Summer Targets

Putting all the manager talk aside for one minute, the individual performances and errors of some players this season have been awful, So who do Spurs need to sign this summer and who needs to be shown the door?

We obviously need a left back, centre back and a decent winger would be nice too. But who? My vote for left back actually goes to Ben Davies, Shaw would be my first choice but he will be snapped up by someone with far more clout than Spurs.

Ben Davies played well at Swansea when given his opportunity and has already shown he is able to play at Premiership level. He is already, in my opinion, better than Rose and Naughton who should both be sold this summer.

Other options are Alex Sandro from Porto, a more attacking left back and a young Brazilian. Samuel Umtiti is another choice too, he has played at left back and centre back for Lyon so could be a useful member of the squad.

Centre Back is a difficult one. Dawson isn't good enough despite his amazing attitude, his time is up, Kaboul isn't fit enough Kaboul is out of contract in the summer, so also has the option to walk, whether we want him or not, Chiriches is hot or cold and I would take a sensible sum for him also.

Vertonghen would be my first choice, but certain rumours say that he wants out - I will ignore these hopefully and if Sherwood leaves hope these rumours die down. My first choice transfer in would be Benedikt Howedes from Schalke. A solid German option, can't go wrong with a German. A sticking point here is that Schalke will be taking part in next seasons Champions League again. A great defender with plenty of experience but he might see it as a step down.

Other options include Dejan Lovren from Southampton who we could do far worse than signing and Tin Jedvaj from Roma, who we had been linked too before his move to Roma he is a young player and not someone who would be first team ready - so that will work against him too.

We will assume that Lamela is actually alive and capable of playing football and that he would be in the mix next year, Aaron Lennon will be ever present as always and Townsend is a good rotation option.

Chadli should go in my opinion, he isn't being played as a winger and although he works his socks off isn't as good as the other three mentioned. I am looking toward left wingers, so Konoplyanka and Lallana stand out (Lallana plays on the right a lot for Southampton but is equally adept on the left) However, Kevin Grosskreutz at Dortmund looks an accomplished player and has dropped down the pecking order this season. He was vital in Dortmund's Bundesliga revival and would probably be my first pick.

I also think we should also go in for Lukaku, try and get him before the World Cup. A figure of around 25m would probably test Chelsea and Mourinho, if they really don't want him - that could be enough. Chelsea are still bitter about the Luka Modric thing though so that could be a non-starter. Any other ideas?
