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.

Nacer Chadli Wants Belgian Striker To Join Spurs

Recent reports have suggested that Tottenham will make a move or have made a move for Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, and midfielder Nacer Chadli is hoping that the star will join Spurs.

It has also been reported that Chelsea are interested in the striker who netted thirteen times in the Premier League last season, and it could take a bid of £32.5m to take the Belgian away from Aston Villa.

Should both clubs come in with a bid of the same offer, it is possible that Benteke could be left with a choice to make, Chelsea or Spurs, and Nacer Chadli is hoping that Benteke would choose Spurs over Chelsea should it come to it.

The midfielder who has been in a good bit of form this season is hoping that the striker will be coming in at White Hart Lane this summer, and may have a little chat with him on international duty.

“I hope it’s going to happen, but first they have to attract him and there are a lot of clubs who want him – and Christian has to make his choice.”

Eden Hazard has already urged the striker to join Chelsea, but Nacer Chadli will have his fingers crossed in the hope that Benteke will ignore Hazard’s advice.

Midfielder Slams Exit Rumours And Feels Right At Home At Spurs

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen has said that he has absolutely no intention of leaving Spurs this summer despite rumours linking the creative midfielder with a White Hart Lane exit.

Eriksen has been previously linked with a move to Old Trafford with Manchester United, and these rumours have now been put to bed with the Dane saying that he will not move away this summer.

Although the former Ajax man has been somewhat inconsistent over the course of last season, he has come up with moments of magic at crucial times, Hull away, Swansea away and Sheffield United away to name a few.

The Danish international has earned a reputation for scoring goals in the final five minutes of games, and the news that the midfielder will be staying at Spurs will be greeted with a good reaction for sure. Eriksen has scored twelve goals this season, and is a very valuable asset to Spurs.

“I feel right at home at Tottenham. I haven’t thought about leaving yet.

“I still have three years on my current deal so I’m not in a big rush to leave the club.”

Pochettino Interested In Making Move For Young Bayern Munich Wonderkid

Reports coming from the Metro suggest that Tottenham will make a move for Bayern Munich star Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the upcoming summer transfer window.

It has been reported that the nineteen-year-old, who has just returned from a loan spell at Augsburg, has become a little frustrated with the lack of playing time he has received at the club, and number of chances he is likely to get next season with the German champions.

It could be a season of change at Tottenham yet again as Mauricio Pochettino prepares for the summer window after being able to assess the squad at Spurs for a whole season, and now has a good idea on what areas he needs to strengthen.

It has become clear that Pochettino plans to bring young players through the youth system, but if these rumours appear to be accurate, then it would seem that the Argentine head coach is not afraid of bringing young players in from elsewhere.

The midfield may go through yet another season of change, and we can only assume that Nabil Bentaleb will agree a new contract and stay alongside Ryan Mason, but Pochettino will need to invest in depth, and will this Bayern Munich wonderkid be the answer to his prayers?

Spurs Weighing Up Bid For Premier League Striking Star

The Sun believe that Tottenham will make their move for Christian Benteke in the very near future, and could be the first to make a bid for the Belgian striker.

Reports suggest that Spurs could make a £20m bid for the striker, despite Tim Sherwood cklearly stating that it would take a bid of £32.5m to trigger the Belgian’s release clause in his contract.

Benteke wants European football next season, narrowing his options to three clubs, Chelsea, Liverpool and indeed Tottenham, who all will take part in either the Champions League or the Europa League.

Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to strengthen his strike force this summer, and despite Harry Kane scoring 21 Premier League goals this season, Pochettino will be looking to add depth up front with both Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado both misfiring in recent times.

Chelsea and Liverpool are also interested, so if Spurs want to sign the striker, then they will have to act fast for sure.

Emmanuel Adebayor Intends To Stay With Spurs

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has taken to Twitter to announce that his agent has in fact not held any discussions with him regarding a move to Turkey, and he will stay be staying at Spurs.

