Tottenham Hotspur have three potential signing in their sights should star man Gareth Bale leave the club at the end of the season.

The Welsh winger is on the radar of Real Madrid and Manchester United even with the attacker being priced at £70million by chief Daniel Levy.

Shakhtar Donetsk's Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Ajax's Christian Eriksen and Sevilla's Alvaro Negredo are the three players that Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has in mind should Bale leave, according to Portguese sports paper Bola.

Armenian Mkhitaryan has impressed a number of clubs this season with some sublime performances for the Ukrainian champions, most notably Manchester City and Chelsea, who have been linked with the midfielder.

Danish starlet Eriksen has also been in fine form this season and is seen as one of the brightest young talents around.

The 21-year-old is also reported to be a transfer target for Italian side Inter Milan and fellow Premier League club Liverpool, with the player's contract expiring in 2014.

Spanish striker Negredo almost joined Premier League rivals Everton in the January transfer window and is tipped to join the Toffees during the summer.

However, Spurs will be able to offer substantially more money for the forward if Bale is bought during the summer which may change the destination from Goodison Park to White Hart Lane for the Spaniard. 

Tottenham seem to be putting in contingency plans if Bale does leave, but Villas-Boas would much rather see the Welshman remain in north London.
