Tottenham fans won’t be too disappointed to their start this season in terms of points – The Lilywhites sit in seventh place in the English table but remain just five points off Premier League leaders Arsenal.
That being said, something is definitely amiss at White Hart Lane. The North Londoners are averaging less than a goal per game, and have let vital opportunities slip at home against Newcastle and West Ham.

With that in mind, here’s FIVE players, potentially available to the Lilywhites in January, that could provide AVB with some much-needed alternatives in terms of style and tactics.
