Tottenham Hotspur star Danny Rose has urged the club to invest this summer following a relatively injury-free squad allowed the North London side to enjoy another successful season.
The 26-year-old, who himself has not been as fortunate as others – suffering a knee problem that has ruled him out since January, has recognised that Spurs’ good fortunes in regards to layoffs may not last, and that a blow to a key man could have hampered their campaign.

“We could have a better squad in terms of depth”, the England international told BBC Radio 5 live.
“Thankfully Dele [Alli] doesn’t really get any injuries but just imagine if that happened or someone like Christian [Eriksen] got injured.”
Alli and Eriksen provided a collective of 34 goals and 25 assists for the Premier League runners-up in all competitions, during a season where they made 50 and 48 club appearances respectively.
However, with plans and aspirations to move Tottenham to the next level and secure their first silverware since 2008, Mauricio Pochettino’s side must be strengthened over the summer in order to have the ability to counteract a serious injury problem.
Spurs came close yet again to clinching a trophy this season, finishing second in the league and losing-out in the semi-final’s of the FA Cup to Chelsea.
However, their Champions League form at temporary-home Wembley Stadium left a lot to be desired, and if improvements are to be made within the competition alongside Europe’s elite, Daniel Levy must delve into the summer transfer market and strengthen the young squad.
