Tottenham fans’ Wednesday morning started off in the best way possible after Spurs supporters were greeted with the news that their club have completed the permanent signing of Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid.
Undoubtedly one of the most sensible purchases of the summer so far with the Belgian international capable of playing at centre back, full back and in defensive midfield, Alderweireld opted not to sign for Southampton whom he spent a successful loan spell with last season.
Becoming Mauricio Pochettino’s third signing of the summer after both Kevin Wimmer and Kieran Trippier, Spurs fans would now like to see their Argentine boss splash out on a new striker to share the goalscoring burden with Harry Kane, not to mention a dominating central midfielder.
Etienne Capoue recently left the club for Watford with Benjamin Stambouli set to follow him to Vicarage Road while Paulinho was sold to China suggesting that Spurs are clearing the deadwood in order to pave the way for a new midfield arrival.
While it has been slow, Tottenham are clearly selecting their transfer targets very carefully and this approach is admirable given the way in which they hastily splashed the cash following the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.
But who exactly could be following Alderweireld to White Hart Lane this summer? Here’s five more guys that could be completing a Spurs transfer.
