Ross Barkley

Antonio Conte’s Chelsea are expected to revive their interest in Everton midfielder Ross Barkley in the January transfer window, but this time around, face a stern challenge from Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur, claims a report from the Daily Mirror.

Chelsea tried their hands on getting the midfielder during the summer and as per BBC, they even lodged a £25m offer, which Everton rejected. However, a deal was soon agreed upon, but the player backed out of the move, walking away halfway through his medical.

The midfielder has now entered the final six months of his current contract and judging by the look of things, he is certain to leave Goodison Park. But now with Tottenham in the fray, it remains to be seen as to which part of London he picks. As things stand for Everton now, their new boss Sam Allardyce has said that he is yet to discuss things with Barkley but has admitted that he won’t be having any say should the Everton hierarchy sanction the sale.

“If someone comes in during January and says ‘Here you go’ and the club say, ‘Look, if he’s not going to sign for us, this has to be the case’ then I accept that,” the former England manager said, as quoted by the Mirror.

The 24-year-old is now nearing full fitness and Tottenham have now decided to enter the race alongside Chelsea. Mauricio Pochettino is a big admirer of the England international and has been monitoring his status since the summer window. But he did not make a move, owing to the steep price that Everton were demanding.

Back in the summer transfer window, the two London giants battled it out for Swansea’s Fernando Llorente and with the Lilywhites being ‘quicker than the Blues,’ the Spaniard who played under Conte at Juventus, moved to North London. Something similar can happen in January, to say the least, as Barkley is now the subject of severe interest from both the clubs.

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.
