    Tottenham Hotspur are planning to sign Cardiff City goalkeeper David Marshall and centre-back Steven Caulker, per Andrew Gwilym at the Mirror.

    Cardiff's relegation to the Championship will prompt the sale of all their Premier League-standard players. 

    Marshall is an elite goalkeeper. Caulker is a solid defender. 

Frank de Boer and Mauricio Pochettino Candidates to Replace Tim Sherwood

    Ajax manager Frank de Boer and Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino are the two primary candidates to replace Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood, per Gerry Cox at the Telegraph.

    So, who are the leading candidates to replace Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and technical director Franco Baldini?

    Despite Sherwood's tactical shortcomings, Spurs are still sixth.

    Given De Boer's track record of winning four straight Eredivisie titles, he would be the ideal manager to succeed Sherwood. 

Ogenyi Onazi

    Lazio central midfielder Ogenyi Onazi is a transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur, per Nick Lustig at the Daily Star.

    Onazi has accumulated 67 tackles and 26 interceptions in 28 Serie A games this season. 

    If Spurs manager Tim Sherwood loses his job, then Sandro, who has fallen out of favour, could stay. 

    Also, what about Nabil Bentaleb? Paulinho? 

    One of the aforementioned three needs to make way if the Onazi rumour is true. 

Andros Townsend

    Tottenham Hotspur right attacking midfielder Andros Townsend will be put on the transfer market, per Dave Kidd at the Mirror.

    Unless an absurd £15 million bid is lodged, Spurs should not sell Townsend.

    He may be inefficient—one goal and no assists from 25 Premier League games—but he has pace, excellent dribbling ability and is a lively threat. 

    The only reason why Spurs would sell Townsend is if the medical department is projecting that ankle surgery will debilitate his career.
