Ten players the White Hart Lane side should consider signing up.

10. Toby Alderweireld (Ajax)
After ruthlessly ridding the club of Croatians in January, Andre Villas-Boas is starting a collection of his own in North London – Belgians. It’s not a bad idea, given the wealth of talent emerging from across the Channel and Moussa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen have already impressed since joining Spurs in the summer.
Versatile defender Alderweireld has admitted he is keen to follow his former Ajax teammate Vertonghen to White Hart Lane in the future. The 23-year-old Belgium international can play anywhere across the back four and, like his compatriot, should be available at a bargain price of around £6m.
9. Leandro Damiao (Internacional)
The Damiao to Spurs transfer saga is threatening to become the most long-running and boring in Premier League history. Spurs have been tracking the powerful striker even since agreeing a strategic partnership (they’re not pointless, honestly) with Internacional in 2010.
But after five transfer windows of fruitless negotiations, counter-negotiations, bids and talks, the North Londoners are no closer to signing the 22-year-old. Damiao has admitted he is interested in following compatriot and former Inter teammate Sandro to White Hart Lane in the future but Inter have slapped a hefty price-tag on the Selecao star’s head and again look in no mood to do business in January.
