This week see's increasing speculation over January moves for Spurs and several other clubs, as they look to build on or panic buy their ways to a better season.
This morning I read that we are again looking to sign Willian from Shakhtar, but are supposedly still millions apart on valuation and also maintain an interest in Malaga playmaker Isco, who apparently isn't that bothered about joining us. Add Moutinho and Damiao, who are sure to be linked with us again and we are probably halfway there to knowing the main suggested winter targets for AVB.
It seems clear, based on the summer chat, that we are seriously looking at a player that can offer creativity and an ability to play either wide or central behind a striker. I also wonder how happy AVB has been with Dempsey and Sigurdsson in the role behind the main striker, where neither appear to have truly convinced, but is that down to them or the way we are currently playing? We still lack that killer ball from deep, which may also take us back to Porto for Moutinho, but do they need to sell and does the player still have as strong a desire to come?
Our defence looks pretty good, when everyone is fit, but will we again see talk of Michael Dawson leaving and if he goes, do we need an instant replacement or do we simply wait to replace Gallas, and be happy with four central defenders? In attack, we will hopefully have Defoe, Adebayor and Dempsey all capable of playing on their own, so is there a need to bring in a 4th striker, when we tent to play with only one? If we can get someone such as Llorente in for a vastly reduced fee, as he will be in the final six months of his contract, I would argue that it was a no brainer, but surely the bidding will be fierce from elsewhere.
Perhaps a new central defender, should Dawson leave. A play-maker and an attacking midfielder, that is happy either playing through the middle or wide, will be out main targets, but firstly is their any real urgency to get players in and if so, who should we go for and for how much???