Despite the front man falling out of favour not only with Mauricio Pochettino, but it seems with the fans as well after being booed a couple of times over the course of the season.

The Togo international has had more than his fair share of family issues, and has been granted compassionate leave a few times this term to try and resolve them.

Adebayor has now taken to Twitter to say that he looks forward to the next season with Spurs, putting to bed any rumours that he will join a Turkish club this summer, or West Ham for that matter.

It seems that the player himself wants to stay at the club, but does Mauricio Pochettino want him to stay? Only time will tell.

Spurs Join Race For Netherlands International

London24 claim that Tottenham have joined the race to sign Aston Villa central defender Ron Vlarr from Aston Villa upon the Belgian’s contract expiry.

Tim Sherwood is braced to lose some of his key players this summer with bids set to come flying in from a whole host of clubs for Christian Benteke, Tom Cleverley has agreed to join Everton, and Ron Vlaar could be heading out the exit door in a few weeks.

After not signing a new contract with Villa, Ron Vlaar could leave on a free transfer unless Tim Sherwood can agree a new deal with the defender.

Manchester United and Spurs are believed to be the front runners in the race for the centre-back, and negotiations can begin with player and agent right now.

Spurs have already signed centre-half Kevin Wimmer for £4.2m, and if these rumours have any truth to them, then it would seem that Mauricio Pochettino is keen to strengthen the defensive unit further.

Tottenham To Battle With Two Other Clubs For Young Right-Back

The Daily Mail report that Tottenham will face competition from at least two other Premier League clubs in their pursuit to sign young Burnley right-back Kieran Trippier.

Aston Villa and Liverpool are also reportedly interested in the young star, and both are sizing up a bid for the right-back, who has a release clause in his contract believed to be £3.5m.

Trippier has had a successful debut season in the Premier League and has been linked with a move away from the club following Burnley’s relegation to the Championship.

Tim Sherwood’s transfer strategy this summer appears to be bringing in young English talent, and Trippier falls under this category, and could be standing in Mauricio Pochettino’s way of signing the 24-year-old.

Pochettino is a huge admirer of the right-back, and will make a summer bid and trigger his release clause, but will he beat Liverpool and Aston Villa to his signature?

Benjamin Stambouli Rules Out Move To France

Spurs midfielder Benjamin Stambouli has ruled out a move back to France in the coming summer transfer window in his latest comments.

Stambouli has struggled to nail down a first team spot in the starting eleven under Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino, and despite reports linking him with a move back to France, the midfielder has said that these reports in fact have no truth to them at all.

The holding midfielder since signing for Spurs last year has had to battle for a starting place with young starts Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason, who have formed a strong partnership in the middle of the park.

However, Stambouli is still determined to be successful at Spurs, and has rubbished recent reports linking him with a move to Marseille.

“I am aware of what is being said, and I think, no, I won’t be coming back to France. I am thinking about getting a bit more game time in England. I choose England for lots of reason, and so I will stay. It is there that I want to succeed. Maybe one day I will return to France. But today, my head is here. “I have a month of holidays to recharge. I will see what I do. But, if there is something, it will be in England. My priority is to succeed at a Premier League club.”

Spurs Chase Crystal Palace Star

According to The Sun, Tottenham are preparing a bid for Crystal Palace star Yannick Bolasie, and it could include a player should a cash-only bid fails.

Bolasie is a wanted man after a great season in a Crystal Palace shirt, netting five goals in 41 appearances, and assisting many more as the Eagles secured a top-ten finish under Alan Pardew.

The DR Congo international has been valued at around £20m, but Spurs will be hoping that they can get the deal done for much less than the quoted fee.

Should a cash-only bid fail, then it has been reported that Palace are interested in Spurs winger Andros Townsend, and he could be offered in an attempt to bring Bolasie to White Hart Lane.

It has been a difficult season for Andros Townsend, after being preferred to Erik Lamela early on in the season, the England international has been dropped, and now the Argentine has taken his place. A move for Townsend in the summer would be no surprise to most.
