While Spurs have starred in the Champions League this term, their form in the English top flight has been inconsistent. It’s why, even though the season is just over the halfway point, Tottenham are no longer competing for the title.
Tottenham are far from alone in that given the pace Manchester City have set, however, Pochettino’s side are now in a battle for fourth and it’s one they must win.
Spurs new home, which they will move into in the summer, will be one of the best in Europe. It should be playing host to the Champions League elite, not the Europa League also-rans.
It’s why a good January window could make all the difference. Tottenham’s squad isn’t the deepest and juggling Premier League football with European commitments have highlighted that.
So quality additions are required, and there will be several available if Daniel Levy loosens the purse-strings.
In the video above we’ve picked out five players Tottenham should target in January. If they’re able to land even one of them, then they’ll be taking a big step in their quest to secure a top four finish.
