The former Arsenal and Leeds boss has brought in three new players at White Hart Lane during the close season, Ukrainian international Sergei Rebrov, and former Wimbledon players Ben Thatcher and Neil Sullivan, which has seen him pay-out £16 million in transfer fees alone.
Now Graham feels that he has brought in the best of the available talent and is focusing on preparing his new look squad for the forthcoming season.
"There's a lack of quality players available at the moment," explained Graham. "We will wait."
The club's pre-season schedule got off to a winning start on Wednesday night with Steffen Iversen netting twice, Chris Armstrong getting one and Les Ferdinand marking his return from a six month injury lay-off with a goal, to beat home side Skelleftea 4-0.
However, Graham is not getting carried away about his side's hopes of challenging for the Premiership title next season, despite his summer transfer activity.
"It's no secret that my squad is not as good as some of the bigger clubs that are in the top three or four positions," said Graham. "I have been here only two years and we still have work to do.
"My aim next season will be to qualify for Europe. The League is not possible but Europe is."
