White Hart Lane side already planning how to spend funds accrued from potential sale of Welsh international.
The Daily Express claims that Tottenham are already planning what to do with the funds they accrue from the sale of Welsh winger Gareth Bale.
Andre Villas-Boas may well be loathed to lose the 23 year old wide-man but if Bale makes it clear he wants to seek a move away from White Hart Lane then offers of £70m will surely be accepted by chairman Daniel Levy.
With that in mind the North London side have set their sights on Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker Henrik Mkhitaryan, Ajax youngster Christian Eriksen and Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo.
Perhaps significantly this trio would not appear to include a player who could act as a ready made like for like replacement for Bale, but nonetheless do represent a collection of talent that could greatly improve areas of the Tottenham squad.
Armenian international Mkhitaryan and Christian Eriksen could represent the addition of a goal-scoring midfield presence, the type of player that is perhaps missing from Villas-Boas’s side. Both players are apparently keen to leave the leagues they are currently plying their trade in and would certainly see a move to the Premier League as a step in the right direction.
Similarly a move for Alvaro Negredo would resolve the lack of effective striking options in the current Tottenham squad.
Jermain Defoe has borne the brunt of the goal-scoring burden this term, with Emmanuel Adebayor failing to impress since making his temporary move to Tottenham a permanent one. However the England international has hit something of a goal-scoring drought at club level, failing to net in his past nine Premier League appearances.
Sevilla forward Negredo is an experienced forward who has been a prolific La Liga marksman for the past six seasons, during which he has racked up 91 goals in 197 appearances.
