Tottenham have decided to be active before the transfer deadline by making three high-profile moves.
Spurs have made a bold move by adding Hugo Lloris. The France national team goalkeeper will move from Lyon in a £10 million move, according to BBC reporter Dave Ornstein.
The addition of Lloris opens up a debate about who should be the No.1 goalkeeper, as 41-year-old American Brad Friedel has been one of the more reliable net minders in the Premier League in recent years.
Andre Villas-Boas has also added Joao Moutinho for £22 million fee, according to Goal.com. However, BBC reported that the deal is not done just yet. The Porto star would represent perhaps the most ambitious move in recent years for Spurs.
Moutinho has 48 appearances with Portugal, and the 25-year-old has been a fixture with two of the "Big Three" clubs in the Portuguese league, as the versatile midfielder also had 163 appearances with Sporting.
Meanwhile, Rafael van der Vaart has returned to Hamburg for a fee of £10.3 million. The Dutch attacking midfielder has signed a three-year deal at €3.9 million per year.
Villas-Boas had reportedly been holding out for £14 million, and had previously stated that Hamburg was disrespecting Van der Vaart and Tottenham with an £8 million offer.
