The 10 transfers to ‘inject life’ into Tottenham this summer
Tottenham Hotspur may well be flying high at both home and abroad this season, but their success under Andre Villas-Boas has been made all the more impressive by a striking department that’s offered them very little – if anything at all – in terms of consistency.
