The press seem determined to set Spurs up with a new midfielder in this transfer window even though this is the most crowded area of the squad. For once, everyone seems to be at full fitness and on any given weekend, the first choice midfield could be challenged by a number of names.
Lennon, Bale, Dempsey, Sandro, Dembele, Sigurdsson, Parker, Huddlestone, Carroll – the list goes on so do we really need to add to the squad in this area over the course of this month?
The latest name to be linked with a move to White Hart Lane is Toulouse man and French international Moussa Sissoko who is just heading into the last six months of his contract with the Ligue 1 outfit.
Similarly, Schalke’s Lewis Holtby was linked earlier this week along with another new name – Croatian international Anas Sharbini. Is there any truth to the rumours or are the press looking at anyone entering into the last six months of their contract? Elsewhere, the familiar name of Joao Moutinho has appeared once again.
The first four days of the transfer window have suggested that Spurs will be busier than AVB had intimated but is a midfielder signing on the cards – or even particularly necessary?
