Redknapp planning summer shake-up
Harry Redknapp is hoping to sign a striker to spearhead Tottenham Hotspur's push for a Champions League place next season.
Spurs' 2-0 win at Liverpool at the weekend has left them in pole position for a Europa League place, but that represents an underwhelming return at the end of a season in which they took the Champions League by storm, reaching the quarter-finals before losing to Real Madrid.
And Redknapp, who has come under fire from fans following a dismal run in the last couple of months, knows he must strengthen the squad if Tottenham are to return to Europe's premier club competition.
"Hopefully we can get one or two players in the summer and improve again for next year because it is going to be hard," Redknapp said. "We have a big squad but what we need is one or two players who will make the difference to us. Liverpool have done that with Luis Suarez, he is going to be a big player, and we need to find one or two to keep us pushing for the top four.
"We have some players to shift now, we have players on loan who will be coming back and I'm looking for a good frontman if I can find one. I went to the cup final in France on Saturday night and I'm going to go abroad two or three times this week and keep following up leads and see what we come up with."
