Andre Villas-Boas could be in need of reinforcements this winter, as Tottenham have suffered three consecutive Premier League defeats.
Spurs are currently in eight place, and leading Fulham and Swansea by just one point. Villas-Boas is expecting the return of injured stars Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Scott Parker and Mousa Dembele to help the club rebound after 12 games.
Tottenham have scored 20 goals this season, but could probably benefit from an additional attacking midfielder or forward. With the January transfer window looming, Villas-Boas appears to have some options to bolster the attack.
Spurs are linked to some notable names, including winger Wilfried Zaha, according to The People. The 20-year-old has been an impressive performer for Crystal Palace, but he might be over-valued. Zaha has a price tag of between £9 million and £20 million, which might be steep for a player lacking in top-flight experience. Manchester United, Arsenal, and Real Madrid have also been linked to Zaha in recent weeks.
Blackpool attacking midfielder Tom Ince is also a Tottenham target, The Sun reports. Ince, the son of former Manchester United star Paul Ince, began his career with Liverpool, and the Reds are reportedly interested in bringing him back to Anfield. Tottenham are also in competition with Newcastle and Manchester United for the 20-year-old's services.
According to The Independent, Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is also on Spurs' wish list. The 29-year-old could be available from Schalke for a bargain £7 million.
Huntelaar joined the German club in August 2010 from AC Milan, but his contract is set to expire next summer and he appears to be interested in moving to the Premier League. The Sun listed Arsenal, Liverpool, and Chelsea as clubs who have shown interest in Huntelaar. Tottenham were reportedly interested in the star scorer in the summer.
Arsenal forward Nicklas Bendtner, who is currently on loan with Juventus, is a possible summer addition. The 24-year-old was linked by Sky Sports to a permanent move to White Hart Lane this week. Bendtner played well for Denmark in Euro 2012, and scored eight goals in 28 appearances for Sunderland on loan in 2011-2012, but has just five appearances without a goal for Juventus.
