Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has come under heavy fire for Spurs' slow start this season but club chairman Daniel Levy remains firmly behind his manager and is willing to hand the Portuguese boss a Â£20 million war chest for the January transfer window.
Spurs have lost 4 out of their last 5 league games and they currently sit at 8th place in the Premier League table, six points behind fourth placed West Brom. They have also made an early exit from the Capital One Cup after a 2-1 defeat to Norwich. The Spurs manager is keen on ending the slew of bad results and he is reportedly looking for a new left-back, central midfielder and striker to add to his squad over the winter, reported the Daily Star.
Following the summer departure of Luka Modric, AVB had attempted to bring in Porto playmaker Joao Moutinho but the transfer fell through at the last minute. PSG are also in pursuit of Moutinho and AVB has prudently lined up alternatives, CSKA Moscow's Alan Dzagoev and Roma's Miralem Pjanic,Â to his list of winter targets.
Meanwhile, AVB will also want to lighten the books at White Hart Lane, with Michael Dawson touted to make an exit over the winter after he declined a deadline day move to QPR. Heurelho Gomes, Jermaine Jenas and David Bentley are also not a part of AVB's plans at the club and he could sell them to generate more funds to go ahead with his transfer plans.
Levy aims to see Tottenham in the Champions League next season and AVB will hope that his winter dealings can help the club achieve that dream with a successful run through the rest of the season.
