Tottenham Hotspur have been eerily quiet so far this transfer season, leaving many fans to wonder just what is going on over at White Hart Lane. With time beginning to run out, Spurs better start making some moves if they hope to remain relevant in England's top tier.
It's not exactly a secret what Tottenham needs: better strikers. Much better strikers. And there's no better time than right now to bring them to White Hart Lane.
If only it were so easy. In recent days, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has expressed frustration with the transfer market, complaining that it's nearly impossible to compete with clubs like Manchester City when it comes to fees and wages.
"How do you compete with the Man City's of this world?" he lamented, adding, "It's gone beyond belief and made it really hard to compete for top players. If you want to be a top-four side, it's difficult because we can't pay those kind of wages."
In any case, there's only one way to ease the financial burden to get the players Spurs need to compete: start selling.
Spurs have plenty of players they can sell to bring in some cash without severely damaging their starting formation (and I'm not even including Luka Modric on this list, despite my personal opinion that Spurs need to get rid of him, and do it fast).
Here are six players that would fetch a reasonable price, eliminate some of Tottenham's wage burden, and help the club buy some quality forward attackers without necessarily destroying the best aspects of what they've built over the past couple of season.
