With time ticking to prove a bigger and bigger enemy for us, this story may not be as far wide from the mark as some may think. Bilbao currently sit 6th in the La Liga and Spurs have thought to have activated a release clause in the player's contract. The fans' favourite has knocked up 13 goals in 23 appearances this season and is in his 7th season with the Spanish side.
At 25 the player still has a number of years in which to flourish and a move to White Hart Lane maybe just the answer that we need to pull us back into the top four; especially if Chelsea snap up Torres.
Of course this story is incredibly premature. Although, should there be some truth in it, then maybe this window will finally have a brighter end to it. Why do we leave things so late?
