Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas expects a busy final few days of the summer market.
Four signings have already arrived and there could be more than three new faces in the squad by the time the transfer window shuts on Monday night.
Villas-Boas, who has recorded three straight wins without Bale, is sure his team will be able to cope without a man who scored 26 goals for the club last term.
"We have a very, very strong team the same," he said. "If this transfer happens, it will give the opportunity for others to step up their game and I think we have seen that in the last couple of games.
"There has been no disruption. We've been working well, the team is training very, very well and we have had three wins."
Vlad Chiriches is expected to complete his move to Spurs from Steaua Bucharest by the time they face Arsenal on Sunday, but Villas-Boas says even more targets could be signed after that.
"We will continue re-strengthening the squad," he said.
"Not only those players, others as well."
