Five players linked with signing for Tottenham Hotspur this week

Tottenham Hotspur Re Generation

Slow news day at Tottenham Hotspur? Think again...

It may be the beginning of October, but a look at news surrounding Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening and you would be mistaken for thinking it was January 1 - the opening of the transfer window for all the speculation floating around.

While some pieces may be more apt for April 1 - Fool's Day - we have taken a look at the five players linked inwards...

Dominico Criscito

Dominico Criscito is an Italian left-back who plays for Zenit St Petersburg in Russia, who would fill a position at the club where Spurs lack depth. He infamously withdrew from Italy's Euro 2012 squad after being implicated in a match-fixing scandal so not to bring shame on his country - and was later cleared of all charges. He has been at Zenit since 2011 and has Champions League experience.

Moses Odubajo

The Metro has claimed Spurs are monitoring Leyton Orient winger Moses Odubajo. The 20-year-old winger was born in south London and has made more than 70 appearances for the League One side. Spurs are said to be willing to offer £1 million but Orient want at least double that.

Ibai Gomez

The Sun claim Tottenham want to sign Athletic Bilbao striker Ibai Gomez in January. The 23-year-old wears the club's number 11 shirt, and has two goals and one assist in six La Liga appearances so far this campaign. He scored four and assisted nine in 2012/13.

Cyrus Christie

David Pleat is said to have made a personal scouting mission on behalf of Tottenham for Coventry City right-back Cyrus Christie. Christie is 21-years-old and has been a regular for the Sky Blues this campaign. Coventry turned down two bids from Huddersfield Town to buy the prospect ahead of the transfer deadline.

Neilton

Neilton, a Brazilian dubbed the 'next Neymar', is claimed to be on Tottenham's radar by the Express. The prospect is said to have rejected a new contract extension at Santos - placing the club in tricky position with his current deal set to expire next summer. The 19-year-old has also recently been linked with Sevilla.
