Tottenham target Willian, Lamela, Chiriches and Coentrao with Bale money.

With just a couple of weeks remaining of this transfer window we are now reaching a crucial stage, the league has started in both England and Spain and as a result clubs will be anxiously assessing their position in relation to squad strength and numbers.

In Spain Barcelona have started off like a train with a 7-0 win while more interestingly Real Madrid struggled after falling behind to Real Betis and only notching a 2-1 win with a goal in the last few minutes. Even this early it is clear that Madrid might again struggle to overcome Barcelona in their domestic league, Neymar was only introduced into the team in the second half so it would seem there is still far more to come from them. Perez and Zidane will quickly panic and seek to inject more into the team and Bale is the player they want.

If Bale is to leave, which judging by events will happen if Madrid come up with the money demanded by Levy, then Barcelona’s resounding win might just have concentrated their minds and they will be seeking ways to meet the price. Coentrao will almost certainly be a part of the deal as there seems no way back for Benoit Assou-Ekotto it seems, perhaps one of Jese or Morata might now be included as any hope they might have of breaking into the team on a regular basis is unlikely for years to come, if at all.

Tottenham have already bought well and look strong but if Bale does leave they will try to bolster the squad massively with a couple of offensive players, Lamela and Willian seem to be the players likely, one with amazing potential and the other the finished article. One or both would seem to fit the bill and would be affordable once Madrid cough up.

The final addition to the squad will probably still be a specialist central defender and even though the deal for Chiriches has been an on off saga he is still the likely candidate, presumably having been identified as so by Baldini. If not Chiriches it is still likely another central defender will be brought in before the window closes.

It now appears that Assou-Ekotto and Scott Parker will not feature in the 25 man squad for the coming season there is also a question mark over Gomes who might now be retained as another back up keeper with Archer perhaps not yet ready for emergencies. It now seems certain that the eight man British contingent is finalized and will consist of Walker, Naughton, Dawson, Rose, Lennon, Townsend, Defoe and Sigurdsson ,who I believe is eligible because of his academy contract with Reading.

Gareth Bale would be another British squad member if for some reason he did remain but assuming he does go then it would mean room for four more overage players in the Tottenham squad. Whether Tottenham manage to secure the services of every target they set will be extremely difficult but it seems certain that further additions will be made.
