Tottenham does not quite rank with the Premier League elite, but, by improving positional needs, they can join the conversation.
Let's face it, so far, this season has been disappointing for Spurs.
They spent the last three seasons hovering around the all-important final fourth spot in the table, which meant getting a chance to play in the European competitions (Champions League or Europa League), but this season was meant to be different.
Finishing in or near the top four was good, but now they want to be considered amongst the other elite teams in the Premier League.
Things looked to be in good shape for Spurs at the beginning of the season. They brought in a high-profile coach, Andre Villas-Boas, and signings, such as Clint Dempsey and Moussa Dembele, to spearhead their chase for EPL glory.
The results, however, have been lukewarm for the Portuguese coach and his team. They are on the outside looking in at those European competition spots, sitting seventh in the league table.
However, all hope for improvement is not lost for Tottenham. There is still plenty of time left for them to make up some ground this season, and AVB (Andre Villas-Boas) will be getting the appropriate funds to make the necessary changes to his squad.
The only question that remains is where do they need help?
