure the club is regularly competing for entry into the prestigious competition, money has to be spent on players this summer.
The Telegraph quotes Redknapp as saying: “If you want to compete with Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and the two Manchester clubs you have to buy top players. They’re all doing it,” before adding that Lille attacking midfielder Eden Hazard would be a good place to start. “[Hazard] is a player that’s on our list. He’s a fantastic player. The chairman will deal with that, not me,” Redknapp said.
Spurs participated in the Champions League in 2010-11 having beaten Manchester City to fourth place the season before. Under Redknapp Tottenham reached the quarter-final stage, bowing out after defeat by Real Madrid, having successfully negotiated a play-off with Young boys of Switzerland, topped a group containing Germany’s Werder Bremen, Dutch side FC Twente and Italian giants Inter. In the next stage Spurs eliminated Inter’s city rivals Milan before losing 5-0 on aggregate to Madrid.
