Lennon latest Spurs star under threat
Aaron Lennon, Tottenham Hotspur
Fulham's Moussa Dembele is set to be unveiled as a Spurs player on Wednesday following a medical to complete a £15million move from Craven Cottage.
Porto's £20million-rated playmaker Joao Moutinho is also on Tottenham's radar, with swoops for Lyon goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, Shakhtar Donestsk striker Willian and CSKA Moscow midfielder Alan Dzagoev all in the frame.
That has left some of the north London club's senior stars facing an uncertain future with Dutchman Rafael van der Vaart almost certain to follow Luka Modric out of the exit door in a £9million move to former club Hamburg.
Michael Dawson was also granted permission to talk to QPR before the defender relented and now doubt surrounds 25-year-old winger Lennon.
According to The Sun the England wideman, who has spent seven years at the Barclays Premier League outfit following his move from Leeds, has a battle to convince Villas-Boas to keep him following the manager's failed attempt to sign Adam Johnson.
'There is a lot of anxiety in the dressing room,' a club insider reportedly told the newspaper.
'A lot of established names are starting to realise they are not safe with the new man in charge.'
Villas-Boas is desperate to make his mark on Tottenham and hopes to introduce a wave of new arrivals in time for this weekend's home clash against Norwich, where he is searching for his first win in charge.
