Over the weekend, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp insisted that Spurs will spend big in the summer in a bid to take the club to the next level and hopefully cement a regular place in the Champions League slots at the very least.

“Everything is in place for the club to keep progressing now, we’ve got a new training ground coming, but when it comes down to it, you can have all the facilities in the world, but you have to keep investing in players,” Redknapp said.

“I think Tottenham will do that next year, we will look to improve the team again next year.”

Could one of those players be Independiente centre half Julian Velasquez? At just 21, he is rumoured to be one of the most promising young players in South American football and last year saw him win his first full cap for his country.

A fee of £4m has been mooted and Gazzetta dello Sport suggest that Spurs have already expressed an interest.

Promising though Velasquez may be, he doesn’t seem to be a better option than Bruno Uvini who is on trial at the club. The search for Ledley King’s successor therefore carries on.
