Spurs now “go-to club in London” according to BBC pundit

Tottenham confirmed their place in the Premier League top four with a 1-0 win over Newcastle last night. Chelsea’s draw with Huddersfield means Spurs will finish above both the Blues and north-London rivals Arsenal for the first time since the 1994-95 campaign.

Tottenham are set to move into their new stadium next season, which could affect the transfer funds at their disposal as it did with the Gunners when they moved to the Emirates.

Steve Claridge believes they are a more attractive proposition to prospective new signings than Chelsea and Arsenal but says they may have to change their approach in the market.

They’re the go-to club in London,” Claridge said of Tottenham on BBC Radio 5 Live.

“They’re the go-to club in London aren’t they?

“Are they going to change their policy? Is it time to get people in who are the finished article?

“Is it time to move the club forward? Because 63,000 people, they’re going to be with the big boys now aren’t they”.

They should be able to afford to go into that sort of market.

“They’ve got the Arsenal conundrum almost, this is the thing Arsenal did (moving into a new stadium).

“You’ve got to get the balance but it will be interesting now to see how they’re perceived as a football club. It’s in a good shape now.”
