Tottenham appear to have missed out on the signing of Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea, with SkySports reporting the Blues are closing on a deal.

Spurs still need reinforcements up front as alternatives to Harry Kane, and are likely to add one or two new faces this summer.

Here are five players they could bring in...

Vincent Janssen

Eredivisie top goalscorer Vincent Janssen should really now emerge as Tottenham Hotspur's first choice now, with Batshuayi out the picture.

He will cost around half of the price Chelsea are paying for Batshuayi, and Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf report Spurs have already held talks over his signature.

Antonio Sanabria

Tottenham are reported to be in discussions of the signing of Antonio Sanabria, report The Mail, and the Paraguayan would be an exciting addition.

At just 19, last season he scored 11 goals on loan at unfancied Spanish side Sporting Gijon.

Shane Long

Shane Long may not be the most exciting name on this list, but he could be one of the more effective, and is already acclimatised to the Premier League.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen recently praised Long, via Belgian newspaper Nieuwsblad, as one of the best strikers in England and a difficult opponent to face.

Carlos Bacca

Fresh from firing Sevilla to a second successive Europa League crown in 2014/15 (before they added a third), Carlos Bacca went on to sign for AC Milan.

He finished the season with 18 goals for the Italian champions, but they are unable to offer him Champions League football, which could give Spurs an edge in tempting him away.

Callum Wilson

Callum Wilson's season at Bournemouth was cut short by injury last season but he remains a highly regarded prospect.

The Mail reported in May that Spurs are considering a move for the striker, who at 24-years-old would fit nicely into their strategy of signing young, hungry players whose best years are ahead of them.
