Tottenham Hotspur have long been linked with Galatasaray winger Bruma and the latest report from Turkish Newspaper Sabah confirms that Spurs have agreed on a €15million (£12.7million) deal to sign the Portuguese winger.

Bruma is considered as one of the top most talents in European football and has grown in stature in the past few years. He is now 22 and is quickly growing into one of the hottest wingers among the current generation of stars. He initially emerged as a wonder kid from Sporting Lisbon, before moving to Galatasaray in 2013.

Since signing for Galatasaray, he has scored 4 goals and 12 assists in 48 games for the club and has had loan spells with Gaziantepspor and Real Sociedad.

He won the Silver shoe award in 2013 U-20 FIFA World Cup and has also won the Segunda Liga Breakthrough Player of the Year award for the 2012-13 season. That is when he rose to prominence and has always been viewed as one of the most talented youngsters around.

This season, Galatasaray decided to keep hold of the winger and hence, he has featured 30 times for the Turkish club. He has scored 8 goals and has assisted 8 as well, after playing for a total of 2585 minutes across all competitions.

His exploits with Galatasaray have certainly attracted interest from all over Europe and it seems like Tottenham are one of the suitors too. It was claimed that Tottenham have completed a deal for the Portuguese starlet but Gala were quick to refute those claims and have said that there has been no contact from any of the clubs regarding a move for the player. Galatasaray have released a statement on their official website denying the story about Bruma moving to Tottenham.

Here is the translated quote from Galatasaray’s official website;

“Today in Sabah Newspaper, our professional footballer Bruma wants a 100% raise as a condition to make a new contract with our club and this request was rejected by our Board of Directors and a notice was sent to our player that the transfer proposal from English Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur was taken into consideration.”

“In this news that is not really interesting, there is no official offer to reach us, just as there is no secret agreement for the price of the club that has been named.”

Spurs have been linked with a lot of wingers, with one another prominent name being Wilfried Zaha. Tottenham’s struggle for quality in the wide areas has been seen quite clearly this season and hence, they are believed to be on the hunt for a top quality pacey young winger like Bruma and Zaha.

Only if Galatasaray are releasing a statement just to keep the deal as secretive as possible, then Tottenham fans can get ready to witness one of the most talented youngsters in Europe don the Whites of North London.

“The season is saved”, “This is the signing you make?” – Some Spurs fans unhappy with latest deal by club

Published

on

Tottenham haven’t done all that well in recent games with three losses on the spin. The Premier League loss against Liverpool was tough to take but the 2-1 defeat at Inter Milan was even worse.

We were leading till the 85th minute before Mauro Icardi and Matias Vecino got the goals at San Siro.

Tottenham bounced back with a win against Brighton & Hove Albion but prior to that, the team had time to pose for a new range of apparel from Hugo Boss.

A post from the Spurs Twitter account revealed that our first-team squad would be sporting suits from the company from the ‘Create Your Look’ line.

Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen, Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and a host of other players and staff were pictured in the dapper suits.

It isn’t a surprise that teams are being sponsored by brands but this deal does come a little late, given that our season is well over a month in.

Some fans, however, were upset with the deal and here are some of those reactions from Twitter.

Lamela stars: Player ratings from Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion

Published

on

Tottenham got back to winning ways after three successive defeats, thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela.

Glenn Murray handled the ball late in the first half which allowed Kane to score from the spot. The home team came at us with all they had in the second half and Paulo Gazzaniga pulled off a great save before Danny Rose crossed in for Lamela to slot in our second.

Anthony Knockaert pulled one back in stoppage time to make it a nervous last minute or so but we held on for all three points.

There were a few heroes on the pitch today and here are the player ratings from the game.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 6.5/10

The youngster did pretty well and made one good save to deny Knockaert. He couldn’t do much regarding the goal he conceded.

Kieran Trippier – 6/10

Trippier didn’t have the greatest time as he struggled a bit and even got a yellow card for a needless foul.

Toby Alderweireld – 7.5/10

The Belgian had a great chance to score early on and did a great job at keeping things tight for Spurs.

Jan Vertonghen – 7/10

Vertonghen didn’t have a lot to do at the back but he helped us to an important win in the final few minutes of the game.

Danny Rose – 7/10

Rose got the assist for the second goal but didn’t have the greatest of games for us. The Englishman should have done better for the goal we conceded.

Eric Dier – 5.5/10

This was another poor performance from the Englishman as he kept on making the wrong passes and losing possession.

Mousa Dembele – 7/10

The Belgian had a decent outing as his passing was good and kept things ticking for Spurs in the middle of the park.

Son Heung-min – 6/10

This was a quiet outing for the South Korean and he should have done more to help Spurs get all three points.

Christian Eriksen – 6/10

Another player who seemed to be out of touch was Eriksen. He must do a lot more if he is to keep his place in the team.

Lucas Moura – 6.5/10

The Brazilian tried to do things but they weren’t coming off. He did have a role in the second goal and was later subbed by Dele Alli.

Harry Kane – 6.5/10

Kane scored the penalty but couldn’t get another shot away as Brighton did well at keeping him quiet.

Substitutes

Erik Lamela – 7.5/10

The Argentine changed things as he provided an attacking outlet. He did well for the goal and maybe should start more games.

Dele Alli – N/A

The Englishman didn’t have a lot of time to make a difference to the game.

“We need this man in our team” – Some Spurs fans want 21-year-old Lyon midfield tank to join club

Published

on

Tanguy Ndombele was linked with a move to Tottenham in the summer, as per Sky Sports. The Lyon midfielder is a quality destroyer in the middle of the park and was at it again last night.

The French side played Manchester City and came out 2-1 winners at the Etihad. While Nabil Fekir starred in the attack, Ndombele was immense in the midfield and did his bit for Lyon.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has played five times for the Ligue 1 club this season and his performance in the Champions League caught the eye of a few Tottenham fans.

Spurs didn’t buy a single player in the offseason and have struggled in recent times, losing their last three games. Ndombele might not help us find the back of the net but he surely can keep the midfield from being overrun.

Some Spurs fans were quick to suggest we needed the 21-year-old while some were irate as to why we didn’t add to the midfield in the summer.
