Danny Welbeck, Alvaro Morata, Loic Remy & more linked with Spurs move

Loic Remy

Tottenham Hotspur have nabbed Southampton's ex boss and could complete deals for Manchester United star, Arsenal target & ex Newcastle favourite.

1): Loic Remy - Queens Park Rangers

In the past month alone, Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy - who spent the last season on loan at Newcastle United - has been media-linked with Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, back to Newcastle United and even to Bayern Munich, so Tottenham Hotspur have competition on their hands if they hope to lure the Frenchman to White Hart Lane.

Considering most of his passes and touches would have been in the attacking third due to his position on the pitch, Remy has a high passing accuracy of 81%. Last season, he contributed 30 key passes, provided three assists and scored 14 goals. He has a transfermarkt.co.uk valuation of £10.56m.

2): Danny Welbeck - Manchester United

United have an abundance of striking talent at Old Trafford with primary strike duo Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney keeping exceptional forwards like Javier Hernandez and Welbeck on the fringes. All have been linked with Stretford exits, yet only in the respective cases of the latter two are the rumours plausible due to their own ambitions of receiving increased pitch-time.

Everton may rival Tottenham for Welbeck's signature, as the Toffees were rumoured to be interested in the player last month (Express), but Spurs' interest surfaced more recently after The Telegraph claimed Welbeck has been frustrated with being played out of position under David Moyes. 

Welbeck has an even higher pass completion rate than Remy (87%), but is less creative (13 chances provided). He scored nine goals from 25 Premier League appearances last season.

3): Alvaro Morata - Real Madrid

At just 21 years of age and a transfermarkt.co.uk valuation of £12m, Morata - coveted by Arsenal as well as Spurs - could be the jewel in the crown of whomever is able to recruit him when the transfer market reopens for trading this summer.

Morata is able to play out wide on either side and also as a traditional centre forward, where he has the required height to challenge for aerial balls (6ft 3in). At Real Madrid he carved himself an excellent reputation as a supersub, capable of making Ole Gunnar-Solskjaer-style impact from the bench.

Morata made just three starts for Los Blancos (23 appearances in total), yet scored eight goals in La Liga - which is a remarkable impact rate of a goal scored once every 72 minutes he was on the field.

4): Michy Batshuayi - Standard Liege

At just 20-years-old, Michy is the youngest out of all the four players listed here, the cheapest (£7.04m) but arguably the biggest gamble due to his inexperience.

Together with the Daily Mail reporting that Batshuayi would be one of the first signings made by incoming boss Mauricio Pochettino this summer, the Belgium striker is also allegedly wanted by Arsenal, Everton and Swansea City.
