Reports are that the Spurs bid £15 million for star striker Saido Berahino but that West Brom value Berahino at closer to £25 million. This, amidst reports that West Brom are trying to tie Berahino to a long-term contract and recent comments from West Brom skipper Darren Fletcher than he’s certain that the England U21 International will stay with the club unless a much higher offer comes in.

With the Spurs’ Daniel Levy and West Brom’s Jeremy Peace both known for being tough negotiators, this could be a saga that could go until the end of the transfer window.

How much do you think Berahino is worth? Will the Spurs increase their bid? Is there a chance that Berahino will come to the Spurs?

Spurs could be looking to offload a couple of midfielders in January and could make a swoop to bolster their midfield with Newcastle United star Cheick Tiote.

The Ivory Coast international has been a rock in the midfield for Newcastle over the past few seasons but is hardly the big signing to wet Spurs fans appetites.

Tiote would however add a bit of much needed fight in the Spurs midfield, a hard tackling player that seems to be missing since the sale of Sandro to QPR in the summer.

Spurs could have to fork out around £10m to land the 28 year old.

Spurs are still hurt by missing out on Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck after the Manchester United man opted for a summer move to The Emirates.

Spurs will again turn their attention to Christian Benteke of Aston Villa in January and Soldado will be sent packing back to Spain. Benteke was wanted by Spurs last summer but signed a new deal at Villa Park and after a few injuries has never regained his form.

Spurs are hoping that with Benteke’s dip in form that they could get the Aston Villa man for under £20m.

Unless Spurs pick up in form it will be hard to convince Benteke that joining Spurs would be much of a step up.

Spurs tried to land the Egyptian last summer after impressing when Basel played Spurs in the Europa League but Chelsea pounced first after an impressive display in the CL against them.

Salah was signed by Mourinho but has never really broke into the squad. Daniel Levy will be hoping to get his man for less than £12m.

Should Chelsea look to January as an opportunity to strengthen their squad they would listen to offers for Salah.

Spurs will also turn their attention to West Brom striker Berahino. Pochettino has been keeping tabs on the West Brom and England u21 star and wants to make a move for the striker before he attracts more interest from other clubs.

Berahino is emerging as a hot talent and Spurs would need to bid in excess of  £20m if the striker keeps scoring this side of Christmas.

Manchester United  & Chelsea are both ready to test Spurs resolve with a January bid for Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen.

Vertonghen has previously told Spurs he has no plans to sign a new deal which has brought into question his commitment to the club.

Louis Van Gaal wants to improve Manchester United’s defensive crisis and Chelsea look to add reinforcements as they always do especially with John Terry not getting any younger.

Pochettino left Jan on the bench against Manchester City, a sign that the Spurs manager isn’t impressed with Vertonghen at the moment.

It is thought a bid of around £15m could be enough to see Spurs sell although Daniel Levy would prefer to sell abroad and he might get his wish as Barcelona are also keen on the Spurs man.

His penalty taking was the best thing about him since he joined Tottenham but on Saturday even his penalty taking let down Roberto Soldado.

Spurs are willing to cut their losses with Soldado in January and could take a massive hit on the £26m they paid for the striker just last summer and are rumoured to be willing to accept just £10m.

Pochettino wants to swoop for Swansea striker Wilfried Bony and Daniel Levy would be willing to splash around £20m on the Ivory Coast international. Bony impressed last season, his first full season in the Premier League and is the strike threat up front that Spurs need. A target man who can hold the ball up and score goals. Spurs have waited too long for a striker capable of scoring 20+ goals in the Premier League.

Many would argue Spurs haven’t had a top class striker since Berbatov. So many promising big names like Adebayor and Soldado haven’t really made the impact that the fans were hoping for.

Should Spurs fail to obtain a top 4 place this season they could offer Chelsea stopper Petr Cech a deal in the summer.

Hugo Lloris despite signing a new deal would be tough to hang onto in the summer should there be no Champions League football on the cards yet again.

Petr Cech is now second choice for the first time in 10 years at Chelsea following the impressive Thibaut Courtois emerging as the new number one after an impressive loan spell at La Liga side Atletico Madrid which saw him win the league and reach the Champions League final.

Due to Courtois being almost 10 years junior to Petr Cech is seems as though Chelsea see it as a much better idea to hold onto the younger keeper and allow Cech to move on.

Cech will not be short of offers in the transfer windows but Spurs will be one of the clubs bidding for his signature despite having Vorm ready to fill the boots of Hugo Lloris.

After being linked in the past, probably for about the last 6 or 7 years, Spurs could finally be about to the take plunge and go all out in Januar to sign Jan Klaas Huntelaar.

Many Spurs fans thought it was time to snap up the Dutch international a few seasons ago but Schalke nipped in to grab a bargain much to the dismay of Spurs fans as they watched another potentially good and very much-needed signing move to a club who they could have competed with for his signature.

Huntelaar featured at the World Cup in the summer and has always scored goals wherever he’s been and would surely add goals the Spurs side. A move for Huntelaar would spell the end of Roberto Soldado’s time at The Lane.

Yes Please!
