How many of Spurs' £100m signings will still be there next season?

Tottenham splashed out £100m on new talent after the sale of Gareth Bale, but how many will see a second season at White Hart Lane?

Bale completed a world record £86m switch to Real Madrid last summer, and Spurs decided to try and reinvest that money by bringing a number of players to the club in a bid to break back into the top four of the Premier League.

But manager Andre Villas-Boas only made it to December before being given the axe by chairman Daniel Levy, with Tim Sherwood taking over – and things haven't got much better. With a top four finish now looking all but impossible, Spurs are almost certainly set to make another managerial appointment this summer.

It could be a case of back to the drawing board for Tottenham, with many of their signings last summer now under threat and linked with moves away already – how many of them will stay and who will go?

Vlad Chiriches

The Romanian international impressed during his chances in the first team, but an injury has kept him sidelined for some time now. With Michael Dawson looking slow and cumbersome, Chiriches could be seen as the future at centre back for Tottenham, particularly with question marks over Jan Vertonghen's future and little depth behind him. Verdict: Stay.

Etienne Capoue

French midfielder Capoue looked like a solid signing when he arrived from Toulouse, but the 25-year-old has found it hard to hold down a first team spot, and was heavily linked with a January exit. Italian sides Napoli and Inter look set to make moves to sign Capoue, who said earlier this year that English people don't know much about foreign players. Verdict: Leave.


Brazilian Paulinho arrived with his expectations after his £17m switch from Corinthians, and whilst he started the season well, he has somewhat faded under Sherwood. Real Madrid remain interested in the 25-year-old, and a good World Cup for Brazil could put him back in the shop window, leaving his future hanging in the balance. Verdict: Up in the air.

Nacer Chadli

Chadli was seen as a depth signing when he arrived from FC Twente, and he's proven to be just that – but mostly because he hasn't impressed when he's been started. Chadli is in risk of losing his place in the Belgian team, and with his performances not getting any better, it may be best to let Chadli go and get first team football elsewhere. Verdict: Leave.

Erik Lamela

Seen as the replacement for Gareth Bale, Lamela was bought for around £30m, and was seen as a huge coup for the North London side. But the Argentine winger hasn't settled in England, failing to acclimatise to the physical nature of the Premier League. Injuries haven't helped either, and with a number of Italian and Spanish sides eyeing up the 22-year-old, he could be out of White Hart Lane soon. Verdict: Up in the air.

Christian Eriksen

The best of Spurs' summer signings has been Danish playmaker Eriksen, who impressed under both Villas-Boas and Sherwood. Tottenham's most creative player should now be the focal point of the team, and who they choose to build around in the future. His performances have no doubt attracted interest from elsewhere, but Spurs must keep the 22-year-old. Verdict: Stay.

Roberto Soldado

Having struggled to score goals last season, Spurs made a big move to bring in Valencia hitman Soldado, who had scored goals for fun in Spain. But much like Lamela, Soldado has struggled to adjust to English football, with the majority of his goals coming from the penalty spot. Atletico Madrid have been linked with a swoop for Soldado, who may jump at the chance to return to Spain. Verdict. Leave.
