Current options - Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Jan Vertonghen

Possible signings - Alberto de la Bella, Luke Shaw

This could quite easily be striker. But assuming Spurs keep Gareth Bale (admittedly a massive assumption), they have options with a fully-fit Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor. He can't be any worse than last season, right?

At left-back the situation is more desperate. Assou-Ekotto is prone to mistakes, while Jan Vertonghen is wasted at the position - he's arguably Tottenham's best centre-back.

Luke Shaw is the long-term option but he would be expensive. Andre Villas-Boas reportedly had a £3m bid rejected for Real Sociedad defender Alberto de la Bella this week, and he clearly views the position as an area to strengthen.
