5 Players Tottenham Should Target for Transfer

The Lily Whites have fallen a long way since the loss of Gareth Bale last year. They have spent heavily, but were unable to compete for a UEFA Champions League spot. The lack of offensive firepower and defensive inconsistency has plagued the Spurs last season. Here is a list of players that Tottenham should target to once again be in the championship conversation.

Farfan is a veteran winger who has proven himself in the Bundesliga. The Peruvian forward/winger would offer Spurs a good attacking threat and a bit of consistency that they lacked since the departure of Gareth Bale.

Reports all summer have indicated that the Manchester United midfielder is surplus to Louis van Gaal’s side. Although the Belgian did not have a great season last term, he has shown in the past that he is capable of being world class. Fellaini should be signed to add a utility player in the Tottenham midfield.

The Arsenal captain is reportedly unsettled at the Emirates and is available for a sum close to $ 11 million. The Gunners will be reluctant to see their man leave for their local rivals, but they may not have a choice if they do not want to lose their captain for free next summer. The partnership between Vertoghen and Vermaelen is something that many soccer fans will want to see.

2. Isco

With the arrival of James Rodriguez, Isco seems to be surplus at Real Madrid CF. If the Spurs could get together a good amount of funds, Isco should be a prime target for Tottenham. The Real Madrid midfielder will add an incredible amount of creativity to the Spurs midfield and an additional attacking threat that Tottenham so desperately need.

It has only been a season since the Montenegrin forward made his way to Manchester City, but the lack of playing time could have unsettled Jovetic. The former ACF Fiorentina attacker is technically gifted and creative, which is something neither Soldao nor Adebayor offer Tottenham. Manchester City probably will not want to let their man go, but reports suggest they may need to free up funds to sign Radamel Falcao.
