Leon Goretzka

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in German midfielder Leon Goretzka who is currently playing for Bundesliga side Schalke. According to the Sunday Mirror, Tottenham are getting ready to battle arch-rivals Arsenal for the signature of this midfielder.

The 22-year-old has been on the Gunners’ radar for quite some time as Goretzka is a well-known target for Arsene Wenger. However, Tottenham scouts have entered the race and have attended almost all of Schalke’s games last month, to check the progress of the midfielder.

I call it a race because Goretzka is courted by a number of clubs across England and Europe. Tottenham and Arsenal have been joined by Liverpool in registering their interest from the Premier League while Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also reportedly interested in signing him.

One of the reasons for this increased interest in the player is the state of his current contract. Goretzka’s deal with Schalke expires next summer and the player is showing little – or dare I say, no – interest in extending it. That means the prospect of the player turning a free agent next summer is very high. Also, he would be free to enter into a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs in January itself.

To top that, Goretzka is the ‘type of player’ that Daniel Levy usually likes to bring in. He is young, has great potential and will come cheap, as his deal is nearing completion.

Also, Goretzka’s exploits with his club and nation this year have increased his chances of getting chosen for Germany’s World Cup team next year. Provided that he continues his good form on the biggest stage, his value could only increase.

Isn’t it ideal for Tottenham to make a move? Yes, of course, but there is a catch in all this. The midfielder is reportedly interested in a move to Barcelona or Bayern, and Tottenham is not in his list of potential destinations.

Both those clubs could pounce on the idea of signing such a huge talent for free, which puts Tottenham’s chances of landing him, next to nothing.

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.

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.
