Tottenham have reportedly opened talks with Roma over a move for £15m rated Mirko Vucinic.

The 27-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the Italian club following the arrivals of Bojan from Barcelona and former River Plate wonderkid Erik Lamela.

Vucinic has been attracing interested from Blackburn Rover, Bayern Munich and Juventus in recent weeks but it is Spurs who lead the race for the Montenegrin international.

The Romas striker has reportedly fallen out with fans of the Italian side and is said to be keen on a move to Spurs.

However, the main stumbling block appears to be the fee with the North London outfit not keen on matching Roma’s valuation of £17.5m, instead hoping to negotiate it down to £15m.

With Spurs currently in South Africa for their pre-season tour, chairman Daniel Levy has been in discussions with the Italian capital side over the last 48 hours hoping that a deal could be in place by the time the team arrives back in London.

“Vucinic is an extremely talented player and a big improvement on what we’ve got, so an approach has been made to see if a deal can be done,” a Tottenham insider said

“He is versatile, skilful, he scores goals and he can play either on his own up front or with a partner – so he suits our needs.”

However, worries are beginning to surface about the players’ tempermant after the former Lecce star was criticised for his poor form and body language.

“Roma want it decided quickly one way or the other so Harry will have to decide whether he wants to push through with it to the end. There are questions about his attitude and poor form last season, but Harry knows how to get the best out of a confidence player,” the Spurs insider added.

Redknapp still would like to add another striker to the ranks even if a deal is reach to bring Vucinic to White Hart Lane.

However, Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi won’t be moving to Spurs after reports suggested that Juventus had agreed a £26.4m fee for the Italian international.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.

David Neres

Tottenham are interested in signing Ajax youngster David Neres in the winter window, according to the Express.

The 21-year-old has been in fine form for the Dutch side and scored 14 times and provided 11 assists in the league last season.

Neres prefers to play as a right-winger but has played as an attacking midfielder too. The Brazilian is rated at close to £45million (h/t Express) and is set to leave the club, as per the report.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund have all watched the 21-year-old this season, as per the Express.

Tottenham have a history of doing well with youngsters under Mauricio Pochettino. Furthermore, we have signed a number of players from Ajax in recent years.

Davinson Sanchez, Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen have been brilliant for us since joining from the Dutch giants.

Neres could provide us with a lot of quality down the right and cover for our attackers. Moving to Spurs will help him grow and develop under one of the best managers in the world. However, it will be interesting to see if we are willing to stump up a huge amount for the talent.

Bayern Munich eyeing move for £18m Tottenham attacker

Published

Calciomercato (h/t Sun) claims Bayern Munich are interested in the services of Son Heung-min after the South Korean evaded military service.

The 26-year-old, who joined Tottenham for a fee of £18m, won gold in the Asian Games with his country recently, meaning he need not enrol for military duty.

The Tottenham star has rejoined us and even played few minutes in the 2-1 loss against Liverpool.

Son has been one of our most consistent players since joining from Bayer Leverkusen. The report claims Bayern need to replace their ageing wide men with someone younger.

Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben are in their 30s and the report adds that Munich’s head scouts have previously worked at Bayer Leverkusen and are familiar with Son’s representatives.

The report further adds that despite the interest from Bayern, Tottenham do not want to sell Son.

Son will be an important player for us this season since we haven’t started all that brightly. The South Korean missed the loss against Watford but had a decent cameo against Liverpool.

The 26-year-old should have won a penalty at the death against the Reds and there is no doubt he will be a regular for our Champions League journey as well.

Tottenham didn’t buy any players in the summer and hence, selling any of our first-teamers should be out of the question.
