Brazilian star Hulk has yet again expressed his desire to work with Andre Villas-Boas and he could be the answer to Spurs' struggles this season.
Hulk, who moved to Zenit St-Petersburg at the start of last season, has really struggled to settle in Russia. He fell out with manager Luciano Spalletti midway through last season and expressed his desire to leave, however FIFA regulations banned him from moving.
When in charge at FC Porto, Hulk scored 36 goals in 51 appearances for AVB, winning the Europa League and the domestic double.
"I learned a lot with Andre Villas-Boas at Porto," he told in twentyfour7 magazine.
And this is Spurs' ideal time to snap up the forward.
Since losing Gareth Bale to Real Madrid last season, Tottenham have really struggled to score goals. They have netted just nine in their ten league games.
Despite bringing in big money signings like Paulinho, Christian Eriksen, Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela, the north London club have struggled.
In their last game against Everton, despite dominating possession for long periods of the game, they didn't know what to do when in the final third.
Spurs spent £95m on attacking players. Scoring nine goals is just not good enough, especially for a side who are challenging for the title.
It could be a very tight finish to the league this year and goal difference could play a major part. It is only the fact that the Tottenham defence is rock solid that their goal difference is decent as it stands.
It seems they are missing Gareth Bale for that bit of magic. It bailed them out enough times last season.
Hulk can certainly do this. The attacker loves to run at defenders with the ball at his feet. He has that bit of magic that Spurs have lost.
The Brazilian can certainly play the Gareth Bale role.
Last year, the Welshman played a free role up top. Hulk is very much suited to the club's style of play and he can score the goals to push Tottenham to qualification for the Champions League.
