Spurs Look For Win-Win Situation In Pursuit Of Toffees Midfielder

The Daily Mail claim that Tottenham are keen on signing Everton midfielder James McCarthy, and they could use Aaron Lennon as part of any potential deal.

McCarthy is reportedly becoming frustrated at Everton, after the club have so far failed to approach him regarding a new and improved contract, which is exactly what the player wants, and Spurs are ready to pounce, and want to launch a bid in the coming weeks.

The Mail report that Morgan Schneiderlin was Spurs’ primary target, but now the Frenchman seems to be heading to Manchester United, McCarthy is now Tottenham’s preferred choice.

Aaron Lennon could be involved in a deal that would see McCarthy move to Spurs and Lennon move the other way, making his loan move permanent after impressing for Everton in his loan spell last season. The Mail also add that Younes Kaboul may be involved in a surprising deal.

This would of course be a win-win deal for Spurs and potentially Everton. The Toffees would get the player they want and a frustrated player sold, whilst Tottenham would get a surplus-to-requirements player off their books for good.

McCarthy still has three years left on his contract, and Everton are keen to keep hold of the midfielder, but Levy is ready to make a ‘substantial’ bid, but know their limits and do not want to end up paying too much.

Daniel Levy Set To Get Alderweireld Negotiations Moving In The Right Direction

The London Evening Standard report that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is set to get transfer negotiations for the transfer of Toby Alderweireld underway this week, and is set to fly out to Madrid to get things moving in the right direction.

Tottenham are keen to beat the likes of Southampton to the defender’s signature, and Daniel Levy is keen to do this, hence him flying out to Madrid later this week.

The Belgian has just returned from a loan spell at Southampton, and the Saints are keen to take the defender on a permanent deal, but a move to Spurs is more desirable for the player reports suggest with Head of Recruitment Paul Mitchell being very keen on the idea.

Alderweireld could cost the Lilywhites around £7m-£10m, but a get-out clause Alderweireld’s loan deal from last season reportedly states that Atletico Madrid will sell the defender to the Saints for £7m or they pay them £1.5m for the opportunity to sell him to somebody else. So this price could be hiked up another £1.5m to cover this fee.

Spurs Still Keen On Villa Star Despite Reports Stating He Will Reject Any Move To The Club

Tottenham are set to up the ante in the race to sign Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, in an attempt to beat the likes of Liverpool to the Belgian’s signature.

The Mirror report that Spurs could chuck Emmanuel Adebayor into a potential deal with the club desperately looking to offload the striker, despite Adebayor’s intentions of staying in North London.

Spurs are still set to make move for the striker, amid reports that Benteke will reject any move to Spurs, even if a fee is agreed between the two clubs, whether these reports are true remains to be seen.

Tim Sherwood already knows the secret of how to get Emmanuel Adebayor back on form, after we saw a different Adebayor in the second half of the 2013/14 when Sherwood was in charge at Tottenham.

Benteke not being keen on the move is not the only spanner in the works for this potential move, but Adebayor’s colossal £100,000-per-week wages could be a problem for Villa, but Spurs reportedly could pay a percentage of his salary should the striker move to another club later this summer.

Tottenham Bid For Monaco Ace Turned Down

Earlier in the day, Get French Football revealed that Tottenham had a bid turned down for Monaco winger Yannick Ferraria Carrasco for around a reported £10 million.

For weeks, Tottenham have been chasing Monaco striker Anthony Martial, but it appears that the club are looking at others players for Monaco, with Carrasco being a new target. Dubbed the “New Cristiano Ronaldo”, Carrasco has been on good form this season in Ligue 1 and has been on the radar for many others top clubs in Europe.

 

Despite the bid, Monaco turned down the offer from Tottenham, and has demanded 25 Million Euros for Carrasco, similarly to what happened with Tottenham and Anthony Martial, so Spurs could be in for a double move if they play their cards just right.

 

The Portuguese attacker showed his lighting pace and attacking prowess in the Champions League against Arsenal, by scoring a goal late on, and making a huge impact, so its safe to say that Carrasco has already provided Spurs fans with a fair amount of joy. But it is down to Daniel Levy to provide the funds for these moves for the club.

 

 

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?

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.
