Tottenham have a crucial set of fixtures on the horizon that will help define their season, but for the meantime they are fourth in the Premier League and still alive in the Champions League group stages.
Spurs went the entire summer transfer window without recruiting any new faces and they could do with a couple of additions when January comes around.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino is desperately in need of a quality defensive midfielder, as Victor Wanyama has fallen out of favour this season and it is the area of the pitch they are lacking.
Harry Winks can play the anchor role as the deep-lying playmaker effectively, while the duo of Moussa Sissoko and Mousa Dembele can provide the work-rate in the centre of the park.
But they may just be a defensive midfielder light from really challenging this season and should try rectify that in the January transfer window.
Spurs can see the perfect example of what they need over at North London rivals in the shape of Lucas Torreira.
The 22-year-old Uruguay international arrived at the Emirates Stadium in the summer for £26million (Sky Sports) and has taken to the Premier League perfectly.
He is a no-nonsense central midfielder that gets about the pitch and provides a perfect screen in front of the defence, while he also isn’t afraid to put a tackle in.
Arsenal enforcer Torreira has the potential to be one of the division’s best defensive midfielders and Spurs are crying out for somebody with his qualities to add to their squad.
