Tottenham Hotspur transfer round-up: Five names linked with signing this week

White Hart Lane 5

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with signing some very good players over the past week.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been forced to endure an extremely mixed season so far.

Positive Spurs performances have been mixed in with poor defeats and the boss will be mulling over potential January transfer additions as he looks to improve on that consistency in the first team.

Here are five of the best players linked with moves to Tottenham Hotspur from the past week.

Jackson Martinez (FC Porto)

The FC Porto striker is thought to be one of Pochettino’s main attacking targets. The latest reports suggest that Spurs have moved ahead of Premier League rivals Liverpool in the race to get him from the Portuguese giants.

Hector Moreno (Espanyol)

Moreno is widely reported as a Mauricio Pochettino favourite. He’d be a top quality addition to the back of Tottenham’s team this winter and would make them more difficult to break down and play against over the rest of the season.

Javier Hernandez (Manchester United)

Hernandez admitted earlier this week that the next club he joins has to promise him playing time. Real Madrid are not going to sign the Mexican on a permanent deal from Manchester United, with Tottenham one of the teams linked with a deal for him.

Adrien Rabiot (Paris Saint-Germain)

Reports have suggested that Tottenham have agreed a deal with PSG for the midfielder, thanks to Tottenham technical director Franco Baldini. Rabiot is one of the most talented youngsters in French football.

Charlie Austin (Queens Park Rangers)

Charlie Austin’s form for QPR has sparked stories of potential interest from Tottenham. However, he wouldn’t be their first choice attacking target and would be more of a back up to the likes of Jay Rodriguez, Martinez and Hernandez.
