Paulinho, Bernard and Soldado heading to Tottenham.

Posted on June 18, 2013 by Eddie S

Though it might not quite be the end of transfer activity into Tottenham during this transfer window all the signs point to the three players mentioned joining, they all fit the bill in that have plenty of years left at the top of their profession, are all full Internationals with two of the great International teams and all come at a price within the realms of Tottenham’s ambition at this stage of their growth.

Soldado is the oldest of the bunch and his price seems to range from £10m to £20m, it was initially thought that he might remain at Valencia and they were certainly the words coming from his lips, that stance now appears to be changing and he is beginning to speak positively of playing in the English league. Valencia certainly have financial problems which have been exacerbated by their failure to win qualification to the Champions League, Soldado is almost certainly their highest paid player and more importantly for Tottenham and any other suitor does not appear to be on the wanted list of either Barcelona or Real Madrid. He is the finished article in that he has been a 20 plus goal a season man for a good few years and has now become the 1st choice for his country.

Paulinho has recently become a fixture in the Brazilian midfield and is also beginning to bring a goal threat to proceedings with a couple of goals in consecutive fixtures, now regularly spoken of as a Tottenham target probably because of the price quoted by Inter for Fredy Guarin, AVB’s preference at a realistic price. Hopefully we are not entering a situation with his club Corinthians similar to that experienced with Internacional for their centre forward over the past couple of years, it seems that there is real interest from Tottenham and that a deal might be reached at the end of the Confederation cup, if not sooner.

The last possible purchase relates to Bernard, a young Brazilian playmaker with impressive goalscoring abilities, his club had previously spoken of an offer from an unnamed English club and now his agent has spoken of Tottenham being the only game in town for his services. Bernard is described in Brazil as a wonderkid and he has already appeared a number of times for the full International team. This is a player that if he continues to improve might become a fantastic addition to the Tottenham team, AVB it seems has the ability to improve the quality of most players as has been seen in the short time he has been with Tottenham.

The possibility of Tottenham lining up with Sandro, Dembele and Paulinho in midfield with Bernard in a more offensive role along with Gareth Bale and Soldado is truly an exciting prospect, with so many other options in Holtby, Sigurdsson, Dempsey, Lennon, Townsend and Carroll amongst others for AVB to choose from.

Exciting times are on their way and I for one cannot wait for this season to start, tomorrow we shall have all the fixtures in and begin picking out all the important games and dates that will shape the season.

    Whoever, we sign, we are still gonna finish behind Arsenal.
    May sound pessimistic, but there you go

      Let us see as there might be a .shock or two in store for a couple of last years top four. Spurs aren’t just aiming to beat Arsenal any longer they have bigger fish to fry even though Arsenal have made their season all about finishing above their neighbours for the last 8 years.
