New signings for the big one

Anything is possible for Harry Redknapp and his Spurs side in the race for glory this season.

So says the man himself.

However, Redknapp has also openly admitted that two or three new additions this month could provide the added impetus his team may need to challenge all the way to May.

January is yet to really explode into life in terms of big Premier League transfers – even Gary Cahill has still not managed to seal an exit from Bolton.

The flow of names linked with Spurs has, as ever though, been constant.

All Tottenham fans will have their own opinions as to who could prove a key asset and where the key areas to strengthen are.

Does Redknapp need more experienced cover in defence? Should he go for a quick attacking midfield talent to supplement Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon? Would a more potent finisher be the top target – is it simply vital to add a centre-forward capable of playing the lone role to cover Emmanuel Adebayor?

Who should chairman Daniel Levy push the boat out to land in a bid to ensure this fabulous season ends in glory?

Here’s a few of the more realistic names touted to be interesting Spurs in January so far.

Defenders
Chris Samba – Experienced centre-back but Blackburn are fighting hard to keep him.
Gary Cahill – Is he or isn’t he going to Chelsea?
James Tomkins – West Ham’s rock.

Midfielders
Rasmus Elm – Cultured Swede.
Wilfried Zaha – Certainly a talent for the future and impressive in the League Cup.
Jack Rodwell – Another big talent for the future but what about now?
Moussa Dembele – Fulham’s powerful Belgian midfield star.
Filip Kostic – Teenage Serbian winger.
Junior Hoilett – Speedy winger/forward who seems sure to leave Rovers.
Ganso – Harry may not know him but how involved was he in the Sandro deal?
Milos Krasic – Juventus winger has also been linked with Chelsea.

Forwards
Demba Ba – How much it would it take to release him from the Toon?
Mario Mandzukic – Croatian striker who plays for Wolfsburg.
Moussa Sow – Lille goal machine.
Leandro – One of Brazil’s next big things but likely to command a big fee.
Loic Remy – Another talented but expensive option.
Amauri – All has gone a bit quiet with the player is expected to stay in Italy.

Alternatively you may feel none of the above would add anything to this current all-conquering Tottenham outfit, or perhaps someone different takes your fancy?
