The summer transfer window is now in full swing as Spurs head coach, Jose Mourinho, eyes up potential targets that could help the squad bring some silverware home next season.

An area in the squad that Daniel Levy should be looking to invest in is the wide men, Spurs completed a shrewd move for Steven Bergwijn in January, but the team would definitely benefit by having more players that are comfortable out wide.

Here are five wingers that the club should have on their shortlist to bring to N17 this summer.

Pizzi

Starting off the list is highly rated Benfica right sided midfielder, Pizzi. The Portuguese international enjoyed an amazing run of form throughout the 2019/20 season and was one of the club’s standout performers.

The 30-year-old racked up 30 goals and 17 assists in all competitions making him a strong candidate for our Portuguese boss. (talkSPORT)

It is reported that if Spurs were to bring Pizzi to North London it would come at a cost of around £18 million (A Bola), a fee which is well in the realm of the club’s notoriously low budget.

He would bring another attacking outlet to the side, which is much needed due to the build up of fixtures early on in the season and would be a great addition.

Demarai Gray

Next up on the list is Leicester City and former England under 21 winger Demarai Gray, who has emerged as one of the clubs top targets this window.

Gray, who is relatively young as 24, has been reported to be on Mourinho’s radar and would be a good player to add to the first team ranks. (Football Insider)

The left-sided attacker failed to hold down a regular starting place under Brendan Rodgers, but things could change if he were to make the switch.

There is no doubt Gray would be a strong signing to make as he played 21 times in the Premier League last season as well as a handful of appearances in both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup (transfermarkt).

Gareth Bale

Another potential player that Daniel Levy should consider is none other than former Spurs hero Gareth Bale.

If the club were to welcome back the Welshman it would be one of signings of the window.

The four-time Champions League winner would bring the world class talent needed to boost the club to the next level. (Transfermarkt)

Bale’s transfer saga has been well covered over the last couple of years and with continuous reports of his disagreements with Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, a return to N17 could be his best shot at playing regular football once more. (Marca)

David Brooks

Next up on the list of potential wingers that could be wearing Spurs colours next season is highly rated AFC Bournemouth talent David Brooks.

Following the Cherries relegation to the Championship, many Premier League teams have had their eyes on some of the club’s top talents and Brooks is said to be on Spurs’ radar. (Sky Sports)

The Welsh international suffered an unfortunate ankle injury which ruled him out for the most part of last season, however his performances in previous years are enough to realise his talent.  (Tranfermarkt)

Ismaila Sarr

Last on the list, is a player that should be very high on Spurs’ priorities this window in the form of Watford winger Ismaila Sarr.

The 22-year-old caught the eye for the Hornets last season in what was his first campaign in the top flight.

Watford, who failed to beat the drop are reported to be setting the price for the attacker at over a whopping £40 million (Sky Sports), meaning Levy may be reluctant to bring him to Hotspur Way.
