Tottenham want wholesale changes in squad

The Belgian international Moussa Dembele completed his £15 million move from Fulham on Wednesday and is ready to make his debut at home against Norwich City this Saturday.

"I'm happy to join Spurs, it's a fantastic club," Dembele told the club's official website.

"You can see over the last few years that Spurs have played well, everybody knows it's a good team and a good club and that's why I wanted to come here," the 25-year-old forward, who can play behind the striker as well as in midfield, said.

"The club has plans to do lots of good things and that's why I want to be a part of it," he said.

Meanwhile, Spurs aim to complete a no. of signings before the transfer deadline on Friday. The Londoners bid for Shakhtar Donetsk and Brazilian striker Willian had been turned down and now Spurs are planning to bid £15 million for France forward Loic Remy.

With £33 million in the bag from Modric's sale, manager Andre Villas-Boas is keen on bringing in fresh faces. Other targets linked to the club are £30m-rated Joao Moutinho from Porto, French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, Barcelona winger Ibrahim Afellay and finally £15m-rated midfielder Anderson from Manchester United.

Spurs, however, can't get their hands on most of them due to their high asking-price.
