Hoddle claims Spurs can challenge for title if Mourinho signs three players.

Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle claims Jose Mourinho needs to bring in three players for Spurs to challenge for domestic and European titles.

Spurs are currently languishing in eighth place in the Premier League, after a turbulent season.

And Hoddle says Mourinho must prioritise replacing Christian Eriksen, who joined Inter in January.

“In the long-term, I think they need two new full-backs, I think they need a passer in midfield,” Hoddle told Premier League Productions.

“A lot of players at Tottenham at the moment, they run with the ball. Too many players don’t release the ball quickly.

“Winks is probably the only one who can do it, but is he an [Christian] Eriksen?



“That’s how Kane will score goals, good crosses coming in from your full-backs and a midfield player – Eriksen and Kane had that little bit of eye contact.

“I don’t think they’ve got that at the moment, I think too many players hold onto the ball for too long in midfield, and teams come in and crowd them out.

“There’s a lot of tactical work to be done on the training ground, but also individuals who need to up their game if they’re going to be in the [top five].”
