After enjoying a brilliant season in 2016/17, many expected Tottenham to dip into the transfer market in order to further improve their squad.

Last season's runners up appeared to be just a few new additions away from a potential Premier League title but so far, the north London club have been the quietest top-flight side in the window.

In fact, Mauricio Pochettino's side have made no new signings as of yet and actually lost Kyle Walker to Manchester City - they did get £50m for him, though.

Spurs fans are desperate for new blood, despite members of the squad stating that they feel the squad is already strong enough to mount a title challenge next season.

Nevertheless, the north London side have been linked with several targets across Europe with Pochettino clearly focused on tinkering his squad to some degree.

Midfield is a department that appears to require some strengthening and it seems the club have identified the man to do just that; Benfica's Ljubomir Fejsa. 

According to The Sun, Spurs wish to make the Serbian international their first major acquisition of the summer, with the 28-year-old's contract set to expire next summer.

He is a key member of Benfica's squad and helped guide the Portuguese giants to a domestic double last season.


In fact, Fejsa seems to attract success wherever he goes in Europe, winning 10 Championship medals in the last nine seasons with Partizan Belgrade, Olympiacos and, of course, Benfica.

A tough-tackling midfield enforcer, the Serb would provide excellent cover for Victor Wanyama and his experience in the Champions League could prove vital for the coming season.

Eric Dier may be used more a central defender for the coming campaign in Pochettino's favoured three-man defence, so extra cover in midfield is of paramount importance.


Spurs fans will be praying the man they're after can do the job well and bring his knack for winning to the club in order to end their 57-year title drought.
