Tottenham Hotspur fans are desperate for their club to add some bodies this winter with a number of targets sighted by Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino. The Times believe Adrien Rabiot is prepared to join on loan but Burnley’s striker Danny Ings won’t be signing.

Adrien Rabiot had a number of teams where he developed through his youth career including a short spell at Manchester City’s academy. Rabiot finally settled at PSG and graduated to the first team in August 2012 under Carlo Ancelotti. In 2013 Rabiot had a short loan spell with Toulouse but has shown his talents in the midfield with PSG, playing in 34 Ligue 1 matches. The 19-year-old was set to depart France this summer after falling out of favour with the talent filled squad but it appears he may be convinced to just move on loan to Tottenham Hotspur for the rest of the 2014/15 campaign.

Tottenham want to clear out their midfield, Moussa Dembele and Paulinho the main players on the transfer list. The Daily Express believe though that clubs are not willing to meet the £17m Spurs want for Paulinho. Emmanuel Adebayor is another player Spurs are desperate to offload but it seems a loan deal may be all that they can achieve.

Burnley’s forward Danny Ings was a target whose contract is up at the end of the season but it seems the Premier League newbys will keep hold of Ings in an attempt to convince him to stay. Tottenham supporters will be pleased with the loan of Adrien Rabiot though who is extremely talented and is ready to bring his abilities to England.

Spurs fans, who do you want to sell? Who do you want your club to buy?
