After a poor start to the season, which included a 7-2 smashing to Bayern Munich and defeats to Newcastle, Leicester and Brighton, Mauricio Pochettino was replaced by Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur in November. 

Since then, Spurs have won four of their six matches in all competitions, scoring bundles of goals but continuing to look fragile in defence.   

So with the club still being involved in the Champions League, FA Cup and needing to fight to secure a top-four finish, it will be interesting to see if the North London club dip into the transfer market in January.

There have already been a number of players linked with a switch to Spurs in the new year but who are they?

Here are five players are reportedly on Tottenham’s radar…

Paulo Dybala

Argentina international Paulo Dybala was – as reported by Sky Sports – a target of Tottenham in the summer until the deal collapsed.

Now the Evening Standard whipped fans into a frenzy by reporting that the 26-year-old recently visited London.

Dybala would certainly add real quality to Spurs’ forward line and is able to play in several positions including filling in for striker Harry Kane as the main forward.

This would allow Mourinho to rest Kane and still have a fantastic forward line. This is something that Poch could never really do in his five-year spell at the helm.
