Tottenham Hotspur have made a few very shrewd purchases this summer, but the gaping hole at the head of the pack still remains as they are extremely under-strength in the striker's department. Jermain Defoe is the only recognizable face in the current line-up, with 19 year old Harry Kane the only other option. Spurs have put all their apples in one basket called Emmanuel Adebayor but a deal for the Man City striker looks less likely to occur with every passing day.
But manager Andre Villas-Boas isn't too perturbed as he told this to The Sun when asked about the situation: â€œThree is enough,â€ thus implying that he was on the lookout for just one more signing.Spurs have spent most of the summer haggling with Man City over Adebayor and all that might go to waste as the player's wage demands seems to have killed the deal. The Togo International would be the ideal fit for the club as he settled in beautifully while on loan last season. But the options on hand for Spurs should the move actually collapse are very low as their chances of landing other targets, Damiao and Loic Remy are equally low.
Spurs are in a similar situation with regards to their central midfield position as the Luka Modric deal has dragged on through the summer and they are yet to land a replacement. The additions of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Jan Vertonghen might be moves in the right direction, but a failure to address the voids in attack and midfield soon could leave them trailing when the season begins.
