A deal to bring in the French holding midfielder appears to have only been slowed by the international break. The addition of Capoue will further strengthen Tottenham in the middle of the park, while also offering cover for an injury plagued back-line.
However Andre Villas-Boas has hinted that the Premier League club may not be ready to settle yet, with more players already in the transfer pipeline.
“We still have lots of things to do. The last week in the transfer window can be surprising,” AVB said.
“I can’t tell you we have stopped in the transfer market because we haven’t, this means players coming in and players going out.”
In light of potentially imminent acquisitions, here are FIVE players that could follow Capoue to Spurs.
