 Manuel Akanji is one of the hottest prospects in European football and has been linked with a move to a number of clubs outside Switzerland. The 22-year-old plays a centre-back for Basel and seems to be a target for Tottenham, according to Swiss outlet Blick.

The report suggests that we are not the only team looking to add the talented defender to our side. West Ham United, Borussia Dortmund and Southampton are also chasing the 22-year-old, who has had a stellar season for his current club.

Basel are into the knockout round of the Champions League and Akanji has played every minute in their European campaign. The 22-year-old has also become a regular for the Swiss national side and that is one reason why Dortmund are leading the chase as they want to sign the player up in the winter window.

The report claims that the Bundesliga side have already tabled a bid worth €15m but Basel are holding out for €20m (£17.7m).

We might be looking to sign the next big talent in defence and a bidding war could start not only with Dortmund but with the other Premier League sides too, especially with Akanji looking to cement his place in the Swiss side ahead of the World Cup.

Another Quality Talent Heading To Tottenham?

Akanji is rated as one of the best young defenders in the world and it should come as no surprise that a number of clubs are after him. The 22-year-old does have a couple of goals to his name but he also has a lot of potential to grow and become one of the most dominant defenders in the years to come.

We already hit gold with Davinson Sanchez at the start of the season and tying down this player would add a lot of quality to our defence.

Akanji can certainly grow into one of the best in the world under Mauricio Pochettino and with the future of Toby Alderweireld still up in the air, the Swiss youngster could be our man for the future.

“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.

(Video) Watch Tottenham’s new stadium’s artificial pitch lights functioning as work continues

Tottenham stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching towards completion as another new time-lapse video of our home was put up on YouTube.

The latest video shows a lot of pavement work being done outside. And the most interesting aspect of the clip is of our pitch.

Cranes can be seen operating on the surface inside the stadium. Once the vehicles leave, our artificial lighting can be seen moving about and illuminating the surface.

There is a lot of work still to be done on the exteriors and Tottenham haven’t communicated as to when our new home would be completed.

We had reported that Spurs quashed suggestions that the venue would not be ready before 2019.

Another allegation related to drug and alcohol abuse by the workers in the stadium was also refuted.

Tottenham had earlier claimed that the venue would be complete by 15th September, which was our clash against Liverpool.

Although a lot of effort is being taken to ensure the home is finished as quickly as possible, it is frustrating to see the stadium not looking close to completion as the pitch hasn’t been installed yet.

The planning for the stadium seems way off at the moment but hopefully, the team can produce a string of wins and take our minds off this delayed timeline.
