The glaring issue in Tottenham's squad is the lack of a reliable striker.
Jermain Defoe is hit-and-miss, Emmanuel Adebayor largely useless and Clint Dempsey is better in a deeper role.
The side relied on Gareth Bale's goals last season. If they had a prominent 20-goal striker, they'd likely be playing in the UEFA Champions League in 2013-14.
The lack of depth in the winger department at Spurs is astonishing, and Andre Villas-Boas must do something to sort it out.
Whether that's welcoming Andros Townsend back into a more regular role or signing a new player, it's unclear. Either way, Spurs looked painfully thin on the flanks last season when Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale were out.
Benoit Assou-Ekotto was a fine full-back three seasons ago, but he's no longer cutting it.
It's a notoriously difficult spot to fill in a roster with only a small percentage of players being naturally left-footed, but there are a few names that AVB could target.
