The summer transfer window will prove a crucial one for Tottenham Hotpsur, with it perhaps being more about who they manage to keep hold of rather than sign.
Gareth Bale’s immediate future will no doubt remain the priority, with the club having to fend off interest from a host of Europe’s top clubs for the PFA Player and Young Player of The Year.
Bale looks likely to stay at White Hart Lane for at least another season, but will demand the club bring in reinforcements to strengthen their chances of Champions League qualification, or perhaps mounting a title challenge.
Andre Villas-Boas has spoken of needing just a couple more key players in order to mount that challenge, with a creative midfielder and a top striker being the priority.
The former Chelsea manager will have to be shrewd in the transfer market, especially now he does not have the Champions League bonus money to play with.
The club will no doubt have their name linked with an array of talent, but it is crucial the right signings are made. Here we have compiled a list of five players, that despite the specualtion, we think Tottenham simply do not need.
