Tottenham Hotspur have four games left ahead of what should be a very exciting summer for club and country. With the World Cup just around the corner, a plethora of Spurs internationals will be departing for Russia whilst the stunning new Spurs Stadium will enter the final stretch of construction.

There has been a number of Spurs transfer rumours circulating ahead of the summer window. Fernando Llorente, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose, and even Erik Lamela have been rumoured to leave North London, whilst Malcom, Ryan Sessignon, and even Gareth Bale have been linked with a move to Spurs.
The latest internet whisper dictates that Spurs will swoop for 21-year-old Portuguese international Ruben Neves. Neves has quite simply lit up the Championship this season as part of a very successful Wolverhampton Wanderers team set for the Premier League. Here is a collection of screamers the talented young man has scored for Wolves this season:

Spurs are also linked with two other Portugues players: Gelson Martins, who plays on the wing for Sporting Lisbon, and Southampton full-back Cedric Soares.
Whilst Ruben Neves will have eyes on him from all over the country, it seems that a midfielder of his position should not be on the Spurs priority list. Besides, the next step in his career would be to play Premier League football: there is no reason for him to leave. Soares could potentially fill a hole if Danny Rose takes inspiration from Kyle Walker and pursues another club. Similarly, if Lamela left, Gelson Marton has proven himself dangerous on both wings.
Can Spurs lift a trophy next Season?
Of course, at this stage in the season, it is all speculation. Would these players fit well into the Mauricio Pochettino philosophy? Could any of these Portuguese patrons be the missing puzzle piece that could win Spurs some silverware? With the move to the new Stadium next season, it is written in the stars that Spurs should christen their new home with a trophy. It is just a matter of which players will be there to lift one of those coveted cups.
