The top five players linked with signing for Tottenham Hotspur this week: Garay, Benatia and more

Ezequiel Garay for Benfica

Benfica, Dynamo Kiev, AS Roma, QPR and FC Zurich stars all feature.

Tottenham have reportedly decided that Tim Sherwood won’t be the man to lead them into next season as they have another crack at getting into the Champions League.

However, that hasn’t stopped the North Londoners from being linked with some of the best players across Europe, as they look to make slight adjustments to the squad this summer ahead of the new campaign.

Here are the top five players linked with Spurs this week.

Ezequiel Garay (Benfica)

Garay was offered the chance to experience playing against Tottenham up close and personal in the recent Europa League clash between Spurs and Benfica. The Express claims the club see Garay as the ideal replacement for Jan Vertonghen who refused to rule out leaving the club earlier this season.

Younes Belhanda (Dynamo Kiev)

Spurs are one of the sides thought to be interested in signing Belhanda. The latest situation sees Montpellier trying to cancel the deal that took him to Kiev, which would mean he’s up for grabs again this summer. He could play down either wing for the current side.

Mehdi Benatia (AS Roma)

Benatia has been linked with a move to Tottenham over the last few weeks as another potential defensive signing. His agent has admitted that he’ll hold talks with the Serie A giants at the end of the current season as he mulls over whether to take a big move or stay in the Italian city.

Loic Remy (Queens Park Rangers)

QPR boss and former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has conceded that the French forward is likely to leave the club this summer. He’s rated at around the £10 million mark which Tottenham can afford. However, Redknapp has revealed the player has apparently admitted he wants to play Champions League football.

Loris Benito (FC Zurich)

A latest report from TalkSport suggests that Tottenham could still pull off a deal for the Swiss defender. He has six caps for the Swiss under-21 side and is rated at £3 million, which could be an absolute bargain for the White Hart Lane club. Tottenham do need some defensive support this summer.
