Tottenham are reportedly targeting Kevin Kampl and Fabian Delph for the January transfer window with Mauricio Pochettino hoping the duo will solve Spurs' recent woes on the pitch.
Tottenham are currently tenth in the table and have had a topsy turvy season so far with pressure mounting on Pochettino as they look to challenge for a Champions League place.
A win over Hull in their last fixture was a sign of improvement for a side who have gone through four managers in just over two years, and now the Mirror are reporting that the manager will beef up Spurs' midfield in the hopes of getting more consistent.
Recent big-name signings such as Paulinho, Erik Lamela, Lewis Holtby and Nacer Chadli have failed to set the Premier League on fire and both Delph and Kampl are seen as more affordable options in the lead up to the winter window.
Starring for Red Bull Salzburg, Pochettino reportedly scouted Kampl during the week in the Europa League and Tottenham could offer him a wage package that might tempt a move to the Premier League.
Meanwhile Delph is out of contract with Aston Villa at the end of next season, giving Spurs a big chance of convincing the club to sell before they run the risk of receiving nothing for their star.
Recent reports have also claimed that Pochettino is hoping to clear out the Tottenham squad in January to make way for new signings, with the likes of Kyle Naughton, Aaron Lennon and Paulinho offered exits if the right amount is handed over to White Hart Lane.
It's believed that only if these players leave will the budget Pochettino needs to make his desired purchases be possible.
