Tottenham Transfers: 4 Wingers Spurs Should Sign to Play Opposite Gareth Bale

With a 1-0 win last weekend over Sunderland, Tottenham separated themselves even further from Chelsea and Arsenal and took hold of third place in the league table.

It's been a rare season for the North London club, as Spurs fans have seen their club ascend to the point of being a legitimate challenge for either of the Manchester teams capturing a league title. 

Emmanuel Adebayor, who's on loan from Manchester City, has been having a career year, scoring eight goals in the team's first 15 games. Rafael Van der Vaart, who's been with the team since 2010, is on pace to have his best season since 2007-08.

But it's Gareth Bale who has really come into his own.

This season, Bale has scored five goals and assisted on four others. But it's his speed that puts opposing defenses on their heels. And it's his skill that sets up players like Adebayor and Van der Vaart.

One of the priorities for Tottenham during the winter transfer window is to now find a winger who can play opposite Bale.

Harry Redknapp needs to capitalize on the fact that Bale is so good that teams have started to double-team him.

Bale told the Daily Mail that the double-teaming tactic is "kind of a compliment. If they are developing tactics to try to stop me, it shows that I’m doing well. But it is annoying."

With all the attention that Bale is getting, Tottenham needs another winger so that opposing defenses are forced to balance their tactics. But who should that winger be?

Join me as I give you five of the wingers that should be on Tottenham's winter transfer window wish list.
