Wilson Palacios’ proposed move to Napoli could be off after the Italian side baulked at Spurs asking price.

The North London outfit want to recoup as much as the £12m they spent on the Honduran in 2009 as they can.

Napoli appeared to have secured his signature yesterday with a deal expected to be completed by the weekend.

However, there £7m offer is thought to be way below Spurs valuation of the midfielder who has found first team chances limited this season after a succession of knee injuries and the emergence of Sandro.

“Wilson interests us a lot. But negotiations have stalled for now.” Napoli Sporting Director Riccardo Bigon said.

“Tottenham are ready to sell him outright, but they want a lot of money in order to let him go.

“I’ve spoken with his agent as the player is currently on holiday.

“Everything should become clearer in seven to ten days time. Let’s wait and see what happens.”

It is reported that Sevilla are willing to match Tottenham’s valuation for the player and could jump to the front of the queue should negotiations between Spurs and Napoli continue to stall

Serie A giants keeping tabs on Tottenham star who didn’t start the season as first-choice

AC Milan tracking Serge Aurier as summer exit looms

AC Milan are eyeing a replacement for Davide Calabria after some inconsistent seasons, according to Calciomercato.

The Milan giants haven’t been great this season with their city rivals, Inter, fighting Juventus for top spot in the league.

The report claims that Milan are keeping tabs on several right-backs as they look to replace Calabria, with Serge Aurier on the list. The Ivorian has struggled for consistency this season and didn’t start the campaign as the first-choice either.

He did play in our 5-0 win over Red Star Belgrade yesterday, however, the report claims that the 26-year-old can leave in the summer. Milan are also keen on Djibril Sidibe from the Premier League and have targets in France too (h/t Calciomercato).

Aurier’s time with Spurs coming to an end?

It will be interesting to see when Milan make their move for the right-back. A January deal for Aurier might not work given that Tottenham don’t have enough quality cover for the position.

Kyle Walker-Peters is the only senior right-back we have in the team while Juan Foyth can also play in that position.

Moussa Sissoko and Davinson Sanchez have also featured there this season but they haven’t impressed. Aurier has failed to make the right-back spot his own since joining from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Ivorian has been injured several times over the past two seasons, and losing him won’t be much of a problem as long as we bring in a replacement.

Tottenham see Barcelona’s Carles Alena as Christian Eriksen replacement

Tottenham will return in January for Barcelona’s rising star Carles Alena, according to Mundo Deportivo (h/t Daily Star).

The Spaniard broke into the first-team last season but has seen minutes hard to come by this time around.

Alena has only made one La Liga appearance under Ernesto Valverde this season, and the report claims that Spurs wanted to sign him on loan in the summer.

The report adds that Tottenham see Alena as a long-term replacement for Christian Eriksen. The Dane is out of a contract at the end of the season and can leave for free in the summer.

The 27-year-old can also speak with foreign clubs in the winter window ahead of a move at the end of the campaign. However, a move to Real Madrid might not take place.

Valverde’s form a problem for Eriksen

The Sun claims that a move to the Spanish capital is in danger due to Federico Valverde’s form for Real. The Uruguayan midfielder has impressed since returning from a loan spell at Deportivo La Coruna.

Valverde is seen as the successor to Croatian midfielder Luka Modric and Real might be tempted not to splash big on Eriksen and use the Uruguayan more (h/t Sun).

That would leave the Dane with a major dilemma on his hands. Eriksen had spoken about playing for Real ahead of this season.

The 27-year-old can also move in the January window on a cut-price deal and it will be interesting to see what happens with the midfielder in the coming weeks.

Varying reports from Spain highlight Real Madrid’s stance on Christian Eriksen

Christian Eriksen is out of a contract at the end of the season, and Real Madrid seem interested in the Dane.

The midfielder spoke about his desire to play for Los Galacticos before the start of the season but remained at Tottenham. Real seem keen on the 27-year-old but varying reports highlight what their plans are for the Dane.

El Desmarque (h/t BBC) claim that Real will offer Isco and Mariano Diaz in hopes of landing Eriksen.

Isco has struggled for regular game time this season and seems to have lost some form, but he is still one of the best in the league. While Diaz could provide some cover for Harry Kane and hasn’t featured for the Spanish giants this season.

That would be a decent deal for Spurs given that Eriksen is a free agent at the end of the season. However, AS (h/t BBC) reports that Real have to sell some fringe players before moving for the Dane.

Getting a swap deal done would be great for Spurs

Tottenham might not get a lot of money from Eriksen’s January sale given that he is a free agent soon.

A swap deal would be great, however, the players might take time to adjust to our plans.

It will be interesting to see what happens to the Dane, however, we don’t have all the negotiating power given that Eriksen can leave for free at the end of the season.

Tottenham monitoring Adrien Rabiot as Christian Eriksen is expected to leave

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claims that Tottenham are interested in Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot (h/t Calciomercato).

The Frenchman joined Juve on a free transfer this summer but things haven’t worked out for him. The 24-year-old is being watched by Spurs as Christian Eriksen is expected to leave London in the next two transfer windows (h/t Calciomercato).

The Dane is a free agent at the end of the season and it will be interesting to see where he could end up.

Rabiot’s mother has also contacted Barcelona due to her son’s lack of playing time in Turin (h/t Calciomercato).

The Frenchman was one of the most exciting players in Ligue 1 but hasn’t contributed to a goal for Juve. Maurizio Sarri had similar problems with players during his time at Chelsea and Rabiot would be an excellent addition to Tottenham.

A quality player with years ahead of him

The midfielder could take up a deeper role alongside Tanguy Ndombele but he only moved to Juve in the summer and might not come on the cheap.

The 24-year-old has the potential to improve under Mauricio Pochettino and we should try to snap him as Eriksen’s replacement.

Rabiot isn’t as creative as the Dane, but Pochettino would know how to best use the 24-year-old.
