Tottenham Hotspur are seemingly back on track now following a chaotic start to the season.
The north Londoners made a dreadful start which saw Mauricio Pochettino get the sack as manager, with Jose Mourinho his replacement.
The Portuguese has been in charge for almost a month now and so far, so good.
He has overseen four victories from his first five games, and the club are up to seventh in the Premier League table, just six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
The goal will surely be for Spurs to finish in the top four once again and to increase the likelihood of that, Mourinho will need reinforcements in January.
Two players that have been linked recently come from the same side in Edin Dzeko (Mirror) and Lorenzo Pellegrini (Calciomercato) of AS Roma, and a potential double deal would boost Spurs’ hopes significantly.
TBR’s view – Two top signings
Mourinho reportedly wants to sign another striker (Telegraph) and Dzeko would be absolutely brilliant backup for Harry Kane.
The Bosnia international has been fairly prolific over in Italy despite his advancing years (198 appearances, 95 goals), and obviously he has Premier League experience having been a two-time title winner with Manchester City.
Playmaker Pellegrini has been limited to 11 appearances this term due to injury, but has still managed to produce eight assists in all competitions, with three coming in one game against Sassuolo earlier in the season.
He’d be fairly expensive, but selling the seemingly wantaway Christian Eriksen could offset the cost.
The pair are, without question, two of Roma’s best players and Spurs sealing transfers for both would be absolutely clutch from chairman Daniel Levy.
