For a club that won’t be in the Champions League next season, which may struggle to keep its best players and currently is unsure over who will be the manager when the 2012/2013 season kicks off in August, Tottenham have been linked with an impressive calibre of player. Some of Europe’s best young talent is rumoured to be coming to White Hart Lane this summer, which after the end to the season Spurs had would give the club a massive lift.

Unlikely Tottenham Transfers
Robert Green – No! No! No!
Said with my Spurs supporting hat on.
Youssuf Mulumbu – This rumour’s puzzling. Spurs have Sandro, Livermore, Huddlestone, Parker and Modric if he stays. There’s more than enough of defensive midfielders at the club already.
James Tomkins – I’m inclined to doubt this rumour as well. If Vertonghen signs there would already be three young centre backs in or around the first team with Williams Gallas, Ryan Nelsen, Michael Dawson and maybe even Ledley King also at the club (Sebastien Bassong is almost certainly leaving). Another centre back would not be necessary.
Gonzalo Higuain – WTF? Yes on Twitter I saw that ‘Spurs representatives’ had got in contact with him and been rebuffed. Well you can’t fault Spurs for ambition. But it is ambitious in the sense of an unemployed overweight female from Aberdeen asking for Johnny Depp’s hand in marriage.
Grant Holt – Now you’re just taking the piss.
