Spurs Still Desperate To Sell Emmanuel Adebayor Despite Player’s Wishes

Despite Emmanuel Adebayor recently taking to Twitter to express his interest in staying at Tottenham for another season, Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino are in agreement that the club should be looking to get the striker off their wage bill.

The striker is reportedly paid £100,000-per-week at Spurs, and The Telegraph claim that Spurs are very keen to get the striker off their wage bill, who is currently third choice behind Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado.

Daniel Levy is reportedly looking to sell the striker for a fee in the region of £5m, but may have to accept that he is not going to get that much for the Togo international, and is willing to accept an offer lower than £5m, and pay a percentage of his hefty £100,000-per-week wages to facilitate a move.

Just to put the move into perspective, the club interested in Adebayor will have to spend more on the striker’s wages for one year than the actual transfer fee, putting more emphasis on the need for Daniel Levy to contribute a percentage of his wages.

Clubs such as West Ham have previously been interested in the 30-year-old, but the striker’s wishes to stay as Tottenham have seen negotiations come to a stand-still in some cases. Will Emmanuel Adebayor leave Spurs this summer?

Paulinho Linked With Move To Premier League Club

According to Italian sources Sky Italia, Premier League new-boys Watford are set to make a move for Spurs Brazilian midfielder Paulinho, who has struggled to settle in at White Hart Lane since his £17m move in 2013.

Tottenham have given the midfielder more than enough time to adapt to English football, and are set to sell the Brazilian in a summer exodus along with the likes of Roberto Soldado and Vlad Chiriches.

The midfield partnership of Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb has been hard to break into, and fellow midfielders such as Paulinho and Benjamin Stambouli have been given limited first team minutes.

Watford are preparing for a Premier League season where their main objective will be to avoid relegation, and they hope that Paulinho will boost their chances of staying in the Premier League.

The Hornets have reportedly contacted Spurs over a move for the 26-year-old and will be hoping to sign the midfielder, and will get more first team opportunities, but whether he will be open to a move to Watford remains to be seen.

Spurs Transfer Gossip! Spurs Set For Summer Sale, Alderweireld, Yedlin & More

After completing the signing of Kieran Trippier on Friday, our second signing of the summer after Kevin Wimmer, Spurs will be looking to make some more signings over the summer transfer window, as well as get rid of some of the deadwood. Here are the latest rumours surrounding Spurs.

TEN Players Could Leave Spurs This Summer (The Telegraph)

The Telegraph claim that Tottenham could hold a massive summer clearout over the coming window, with ten players expected to leave. Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor are set to leave in a striking overhaul.

Paulinho, Benjamin Stambouli and Etienne Capoue could be sold in the centre of the midfield, and Vlad Chriches along with Younes Kaboul in the defence are not expected to make the cut. The club also are expected to sell Lewis Holtby. This would be a massive squad overhaul that Mauricio Pochettino obviously wants. The money earned from these transfers could be used to invest in new players now that Pochettino knows what areas of the pitch need strengthening for next season.

Spurs In Pole Position To Sign Toby Alderweireld (The Times)

The Times claim that Spurs are very close to signing Atletico Madrid centre-back Toby Alderweireld, and also report that the defender has told his closest friends that he will be joining Tottenham this summer over the season after the club have reportedly told him that he would be first choice along with Jan Vertonghen.

Reports suggest that Tottenham will pay around £18m for the defender, and Southampton are set to rival this with a bid of the same amount, but Spurs remain confident that the Belgian will choose Tottenham over Southampton. Mauricio Pochettino has experimented with many partners for Jan Vertonghen at the back, but so far, none have been consistently successful, and are targeting Alderweireld to partner his fellow Belgian at the heart of the defence.

DeAndre Yedlin Set For Loan Move To Premier League Club (The Telegraph)

Kieran Trippier signing for Tottenham Hotspur has left fans mulling over whether they would prefer to see Kyle Walker leave the club on a permanent deal, or American right-back DeAndre Yedlin move to a Premier League club on a loan deal.

A journalist of The Telegraph reckons that has the answer to this question, and believes that Tottenham will be loaning DeAndre Yedlin out to another Premier League club hoping that the right-back will come back having adapted to life in the Premier League and English football. Norwich have been linked with a move for the American and that could be his destination come the end of the summer transfer window, as the journalist has suggested in a recent tweet.

Mourinho Interested In Dembele (The Sun)

The Sun believe that Jose Mourinho is interested in Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele, and could make a bid in the coming weeks, and Spurs value the Belgian at around £12m, which is what Mourinho is intending to bid for the midfielder.

Dembele has fallen out of favour under current Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, and is becoming a little frustrated with the playing time he is receiving at White Hart Lane. However, many of the first team minutes he has been handed have come in the cup competitions such as the Capital One Cup and the Europa League, with the partnership of Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb very hard to break in the middle of the park.

Spurs Set To Revive Interest In French Midfielder

The Telegraph claim that Spurs are set to reignite their interest in French youngster Adrien Rabiot after the midfielder’s mother and agent requested a move on his behalf.

The 20-year-old is looking for a move to a Premier League club, and The Telegraph report that his mother has said that he wants to play thirty-five games a season.

Now after hearing the news, Tottenham are reportedly looking into making a move for the PSG man, a player who Spurs have been targeting since the January transfer window, but the French club would not let Rabiot leave.

Spurs are now set to reignite their interest after hearing that the player himself wants a move, and are hoping that this will boost their chance of signing the holding midfielder.

