During the summer, much to my personal disagreement, many pundits claimed the Premier League title race had become a six-horse affair, with Tottenham and Liverpool the two dark horses to complicate matters for last season’s top four.

Others, including myself, dismissed such an absurd hypothesis, but we are now six games into the new campaign, and the Lilywhites sit pretty in third place with 13 points, while both Manchester clubs remain some way from Champions League spots (City in 7th and United in 12th) following dual surprise defeats at the weekend.

So with that in mind, and Tottenham’s recent rise to prominence taken into account, we take a look at FIVE potential signings to be made in the winter transfer window that can improve the North London outfit’s title hopes, however large or small they may actually be.
