Abdoulaye Doucoure

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure in the summer transfer window.

According to reports, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on the midfielder, who has impressed for Watford this season.

The 25-year-old has been vital for the Hornets this campaign and continues to dish out impressive performances at a consistent rate. Doucoure’s consistency and extra-ordinary work-rate in midfield simply show he is capable of plying his trade for a bigger club in the Premier League or outside England.

Doucoure has been Watford’s standout performer this season, making 30 appearances and netting seven times in the process to stand as their top-scorer.

And the Frenchman’s fine form has attracted a host of Premier League clubs, including Spurs, who are keen to sign him from Watford in summer, the Mirror reports.

Mauricio Pochettino needs to plan for future with Mousa Dembele ageing and has also struggled with injuries since last year. The Belgian has been a consistent performer for the Spurs but has endured an injury-hit campaign.

Pochettino trusts Dembele highly but knowing the player has reached his 30’s, he cannot afford to take a risk.

And if Spurs sign Doucoure, he would walk straight into the first XI and could be a real upgrade on the likes of Eric Dier, Harry Winks and Victor Wanyama.

Apart from Doucoure’s defensive shielding, the midfielder has shown this season that he also keeps an eye for goal. He has already netted seven for the Hornets so far and that tally being a central midfielder is simply worth praising.

The former Rennes man has displayed good awareness, intelligence and hunger for goals this campaign. He has been at his bulldozing best at times, bringing a mix of awareness and combative approach to his game.

Doucoure remained coy when asked about his future in a recent interview. The midfielder said:

“We’ll see what the state of play is in the summer and then we can ask questions.”

The hard-tackling midfielder has still two years left on his current contract at Watford but he is expected to have high interest in summer from some of Premier League’s big boys.

It would be interesting to see where Doucoure ends up but Spurs should definitely go all guns blazing for him in the summer transfer window.

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.
