Although the transfer window won’t reopen for another few months, it seems clear that Spurs could be quite active in the market when January arrives and that’s why the rumour mill continues to turn.
There have been some interesting players linked with the club in recent days and while the name of Ander Herrera won’t be familiar to many supporters, he seems a good prospect to say the least.
Whether the story has legs or not is another matter considering that the player has only been with his present club Athletic Bilbao since the start of the Spanish season. However, it’s thought that he may already be out of favour at San Marnes and with a knee injury likely to keep Herrera out for a month, Bilbao could be prepared to sell in the New Year.
A 22-year old defensive midfielder at £15m may not be our number one priority however and although the story is gathering momentum today, it’s difficult to see this one coming off.
