Spurs in for Adebayor

Tottenham are set to make a loan move for Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Tottenham are set to make a loan move for Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

City are desperate to offload the former Arsenal star and left the Togolese striker out of the squad for the clubs tour of America.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp is desperate to agree a deal for the 27-year-old but any transfer is dependant on the players wage demands.

City are believed to want £14m for Adebayor but his £175,000-a-week wages may prove to be a stumbling block in any deal.

The North London outfit are interested in a one-year loan deal with an option to buy but are only willing to pay up to £75,000-a-week of the players wages.

They are hoping City will fund the remaining £100,000-a-week and are looking to sweeten the deal by offering a loan fee in order to secure his services.

Real Madrid, with whom Adebayor spent the latter half of the season on loan, are said to be monitoring developments but are unwilling to meet the players transfer value or weekly wages.

It could leave City with a major dilemma on their hands as they look to try and move Adebayor on.

Redknapp would also have no qualms about bringing an ex-Arsenal player to White Hart Lane having bought Williams Gallas to the club last summer.

Tottenham target’s manager shoots down rumours of move for £20m star

Nathan Ake

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has confirmed that no approach has been made by Tottenham for highly-rated defender Nathan Ake, according to Sky Sports.

The Dutchman has been linked with Tottenham in recent times and Sky Sports has claimed that we’re closely scouting some defensive recruitments.

Ake has been impressive for Bournemouth this season after joining them from Chelsea in 2017 for a fee of £20m.

When asked about the transfer links, Eddie Howe said,

“I think that’s a compliment to Nathan and how he’s played since he signed for us permanently.”

“He’s been a model of consistency. He picked up all the player awards that he did at the end of last season and he’s carried that form into this [season].”

“[There has been] nothing from our side, where it comes from I don’t know. It’s inevitable [to be linked] when the team is doing well people will naturally highlight our players, potential players who can go on and play at a higher level.

Furthermore, Howe also added that the speculation won’t affect the youngster. He also claimed that the 23-year-old was an important part of the club’s plans.

In my opinion, this isn’t a huge blow for us. Ake has been terrific for Bournemouth but whether or not he is a player capable of playing for such a big club as ours is debatable.

Chelsea have sold numerous youngsters in the past and Ake is one of them but there is a reason they’ve sold him. With all due respect to Nathan Ake, we should sign a top-class, established defender to deal with departures if any.

If we are to challenge for top honours, we must look at players bigger than Nathan Ake in terms of quality and experience.

Tottenham interested in £44m January move for Barcelona starlet

Published

on

Tottenham are interested in a £44m move for Barcelona’s Brazilian winger Malcom, according to Sport (h/t Daily Mail). Spurs had an inactive summer window and it looks like we might go big in January.

Malcom joined Barcelona at the start of the season but has featured just twice for the Catalan giants. He has played 25 minutes for the Blaugrana this season, with the Brazilian being unable to break into a playing XI featuring the likes of Ousmane Dembele, Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho.

The winger had a sensational season in the Ligue 1 before moving to the La Liga, scoring 12 goals and providing 7 assists in 35 league appearances. He is surely a quality player whose potential is not being utilized in Spain.

Considering the quality in our squad and also the 21-year-old Barca winger’s talent, it could be a perfect match. Malcom would add some incredible depth to our squad and Pochettino must make a move in January.

Though £44m seems steep, it could be a gamble worth taking as the young star has all the tools required to take the Premier League by storm with more game time.

Whether or not Barcelona would let go of a player they signed just a few months back remains to be seen but this is a move we must make to bolster our attacking reinforcements in January.

Tottenham interested in signing 22-year-old Serie A ace as possible replacement for Toby Alderweireld

Joachim Andersen

Premium Sport (h/t Calciomercato) claims that Tottenham have found a Toby Alderweireld replacement in Joachim Andersen.

The 22-year-old Sampdoria defender has eight Serie A appearances this season and has helped the side to fifth place in the table.

The report claims that Alderweireld has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Manchester United. The Dane joined the Serie A side from FC Twente last season for a fee of €4million (h/t Calciomercato).

The report adds that Juventus and Inter Milan are interested in the 22-year-old, and the Milan club has a history of signing players from Sampdoria.

Milan Skriniar joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2017 and has become one of the best defenders in the league. The report further claims that Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero wants at least €30million for the defender.

Toby Alderweireld

Tottenham have a problem with Alderweireld as the report claims his contract is up in 2019 and could leave for free if terms are not agreed on a new deal.

The Belgian is one of the best defenders in the Premier League and losing him would be a big blow. Spurs have a great partnership between Jan Vertonghen and Alderweireld and we must look to keep the pair for as long as possible.

Andersen could be a decent option for Spurs should we sign him on the cheap. Tottenham have Davinson Sanchez as the other defender fighting for a starting spot in the heart of the defence currently and Andersen would be a good choice.
