Tottenham looking to splash the cash on midfielder after missing out on top four

Tottenham were heartbroken when Arsenal pipped them to fourth place, and with the squad they have they should probably be angry that they didn’t manage it. Andre Villas-Boas is responding how topflight managers know best and are preparing a spending spree, which the Sun are reporting is going to start with Joao Moutinho. *sigh* not him again.

This is like the boy who cried wolf. How many times has he been linked with a move to White Hart Lane now?

The 26-year-old is also the interest of Ligue 1 money bags Monaco and the pair will have to battle it out in what could be a £30m move. Surely with the likes of Mousa Dembele, Clint Dempsey, Lewis Holtby and Gareth Bale* patrolling the central positions replacing Emmanuel Adebayor should be top priority, who will either leave or continue to stink up the frontline.

*There is a high chance that the Welshman will jump ship as soon as someone wafts some money in front of his nose and promises him Champions League football.

The Porto playmaker has some sort of hold over AVB after their time together at the Portuguese club, and with over 50 appearances for the Portugal senior side under his belt the gaffer sees him as a perfect fit in his midfield.
