With the transfer window looming, Tottenham will have a battle on their hands if they want to try and get from second place and win the title next season. There’s already been a lot of transfer speculation, but these are the three most realistic signings that they could secure and build on.

The striker has had a great season, managing to score 16 goals, saving the Cherries from relegation.

With the Premier League needing players to be qualified as homegrown, Joshua would pass, even though he plays for Norway.
