Harry Redknapp thinks Tottenham could challenge for the title if he is able to sign two 'top players'.
Spurs boss also determined to keep hold of Bale
Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes his squad would be capable of challenging for the Premier League title if he is able to sign two 'top players'.
Previously underachieving Spurs have made drastic strides since the former Portsmouth boss arrived at White Hart Lane in 2008 and they are now a genuine force.
The North London club are preparing to meet Inter Milan in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night to give a measure of progress.
But Redknapp wants improvements and is keen to use the transfer market, with a centre-back and a striker reported as priorities, to make Spurs domestic title contenders.
Redknapp said: "Tottenham may be one or two big signings away from being a team that could win the title.
"One or two players in the right positions, and I'm talking about two top, top, players in the right positions.
"If we could go and do that, Tottenham could win the league in a couple of years. This squad is just so full of talent anyway, players who have made their mark.
"Chairman Daniel Levy has done such a great job backing my judgment and improving the squad and the club, that I really believe we're not far away from that level."
Redknapp has already jokingly admitted his interest in want-away Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, but he would likely be priced out of the market for the England star.
While the Spurs boss wants to add some elite talent to his squad, he is also adamant that he will not allow key asset Gareth Bale, 21, to leave amid speculation the Wales winger is a target for a host of European sides.
Redknapp said: "I know there's going to be loads of clubs after Bale because he's one of the most wanted young players in the world, but we don't want to sell him.
"He is one of the very best left-sided players in the world and he's still a young boy, he's a fantastic player."
