According to a report in the print edition of The Sunday Mirror, page 67 (as relayed by TBR Football), Tottenham believe that they are in pole position to secure the signature of Antalyaspor winger, Paul Mukairu at the end of the season.
Mukairu, who is out on loan at Anderlecht this season, has established himself as a key player for Vincent Kompany side’s, with the winger managing four goals and four assists so far.
The report claims that several European clubs are tracking the youngster on the back of his breakthrough season in Belgium this year, with Bayern Leverkusen and Villarreal hot on Tottenham’s heels.
However, it is suggested that Spurs believe they can beat out the competition for the 21-year-old when the transfer window opens in the summer.
According to The Mirror, the North Londoners could land the Nigerian for a modest £4m fee at the end of the season.

While apart from our obvious deficiencies at centre-back, we also lack forwards/wingers who can run with the ball and beat players. We saw the big difference Bale made when he came on against West Ham as he was willing to take risks in possession. That is another area we should sort out in the summer.
