Chelsea striker Didier Drogba tops Harry Redknapp’s list of players he feels will improve Tottenham’s bid for Champions League football next season.

The Ivorian ticks all the boxes for the ideal forward that Redknapp craves in order to accomodate Rafael Van der Vaart in a 4-4-1-1 formation. With 144 goals in 301 Chelsea appearances, the signing of Drogba, who has twelve months left to play on his Chelsea contrac, will prove a major coup for the Spurs manager should a deal be made.

The two major stumbling blocks, however, would be whether Spurs are willing to match Drogba’s current £130k per week he currently earns with Chelsea. The second would be Chelsea would want to sell to a rival that they feel are improving with every season. However, with Drogba now 33, the Blues may be willing to cash in on the Ivory Coast international rather than let him leave on a free next year.

As reported yesterday, Eden Hazard remains a top target on Redknapp’s radar and the Spurs manager is reportedly travelling to France again tonight to watch the Belgian in action for Lille against Sochaux. 

Further members of the list include former England captain David Beckham, who spent a short spell at Tottenham earlier in the year, and Scott Parker of recently relegated West Ham United. Any bid for the £10m rated player is likely to be rivalled by North London rivals Arsenal

One player who may be heading out of White Hart Lane is striker Jermain Defoe who admitted today that he is finding life hard on the sidelines and, after only starting 15 Premier League games this season, may be looking to secure a move away from White Hart Lane.

Furthermore, Van der Vaart has committed his future to Tottenham after speculation linked him away from N17 after the club missed out on Champions League football. He joins the likes of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, who have both been linked with big money moves, in issuing a statement of intent to remain with Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham to try January move for 25-year-old star they missed out in the summer

Tottenham to retry landing Bruno Fernandes once the winter window opens

Bruno Fernandes was excellent for Sporting Lisbon last season as he scored goals for fun.

The Portuguese international was heavily linked with a move to Tottenham (h/t Sun) but couldn’t move out of Sporting. That doesn’t seem to have affected him as he already has six goals and five assists for Sporting this season.

However, A Bola (h/t Sun) claims that Tottenham will try to sign Fernandes once the winter window opens.

Tottenham have struggled this season and could lose Christian Eriksen at the end of the season. The Dane is in the final year of his contract and hasn’t been at his best either.

Fernandes is seen as the ideal replacement for Eriksen (h/t Sun), and it could be an interesting January window for the 25-year-old.

Tottenham need goals in the team

Although Spurs have several attacking players, things just aren’t working for us this season. Harry Kane leads us with five goals but needs more support from his teammates.

Fernandes is a goal-scoring midfielder and would provide us with a lot going forward. The 25-year-old is capable of playing out wide too, and it will be interesting to see if we make a serious offer for him.

Tottenham spent big in the summer on Tanguy Ndombele, and Giovani Lo Celso’s move could be made permanent next season.

Spurs still need to spend in the winter window to salvage the season, and Fernandes could be our ticket into the top four.

Newcastle enter the race for Tottenham-linked Ugurcan Cakir

Newcastle United are interested in Trabzonspor keeper Ugurcan Cakir, according to Turkish outlet 61 Saat (h/t Sun).

The Turkish international has been one of the most impressive keepers in the league and has been linked to Tottenham as well. Cakir could cost around £17million and has also been linked with Arsenal and Liverpool (h/t Sun).

Tottenham have had a bit of a goalkeeping crisis at the moment with Hugo Lloris’ injury. The captain dislocated his elbow against Brighton and is out till 2020. Paulo Gazzaniga should replace him in the first-team and impressed last season when he got a run of games.

Do Spurs need a new No.1?

Lloris is still one of the best in the league but age is catching up with the captain. The 32-year-old has a tendency to make mistakes, but his experience is a bonus for this Tottenham side.

It will be interesting to see how well Lloris recovers from the problem, and should the Frenchman not come back 100%, we could be in the market for another top quality keeper.

Gazzaniga can stake a claim for the No.1 spot over the coming months. Hopefully, he performs well in the absence of Lloris, and we don’t have to spend big in the summer for a new keeper.

Serie A giants could throw 24-year-old Frenchman to land key Tottenham star in January

Juventus could throw Adrien Rabiot into Christian Eriksen deal

Juventus star Adrien Rabiot hasn’t lit up Italy after joining on a free transfer in the summer. The 24-year-old was one of the most coveted players in the summer and decided to swap PSG for Juve.

However, there is a lot of competition for places in Turin, and Le10 Sport (h/t Calciomercato) claims that his time with Juve could be coming to an end.

The Serie A giants want to sign Christian Eriksen and can land him on a free transfer in the summer. The Dane hasn’t signed a new deal with Tottenham and is free to discuss terms with foreign clubs in January.

However, Juve want the Dane in January and could offer Rabiot in the deal for the Dane (h/t Calciomercato).

A great option for Tottenham

With the Dane seemingly set for an exit, getting a replacement in January would be a great deal for Tottenham.

Rabiot was one of the most impressive players at PSG before being frozen out of the team. The 24-year-old could do a great job in our midfield, and working under Mauricio Pochettino could help his development.

Losing Eriksen for free at the end of the season would be a terrible outcome from this situation, but getting Rabiot in January would soften the blow.

The French midfielder would get half a season to get to grips with our style, and Pochettino has made January signings in the past.

Lucas Moura is one example of Pochettino’s moves in the winter window, and the Brazilian has been a success since his move from PSG.

Tottenham attacker on four-man list to replace ageing Barcelona forward

Barcelona target Harry Kane as Luis Suarez replacement

Barcelona are planning for life without Luis Suarez and are in the hunt for his successor.

Mundo Deportivo (h/t Mirror) claims that the Catalans have shortlisted four strikers who they see as a long-term successor to the Uruguayan.

Suarez has been excellent since joining from Liverpool, however, age is catching up to him. The forward has looked a little out of sorts in recent months and will turn 33 next year.

Harry Kane is one of the players on the four-man list, according to the report, with Marcus Rashford also in the midst.

Kane has been linked with an exit from Tottenham due to a lack of silverware (h/t Mirror). The start of our season hasn’t gone well either and it will take a bit of a miracle for us to land a trophy.

The FA Cup is still on for us, but our performances have been well below par this season.

Kane trying his best for the team

The Englishman has scored five goals for us this season but just isn’t getting enough service from the others.

The 26-year-old is possibly the best striker in the world and would fit into any top side. Barcelona need to think about the future with Lionel Messi also in the same ageing boat as Suarez.

Harry Kane

Kane recently signed a new deal with Spurs and losing him would be a huge blow to the team.

We have built a team around the Englishman and losing the jewel in the crown would hurt us a lot in the long run.

Tottenham could ask for a huge sum for the 26-year-old, and it will help in the rebuilding of the side.

However, we have seen this happen before with Gareth Bale’s transfer and that didn’t work out too well for us.
