The North London faithful are always a little bit hesitant to talk about transfers here in the Football Transfer Tavern and after Tottenham Hotspur’s performance last summer – spending all their Gareth Bale money and getting very little out of it – we are not surprised at all.
This summer it was a relatively quiet affair for the club with Daniel Levy preferring to get in a manager who knows what he is doing and focus on bedding in the players who were brought in a year ago and failed to settle. Yes, Erik Lamela, we are looking at you.
Our regulars still think that another centre forward and a couple of other players are needed – and luckily there are a couple of current stars we think would slot in quite well at the club and indeed with their manager, Maurico Pochettino.
With that in mind, here are five players we think the Lilywhites should sign to bolster their squad this January.
