The one transfer rumour that everyone seems to be talking about at the moment is Leighton Baines to Spurs and while it looks a massively tempting proposition for Tottenham fans, would it really happen?
The club has been linked with Everton players in the past couple of years but after Phil Neville and Leon Osman, Baines is a far more interesting link. At 28, we know of his quality and of a threat in front of goal that has brought him a respectable ratio for a defender of one strike in eleven while at Goodison.
It was rumoured in the Sunday Mirror that Andre Villas-Boas had turned his attention to Baines after being quoted £30m for Fabio Coentrao. At £15m, Baines is obviously much better value and far less of a gamble.
The temptation for a loyal player could be the chance of Champions League football and that, of course, won’t be decided until the end of the season. But is Baines at Spurs an attractive prospect for you?
