And then Nacer Chadli made two.
Upon completion, it will become Tottenham's second signing of the summer following their earlier purchase of Paulinho from Corinthians.
With weeks to go until the start of the season, let alone the end of the transfer window, this will not mean the end of Spurs-related speculation.
In the eyes of many of the club's supporters, bringing in a new striker remains a priority.
Andre Villas-Boas' squad also has some players rival teams will only be too happy to take off their hands, should they become available.

Following the Marca story earlier in the week (see below), the English media has been increasingly talking up the notion that Gareth Bale has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid.
The Observer's David Hytner has described the attacker as being "distraught" at Tottenham's refusal to consider a bid from Real Madrid—one the writer has at £86.3 million.
Meanwhile The Sun's Anthony Kastrinakis has a different take on an offer the La Liga club are preparing. He has outlined a bid composed of "£51m cash plus £25m-rated Angel Di Maria and £19m Fabio Coentrao."
As noted by the Daily Telegraph's Mark Ogden, Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas' public stance on the situation has remained largely unyielding.
He is understandably displeased by speculation about one of his best players distracting from his team's preseason preparations.
Villas-Boas has dared not publicly contemplate the prospect of losing Bale. Privately at least, if these reports are anything to go by, that is something he may now be doing.
Ahead of Tottenham's game with South China out in Hong Kong, Andre Villas-Boas has hinted that the club is in talks with Gareth Bale about a new contract.
While SkySports.com (among others) are leading with this, Villas-Boas also strongly emphasized the fact that Bale had already signed a long-term contract last year—on which three years still remain.
If Spurs fans are looking for signs that Bale plans to stay, they might want to check out this Daily Mail article by Mike Anstead, which carries quotes from an interview the player gave to UK-based Match of the Day magazine.
The latest edition of the primarily youth-oriented publication has Bale talking about Spurs' prospects for the season, notably the possibility of the team mounting a title challenge.

Spanish newspaper Marca have claimed Gareth Bale has told Tottenham Hotspur he wants to join Real Madrid.
The story, translated here through a Daily Mail article by Chris Wheeler, also says that a deal is close to completion.
Both reports have come after Andre Villas-Boas has reiterated that the player is not for sale.
"He is a player that we are willing to continue to have, he's a Tottenham player, he's one of the most fantastic players in the world at the moment and we are counting on him for the future," Villas-Boas said at a preseason press conference out in Hong Kong, as quoted by SkySports.com.

With Luis Suarez's departure looking a strong possibility, Brendan Rodgers is said to have identified the Valencia striker as a replacement.
Tottenham will have to get a move on completing a deal for Soldado, or risk losing out on him to a Premier League rival.

Despite a lot of speculation as to how much Roberto Soldado will cost Tottenham, Valencia's president Amadeo Salvo seems to have made it clear.
"Soldado can go if he wants - for €30m (£26m) and under our conditions," Salvo is quoted by the Daily Express' Ben Jefferson as saying.
Spurs' negotiating party (which seems chiefly to have been technical director Franco Baldini) may have known this from the start.
For the rest of us, we now (hopefully) have a clearer idea of how much Spurs have to pay for Soldado. Now we wait to see just how much they want him.

The last 24 hours has seen several "developments" in regards to Roberto Soldado possibly joining Tottenham.
Quoted on SkySports.com from a press conference ahead of the Barclays Asia Trophy tournament in Hong Kong, manager Andre Villas-Boas confirmed Spurs' interest in the player.
Monday, July 22
The last few days have seen Valencia's Roberto Soldado come to the fore as the striker being most heavily linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
According to the Daily Star's Paul Brown, Liverpool are now also seeking to add the Spain international to their ranks.
Brown indicates any move will likely be dependent on Luis Suarez's future.
Should the Uruguayan depart, Soldado could become a priority for the Reds. If this is accurate, it may force Spurs to make a move sooner than they may have planned.

Ryan Mason has become the fourth Tottenham Hotspur player this summer to join Swindon Town on loan.
The club announced via their official website that, like Massimo Luongo, Grant Hall and Alex Pritchard, Mason will be spending the forthcoming season at the League One club.
Earlier this year the 22-year-old spent time at French club Lorient, but did not feature for their first-team.
The attacker made his first start for Tottenham in a 3-0 win over Carlisle United in the Capital One Cup last season.
In addition, he has made three substitute appearances in European games dating back to the 2008-09 campaign.
