24 hours to go: Can Daniel Levy do a double deal for reported Tottenham Hotspur targets?

Daniel Levy

There are 24 hours to go until the transfer deadline, can Tottenham Hotspur pull off a deal for two strongly linked attackers?

Tottenham Hotspur eased to a weekend victory over West Brom, but with the North London derby next up, they will be under no illusions as to the need to kick on.

There is one day to go until the transfer deadline passes, yet that has not stopped the transfer rumours swirling. Here we take a look at the two seemingly most credible options and what they could do for the club.

Kevin Mirallas

The Evening Standard reported at the end of last week that Everton's Kevin Mirallas remained high on Tottenham's priority list.

The unsettled Everton attacker has 18 months remaining on his deal at Goodison Park, and is yet to sign a new contract. The paper claim that Atletico Madrid are also monitoring the situation of the Toffees star.

They state Mirallas is attracted at the prospect of playing with Belgian international teammates Jan Vertonghen and Nacer Chadli, but he would be cup-tied for this year's Europa League competition.

Spurs have not managed to convince Everton to do a deal at their highest offer so far of Aaron Lennon plus £3 million.

Mirallas has five Premier League goals this season for Everton, and can offer a goal threat from wide areas in a role which Clint Dempsey was bought for three seasons ago, but failed to flourish in.

Yevhen Konoplyanka

Ukrainian international Yevhen Konoplyanka is out of contract this summer, and The Mirror reported at the weekend Tottenham aim to sign him up on deadline day.

The paper claim Spurs are hopeful a bid of £5 million will be enough to convince Dnipro to sell, but there is also interest from Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United and Italian side Roma.

Like Mirallas, Konoplyanka offers tournament experience, having played at Euro 2012, and the ability to score goals from wide areas, having netted four in his last 11 starts for Dnipro.

Dnipro have more reason to sell that Everton, as the timing means he could leave on a free in a matter of months, while Roberto Martinez's side can at least get another season out of Kevin Mirallas.

Konoplyanka's price is a bargain for a player of his calibre, and he would be an upgrade on Aaron Lennon, purely on the basis that Mauricio Pochettino sees no value in starting the seemingly former England international.

Can Spurs pull off a deal for both?

Fans would surely be content to just see one arrive, having had to endure an unusually quiet transfer window so far.

Managing to snap up two would be typical transfer deadline from Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who has become renowned for being a late mover in the window.

Should both players arrive, it would give Spurs a real goal threat they need, easing the pressure on striker Harry Kane, and playmaker Christian Eriksen.

Each could chip in goals from midfield, and Mirallas would take no adjustment to Premier League football as Spurs aim for a top four finish.
