Tottenham have always been one of the best clubs around at producing genuine world class talents.

At their best, Spurs play scintillating attacking football and have enthralled fans at the old White Hart Lane and in their stadium in north London over the years. Some truly special players have made their mark with Tottenham.

Here are the most dynamic players in Tottenham's history - ranked.

Whenever your side need a goal, there aren't many players better to call upon than Jermain Defoe.

Always a bundle of energy whenever looking to get a shot away in the box, Defoe consistently got goals for Tottenham and was a particularly excellent option off the bench.

8. Christian Eriksen

Drifting all over the midfield to pick out passes and make Spurs tick, Christian Eriksen served his best years in north London before leaving for Inter.

His terrific eye for a pass and long shot ability marked him out as one of the most impressive and dynamic stars in the Premier League during his time in England.

7. Jurgen Klinsmann

He only spent two seasons with Tottenham, but Germany legend Jurgen Klinsmann made an undeniable impact during his time at White Hart Lane.

After an impressive first season, Klinsmann came back for another term on loan to help Spurs get out of a relegation battle, with four strikes against Wimbledon proving particularly pivotal.

6. Lucas Moura

Perhaps the very definition of a 'moments' player, Lucas Moura has made some crucial contributions to Tottenham's recent history.

He scored the goal which helped the Lilywhites qualify for the knockout stages of the 2018/19 Champions League, and famously dragged them to the final of the competition with a hat trick in the semi final second leg.

5. Ledley King

We all know how badly injuries ruined Ledley King's playing career, but whenever he did play, there were few defenders around who could match his intelligence and dominance.

His recovery challenge on Arjen Robben during a 2-1 victory over Chelsea in 2006 showed just how deceptively quick and powerful he was in Tottenham's defence.

4. Jimmy Greaves

Jimmy Greaves was one of the most prolific scorers in football history and enjoyed his best years in the white of Tottenham.

While he had more of a relaxed attitude, his predatory instincts in the box made him a threat in every game he played. The former England international racked up over 450 club goals, with 268 of those coming for Spurs.

3. Harry Kane

Another of the club's all time leading scorers, Harry Kane has helped himself to goals in north London since breaking into the first team in 2015.

There was perhaps no better display of his dynamism than when he announced himself to the world in Tottenham's 5-3 victory over Chelsea.

2. Son Heung-min

Tottenham's leading light right now, Son Heung-min has always had an eye for the spectacular and injects energy into the Tottenham team whenever he gets on the ball.

The South Korean has often showed up when it matters most for Spurs, especially during their run to the Champions League final in 2019.

1. Gareth Bale

As dynamic players go, Gareth Bale is right up there in the annals of football history, not just Spurs.

Whether he was cascading down the wing making a fool of Maicon or cutting inside and leathering thunderbolts into the top corner, nobody electrified the old White Hart Lane in the modern era quite like the legendary Welshman.
