Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino fears Tottenham are helpless when it comes to preventing their long-term transfer targets joining richer clubs. The Argentine was speaking a week after Spurs were forced to concede defeat to Chelsea in the battle for Ross Barkley. And reportedly, Bordeaux attacker Malcom is edging closer to an Arsenal switch.

With just six months remaining on his contract, Barkley moved to Stamford Bridge for a cut-price £15million – after previously indicating he would be up for a move to North London. With Spurs looking to tie both Dele Alli and Harry Kane to long-term deals to remain at the club, Pochettino fears that the rise of the club’s rivals will become more and more of an issue in the game.

“It’s difficult to keep secrets. Sometimes the media knows before me the player who we are going to sign. That makes our job difficult. How do you keep it secret? Impossible,” Pochettino was quoted by Daily Mail.

“Maybe someone near the player is going to talk. Maybe you make an offer and it’s used to talk with another club. It is frustrating. We can’t stop it.”

Tottenham’s interest in Malcom was largely off the radar until reports emerged earlier this month that the club had made an enquiry. Since then, Arsenal and Manchester United have both made moves for the gifted winger. But according to Pochettino, he had no update on a potential move for the 20-year-old Brazilian.

“It’s another rumour,” the Argentine told Sky Sports. “There are a lot of rumours in the media.

“Tottenham are a club who in three-and-a-half years I saw in the media, minimum 100 names and out of them we signed only a few.”

However, the former Espanyol manager is not bothered by either the club’s January inactivity or other rivals’ spending, after Liverpool spent big to bring defender Virgil van Dijk from Southampton.

He said: “Until now, before the press conference, there is nothing close. “I’m not concerned, I’m not worried. I think we are working and are awake about the market.

“If something is available in terms that we can take, of course, we are going to do it but, if not, it’s difficult.

“Personally, I never look next to me at what the other teams are doing. It’s about how I believe and try to make things happen.”

Though there are some areas in our squad that need to be strengthened, I don’t think we’ll spend over the top to bring in a player to the club this month. However, it wouldn’t hurt to raise our hopes, would it?

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.
