There has seldom been a day during the summer transfer window where Tottenham Hotspur have not been mentioned in the rumour mill.

From the Gareth Bale saga to the four incoming players, Spurs have dipped their hand in almost everything this summer.

With just over three weeks left in the summer transfer window, Tottenham are still reportedly in the mix for a few players, and of course the Bale saga has failed to go away just yet.

As the English Premier League season approaches and the transfer window dwindles down, here is a look at a few players, both potentially coming into White Hart Lane and out, that fans would love to see involved in a Tottenham transfer.


Transfers In

Alvaro Morata, F, Real Madrid

Alvaro Morata has played just 18 first-team matches for Real Madrid, but that does not mean he cannot be a coveted transfer prospect of Tottenham. 

According to Pete Jenson of the Telegraph, Morata's move to White Hart Lane is a sticking point of Spurs chairman Daniel Levy if Los Blancos want to acquire Bale.

The winner of the European U-21 Championships Golden Boot this summer is one of the most coveted young talents in the world at the moment, and Levy should not be at fault for demanding his inclusion in a potential Bale sale.

At 6'3", Morata could turn into a strong aerial threat in the penalty area on set pieces to go along with his already-growing skill set.

If he joins up with Tottenham, Morata could be able to learn under fellow Spaniard Roberto Soldado at the forward position as he looks to develop into one of the potentially great forwards in world football.


Alvaro Vadillo, M, Real Betis

Keeping with the theme of talented young Spaniards who have attracted interest from Tottenham, Real Betis winger Alvaro Vadillo has been linked with the North London club for most of the summer. 

According to Ben Jefferson of the Express, Vadillo's arrival at White Hart Lane could be reliant on the potential departure of Bale out of North London.

Just two years ago at 16, Vadillo became the second-youngest player ever to play in La Liga, but as Jefferson notes in his report, the now 18-year-old has suffered some recent injury setbacks.

An attacking player with a history of injuries early in his career would scare away some clubs, but with the raw talent that Vadillo has shown in his young career, he would be well worth the risk.


Transfers Out:

Emmanuel Adebayor, F, Tottenham

The transfer wish list of Tottenham fans does not exclude the potential departures of a few players.

One of the players that fans of the North London club would love to see leave this summer is forward Emmanuel Adebayor:

From the report made by Neil Ashton of the Daily Mail, it seems as though the Togolese forward's former club, Real Madrid, also do not want him around.

According to Ashton, Levy tried to dump Adebayor on to the shoulders of Real Madrid in a potential Bale deal, but the Spanish giants were having none of it.

It will be very hard to offload the disappointing forward to a willing club this summer, but if some club does step forward to bring in Adebayor with open arms, Spurs fans will celebrate the departure of the less-than-productive player with many cheers.


Scott Parker, M, Tottenham

Cashing in on surplus players is a characteristic that big clubs like Tottenham have during the transfer window.

Midfielder Scott Parker is just that at the moment, as it looks like he will be buried on the Spurs' depth chart when the season begins on August 18 against Crystal Palace.

With playing time coming at a premium for the 32-year-old, a move to another club in England would be a bit of positive business for Spurs.

However, Parker's departure from White Hart Lane is less than immediate, as a bid from his former manager Harry Redknapp of Queens Park Rangers was denied, according to the Express.

Just a few weeks ago, Jack De Menezes of the Independent reported that Parker was also linked with a return to West Ham United, which is a move that would keep him in the EPL for this season.

Parker's move will come as no surprise if it goes through, and for Spurs fans it would be a deal that needed to be done a long time ago as the club looks to get younger and build for the future.
