While the current Premier League season might be coming to its end, transfer silly season is only just beginning and as is par for the course, Tottenham Hotspur seem to have found themselves at the centre of it once again.
But far from simply focusing on one rather spectacular, Welsh looking transfer departure, there are in fact a torrent of potential incoming deals that prove far more interesting for supporters. And equally, potentially damaging, too.
