After Spurs unbeaten run and turnaround under Andre Villas-Boas, the press is making predictable claims of significant funds being made available for January transfers. Harry Redknapp’s reign as Spurs boss was punctuated by more frugal purchases but with Tottenham trying to make a tangible long term challenge on the top four, is Levy really planning to ‘splash the cash?’
Various names are being mentioned – all of which we’ve heard before – and they include Shakhtar’s Willian, Porto’s Joao Moutinho as well as Danish international and Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen.
Having made several purchases in the summer however, will the club wait until the end of the season before reinforcing the side to any great degree? Only time will tell but there may just be an element of lazy journalism in the reports?
