Jamie O’Hara believes Tottenham are now a bigger pull for new signings than Manchester United.

Antonio Conte’s side have truly kicked on after securing fourth spot in the Premier League last term by entering the transfer market with the ambition of a side who are looking upwards.

Spurs have already signed Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan and Fraser Forster from Southampton, however the north London side are far from done yet.

Yves Bissouma is the next man expected through the door with his move from Brighton imminent.

And, with more signings targeted before the end of the summer, the ex-Spurs midfielder believes his former club are one of English football’s top destinations for players now.

Speaking on talkSPORT Breakfast, O’Hara said: “Because we got fourth place, because we’ve got Antonio Conte as a manager and because we’ve got Son and Kane and world class players, players now look at it and would rather sign for Tottenham than Man United.

“You would. The facilities are great, you’re in London so why would you sign for Manchester United right now? You’d rather sign for Tottenham.”

O’Hara then went one step further and suggested Spurs might be able to follow in the footsteps of Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool.

He said: “I don’t want to jump the gun but it feels like we’re doing what Jurgen Klopp did at Liverpool when he first came in.

“He rebuilt the team slowly, and then over the next two or three years this side could be unbelievable and challenge for something.”

Responding to Alan Brazil’s comment that the title challenge is a two-horse race, O’Hara said: “Of course it is.

“It’s a two-horse race because Spurs are nowhere near Premier League challengers, but with the business that we’re doing this is different.

O’Hara also believes that Spurs can follow in the footsteps of Klopp and Liverpool

“Tottenham always used to just wait until the last minute, try to get a deal, try to get someone on the cheap and we end up panic buying, spending money and it doesn’t work out.

“This season, before pre-season, we’ve signed players who are improving the first 11.

“It’s not just about improving the squad, but the first 11.”
