When the next season does eventually arrive Tottenham Hotspur are likely to require a defensive reshuffle. It's no secret that Jose Mourinho has failed to get to grips with the back line at Spurs with clean sheets a rarity since his arrival in November.

What would impress me - from a coaching perspective - would be to see Mourinho coach the group up to play with 5 at the back. Yes, true it hasn't worked so far but Jose hasn't had the opportunity and I think that with the group of player sticking around it could be the right base for us. The central group of 3 could pull from Toby, Davidson, Tanganga, Dier, Ben Davies and one more (a high quality addition); left wing back is Sessegnon and DC; right wing back - we have to go into the market for 1 probably 2 young players.
Aurier, Jan, KWP, Foyth likely all gone

These 'articles' make me laugh, we literally don't even know what next season will look like let alone what defence we'll have.

I bloody love an overhaul. I remember the summer of 2002 when we didn't have any central midfielders of note and were linked with a triple swoop for Pep Guardiola, Steffan Effenberg and Eric Carriere (The Next Zidane). Still, we got Kazayuki Toda in on loan.
