It seems incredible to me that Jermain Defoe is being linked with a move to the English second division this January, with Queens Park Rangers interested in his services. Okay, the Rs are likely to be a Premier League club again next season if they continue their fine form, but Defoe is a remarkable striker and in my opinion is worthy of a regular spot at a Premier League side.
With Paulinho and Sandro operating so efficiently in the middle of the Tottenham side, here are 5 players from the Brazilian topflight that could improve the current Spurs side.
Adebayor linked with move away from White Hart Lane - 3 reasons why a move to Besiktas would be a positive one
With news that Besiktas are looking into the possibility of taking Emmanuel Adebayor off Spurs' hands, here are three reasons as to why I think it would be a good move.
Tottenham reinvested heavily over the summer after the loss of Gareth Bale and it looks like it's starting to pay off. Spurs have won five of their Premier League games from their first eight and sit level on points with Manchester City, but it's their form in the Europa League that has impressed. But do they have a real chance of winning the competition?
Tottenham bounced back from their disappointing defeat to West Ham with an impressive victory against Aston Villa, and host a Hull side who have made a good start to the season.
Andre Villas-Boas was one busy bee this summer. With a huge transfer budget to dig into thanks to the impending Gareth Bale move, he moved for several players.

Close your ears Tottenham fans - The Metro are reporting that Inter are ready to offer £6m for midfield favourite Sandro. However, here are three reasons why Spurs should keep hold of the 24-year-old Brazilian.
When Christian Benteke signed for Aston Villa last summer from Genk, few could have envisaged the impact that he would have on the Midlands club, nor the Premier League. His 23 goals in 39 games last term ensured that Villa retained their topflight status and had the bigger clubs swarming around his signature. But after he signed a new deal at Villa Park it was time to settle down and go again.
While north London erupted this summer with the arrival of Mesut Ozil and the departure of Gareth Bale, there has been little time for talk of much else. The space that has been left has been dominated by the form of Andros Townsend for both club and country and Arsenal being top of the league, and left the rest on the scrap heap. While Spurs went about spending the millions of pounds they did over the summer, there was a forgotten man who was not ready to let his place in the side go. That man was Iceland international Gylfi Sigurdsson.
They say the Premier League is one of the most physical topflights in world football, and if that's so then it'll be interesting to see how this chap gets on should a move transpire. The Express are reporting that 17-year-old Alen Halilovic is again linked with Tottenham this January - despite the best efforts of his father, with a £17m deal being lined up. But who is he?
Tottenham moved up into fifth place in the Premier League table this weekend after they disposed of Aston Villa in Sunday's late kick off.
