The top five players linked with signing for Spurs this week

White Hart Lane 6

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with some top quality players in the transfer market over the past week.

January is a big month for Tottenham Hotspur both on and off the pitch.

Mauricio Pochettino needs to get the balance right between focusing on performances and reviewing additions to his squad in the transfer market, who could make the difference over the second half of the season.

Confidence is high after a big win against Chelsea, with several players linked with Tottenham who could cause that confidence to grow further.

Here are five top players linked with signing for Spurs over the past week.

Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton)

Still being linked with signing for the club despite Ronald Koeman’s insistence that he’s not for sale.

Saido Berahino (West Brom)

A familiar name for any Tottenham fans regularly following transfer rumours. Spurs are still being linked as reports debate how expensive he could be.

Danny Ings (Burnley)

An extra forward has been suggested as a change Pochettino needs to make for weeks. Ings is rated at around the £7 million mark.

James McCarthy (Everton)

A strange rumour considering Spurs are well stocked in central midfield. However, he’d add grit and fight to the side.

Adrien Rabiot (Paris Saint-Germain)

The latest updates suggest Spurs are still interested in a deal, with links of their interest having existed for weeks.
