Tottenham and Barca battling for Leandro signing

Tottenham and Champions League finalists Barcelona are set to battle it out for the signature of Internacionals Leandro Damiao.



Tottenham and Champions League finalists Barcelona are set to battle it out for the signature of Internacionals Leandro Damiao.

The £13m rated youngster has already hit 16 goals this season and is attracting interest from Juventus, Roma and Benfica.

However, it is Spurs and Barca who have emerged as front runners for the 21 year olds signature.

Spurs will feel they have the upper hand in the race due to the commercial link set-up between the two clubs in 2009.

The likelihood of the signing is raised further due to Leandro’s good friend Sandro plying his trade at White Hart Lane.

Sandro, signed from Internacional last year, will be hoping to convince Leandro his future lies with the North London club.

Manager Harry Redknapp is known to be in the market for two strikers this summer after his current crop failed to fire Spurs to back-to-back top four finishes.

Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe are expected to leave this summer and Spurs have been linked with a host of strikers including Pablo Osvaldo, Gervinho and Didier Drogba.

Should Barca miss out on Leandro, they are expected to firm up their interested in Villarreal’s Giuseppe Rossi with the American born Italian likely to join the Catalan outfit in the coming weeks.

Tottenham to bid £10million for 19-year-old Championship star to solve right-back issues



Tottenham target West Brom right-back Nathan Ferguson

Nathan Ferguson has impressed for West Bromwich Albion as their left-back this season and Tottenham are interested in the 19-year-old, according to the Sun.

The report claims that Mauricio Pochettino wants another option for the right-back position after selling Kieran Trippier in the summer.

The Englishman has done well at Atletico Madrid this summer while Serge Aurier has struggled for form.

Kyle Walker-Peters has struggled with an injury while we have tried Moussa Sissoko and Davinson Sanchez in that position too.

Tottenham’s scouts are raving about the West Brom star and Crystal Palace are also interested in the 19-year-old (h/t Sun).

Spurs could offer £10million for the defender but West Brom want to keep hold of the youngster as they seek promotion (h/t Sun).

However, a move to the Premier League would be tough for Ferguson to resist and the youngster has done well on both sides of the defence.

The youngster has a goal and an assist already this season, and it will be interesting to see how things go.

Tottenham need to make moves in January

The report claims that a January deal is possible if Tottenham submit a decent bid, and we need to add some quality to the side.

Tottenham have struggled this season and the right-back position has been problematic for us.

Pochettino has a great reputation of working with young English talent and Ferguson still needs to develop further.

PSG hope to land out-of-contract Tottenham star in summer despite interest from La Liga giants



PSG interested in landing Eriksen from Real Madrid’s clutches

Paris Saint-Germain want to sign Christian Eriksen from Real Madrid’s noses in the summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The Dane has rejected a new deal with Tottenham and the club want to sell him in January (h/t Daily Mail).

However, Eriksen knows that leaving on a free at the end of the season will allow him to sign a huge deal and wants to move in the summer (h/t Daily Mail).

That would be a blow to Tottenham as we wouldn’t receive any transfer fees for one of the most creative players in the Premier League.

Real Madrid are also keen on the Dane but PSG plan to move for Eriksen in the summer, according to the report.

PSG willing to sell a couple of stars

The Parisians have several options for their midfield and are looking to free up some space for Eriksen to arrive.

Julian Draxler and Leandro Paredes are two players who could be sold in the summer (h/t Daily Mail) and it will be interesting to see how things develop for the French giants.

Tottenham have a replacement for Eriksen in Giovani Lo Celso but the Argentine is yet to start a game for us.

Losing Eriksen would not be a great deal for Spurs, but it seems our hands are tied.

The Dane can negotiate with foreign clubs from January, and it is better that he doesn’t move to another Premier League side.

Former Tottenham goalkeeper wants Spurs to sign this £25m English starlet after his impressive start in PL



Paul Robinson wants Tottenham to sign Tyrone Mings

Former Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson has lavished praise on Aston Villa star Tyrone Mings.

The 26-year-old has looked impressive for the Villans in the defence, and Robinson claims the Englishman should be a target for Mauricio Pochettino as soon as possible (h/t Express).

The former goalkeeper was speaking to Football Insider as the defender also played for England in their win over Bulgaria (h/t Express):

“I like Tyrone Mings at Aston Villa, I think he’s been outstanding.

“I think the way he’s been given his England debut this week is no coincidence to his performances.

“I watched him a lot for Aston Villa last year in the Championship and for whatever reason, it didn’t happen at Bournemouth but he seems to have found a home at Villa.”

Robinson praised Mings’ aerial ability and highlighted that the Englishman was a quality left-footed centre-back.

Mings will not come on the cheap

The defender could be the solution to our issues at the back. We need another quality defender as Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are free agents in the summer.

Mings joined the Villans from Bournemouth for £25m and the Express adds that it would take nearly double of that to entice his current club into selling the defender. Tottenham need to make plans for their defence soon and it will be interesting to see who we can target.

Mings has made a few mistakes at the back this season and needs to improve his game. Tottenham need to make the right transfer moves as we have been burned by some poor additions in the past.

Tottenham want €30m for star but unsure of getting it in January



Tottenham unsure if they will get €30m from Eriksen’s sale in January

Christian Eriksen’s future at Tottenham is far from confirmed as the Dane is a free agent at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old couldn’t seal an exit in the summer and Juventus are interested in the Dane (h/t Calciomercato).

The Italian outlet further claim that five clubs are keen on landing the 27-year-old. Juve want to sign the Dane at the end of the season but could make a move before that (h/t Calciomercato).

Spurs trying to find a solution to the problem

Losing the Dane for free would be a huge blow to the side and the report claims that Spurs have slapped a €30m tag on Eriksen.

However, Tottenham are unsure if they will get that amount and could instead accept a swap deal (h/t Calciomercato). That would be a quality option for Spurs and it will be interesting to see who we could get in January.

Eriksen hasn’t been all that great this season and we could do with a fresh face coming in. Giovani Lo Celso could be the one to replace the Dane, but the Argentine has been injured for most of the season.

Tottenham should see the Argentine and Ryan Sessegnon back in the team soon, and it will be interesting to see how we perform once they are back.
