The summer of 2013 is one Spurs fans will soon want to forget.
If losing their prized asset in Gareth Bale wasn’t enough, the signings made with the £85.3million kitty hardly made amends.
The Welsh playmaker spent six years at the North London club, scoring an impressive 26 goals in his final season at White Hart Lane.
Spurs are yet to make a real marquee signing since seeing him leave, with the acquisition of Toby Alderweireld only costing them £11.5million in 2015.
But former team-mate of Bale, Jermaine Jenas, believes Spurs would be his preferred option should he make a return to the Premier League.
“I’d go and get Gareth Bale,” Jenas told Dream Team when asked who an ideal signing would be for Spurs this summer.
He continued: “I know Gaz pretty well and he’s at the biggest football club in the world. I know he’s happy and loving life in Madrid.”
Jenas, speaking behind-the-scenes at BT Sport’s ‘Score’ show, believes the Welshman wants to build on his existing legacy in England.
He said: “I always had that feeling that he’d like to come back to the Premier League and have a legacy within the league.
“And if he ever did – and the budget was limitless – there’s your man who is winning things, still young and got the experience.
“He’s a Spurs boy after all.”
