Spurs Plot Sensational Last Gasp Premier League Striker Swoop

Spurs are ready to hijack Chelsea’s deadline day move for Swansea striker Fernando Llorente as they prepare to spring to life in the summer transfer window. 

Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino have been disappointingly inactive this summer and look as if they are leaving it late to secure key deals in what is a very important season for the Lilywhites at the National stadium.

Spurs have brought three new players in through the door, defender Davinson Sanchez for a club record fee of £42m, Southampton goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga and another defender in youngster Juan Foyth. They look look adding a fourth signing early on in deadline day in PSG’s Serge Aurier after he was granted a work permit yesterday.

Despite making three signings, close to making a fourth, none of those have strengthened the attacking areas of the squad. The likes of Christian Eriksen and Heung-min Son have produced fairly uninspiring performances this season, and highlights the need for them to be pushed. The deadline day signing of Demarai Gray, Angel Di Maria or even Ross Barkley might just help to do this.

It has emerged in the last couple of days that Vincent Janssen’s time at Tottenham could well be coming to a premature end after the striker admitted that he was unhappy with his situation at Spurs. He has become frustrated with the lack of playing time that he has been getting and could look for a move elsewhere to get more playing time.

With Stoke and West Brom both interested, Spurs would need to get a replacement in before the transfer window shuts at 11pm tonight, and are considering a last gasp move for Swansea striker Fernando Llorente. Chelsea have been monitoring the striker all summer and have been in pole position to sign the front man for some time.

However, the Mirror report that Tottenham are preparing to ghost in and beat their London rivals to the signature of Llorente, with Vincent Janssen underperforming and not providing sufficient backup for Harry Kane. In the same report, it states that Swansea will not sell Llorente until they have secured the deal that will see Wilfred Bony return to the Liberty Stadium.

4 More Signings That Tottenham Could Complete On Deadline Day

Juan Foyth has completed his much-anticipated move to Tottenham Hotspur, but that is not where Tottenham’s transfer activity is set to end. There are strong reports linking Spurs with moves for four more players. In this article we take a look at the latest news surrounding each player.

1 – Serge Aurier

This is all but confirmed. Spurs have been on the lookout for a new right-back ever since selling Kyle Walker to Manchester City for £50m, and it looks like the Lilywhites have finally got their man and the move is ‘imminent’ according to Sky Sports.

The only factor stopping this move going through was the lack of work permit for Aurier. Doubt was cast over whether he would receive a work permit after he received a suspended sentence for assault on a police officer.

However, this now seems to have no effect on the right-back’s intended move to Tottenham Hotspur after he posted a tweet yesterday that convinced Spurs fans that he will be joining the club for a fee of around £23m. All that remains is for the transfer to be announced by the two clubs, and we can expect that fairly early on in deadline day.

One man who will be far from pleased with the signing is Kieran Trippier. He very much expected to become first choice right-back after the departure of Kyle Walker, but this could well change with the arrival of Aurier from PSG.

3 Players That Could Leave Tottenham On Transfer Deadline Day

While the main focus tomorrow on deadline day will be the players Tottenham will bring into the squad, here are three players that could follow Kevin Wimmer out the exit door on transfer deadline day. 

1) Vincent Janssen

The Dutchman didn’t enjoy the best of starts to life in the Premier League and with first team chances very few and far between for Janssen, he could seek a deadline day move away.

The striker has admitted he is unhappy with his situation at Spurs and wants more playing time under manager Mauricio Pochettino to try and prove his worth. However, if the prolific scoring of Harry Kane begins to kick in anytime soon, he chances might by hard to come by.

You get the feeling that what Janssen needs to succeed is a strong run of games, which can be hard to get when you are second choice to a striker like Harry Kane. With Janssen sitting frustrated on the bench and with many holding little confidence in him if Kane were to get injured, a move away might be best for both parties.

The Sun report that Stoke and West Brom have both shown an interest in Janssen. If a move goes through, could it trigger a last minute attempt to buy Divock Origi from Liverpool?

4 Players That Could Arrive At Tottenham Before The Transfer Window Slams Shut

Spurs have picked up one win, one draw and one defeat in their three opening Premier League games, and Mauricio Pochettino is looking for some last minute additions to his squad for the summer transfer window slams shut. Here is who could sign for Spurs in the next couple of days. 

