Ryan Giggs believes that Tottenham Hotspur are likely to fall short in the Premier League title race next season because of their lack of signings this summer.

Spurs were one of the most consistent teams in the Premier League last term as they seriously challenged Chelsea for the top-flight title.

However, they ended up missing out on a first Premier League crown as they finished in second place under Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham are now preparing for a season away from White Hart Lane as they get ready to play their home games at Wembley next term.

Spurs have not yet made a single signing in this summer’s transfer window, and Giggs feels that their lack of transfer activity could end up costing them next season.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Giggs said: “Tottenham have a really exciting squad and a great manager in Mauricio Pochettino, but everybody is asking whether they can continue to match sides without signings.

“I think they need a couple, not to improve their starting line-up but to make the squad better, while they’ve also got the Wembley factor, so they really need to get off to a good start.”

Tottenham are also preparing for a return to the Champions League next season after they ended up second in the Premier League table.

Pochettino’s Spurs side were beaten by Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals back in April as they ended the campaign without a trophy.
