Cenk Tosun

Tottenham are monitoring the progress of Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun after the club’s officials were left impressed with his recent form, reports a certain Turkish newspaper Haberturk. Rivals Everton too are interested in the forward.

Tosun, who has also attracted fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace, was born in Germany and is a product of the Eintracht Frankfurt youth setup. The striker decided to move to Turkey by joining Gaziantepspor at an early age and by the 2014-15 season, he caught the attention of Besiktas and moved to the Turkish giants. The striker has been a revelation since joining Besiktas and has already scored 36 goals in close to 90 appearances.

The aforementioned source has claimed that both Spurs and Everton have already spoken to the player’s representatives and we can expect an official approach in the January window or during the next summer window.

Furthermore, Tosun, who represented Germany at the U-21 level before switching his allegiance to Turkey, was reportedly close to moving to Crystal Palace during the summer and Newcastle were thought to be in the fray as well, but no move materialised for some reasons. Besiktas, on their part, will reportedly demand a fee close to €26m, which actually is a peanut sum judging by how clubs spent this past summer.

Tottenham decided to send Vincent Janssen to Fenerbahce on loan this season and decided to go for Fernando Llorente soon after. The former Swansea man, however, has looked completely anonymous and is yet to score a goal this season, in any competition. It is not just about scoring, the Spaniard has not even registered a single shot on target so far.

Mauricio Pochettino preferred to use Son Heung-Min ahead of Llorente when Harry Kane was unavailable against West Ham and Man United and this is where Tosun could come into the picture. Someone who is equally adept with both feet and is strong in the air, the Turkish striker has already scored 8 goals in 13 games in all competitions and 3 goals in 3 Champions League outings. He has guided his side to the top of group G.

Signing him, however, won’t be a walk in the park given that Everton are pursuing him as well. The Toffees lost Romelu Lukaku in the summer and have failed to replace him adequately. And with Tosun having proven himself on the continental stages, the Toffees might go hard for his signature and might well carry an upper hand given that they can offer him regular first-team football which we probably cannot.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“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.
