Spurs travel to Emirates Stadium for Saturday’s north London derby after having finished sixth last season as the Gunners secured a top-four spot and Champions League qualification.
Spurs need to re-think their structure and how they sign players
And former Tottenham midfielder Redknapp feels that the Lilywhites are now further behind their local rivals than ever.
“A few seasons ago Tottenham had closed the gap on Arsenal – but now they’re further away than they have been in a long time,” Redknapp told Sky Sports News.
“Spurs are miles away from being a top four team now and that’s down to their transfer policy. The club haven’t spent their money with a great thought-process.
“The director of football, Franco Baldini, has brought a lot of players in but you can’t just throw them together and expect it to work, you need a system.
“Spurs need to re-think their structure and how they sign players.”
