Tottenham failed to qualify for the Champions League and now next season they will be playing Europa League football on the cold thursday nights which comes with players rotations problems and to solve that problem you need more players on different positions. Spurs suffered a late season collaps because of their involvement in the Europa League last season and they will be looking to avoid that and build on their top 5 finsih.

They will most probably lose Gareth Bale to Real Madrid or Manchester United, therefor they will have money to spend in the summer transfer window but what players they will be looking to buy in the very competitive offseason ? lets take a look at their targets and options.

Signings Completed: None
Released: William Gallas (released), David Bentley (released), John Bostock (released)
What they need: Striker, attacking midfielder
Possible Departures: Gareth Bale, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Michael Dawson

Transfer Targets:

  • David Villa (Barcelona)
  • Damiao (Internacional)
  • Younes Belhanda (Montpellier)
  • Christian Atsu (Porto)
  • Carlos Sanchez (River Plate)


Leandro Damiao – Internacional
Positions: Striker, Age: 23, Price: 18M GBP

He has been links with Spurs in the last 1 year, first with harry Redknapp in charge of the club while Andrea Villa Boes is also said to be interested in him. He is a fast agile player who play his trade in Brazilian league but want to move to Europe finaly with Napoli also said to be interested in him.

Christian Benteke – Aston Villa
Position: Striker – Age: 22 – Price: Around 11M GBP

Aston Villa striker who is almost certain to leave the club with two London rivals Spurs and Arsenal chasing for his signature. He had a wonderfull season in Premier League last term for a very poor Villa side, and reported that he would like to move to Arsenal with Spurs is also possible destination.

David Villa – Barcelona

Again Arsenal and Spurs are chasing the forward, but Wenger’s interest in him has been diminshed as he has turned his attention to Steven Jevotic, and Spurs is a likely place for him as Barcelona will be willing to offload him cheap now as they already bought Neymar.

Thomas Ince – Blackpool
Position: Winger – Age: 20 – Price:

Highly rated young player from Blackpool already scored 24 goals for them in 70 odd matches and Spurs will like to bring him to White Hart Lane for the cover of Aeron Lennon.

Other Possible Targets for Spurs:

  2. Tresor Mputu – Mazembe
  3. Borja Valero – Fiorentina
  4. Pablo Osvaldo – Roma
  5. Matej Vydra – Udinese
