'With the right signings': TalkSport pundit has just made a huge claim about Tottenham and Manchester City next season
Tottenham might have just qualified for the Champions League over Arsenal today but TalkSport’s Darren Ambrose thinks next season can be even better.
Both Manchester City and Liverpool were a cut above the rest this season as nobody got near the top two. Spurs ended up 20+ points behind City, and in the end, had to take it to the final day to scrap into that top four slot they so desperately wanted.
However, speaking on TalkSport tonight, former Crystal Palace man, Darren Ambrose, has claimed that with the right signings, Antonio Conte can push City close next season.
“I look now, 22 points behind City the leaders. I think with the right signings – which he can clearly pick when you look at Bentancur and Kulusevski – I think if he signs the right players, it can be closer. Absolutely. They were unlucky not to go above Chelsea, but I think between eight to ten points next season. If not even better,” Ambrose said.
Tottenham, of course, will have the added problem of playing European football against the elite to contend with. That could mean Conte needs plenty of new signings, not just one or two.
TBR’s View: Tottenham Can Challenge With Kane And Son Fit And New Additions
Make no mistake, Tottenham are getting somewhere with Antonio Conte at the helm. They have really adapted to what he wants from his teams and with the attacking players they have, they’re always in with a shout.
As Ambrose says, if they do bring in the right players then they could challenge. Sure, Manchester City and Liverpool are a world apart, but that can change. Tottenham and Conte have work to do, but with the right players alongside Kane and Son, then a title challenge might not be off the table next term.
