With transfer deadline day looming large upon us, and the Gareth Bale saga looking to come to an end, Spurs are expected to recruit further signings and take their spending tally beyond £100m.

Argentine winger, Erik Lamela, is reported to be in London with his representatives, edging closer to his £30m switch to Spurs.

The deal looks set to be completed within 48 hours, and so is likely to not be a signing on deadline day. However, Spurs are looking for further depth in their team to help them surge on towards becoming realistic title contenders.

Here are the potential deadline day moves that Spurs could be involved in...

Christian Eriksen, Ajax

With the Danish international only having one year left on his deal with Dutch club Ajax, numerous clubs have portrayed an interest in the 21 year old, including Liverpool, AC Milan, Zenit, and Bayer Leverkusen.

Sources suggest Spurs are now leading the race for the Dane after reportedly lodging a £7m bid. Reports claim that Ajax are holding out for £12m, in which could be met by Spurs in a potential second bid on transfer deadline day. 

Hulk, Zenit st Petersburg

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has been a long time admirer of the Brazilian after working with the forward in a successful spell at Porto.

Hulk is willing to step out of Champions League football with the Russian club, in favour of being reunited with his former manager, Villas-Boas. Spurs have reportedly tabled a £30m bid, but Zenit have openly stated that the Brazilian ace is not for sale.

Perhaps a bid of closer to £40m will convince Zenit to offload Hulk. All can become possible after the imminent departure of Welsh wizard Gareth Bale. 

Juan Mata, Chelsea

Though this deal looks unlikely, Chelsea have recently bolstered their attack once again with the arrival of original Spurs target Willian in addition to the Blues being in advanced talks with Porto winger Christian Atsu.

The Spaniard hasn't played a full 90 minutes for Chelsea this season, following a 65 minute appearance against Aston Villa, and he was an unused substitute in the game against Manchester United. Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid have been linked. With Spurs needing that crucial "number 10", Juan Mata could be the man to take Spurs to another level. 

Fabio Coentrao, Real Madrid 

Fabio Coentrao reportedly wants to leave Real Madrid after being deprived of a first team spot by Brazilian left back Marcelo.

Tottenham have been reported to have been in the market for a left back, despite the recent promising performances of Danny Rose.

Coentrao has been rumoured to have been a part of the Gareth Bale fee, but other sources suggest that Spurs may pick him up for approximately £15m - the amount Madrid owe Tottenham for the purchase of Luka Modric last summer.
