Tottenham Hotspur are looking to make room in their squad for players who can take them into the Champions League next season, with the likes of Scott Parker, Clint Dempsey and Emmanuel Adebayor all to be made available, the
Spurs missed out on a place in the Premier League’s top four by a single point, falling behind Arsenal despite beating the Gunners in early March. In an effort to surpass Arsene Wenger’s side next season, Tottenham will seek bigger name players to compliment Gareth Bale and try to return to the Champions League, having competed in the Europa League this season.
That means both Dempsey and Adebayor, who were each only signed last summer, could be free to leave White Hart Lane, having scored seven and five league goals each respectively. Christian Benteke, the Aston Villa centre-forward, and Barcelona’s David Villa are among the names targeted by Andre Villas-Boas, with Jermain Defoe likely confined to a substitute’s role if he even stays on board.
William Gallas is expected to leave the club when his contract expires, Tom Huddlestone is keen to secure first team football and is willing to move on to do so, and Parker is available if the right fee is offered. Parker has been linked to Queens Park Rangers and the fitness of Sandro, who missed much of the season with a knee injury, could mean Parker is allowed to move on.
David Bentley, Danny Rose and Heurelho Gomes could all need to find new clubs as well, although it is not thought that Gylfi Sigurdsson will join them despite the Iceland international having previously been eager to get more first team football despite only moving to Tottenham last summer.
