"Of course, they were never going to go out and buy an Antoine Griezmann or an Angel Di Maria, but I think they do have to make a couple of big signings", Jenas told GQ Magazine.
This will not be music to the ears of Spanish boss Benitez who has so far admitted his frustration in not being able to strengthen his squad to compete in the hard and challenging Premier League.
In a summer of high-octane transfer spending, Spurs are yet to join the fray but boss Pochettino is unconcerned.
Levy has stated that he believes Spurs now have the squad to compete for the Premier League title, and do not need to spend big money like other clubs have in this window. The most high profile has been the departure of England right back Kyle Walker to Manchester City for a staggering £50 million, which is a great deal of money, but also a move that weakens Spurs' back line. Levy has even criticised the huge transfer sums paid by Tottenham's direct rivals on new players.
Rose's sentiment has reportedly been backed by other members of the Spurs' squad, who feel that they too should be paid more than Levy's strict wage structure allows.
If Kane is injured - like he was for chunks of last season - backup striker Vincent Jansen has not proven himself a capable replacement. Sissoko was handed a start against Juventus in pre-season and, despite a few erratic moments, generally impressed.
Mo Farah & Usain Bolt prepare for final events
The women's 4x400m team of Zoey Clark, Laviai Nielson, Perri Shakes-Drayton and Emily Diamond qualified in second from their heat. Usain Bolt finished third in the 100 metres final earlier in the World Champs, in what was his final individual race.
Otherwise it should be a familiar side with Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli looking to carry over their excellent form from last season as they support Golden Boot victor Harry Kane in attack. So why aren't players arriving? Arsenal faced similar issues from the mid- to late-noughties. When I play with my son or my wife, I try to win.
Tottenham won't win the Premier League title this season because they're playing their home games at Wembley.
Spurs have won twice in ten attempts since the new Wembley reopened in 2007 and struggled there when it became their home for European football last season. So, effectively, they will play all of their matches away from home.
"For a long time there was the big four, but nowadays there are six teams competing for those Champions League slots and I see it as two groups of three", Jenas added.
The quality of the opposition was good in nearly all of those matches, but Tottenham did seem like a fish out of water in the unfamiliar surroundings.
Glass half full: Tottenham already had an excellent team and their young players are only going to be better for their experience over the last couple of seasons.
