Here in the Football Transfer Tavern, our punters are sat back at the bar laughing at some of the suggestions from our landlord as to who Tottenham Hotspur could look to replace Jermain Defoe with.
The forward is of course on his way to the MLS with Toronto FC and that leaves the Lilywhites a little bit short at the top end of the field.
It is not exactly like they have found goals easy to come by this season, with the infamous ‘Soldado Pen’ featuring a fair bit on their list and now it seems that some more money needs to be spent and those top four places need to be pushed for.
What seemed to be the season where they would challenge for the title has turned into something rather far removed, but as our landlord pours some complimentary shots for our punters, he notes that all is not lost under Tim Sherwood, and there could well be some success yet for the North London side.
To do this they would certainly have to bring in another forward and whilst some rather high profile and top class names have been bandied around, we are more concerned with the ones they most certainly should not be making eyes at.
With that in mind here are five forwards they should avoid at all costs.