1) Serge Aurier

Ever since Kyle Walker left for Pep Guardolia’s Manchester City, Spurs have been on the lookout for a replacement right-back.

With Kyle Walker-Peters too young to be given such responsibility (his performance against Newcastle may counter-argue this) and Kieran Trippier’s performance against Burnley nothing short of disastrous, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to get a new right-back through the door.

The deal for PSG’s Serge Aurier appears to be very close. According to Sky Sources, a £23m bid for Aurier has been accepted and everything seems to be in place for the deal to be completed except the player is yet to receive a UK work visa.

The London Evening Standard report that Aurier’s chances of getting a work permit have received a knock with the revlation that the player assaulted a police officer last year. Spurs were confident of hearing a decision today (Tuesday), but a decision might be delayed. Either way, the clock is ticking to get a new right-back in and Aurier looks to most likely player to join Spurs before the window closes on Thursday.

3 More Transfers Spurs Look Set To Complete After Aurier

With Tottenham set to confirm the signing of Serge Aurier, there looks to be more business to be done by Pochettino’s men in the final week of the window. In this article we take a look at three more transfers that could happen.

1 – Michel Vorm to Crystal Palace

So according to Sky Sports, Crystal Palace are trying to lure Vorm to the club, with the offer of first team football on the table. Vorm is just a back up to Lloris at Tottenham so if Palace were to table a reasonable bid it would be hard for the club to stand in his way.

3 More New Signings Set To Follow Sanchez To Tottenham Imminently

Tottenham have finally spent some money this summer after confirming the record signing of Davinson Sanchez from Ajax. It won’t end there it seems, with the club now reportedly closing in on a further three signings. In this article we take a look at the three names in question…

1 – Serge Aurier

It’s close! L’Equipe are reporting that Tottenham are closing in on a €25million agreement with PSG for Serge Aurier. The Ivorian full back has looked set to leave the French club all summer, but with the likes of Manchester United reportedly interested in his signature, it looked unlikely, until now, that he would be heading to Spurs. But at €25million, the 24-year-old represents good value for Tottenham, especially if he can keep his head right.

Aurier has been linked with Spurs all summer and has always been earmarked as a replacement for Walker if he did leave – so why has it taken so long for Tottenham to seal this one off? Aurier is a perfect fit to play as a wing back and with the type of signings Pochettino is making this summer, I can see him opting with a three at the back formation with wing backs more often than not this season.

Spurs Aim To Complete Deals For These 3 Defenders Before The Transfer Deadline

Tottenham’s ridiculously quiet transfer window is starting to heat up. There is a lot of things happening on a defensive front at the moment, and whilst the fans may be dreaming of an attacking signing, these defensive changes may provide the platform for the team to win the title this season.

1 – Davinson Sanchez

The 21-year-old defender is very highly rated in Europe and has had several top clubs chasing him for the past couple of years. If Tottenham manage to tie up this signing it would be seen as a coup and with the current climate in this market, the price could well represent good value in the future. Many feel that we have nabbed Ajax’s best player from them in this £42m deal and he is just the type of player that fits the Pochettino criteria. He is hard-working, young and has bags of potential. We could see Sanchez really grow and develop as a player over the next couple of seasons into one of the best centre-backs in world football.

Tottenham have recently announced that a fee has been agreed with Ajax and the deal will now be completed subject to a medical and a work permit. This one is likely to be officially announced on Monday next week, as weekend announcements are rare.

Does The Signing Of Sanchez Tell Us Pochettino’s Plan For Tottenham This Season?

Finally, Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement for their first signing of the summer transfer window. Subject to a medical and work permit, Davinson Sanchez will be a Spurs player for a fee of around £42m, a club record. 

What does this signing tell us about Pochettino’s plan for Spurs this season? It tells us that Mauricio Pochettino wants to make Spurs a really hard team to beat. The Lilywhites had the best defensive record in the Premier League last season, but the Argentine boss is clearly keen to strengthen this area and improve on the 26 goals that Spurs conceded last term.

