Moussa Sissoko of Tottenham

Even though the Premier League window has shut up shop, the Spanish sides can still make a signing ahead of their extended window, which is to end at 11:00 PM BST on 1 September.

While we cannot sign any players from La Liga, there are reports suggesting that Valencia are interested in bringing in Moussa Sissoko on a loan deal and end the French midfielder’s torrid spell with us.

Plaza Deportiva (h/t IBTimes) reports that Los Che are trying to convince our manager Mauricio Pochettino to let Sissoko join them. Their new manager, Marcelino Garcia Toral has seen a lot of changes in his playing squad.

Unfortunately for them, Andreas Pereira of Manchester United did not make the move to the La Liga side after doing extremely well for Granada last season. The failure to sign the young Brazilian seems to have spurred on Los Che and they are planning to fill in that gap of an attacking midfielder by signing the former Newcastle United star.

Sissoko had a horrible time for us last season and there were many reports claiming that the £95,000-per-week earner would be joining Turkish side Trabzonspor on loan, but that didn’t take place either. It will also be interesting to see if Valencia are in a position to pay the entire amount or not, given that they have been in a spot of bother regarding their finances in recent years.

This could be the final chance for Sissoko to make his move away to another side and if he does not play regularly ahead of a World Cup year, the 27-year-old would be missing out on joining a talented French side that swept Netherlands away 4-0 in yesterday’s World Cup qualifier game.

Sissoko and Pochettino should decide if he is going to stay here and given that this is the last chance saloon at the moment, loaning the Frenchman would be a win-win situation for all.

Valencia would have to foot the majority of his rather astronomical wages but at least we would be able to get rid of the Frenchman and hopefully push a youngster up and provide him with experience.

The clock is ticking and if anyone can crack a deal in the final few minutes, it is Daniel Levy and his team.

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



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.

[Video] This latest aerial video of Tottenham’s $1bn new stadium is absolutely wonderful



Tottenham new stadium

YouTuber Mr AV (h/t Football.London) has posted a new high-definition video of our club’s stunning new $1bn stadium. The footage provides us with a clear picture of how much work has been done in terms of the construction.

The video also showed the soon-to-be-opened club megastore and the Tottenham Museum. The aerial footage of the new stadium was wonderful as it also showed the overall structure of the stadium and the single-tier 17,500-seater south stand. The video also shows the area where the giant golden cockerel will sit above that stand.

It is not known as to when the stadium would be available for use but it looks like the construction is progressing at a reasonable rate.

It was indeed a disappointment when it was decided by the club hierarchy that we would be playing our home games at Wembley this season but that would all change when the stadium is unveiled officially. The construction has taken quite a bit of time and it will be an exciting phase when the work is completed.
