Report: Tottenham's January transfer budget revealed - Who should they buy?

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham Hotspur will have plenty of money to spend on new recruits this month.

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur have a whopping £35 million to spend in the January transfer window. 

Spurs are expected to bring in a number of additions this month, as Mauricio Pochettino looks to bolster the quality of his squad, and in this piece we take a look at three players they could spend their budget on. 

Fabian Delph (Aston Villa) - £8 million

Delph has been on Tottenham Hotspur's wishlist for a considerable amount of time now and it is easy to see why.

Blessed with pace, power and technical ability, Delph looks the complete midfielder and he could be available for a cut price.

Delph remains an important player for Villa, but his contract expires in the summer and the club understandably don't want to lose him on a free.

Therefore, the chance to raise some money from his sale is likely to be an opportunity they cannot refuse and Spurs could look to take advantage of this. 

Tottenham are said to be more confident of landing Delph than any other player, with his arrival at White Hart Lane expected before the end of the month. 

Christian Benteke (Aston Villa) - £20 million 

Spurs should not stop their spending at Villa Park with the addition of Delph, as they should also try and negotiate a deal for Benteke.

Tottenham are in need of a striker, even if Harry Kane's remarkable form has meant that it is not as much of a priority as it once was, and Benteke looks the best option to fill that role.

The Belgian has a strike rate of nearly a goal every two games during his time with the Claret and Blue and that scoring ratio would only improve with the increased service he would receive at White Hart Lane.

The addition of Benteke could be the most important one that Tottenham make during the next month, as his goals would give them an excellent chance of making the top four. 

Hector Moreno (Espanyol) - £6 million

Moreno has previously worked with Pochettino and his arrival could help them further tighten up what has been an improving back line. 

Spurs have started to look a more solid unit in recent weeks, but more defensive options may be needed before they reach the standard that Pochettino is hoping for.  

Federico Fazio and Jan Vertonghen have formed a reliable partnership at the heart of Spurs's defence in recent weeks, but there's a lack of other trustworthy options should anything happen to either of the pair and Moreno's arrival would help solve that problem.
