Poll of the Day: What is Villas-Boas' top priority at Tottenham?

The new Spurs boss faces uncertainty over the futures of Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart and has deals for a new striker and defender Jan Vertonghen to complete

Andre Villas-Boas was confirmed as Tottenham's new manager on Tuesday completing a remarkable turnaround following his sacking by Chelsea just five months ago.

The club have already signed their first player under his stewardship, with Gylfi Sigurdsson snubbing Liverpool to move to north London on Wednesday, but the Portuguese boss' work is far from done this summer.

Croatian midfielder Luka Modric's future is still uncertain given his failure to secure a move away from the club last summer and desire for Champions League football.

Meanwhile, Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen looked set to move to White Hart Lane before Redknapp's departure, but the switch has seemingly stalled during the reshuffle.

Rafael van der Vaart's former club Hamburg and Champions League side Schalke have revealed their interest in taking the playmaker back to the Bundesliga, something which could tempt the Dutchman with his wife still working in Germany.

Also, with Emmanuel Adebayor's loan deal having expired, and Louis Saha leaving after only six months at White Hart Lane, Tottenham have few options up front.


So, what do you think should be Villas-Boas' main priority? Sorting the futures of Van der Vaart or Modric? Or securing a new striker? Should shoring up the defence with Vertonghen in fact take precedence?  Let us know by voting in our poll and leaving us a comment below, or by getting involved with the debate on Facebook and Twitter.
