Tottenham’s chances of qualifying for the knockout round of the Champions League increased significantly Tuesday night after an emphatic win against the current European champions, Internazionale Milan. Buoyed by Gareth Bale’s man-of-the-match display, Tottenham Hotspur now sits in the enviable position at the top of their group and has one toe in the next round. Having already played Inter twice, Spurs now has matches against Werder Bremen and FC Twente to complete the group stage.
Knowing Tottenham, nothing is ever guaranteed so Spurs supporters may be nervous in their next match against Bremen on November 24. A win should be enough to seal entry into the next round. But depending on that result, they may need the final match of the group on December 12 against Twente to catapult into the knockout round.
If Tottenham do make it into the knockout round of the UEFA Champions League, the club will be positioned to spend big in the January transfer window when they compete in the round of 16 in February and March. Tottenham already has an incredible amount of talent, but the club could benefit from one or two additional signings that would make the difference between a round of 16 team and one that could make it into the quarter-finals where they would be positioned against some of the best teams in the world.
But if you were Harry Redknapp, what positions do Tottenham need adequate cover for in the January transfer window? And in these positions, who would you consider buying? Share your opinions in the comments section below.
