Tottenham Hotspur are facing a big few weeks in the transfer market.

After finishing in sixth position last season the north London side will be competing in the Europa League this time around.

But make no mistake, that is not what is classed as acceptable by supporters.

Jose Mourinho has come in with a strong track record of winning trophies and the hope is that he'll be able to do exactly that during his time with Spurs as well as getting the team back into the Champions League next term.

But if they're to do that then it's going to take some significant work both on and off the pitch.

Daniel Levy has already made three senior additions to his squad this summer, while reports continue to link them with a move for a striker.

But one rumour that doesn't seem to be disappearing is the link with Gareth Bale.

The Wales international faces an uncertain future at Real Madrid after his high-profile fallout with the club.

The latest reports have suggested that the Spanish side could ask for as little as £18.5million to sign the winger, with both Spurs and Man United linked with a move.

It remains to be seen if either of the two sides will take up that opportunity to sign the 31-year-old, but according to ESPN the north London side may have been handed a boost to any hopes of securing a deal.

It's claimed that Mourinho is keen to add attacking reinforcements to the team, and given Man United's pursuit of Jadon Sancho, it seems that Spurs could be in the driving seat.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees Bale as a backup option, and that could mean that Tottenham's need for creativity could play into their hands.

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

What a deal this would be if it was to come off.

Valued at £25.2million by Transfermarkt, a permanent switch for Gareth Bale seems to be out of the question given his extortionate £600k per week wage packet.

That said, a loan move may very well be on the cards.

The Wales star is more than capable of being a big player for a top club in the Premier League, and so if Spurs can get such a deal done it was be a huge boost.

Of course there will be a lot of negotiating to do in order to find a deal that suits all parties, but this is certainly one to watch.
