The top five players linked with signing for Tottenham Hotspur this week - Remy, Fazio and more

A look at the best players to have been linked with moves to Tottenham Hotspur this week.

Mauricio Pochettino has played a smart and patient game with regards to the transfer market this summer.

He’s added in key positions and hasn’t bought players he hasn’t had a direct need for in his first team squad.

Spurs continue to be linked with potential additions before the end of this summer’s transfer window and the club could still gain some top players on long term deals.

We’ve taken a look at five of the best.

Loic Remy (QPR)

Reports this morning have suggested that Tottenham are keen on an £11 million deal. How they structure the deal remains to be seen but they could go with a straight cash offer or try to include players going the other way, which would help to free up squad space.

Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton)

This has been one of the longest running rumours of the transfer window. The latest suggestions have been that Spurs could consider a swap deal with Andros Townsend heading the other way. However, a local paper has suggested the Saints will pull the plug on trying to sign the winger if Spurs try to get Schneiderlin included in the deal.

Mattia Destro (Roma)

Tottenham Hotspur are one of the clubs to have been linked with making a move for Mattia Destro. Roma rate him at around £20 million, which has reportedly caused Chelsea to try and get a player included in the deal. Spurs could beat their London rivals to the forward if they pay a straight cash fee.

Federico Fazio (Sevilla)

Fazio appears to be very close to a move to Spurs. At £8 million he’d be a good value buy for the club and the fact he has captaincy experience can only mean good things. However, a deal may not go through until Spurs have been able to free up some squad space.

Memphis Depay (PSV)

The Dutch winger is another player to have been consistently linked with Spurs over the past few weeks. Spurs could be forced into making their move for the winger due to apparent interest from Juventus. He’s rated at around the £15 million mark, which is well within what Spurs can afford.
