North Londoners are still hoping to finish in the top four of the Premier League come May.
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has promised that the north London club will be targeting quality rather than quantity in the transfer market this summer, according to reports in the Metro.

The Premier League outfit splashed out most of the proceeds from the world-record transfer of playmaker Gareth Bale to La Liga giants Real Madrid last summer, and in the process brought in a number of big-money signings to replace the Wales international this campaign.
However, with the north London club currently struggling to finish this season in the top four of the Premier League, and so in danger of failing to also qualify for the Uefa Champions League, their transfer strategy last summer has now come under fire.
But Levy has since responded to that criticism, saying: “Our focus is to continue to invest in and develop the squad.
“We shall not look to a summer of major upheaval, but rather to strengthen in key positions, to play the style of football for which we are famous and to deliver a new stadium.
“Whilst this season’s performances and results have not lived up to expectation, we believe our squad has potential.
“It is important that we all now show commitment and teamwork to get the best possible finish to the season.”
