Tottenham are desperate to get back into Premier League action, with supporters inside the Football Transfer Tavern spending the international break trying to get their shock 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle United out of their systems.
That defeat saw Andre Villas-Boas’ side come in for plenty of stick, as it was in fact the third consecutive Premier League game the club had failed to score from open play in.
AVB spent the summer recruiting over £100 million worth of new talent, after selling Gareth Bale to Real Madrid in a world record deal.
The two most expensive purchases, Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela are yet to shine, with Lamela barely making it off the bench, and Soldado managing just one goal from open play so far this season.
Luckily, the Spanish forward can take an excellent penalty, and three successful spot kicks have boosted his tally to four for the season.
AVB insists his side need time to gel, and are far from the finished article – all the usual phrases you produce when things aren’t going so well.
And the Tottenham boss is set to add more new faces in January if reports are to be believed.
With all the many names being linked with a switch to White Hart Lane in January, we have identified the five signings we feel are the most attainable.
