Tottenham Hotspur are preparing a £35m ($56m) swoop for three attack minded players this summer, with Mauricio Pochettino looking to add more depth in his attacking front, according to Goal.

Spurs lost their first game against Manchester United 1-0 in spite of being on top for a major chunk of the match. Their failure to put the ball into the net despite several opportunities can come back to haunt them later in the season, something which the manager is looking to address as soon as possible.

They are close to completing a deal for Clinton N'Jie from Lyon who is expected to be available for a fee in the range of £10.6m ($17m) this summer.

The Cameroonian can play as a striker or a winger and his pace will add some much needed variation to an otherwise one-dimensional attack at White Hart Lane. He scored seven goals and made seven assists last season for the Ligue 1 runners-up and will be an astute addition to the first eleven.

Spurs are also in close discussion with United over a possible transfer for Javier Hernandez, who spent a year on loan at Real Madrid last season. The striker was surplus to requirements at United, but Louis van Gaal has revealed that he is willing to give the Mexican another chance to cement his position at the club.

Moreover, Pochettino is also waiting on West Bromwich Albion's stance on Saido Berahino, who was their top scorer last season with 14 goals. Tottenham are willing to go up to £15m ($23m) for his signature, but West Brom have told the north London club that they need to make a much higher bid to bring the transfer to fruition.

Manchester City's emergence as their competitors for the 22-year-old's signature has made talks even more difficult, with the 2013/14 Champions at a much better financial shape than Spurs to agree a deal.

However, they are likely to keep holding on to Harry Kane, with the report stating that the club have refused to sell the player to a rival party this season.
