SIX transfers Tottenham could complete in January

Tottenham Hotspur have had a decent start to the new Premier League campaign, picking up two wins and one loss as they sit in sixth place.

Based on their displays, it looks as though Mauricio Pochettino has managed to build a strong team, but it is still known that he will be searching for a midfield general and a striker once the club is allowed to buy players again.

With that in mind, here are SIX possible transfer targets Spurs could snap up in the upcoming January transfer window.

Fredy Guarin

Name: Freddy Guarin
Age: 28
Position: Midfield (Centre, Right)
Nationality: Colombia
Club: Inter Milan
Price: ?

Tottenham Hotspur had placed a formal bid of £10million plus Roberto Soldado to try and sign Fredy Guarin from Inter Milan, but saw the offer rejected over the summer. Yet they could now be preparing a new and improved deal.

Last season he provided nine assist and scored four goals from 31 appearances and is seen as one of the priority targets Mauricio Pochettino is said to want at White Hart Lane once the January transfer window opens.

Jay Rodriguez

Name: Jay Rodriguez
Age: 25
Position: Left Wing / Striker
Nationality: England
Club: Southampton
Price: £10 – £15 million

Jay Rodriguez is currently sidelined with a knee injury, but could be set for a return very soon as he may need to slowly work his way back into the new-look Southampton side.

Prior to his lengthy spell away from the Saints’ XI, he was in remarkable form notching 15 goals from 33 appearances, a display which tipped him to be part of Roy Hodgson’s World Cup squad in Brazil.

Memphis Depay

Name: Memphis Depay
Age: 20
Position: Left Wing
Nationality: Netherlands
Club: PSV Eindhoven
Price: £10 – £15 million

Memphis Depay was edging towards a summer move to White Hart Lane, but instead decided to sign a contract extension up until 2018, quashing any talk of an earlier switch.

However, even though he has penned a new deal, there is still the possibility of Tottenham move if they can conjure up a mouth-watering deal to PSV to force a move. Depay is also being tracked by Manchester United, so if they find out Spurs are making a move, Louis van Gaal may want to be reunited with the Dutch winger.

Morgan Schneiderlin

Name: Morgan Schneiderlin
Age: 24
Position: Defensive Midfield
Nationality: France
Club: Southampton
Price: £14 – £18 million

The Morgan Schneiderlin transfer story was a big saga during the summer window as Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur were refusing to sell players to each other despite the fact that both sides had targets in mind.

Recent reports suggest that Schneiderlin may once again look to force a move away from St. Mary’s and Spurs will need to be prepared to battle it out with Arsenal, who are also interested in the services of the French star.

Wilfried Bony

Name: Wilfried Bony
Age: 25
Position: Striker
Nationality: Ivory Coast
Club: Swansea
Price: £15 – £20 million

The fact that Tottenham Hotspur is in need of another striker puts Wilfried Bony’s name on the list as he was one of the players opting for a move to join a bigger club.

With Spurs having access to Europa League football, Bony may still be in the crosshairs of Mauricio Pochettino, who is seeing goals come from his defenders and midfielders rather than the usual forward players.

Bernard

Name: Bernard
Age: 22
Position: Left Wing
Nationality: Brazil
Club: Shakhtar Donetsk
Price: £18 – £23 million

The recent political crisis in Ukraine has seen Bernard tipped to leave his club, but due to Tottenham not offering an acceptable sum to Shakhtar, a move didn’t happen.

His club announced that despite the problems in the country, they would only let their star winger leave for a reasonable price. Spurs will once again have to battle it out with Arsenal if they are to secure a big money move for the talented winger.
