Tottenham Hotspur could make a move for Nice’s Jean Michael Seri in the summer after the club had reportedly sent the scouts a few times to check in on the midfielder and his progress this season. Spurs might face some tough competition from Premier League rivals Manchester United, who are also interested in the Ivorian, with Jose Mourinho targeting a midfielder at the end of this season.

The 26-year-old was heavily linked to Barcelona last year but the move failed to materialise. However, as per London.Football, Seri could be available in summer for a fee in the range of €40million.

Seri had starred for Nice last season with his fantastic displays in the heart of the midfield. Although he has blown hot and cold this season, there is no doubting the player’s qualities on the ball.

A dominant presence in the midfield, the Ivory Coast international makes Nice tick as a unit with his all-round abilities. He is often deployed as a deep-lying playmaker due to his creativity and inventiveness and also keeps the ability to play anywhere in midfield.

Strong in possession and very witty with the ball, Seri is a midfield dictator with good passing abilities. Solid, robust and athletic, the midfielder possesses a silky touch and loves spreading the play with his eye-catching crossing skills.

Spurs are on the lookout for a midfielder, capable of replacing Mousa Dembele. Dembele, a workhorse in the mould of a midfield destroyer, has entered the 30’s and should realistically serve high-quality football for few more years in the Premier League.

The Belgian was the star for Spurs in the 2-2 draw against Juventus on Tuesday. The way he ran the show, cutting past the Juventus midfielders with ease and poise was something of a delight to watch. Dembele bullied Sami Khedira to a certain extent that the German went entirely missing in the second-half.

There is a case for Mauricio Pochettino to start looking out at a like-for-like Dembele replacement, as the Belgian has started to show signs of slowing down.

While the former Fulham man may still be able to play the role of a midfield general for Pochettino’s side, he has suffered some injury issues this season which has somewhat forced the Spurs manager to take extra precautions of his midfielder.

Spurs representatives were spotted keeping tabs on Seri during Nice’s Europa League game against Lokomotiv Moscow Thursday, report French outlet SFR (h/t Sport Witness).

A move for Seri in the summer makes clear sense. The Ivorian is a special mix of skill and creativity and would be an ideal signing for Spurs.

“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.
