Andrea Pirlo - Who needs him the most? (3)

Spurs boss Andre-Villas Boas heavily strengthened his midfield during the summer transfer window, largely thanks to the funds made available due to the always-imminent departure of Welsh star Gareth Bale to Real. 

Central trio Etienne Capoue, Christian Eriksen and Paulinho have joined talented Belgian Mousa Dembele, Sandro, Lewis Holtby and Gylfi Sigurdsson in competing for the coveted roles in the North London outfit's midfield. 

Sunday's shock 3-0 drubbing at the hands of fierce rivals West Ham United aside, Spurs have largely started the season in promising fashion and their midfield has been impressive. Dembele and Paulinho seem to have formed an instant understanding while Eriksen and Sigurdsson have looked menacing behind lone frontman Roberto Soldado.

Do they need him?

Whether it would be particularly wise to disrupt such a promising partnership at such an early stage of its development is questionable, but Pirlo would undoubtedly add a touch of class at White Hart Lane and help to create chances for Soldado and England international Jermain Defoe.
