3 players Tottenham should be keeping an eye on this weekend

Tottenham Hotspur watch - Nottingham Forest starlet, Eredivisie striker and Inter midfielder.

In our newest feature, we look at three players Tottenham should be keeping an eye on this weekend.

First up, we're going to look at two players that have already been linked with moves to White Hart Lane, along with one who Tottenham fans will no doubt want their scouting team to keep an eye out for.

Jamaal Lascelles

The 20-year-old defender has already been linked on numerous occasions with a move to White Hart Lane. Reports of a bid suggested in January never materialised and at least for now, the defender remains a key part of a Nottingham Forest side looking for promotion.

Anything other than a win for Forest is likely to be met with frustration. Especially as the next side in their fixture list is local-rivals Derby County. And going seven games without a win will make fans very anxious about that prospect.

Lascelles and co will therefore be under-pressure to put in a match-winning performance when they play Doncaster this afternoon.

Alfred Finnbogason

The 25-year-old Icelandic striker is another player to have been linked with a move to White Hart Lane in the past. He will no doubt be out to prove himself this weekend against one of Heerenveen's main rivals in the Eredivisie this season, Feynoord.

The striker has bagged goals at an alarming rate this season, as well as assists and at present is the divisions top goalscorer with 23 goals. Which is even more impressive when you take into account he has only played 24 matches, as well as providing seven assists.

The match against Feynoord gives Heerenveen the chance to potentially move within two points of the Europa League spots. So they will be hoping it doesn't turn out to be a rare goalless game for their main striker.

Fredy Guarin

The 27-year-old Colombian midfielder was a well-documented target for a couple of the top Premier League sides in January, however, no move materialised and he stayed in Milan.

After a barren run of goals, the midfield general will be desperate to see one of his efforts hit the back of the net and he won't get many better chances than against Verona, who have one of the league's leakiest defences.

Although, the Internazionale midfielder was only briefly linked with a move to Spurs in January, it wouldn't surprise me if they were keeping a keen eye on him.