I know the transfer market has spiralled out of control this summer, but to spend £42m on a player, you would expect him to be a regular starter at a club. With this in mind, I would imagine Spurs will play a three at the back system this season with wing-backs. Given the record that Vertonghen and Alderweireld had at the back last season it would seem relatively harsh to drop either of them.

We have seen the three at the back system work for a couple of Premier League teams last season. Chelsea were the main team to benefit from a system that Antonio Conte switched to in September following a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal. Mauricio Pochettino has flirted with the system, switching between three and four at the back systems. The signing of Sanchez might just tell us which system the manager is leaning towards.

Furthermore, a three at the back system allows wing-backs to really push on while leaving sufficient cover at the back to defend on what is a very big Wembley pitch. I feel this is the system that Pochettino will look to play on a regular basis this season with Vertonghen, Alderweireld and Sanchez at the heart of the defence. Spurs could prove to be a very difficult team to break down.

Many feel that we have nabbed Ajax’s best player from them in this £42m deal and he is just the type of player that fits the Pochettino criteria. He is hard-working, young and has bags of potential. We could see Sanchez really grow and develop as a player over the next couple of seasons into one of the best centre-backs in world football.

It will be interesting to see how much game time Sanchez will get this season and what formation Pochettino will play to incorporate him.

Is Sanchez a good signing for Tottenham? 

Tottenham In Advanced Talks To Complete 3 New Signings

Tottenham have had a very quiet transfer window but it looks like that is all about to change with the latest reports suggest that Pochettino’s men are closing in on not one, not two, but three new additions!

It might be hard to believe after sitting through the whole summer and seeing no progress, but the stories do come from reputable sources. In this article we take a look at who it is being linked and how they would fit in.

1 – Davinson Sanchez

The young Ajax defender is highly rated across Europe and Pochettino must be a fan as it seems he may be willing to break the clubs transfer record to bring him in. According to The Guardian, Spurs have opened talks at around £25million, though Ajax are hoping to raise closer to £35million.

The 21-year-old defender is very highly rated in Europe and has had several top clubs chasing him for the past couple of years. If Tottenham manage to tie up this signing it would be seen as a coup and with the current climate in this market, the price could well represent good value in the future.

‘Sol Campbell Vol. 2’ Spurs Fans Lash Out At Danny Rose Following Brutally Honest Interview

Just three days before Spurs travel to Newcastle in their Premier League season opener, Danny Rose has had an exclusive interview with the Sun, and it has to be said, he has not held back.

Rose spoke to The Sun and commented on next season and where he will play his football in the future. Whilst insisting that Spurs cannot start to blame the pitch or atmosphere at Wembley next season if things don’t go to plan, Spurs fans would have been a little taken aback to read that Rose wants to play his football up north sometime in the future. It must be stressed he said he would like to do this at some point in his career, not immediately.

If you believe various media reports, he could be linking up with Jose Mourinho at any moment this summer. Although this was not explicitly said by Rose, the left-back could well be fishing for a move to Mourinho’s Red Devils after he also talked about the wage structure at Tottenham.

Rose hasn’t played for Spurs since the 0-0 draw with Sunderland back in January and says he had a lot of time to think things over and now insists he is underpaid. This may be true compared to the likes of Lingard at Manchester United who is paid £100,000-per-week when you learn that Rose is on £30,000-per-week. However, to go public on such an issue will not go down well with chairman Daniel Levy or manager Mauricio Pochettino. If one thing is for certain, it hasn’t gone down well with Spurs fans. Here is how they reacted on Twitter.

Later on in the interview, Rose urged Tottenham to sign some stars who he did not have to Google to find out who they were. We are pretty sure he had to Google Dele Alli before he came to Spurs and it has been pointed out that many fans had to Google Rose when he signed for Spurs.

Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Rose and it will be very interesting to see if Rose stays beyond this summer at Spurs. He might be out of action until September with injury so we are sure that Ben Davies will start the season opener at Newcastle on Sunday.

Will Rose stay at Spurs after the summer transfer window slams shut?

Fancy Tottenham to stutter on the opening day and for the rest of the season with or without Rose? If so, get on these two offers from SportNation.bet! Moneyback on Arsenal if Spurs get beaten on Sunday and odds of 20/1 for Liverpool to lift the Premier League trophy.
