Kevin Wimmer has joined the club in a £4.5 million deal from Cologne. The centre-back flourished in the Bundesliga this year, featuring in their team of the season.
Rumours; DAY 1
First; Our manager has been the topic of conversation:
Football Italia believe Pochettino is on Roma’s shortlist of new managers.
The other candidates include: Unai Emery, Vincenzo Montella and Walter Mazzarri.
Bentaleb’s contract negotiations have stuttered – check out my article for @Vavel for that here- http://www.vavel.com/en/football/premier-league/tottenham-hotspur/498579-champions-league-clubs-interested-as-tottenham-youngsters-contracts-stall.html
My opinions on the Bentaleb story- If Arsenal, PSG AND JUVENTUS are interested, that must show Levy just how good he is and how much he is worth. Pay up Levy!
Jan Vertonghen has told SkySports there is “no chance” of him leaving Tottenham this summer.
Now for an apparent ‘sensational’ bid for Harry Kane.
Manchester United are set to offer a huge £50 million deal for Tottenham youngster and new fan favourite.
Reports suggest that United are willing to put up a cash sum as well as Javier Hernandez, Nani and or Adnan Januzaj into the deal in the hope of persuading Spurs to part with their prized asset.
Spurs are again in for Christian Benteke despite missing out on him a couple of seasons ago.
Tottenham have apparently made the first move for his signature in the hope of fending off Liverpool and Chelsea.
The Belgium would join fellow international team-mates Jan Vertonghen, Nacer Chadli and Mousa Dembele.
Tottenham are leading the race for Crystal Palace star Yannick Bolasie according to the Star on Sunday
Tottenham are reportedly interested in Aston Villa’s Ron Vlaar and Atletico Madrid’s Toby Alderweireld.
The fee for Vlaar is unknown but the fee for Alderweireld is said to set Tottenham back around £14 million.
Adebayor has told Sky Sports that he is happy at Tottenham and denied rumours that he is off to the Turkish league.
He has denied all knowledge of the agent that has said he leaving Spurs for the Turkish league and claims that he is looking forward to next season.
A deal has apparently been done for French striker Anthony Martial of AS Monaco.
Reports in France suggest a deal for Martial has been struck, setting Tottenham back £18.2 million for the 19 year old.
The striker scored 11 goals in 41 appearances this season.
Martial was signed by Monaco from Lyon and has a contract until 2018.
Hugo Lloris has said that he wants to play in the Champions League again, but it sounded like he meant with Tottenham. He also refused to comment on a move to Manchester United.
Hugo has previously stated he will not force a move away from White Hart Lane and is happy to remain at White Hart Lane and pursue Champions League football with them next season.
The Sun believe Liverpool are set to offer Tottenham £10 million for Nabil Bentaleb as they hope to take advantage of his ongoing contract discussions.
I don’t need to tell you what Liverpool fans think of the Sun, another nothing story. Next.
Tottenham have bid rejected for “unsellable” Timo Werner.
According to German media reports, Tottenham have tabled a €10m for Stuttgart forward Timo Werner. VfB desperately want to keep him.
James McCarthy is set to leave Everton and Tottenham are apparently interested – report Goal.
Everton risk losing James McCarthy this summer over broken promises concerning new contract at Goodison.
Spurs are set to offer players plus cash for Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, and Adebayor is the player that is rumoured to be offered.
Pardew is reportedly ready to gamble on Adebayor, and as we all know that could go one of two ways.
Palace value Bolasie at £30 million – so I expect we would still have to stump up £20-25 million.
Lloris has again spoken out about his Champions League ambitions.
“Everyone has Champions League wishes” the Frenchmen admitted. “not just because it is the season of the Euros.”
“It is a goal and personal ambition” he continued. “The level is the highest in Europe so obviously we want to participate and to rub shoulders with the biggest teams in Europe. We work for that everyday.”
Nacer Chadli has spoken about his desire to play with Christian Benteke at Spurs.
Chadli has said that if Benteke leaves Villa that he wishes it is for Spurs, hoping that they make an offer for him.
Chadli said: “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.
“Hopefully he’s going to choose for us.”
The striker who is set to be offered a new deal at Villa Park according to their chief executive.
Tottenham will not pursue a deal for Yannick Bolasie of Crystal Palace or Giannelli Imbula from Marseille.
However, Mauricio Pochettino is keen to pursue Anthony Martial of Monaco despite the French club saying the 19-year-old is not for sale.
Yohan Cabaye’s agents have offered Liverpool and Tottenham the chance to sign the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder.
The report states that both clubs are prioritising other positions first, but may be willing to pursue Cabaye later into the summer transfer window.
With Paulinho, Capoue and Dembele still on Spurs’ book, a deal won’t be struck yet, however if club come in for those players I believe we will be front runners for his signature, if the likes of Crystal Palace, Villa and West Ham don’t snare him first.
Vlad Chiriches is a target for Swiss club FC Basel.
Spurs are thought to be willing to do business at about £7million.
Chiriches has previously been linked with local rivals Arsenal and Italian giants Roma, however after recent displays I wouldn’t expect them to be so keen anymore..
20. Finally an out that isn’t Hugo Lloris.
Younes Kaboul has been linked with a move away with Watford apparently interested.
But there’s a stumbling block, of course. His asking price.
The Mirror believe Tottenham want £10 million for their Captain, which I find ridiculous, however the Guardian think Tottenham want £5 million which is much most respectable, however still quite unlikely.
I think we will get £3/4 million for him, however anything can happen with Levy, I just hope we don’t get stuck with him.
Along with Kaboul, Capoue is linked with a move to Premier League newcomers Watford.
They are said to want to sure up their defensive options and the two Tottenham players top their wishlist.
The final post for this week –
Turkish source Milliyet report that Besiktas and Galatasary are targeting Tottenham Captain Younes Kaboul.
AS report that Manchester United are now in negotiations with Jan Oblak after giving up on pursuing Hugo Lloris.
Levy has told all clubs that Kane and Lloris are not for sale during this transfer window, with lots of interest in both players.
Juventus have offered Tottenham the chance offload £30 million signing Erik Lamela this summer, according to reports in Italy.
Massimiliano Allegri is confident he can convince the 23-year-old to return to Serie A, where he previously flourished with Roma.
