Tottenham Hotspur do not need to invest in any players in the January transfer window, unless it is a top class left-back.
The north London club have always been in trouble when it comes to defending on the left-wing.
Last summer, Spurs saw the return of Danny Rose as a left-back after Tottenham’s former head coach, Andre Villas-Boas, let Benoit Assous-Ekotto go to Queens Park Rangers on a season-long loan.
However, Rose has struggled as a left-back this season. Jan Vertonghen has been used as cover for Tottenham’s weakness, but the Belgian star is better suited at centre-back.
The arrival of a proper left-back such as Fabio Coentrao from Real Madrid or Everton talisman Leighton Baines could strengthen Tottenham’s defensive line.
Therefore, Vertonghen could be back as a centre-back and play alongside talented defender Vlad Chiriches, who has impressed since his arrival.
Tim Sherwood has done very well so far this season, with five wins and one draw and needs to work around the seven players Tottenham acquired last summer.
Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela and Andros Townsend can make a massive impact for Tottenham to secure a place in the top four and qualify for the Champions League if Sherwood succeeds to get the best out of them when they play alongside Emmanuel Adebayor and Christian Eriksen.
