Will Tottenham sign Shaw?

Posted on | November 27, 2013 | No Comments

Tottenham were one of the biggest spenders last summer but the things are still not going as good as they planned. Tottenham spent over €100 millions on Cristian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Vlad Chiriches, Etienne Capoue, Roberto Soldado, Nacer Chadli and Paulinho.

Anyway the London club have lost their star Gareth Bale who left for Real Madrid for an impressive sum of £80 millions.

After 12 games Tottenham are out of European cup places, 9th in the premier league standings, at 8 points behind first place occupied by Arsenal and 2 points behind 4th place which would assure a Champions League qualification spot.

Despite having a numerous squad Villas-Boas is forced to improvise at left back. Danny Rose is injured and the Portuguese manager is forced to play with Vertonghen in that position.

Villas-Boas declared recently that Tottenham will not buy a new defender this winter even if Danny Rose will be out for a longer period. Anyway there are rumors that suggest that Tottenham are interested in signing Southampton wonderkid Luke Shaw.

The 18 years old defender made 28 appearances last season and another 10 this year. His performances could not go unnoticed by the big clubs. Chelsea are also interested in signing the player but Tottenham are in pole position right now.
