Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed a number of players he wants to sign in order to break into the top four again next season.
Spurs missed out on consectutive top four finishes after losing to Manchester City earlier this month and believes the club need to back him in the transfer market if they wish to play Champions league football again in the 2012/13 season.
At present, West Ham captain Scott Parker tops the list but, as reported earlier, faces competition from Arsenal and Liverpool for his signature.
Strikers are a further priority for Redknapp with Didier Drogba, Emmanuel Adebayor, Eden Hazard and Pabl Osvaldo further targets for the Spurs boss.
Elsewhere, reports suggest that Redknapp is eyeing up Marten Stekelenburg, Ben Foster and Shay Given as possible replacements for error-prone Heurelho Gomes. Brazilian Gomes, Spurs’ number one since he arrived in 2008, has come under heavy criticism after some high profile gaffes in the Tottenham goal this season.
Reports also suggest the club are looking to bring in Radamel Falcao from Porto with Luka Modric being linked with a move to Manchester United as a replacement for Paul Scholes. However, the player himself has confirmed he is happy at White Hart Lane and isn’t looking to leave the club.
Sebastien Bassong, Jermaine Jenas and Robbie Keane are among the players that look set to leave White Hart Lane this summer as Redknapp looks to streamline the squad and bring in the necessary funding for new players.