The midfielder’s mother has said that Rabiot wants to build and further his career at PSG, but his mother believes that this is not possible despite her son’s wishes and believes his future is in the Premier League, but is his future at Spurs?

Turkish Club Make Approach For Spurs Striker

The Times claim that Turkish club Galatasaray have made a formal approach for Tottenham striker Roberto Soldado.

The Spanish striker has failed to adapt successfully to English football, along with the emergence or Harry Kane and off the field issues in his first season at the club has meant that Roberto Soldado has failed to repay his huge £26m price tag.

After taking a huge knock in confidence during his first season at Spurs, the striker has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs, and with Andre Villas-Boas and Mauricio Pochettino preferring to name just one striker in their starting line-ups, Premier League opportunities have been limited for the Spaniard.

Soldado earns £70,000 a week and is reportedly looking to call it a day in England after failing to rediscover the form that he showed at Valencia just a couple of years ago.

We would all be sad to see Roberto Soldado leave Spurs, but would a move to Galatasaray be the right move for his career?

Tottenham Hotspur Key Games Preview

Tottenham Hotspurs fixtures were released alongside the Premier League sides in full. It’s one of the most exciting parts of the season as fans can pick out games they want to go and watch, the derby games, and the final game of the season, and seeing whether that game is at home or if they will have to wake up in the early hours to support the team.

But for Tottenham, we open our Premier League season with what is easily the biggest game on the first week of the season, with an away trip to Manchester United. Hopefully, we wont repeat our abysmal defeat from last season, and more like we have been in the previous years and snatch all 3 points. In the first month of the season, we have 2 home and 2 away games, with Everton and Leicester being the first 2 home games, which will be one for the fans to look out for.

 

However, the games that fans will be looking for will be the games against Arsenal, West Ham and Chelsea, and we play all 3 in the month of November, with Arsenal away being November 7th, West Ham at home on November 21st and Chelsea at home on November 28th. The reverse fixtures of these games will be Arsenal at home on 5th March, West Ham away on March 1st and a trip to Stamford Bridge on April 30th. Fans will also look to games against Liverpool, Man City and Man United. Man United will obviously be the opening game, with the home fixture being on April 9th. Manchester City home and away will be September 19th and February 13th, and Liverpool will be October 17th and April 2nd.

 

Our last game of the season will be against Newcastle at St. James’ Park, where we have won in the past 2 seasons, and will look to carry on this trend for a 3rd straight season.

Spurs Close In On Burnley Full-Back And Signing Could Be In ‘Next 72 Hours’

The Telegraph report that Spurs are closing in on a deal to bring Burnley right-back Kieran Trippier to the club, and the deal could be completed ‘before the weekend’.

Burnley were relegated from the Premier League back in May, and some of their key assets could be leaving Turf Moor this summer as the team will be transformed with players leaving and arriving in the coming transfer window.

It is believed that Spurs are looking at bringing in some competition for Kyle Walker over the summer, and are looking at loaning out DeAndre Yedlin as he looks to adapt to English football.

It will take a bid of £3.5m to trigger a release clause in the right-back’s contract, and Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Liverpool have all considered moves for Tripier.

The Telegraph add that Spurs are clear favourites and a medical for the full-back could take place in the next couple of days and the deal could be completed by the weekend.

Spurs Set To Reject Sensational Bid For Duo

The Daily Star report that Spurs will reject any approaches that Manchester United will make for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and twenty-one goal Harry Kane.

Recent reports have suggested that Daniel Levy has told Mauricio Pochettino that both Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris will be going nowhere over the summer, despite links with Manchester United.

However, in an attempt to tempt Daniel Levy into selling up, the Red Devils are reportedly going to submit a bid of £70m for the duo, in what they hope will be an offer just too good to turn down.

After struggling to invest wisely the £85m received from the Gareth Bale transfer in the summer of 2013, it is believed that Daniel Levy is now set to keep his prized assets and break a habit of a lifetime.

Lloris has become an integral part of the Spurs team and has provided great solidity behind the defence, and United could make him their primary target should David De Gea leave the club. Harry Kane on the other hand has been working wonders at the other end of the pitch, scoring twenty-one goals in the Premier League last season.

Will Daniel Levy stick to his reported promise, or will United come up with an offer just too good to turn down?

Pochettino Preparing Double Swoop For Old Lady Duo?

According to a report from the print edition of Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in two Juventus players this summer.

Spanish striker Fernando Llorente and Italian centre-back Angelo Ogbonna have been tipped to move to White Hart Lane. The latest story suggests Spurs are keen on bringing in the experienced duo to N17 to add quality and depth to the squad for next season. It’s believed that Spurs are prepared to pay £10million for both players.

The 30-year-old, Llorente would be able to offer Tottenham an effective alternative to Harry Kane as and when required. In total Llorente has scored 138 goals in his club career to date. He excelled the Football World with Bilbao a few years ago, since moving to Juventus 2 years ago he’s struggled to replicate that level of form but he still remains a talented striker and Spurs could do with him.

As for Ogbonna, the 27-year-old centre-back would bring some additional experience to Tottenham’s back-line were he to arrive. It could give Spurs a dilemma though, considering they’ve already signed Kevin Wimmer this summer and with Jan Vertonghen, Federico Fazio and Eric Dier all likely to stay Mauricio Pochettino may not move for yet another centre-back, unless someone is sold.
