Three players Tottenham could target on deadline day

Three players Tottenham Hotspur could sign on transfer deadline day on Tuesday

By Ned Bristow

1) Saido Berahino

Long-linked with Spurs, the 22-year-old has attempted to force a move through over the past few weeks to no avail. Current employers West Brom are one of the potential suitors for QPR striker Charlie Austin, so the Baggies could look to make a cool profit by finally allowing Berahino to move to north London and bringing Austin to the Midlands. With Harry Kane failing to find the net so far this season, Mauricio Pochettino has already brought in Son Heung-min from Bayer Leverkusen but will be eager to bring in at least one more reinforcement to relieve pressure on key man Kane. With 20 goals last season, Saido Berahino has proven his eye for goal and would be a good addition at White Hart Line

2) Victor Wanyama

Another player keen to link up with Mauricio Pochettino is his former charge Victor Wanyama of Southampton. The holding midfielder has a spot waiting for him at the heart of Tottenham’s midfield, and, like Berahino, has had a transfer request rejected by his club. This is a norm of modern football, however, and rather than exclusively rule out a move it serves to up the asking price. That, along with the Kenyan’s Premier League experience and the nature of deadline day, could mean Spurs coming in with an offer north of £20m to get their man. With defender Eric Dier filling in in the defensive midfield role so far this season, Wanyama would add to the limited options of Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb in the position. The Saints man has become a key figure on the south coast, however, and his club’s soured relationship with Spurs could still scupper a seemingly inevitable move.

3) Yannick Bolasie

The Crystal Palace man changed the game after his introduction against Chelsea on the weekend, showing his potential to improve on Pochettino’s current options. Alan Pardew has encouraged Bolasie to move in order to further his career, but simultaneously slapped a mammoth £40m+ price tag on the winger. Spurs lacked a cutting edge against Everton on the weekend with Christian Eriksen missing with a knee injury and Harry Kane off form, and the White Hart Lane boss will be scratching his head as he surely seeks attacking reinforcements before tomorrow’s deadline. The Palace hierarchy have refused to rule out a move for the DR Congo international, but the former Bristol City man appears settled at Selhurst Park and has demonstrated devastating form alongside Wilfried Zaha, Jason Puncheon and others.
