According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are looking to bring in five new signings during this summer's transfer window.

Mauricio Pochettino's men ended their season with 6-1 and 7-1 wins over Leicester City and Hull City respectively, finishing off their campaign in some style.

A second-placed finish is another strong campaign for Spurs and Pochettino, and having possessed the Premier League's best attack, best defence and top goalscorer, there may be some disappointment at finishing the season without a trophy.

Now, the Daily Mail report that Pochettino is already looking towards the transfer market to beef up his squad, with five players wanted; a centre back, a full back, two midfielders and a striker.

Tottenham have a strong base of England internationals, such as Kyle Walker, Eric Dier, Danny Rose, Dele Alli and Harry Kane, so here are five English talents Spurs could consider to fill those needs this summer...

Centre back: Ben Gibson, Middlesbrough

Whilst Hull's Harry Maguire may also fit the bill, Gibson arguably impressed more this season. A Middlesbrough youth product, the 24-year-old has England aspirations, and in a World Cup year, he can't afford to be playing in the Championship with Boro. A deal for Gibson may be pricey, possibly costing somewhere between £20million and £30million, but he could replace Kevin Wimmer as a left-footed defender at Pochettino's disposal, and he has has the potential to become one of the best centre backs in the country. If Spurs don't want to splash big money on a new centre back, then Maguire may be the better choice, but if it's simply player v player, Gibson gets the nod.

Full back: Ryan Sessegnon, Fulham

17-year-old Sessegnon has been a sensation with Fulham this season, recording a remarkable seven goals and three assists in his first ever Championship season. Sessegnon can play at left back or on the left of midfield, making him ideal for the left wing back role in Pochettino's often-favoured 3-4-2-1 system, and he looks to be a star of the future in English football. He may not feature much immediately, but he can learn from Danny Rose and Ben Davies, before eventually taking a starting role in the Tottenham side – unless he can force his way into contention immediately, just as Dele Alli did in 2015.

Central midfield: James Ward-Prowse, Southampton & Ross Barkley, Everton

Pochettino worked with Ward-Prowse at Southampton, and the 22-year-old is finally beginning to blossom as Southampton's next big star. With four goals and four assists this term, the midfielder showed real quality for the Saints, earning an England call-up in March. With exceptional delivery from set pieces and versatility to play centrally or out wide, Ward-Prowse could be a top signing for Spurs, and manager Pochettino even told ESPN in March that he is a big fan of the Saints star.

Meanwhile, Everton ace Barkley, 23, looks set to move on this summer given that he has yet to agree a new contract with the Toffees. Barkley's current deal expires in 2018, meaning Everton may have to cash in now before he can leave for free, and he has enjoyed a decent season with five goals and eight assists. The England ace is better further forward, but he could play a central role driving forward to support the Spurs attack, just as Mousa Dembele has shown. Pochettino will know how his Spurs side miss Dembele's drive when he is missing, and Barkley could bring similar attributes on the ball – but striking a sensibly-priced deal with Everton could be hard work.

Striker: Andre Gray, Burnley

Vincent Janssen's struggles in front of goal mean that Spurs will again be in the market for a striker this summer, and Burnley's Gray may fit the bill as a player who can support Harry Kane. Whilst Janssen's game is founded on leading the line and holding up play, Gray bring something totally different. His pace and power would give Pochettino a new dimension off the bench or up front alongside Kane, and his record of nine goals in his first Premier League season is impressive. The 25-year-old is out of contract in a year's time, meaning Spurs could land themselves a bargain with Burnley possibly looking to cash in. Gray is far from a big-name addition, but Spurs wouldn't be able to land a truly world class striker given Kane's standing as the clear first-choice at White Hart Lane, so a cut-price deal for Gray would make sense.
