Smart Transfer Moves: Tottenham Hotspur

Updated on June 15, 2013

After a disappointing end to an otherwise fantastic season, Tottenham are already looking toward next season. Tottenham need upgrades in order to make it to the UCL, but don't have the cash to sign a star. Here are some reasonably priced players that Tottenham should buy, along with some current players that they should sell.


BUY: Hiroshi Kiyotake (FC Nurnberg)

Market Value/Estimated Cost: 4M/5-6M

Other Interested Teams: Southampton

Overview: The Japanese attacking midfielder had been largely overlooked after his first Bundesliga campaign, despite finishing the season with the 4th most assists in the league (10), more than the likes of Marco Reus, Toni Kroos or Rafael van der Vaart. Kiyotake has 18 caps for the Japanese National Team, and played for Japan in the 2012 Summer Olympics. Kiyotake would be a great addition to an already good Tottenham midfield.


BUY: Stefan Kießling (Bayer 04 Leverkusen)

Market Value/Estimated Cost:10M/11-15M

Other Interested Teams: Chelsea

Overview: After beating Robert Lewandowski to the Bundesliga Golden Boot, Kie├čling has expressed his desire to move to the EPL, and Tottenham seem to be the perfect fit. He would be a much needed improvement in Tottenham's lagging front line and has proven himself at the highest level of soccer. Plus, he won't break the bank.


BUY: Tom Ince (Blackpool)

Market Value/Estimated Cost: 7.5M/15M

Other Interested Teams: Liverpool, Crystal Palace, Swansea

Overview: With Blackpool still in the Championship, it looks like Ince is set to leave the club for greener pastures. Tottenham would be an ideal one. Ince, who scored 18 goals for Blackpool last season, would get a good amount if playing time at a top club if he moved to Tottenham, something that Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Swansea can't offer. The signing would also bring youth and excitement to a rather old and bland Tottenham front line.

BUY: Other Smart Choices

Roberto Soldado - Valencia

Angelo Ogbonna - Torino

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - St. Etienne


SELL: Kyle Naughton

Market Value: 5M

Interested Teams: Reading

Overview: Kyle Naughton simply isn't good enough to stay at Tottenham. He started only 24 matches last year, and acting as a sub in only two, and hasn't been anything more than average at best. While it isn't a pressing concern, Tottenham should sell Naughton before his transfer value falls.


SELL: Bongani Khumalo

Market Value: 1M

Interested Teams: PAOK

Who??? Khumalo signed for Tottenham in 2011 from SuperSport United and has played in a whopping 0 competitive games for Tottenham since. Khumalo has been on loan at Preston North End, Reading and PAOK since, but at 26, it's time to sell the South African international. There hasn't been much interest in Khumalo, leaving the question of why he wasn't released out there.

What Postion Does Tottenham Need To Improve In The Most?
