Fauzi Ghoulam

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly joined the race to sign highly-rated Napoli left-back Fauzi Ghoulam, who is also being chased by AC Milan and Chelsea.

It was earlier said that AC Milan representatives had met with the player’s agent to discuss a move but now Tottenham have joined the race to sign the 26-year old Algerian left-back. Milan were believed to be trying to sign the full-back as a replacement for Mattia De Sciglio, who is being targeted by Liverpool.

Tottenham did not have any problems with the left-back position until Danny Rose’s injury. However, the Englishman is very close to making a return for the club.

Ghoulam has made 33 appearances for Napoli this term and has 7 assists to his name. Ghoulam is strong in the air, is a good passer and is capable of finding his teammates in good positions as well. He is a type of player who likes to keep the ball at his feet and get involved in the build-up play.

Ben Davies

Our Verdict

However, the question is; what would his arrival mean at White Hart Lane? Tottenham have two quality left-backs in Danny Rose and Ben Davies. In the absence of Rose, Davies has been fantastic for Tottenham and is looking like a player who deserves a place in the Tottenham XI.

The arrival of Ghoulam would certainly end Davies’ Tottenham dreams. Danny Rose is simply way too good to be replaced by Ghoulam, and hence that is not even an option to think about. It would be bizarre to say that Davies can be replaced by the Algerian. Ben Davies has settled in well at White Hart Lane under Pochettino and there is no valid reason as to why he should be replaced. Davies is young, dynamic and is a player who seems to suit Pochettino’s style of play.

We are certain that Pochettino wouldn’t want to change too much in the defence department as it looks well polished and composed. It is hard to see why Ghoulam has even been linked with Tottenham as there is absolutely no need for Pochettino to alter the defence. It is the best in the league. Case closed!

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

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.

(Video) Watch Tottenham’s new stadium’s artificial pitch lights functioning as work continues

Tottenham stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching towards completion as another new time-lapse video of our home was put up on YouTube.

The latest video shows a lot of pavement work being done outside. And the most interesting aspect of the clip is of our pitch.

Cranes can be seen operating on the surface inside the stadium. Once the vehicles leave, our artificial lighting can be seen moving about and illuminating the surface.

There is a lot of work still to be done on the exteriors and Tottenham haven’t communicated as to when our new home would be completed.

We had reported that Spurs quashed suggestions that the venue would not be ready before 2019.

Another allegation related to drug and alcohol abuse by the workers in the stadium was also refuted.

Tottenham had earlier claimed that the venue would be complete by 15th September, which was our clash against Liverpool.

Although a lot of effort is being taken to ensure the home is finished as quickly as possible, it is frustrating to see the stadium not looking close to completion as the pitch hasn’t been installed yet.

The planning for the stadium seems way off at the moment but hopefully, the team can produce a string of wins and take our minds off this delayed timeline.
