They may have been pipped to second place by their arch rivals in the Premier League, though the Spurs supporting punters in the Transfer Tavern may well have something to put over the Arsenal lot soon.
Though the rivalry between the two North London sides needs little to make it any more fierce, the notion of a big name player choosing one over the other certainly adds another layer of spice.
For a number of months now, the Gunners have been strongly linked with Inter Milan star Marcelo Brozovic to bolster their engine room.
The Croatian midfielder is highly regarded on the continent and is on loan at the San Siro from Dinamo Zagreb, with the option of making it a permanent deal.
Still, that did not stop links with a move to the Emirates for much of the past few months.
However, after the signing of Granit Xhaka, Italian website Tutto Mercato Web claims that Spurs could now steal a march on the 23-year old as they bid to draft in reinforcements ahead of a Champions League campaign.
How will Spurs fare in the Champions League next season? Better or worse than Arsenal?
