Juande Ramos’ first summer transfer period as Tottenham’s manager figured to be an exciting one. It is already off to a flying start as Spurs have landed Croatian midfielder Luka Modric, one of the most highly-sought-after players available this summer. The fee is being reported as a whopping 20 million euros (about $31.8 million for those of you who don’t know the conversion rate).

Modric’s arrival should provide a considerable boost for a Tottenham attack that has struggled at times this year. It should also mean the departure of current central midfielder Jermaine Jenas.

With this much spent on Modric you have to wonder how many more players Ramos will be able to sign. Will he find the goalkeeper he desperately needs? PSV star Gomes and Espanyol goalkeeper Carlos Kameni are on the radar. Will there be money left for a quality forward?
