Tottenham may be in fifth place in the Premier League table, but they are far from out of the race.

Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool have hardly looked infallible this season, and if Spurs can get their act together over the second half of the season then they could yet retain their spot in the Champions League qualification spaces.

To break into the top four, Spurs are going to need an injection of quality though, and Mauricio Pochettino has already identified the additions that the north London side need.

Spurs have been heavily linked with PSG duo Lucas Moura and Javier Pastore this week in the Telegraph, while they are also believed to be interested in Napoli man Amadou Diawara, The Sun report.

If Pochettino could bring in all three of the targets, it would be a highly impressive triple swoop for Spurs.

Moura looks closest to joining, and the Brazilian would offer Spurs a great deal of pace and creativity, which they have lacked in recent weeks.

Pastore, meanwhile, would be a simply stunning signing for the Lilywhites.

The Argentine is one of the top creators in Europe, and would provide some much needed competition to Christian Eriksen.

Diawara is the least high profile of the trio, but at 20, he looks to have the world at his feet.

And Pochettino should be given the funds to complete the triple swoop, as if Spurs could bring in all three players, it may just be the difference between making the top four or not.
