Tottenham could be just one or two signings away from challenging Liverpool and Man City at the top of the Premier League.

That’s the view of former Liverpool and Wales striker Dean Saunders, who joined talkSPORT’s Weekend Sports Breakfast.

Conte has made a strong start to the summer transfer window

Antonio Conte has already bolstered his squad with the signings of Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster.

There are likely to be more coming too with those additions barely touching the £150million war chest chairman Daniel Levy, and owner Joe Lewis, have given the Italian.

Spurs had an impressive end to the 2021/22 campaign and were firing on all cylinders to snatch a top four place from rivals Arsenal.

The north London club finished 22 points off title winners Man City and 21 off Liverpool, who continue to be the pacesetters in the Premier League.

Saunders, though, believes that Tottenham may not be too far off challenging those two.

He told talkSPORT: “He’s gone in there, got the running stats up, and they’ve got ready made pros there who have now got the bit between their teeth.

Bissouma was Spurs’ latest arrival this summer

“He’s made two good signings from the club he was at in the past and they’ve both played well.

“They’ve got [Heung-Min] Son, [Harry] Kane, [Pierre-Emile] Hojbjerg, [Cristian] Romero, and if they sign another world class centre-back, [Djed] Spence is a better prospect than Emerson.

“The manager is relentless. He doesn’t just want to win something now, he’s not interested in four years he’ll have a good team, he wants to win something now or he’s off.

“He will be saying: ‘Let me know, Daniel Levy, if you don’t give me the funds to buy the ready mades’. Perisic is ready made. He’s going to improve them right now.

“I think they are a couple of signings away from having a right go at Man City and Liverpool.”
