DC: Toby Alderweireld
An excellent addition from Atletico Madrid, Toby Alderweireld will surely become first choice for Spurs straight away after shining on loan at Southampton last year.
DC: Jan Vertonghen
Completing a Belgian central defensive pair is Jan Vertonghen, who remains a key part of his Tottenham team.
MC: Ryan Mason
A hugely improved player last season, one would expect Ryan Mason to be largely first choice in 2015/16, rotating with Nabil Bentaleb.
MC: James McCarthy
Targeted in an exciting deal from Everton, James McCarthy could come in to take the other central midfield spot at White Hart Lane, though Arsenal are also chasing the classy Republic of Ireland international.
