Crouch admits he is astonished at the level of spending at the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool but the England striker is still confident Spurs are serious contenders for a top-four place.
"It's amazing when you look at the other teams around us have spent. It's a hell of a lot of money," Crouch said.
"I look around our dressing room though and there are a lot of players there who I wouldn't swap for theirs.
"I still believe that we have more than enough ability.
"The aim has to be to get into the top four. It's going to be difficult. There are some top sides up there that have strengthened but I would still put ourselves right up there with a chance."
