Southampton have been linked with the England ace. 10 10 OUT: Emmanuel Adebayor – click the arrow to see the goal scoring ace Spurs want – The striker is believed to be paid around £175,000 a week and as he has scored just two Premier League goals, Adebayor has been tipped to leave and make way for someone else. His previous club Monaco have expressed an interest in taking him back to France, with Qatari sides El Jaish Sports Club and Lekhwiya Sports Club rumoured to be prepared to top up his pension. OUT: Kyle Naughton – click the arrow to see which rapid right-back is set to come in – Now Kyle Walker has returned, there does not appear to be much first team action for Naughton, who is not short of admirers. Crystal Palace, Leicester and Swansea have all been linked with the 26-year-old. IN: Espanyol’s Hector Moreno – now click the arrow to see a player most Spurs fans will no doubt be glad to see the back of… – Mexico defender Moreno is known to Pochettino having played under him at Espanyol. However, he has played just once this season, the result of the player breaking his leg during the World Cup. Napoli defender Raul Albiol has also been mentioned as a possible candidate to join in January. IN: Seydou Doumbia: CSKA – now click the arrow to see which recently returned player could find his time at White Hart Lane is up – Doumbia is just one of a number of strikers rumoured to be on the Tottenham shortlist along with Jackson Martinez and Jay Rodriguez. CSKA are out of the Champions League and failed to reach the last 32 of the Europa League and the Russian side are thought to be willing to listen to offers. He scored three goals in his six European outings this season including a double against Man City and apparently has a £25m buy out clause, although his contract is up at the end of next season. Tottenham have been touted as the club to lead the way in terms of spending when the January transfer window opens.Spurs are in the frame to win the League Cup – they play Sheffield United in the semi-final – and are in the last 32 of the Europa League.They are four points from fourth spot, which is currently occupied by London rivals West Ham and a few additions to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad could be a huge boost.Here, talkSPORT looks at who could leave White Hart Lane and who could arrive, be it in January or next summer. IN: DeAndre Yedlin – Not only is Walker back, but DeAndre Yedlin is arriving from America in January having played his last game for MLS side Seattle Sounders. It means Pochettino will not have to continually field makeshift full-backs in Vlad Chiriches and Eric Dier. 10 OUT: Mousa Dembele – click the arrow to see the England international available to take his place – Tottenham are currently four points from a place in the Premier League top four, while they remain in the hunt for the League Cup and the Europa League, the winner of which enters the Champions League. With an injection of added quality, Spurs’ season could still be a success and the January transfer window is the perfect chance to plug a few holes and bid farewell to those who aren’t cutting it. Mousa Dembele appears to have fallen from favour and rumours of a move to Aston Villa and Stoke – manager Mark Hughes signed him for Fulham – have surfaced. 10 IN: PSG’s promising Adrien Rabiot – now click the arrow to see which defender could be shipped out – Rabiot recently signed a new deal keeping him in Paris until 2019, but is still struggling to break into the first team and could leave on loan for the remainder of the season. The 19-year-old PSG academy graduate describes himself as an engine, who enjoys being at the heart of play in midfield and may be a decent alternative for Pochettino should he fail to land Morgan Schneiderlin. 10 10 10 OUT: Vlad Chiriches – click the arrow to see the defender to shore up the back line – Chiriches has not enjoyed himself at the back since arriving from Steaua Bucharest in 2013 and recent reports have seen him linked with loan moves to Italy. Tottenham’s defence has been suspect at times this season, with Younes Kaboul, Jan Vertonghen – whose future is uncertain – and Federico Fazio other stoppers who have been criticised for their displays. last_img read more
