Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly reigniting their interest in Inter Milan midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia in the January transfer window.

According to reports in Sky Sports, the Lilywhites believe that their long-term target has improved his form at Valencia and hence want him as a long-term replacement for Mousa Dembele.

Two questions in this – 1) A replacement for Dembele? and 2) Why Kondogbia?

The first one is simple as the Belgian midfielder has entered into the final 18 months of his contract. I am not saying that Dembele is looking for a way out or the club is trying to look at alternatives. It is just a view of the club that Dembele’s position warrants a long-term candidate.

When he is fit and playing, Dembele is one of the best in the league. However, there lies the challenge; the Belgian often spends more time injured.

So, why Kondogbia? The 24-year-old has been our target for a long time now. Even during his time at Monaco, Spurs were regular admirers. But, the French midfielder snubbed the chance of signing for us and instead joined Inter Milan in 2015. He signed a five-year contract with Inter and made 43 starts in two seasons in the Serie A.

Kondogbia couldn’t establish himself at the Milan club and was deemed as surplus to requirements when Luciano Spalletti arrived in the summer. He went to Valencia on loan and that, in hindsight, is looking like a masterstroke.

Valencia are the surprise package of this season and are pushing Barcelona at the top of La Liga. I know it looks like a slight exaggeration but Valencia’s success has been due to the exploits of Kondogbia, at least partially.

So, will he sign for Tottenham? There is no doubt that the Frenchman is far better a player than what the La Liga portrays Kondogbia to be! It won’t be a surprise because Tottenham’s interest in the combative midfielder is because he is an ideal fit.

What do you think? Will Kondogbia be signed for the club or is it just a rumour?

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.
