Tottenham linked with mercurial forward – easily the best business of their window

It seems that the transfer window is the ultimate game of brinkmanship as so many of the deals that will happen in this window will occur in the last few days of it.

Manchester United seem to be one of the clubs who are shuffling their pack the most and one of the victims, in the short-term at least, could be Danny Welbeck.

The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham may get their hands on Welbeck for a year long loan deal and we think he would be a great addition to the squad.

With Javier Hernandez also potentially leaving United this summer it’s rather puzzling that Manchester United should let such a player go. Welbeck is a superb athlete who never stops running. He’s also got raw pace and some real invention to his forward play. Add his adaptability and, at 23, you have a very valuable asset.

But with United’s fixture list much freer than in recent years – they’re out of The Capital One Cup and Europe of course – the idea of the loan will give the player lots of game time this season and allow Manchester United to see how he develops.

But make no mistake, if it happens this is the best bit of business that Tottenham will do in the last few days of the window – probably all summer.

Let’s see well back in action. Tottenham fans: keen?
