“He has a much milder character” – Agent claims Tottenham had serious interest in 20-year-old Serie A youngster

Nicolo Zaniolo’s agent claims Tottenham had serious interest in AS Roma star

Claudio Vigorelli, Nicolo Zaniolo’s agent, claims Tottenham were interested in the AS Roma star this summer.

Spurs signed four players in the summer, with Giovani Lo Celso joining during the final days of the transfer window, however, Vigorelli claims Zaniolo was the original target for Tottenham.

Nicolo Zaniolo

The agent told the Daily Mail that Tottenham were the only Premier League side to show concrete interest in the 20-year-old Zaniolo:

“He renewed with Roma and is fine at Roma but obviously we enjoyed the great interest of Tottenham, who were the runners up in the Champions League.

“Their concrete interest in him shows how good the boy’s season was.

“Spurs thought a lot about Nicolo before taking Lo Celso, they focused their attention on him seriously, more than any other club even beyond the Premier League.”

Agent compares Zaniolo to an English legend

Vigorelli claimed that Zaniolo should do well under Roma coach Paulo Fonseca and compared the Italian to Paul Gascoigne:

“Zaniolo resembles Gascoigne very much for his physical qualities but he has a much milder character.

“Now Fonseca is playing him in central midfield, a position he likes, where he can render and become just like Gascoigne: devastating with his technique and quality.”

The 20-year-old can play in several attacking positions and it will be interesting to see how he performs for Roma this season.

Giovani Lo Celso

The Italians aren’t in the Champions League this season while Spurs reached the final of the competition last time around. Zaniolo would have been a fantastic addition to the Tottenham side but Lo Celso isn’t a bad signing either.

The Argentine is yet to start for us after joining from Real Betis but has featured in several games from the bench.

“Can’t continue”, “Ridiculous decision” – Some Tottenham fans vent their frustration as 18-year-old doesn’t receive game time in Championship

Jack Clarke left out of Leeds United squad in win over Barnsley

Jack Clarke was left out of the Leeds United squad for their Championship clash against Barnsley.

The 18-year-old was signed from Tottenham at the start of the summer but was sent back to Leeds for a season-long loan. It was expected that Clarke would get first-team minutes regularly under Bielsa, however, that has not been the case.

The winger hasn’t featured in any of their Championship games, and his chances in the cup competitions have been reduced after Leeds were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Stoke City.

Bielsa’s side are leading the Championship at the moment, however, Clarke should have featured after his game-winning goal for the England U20s against Switzerland during the international break.

Fans unhappy with Clarke’s game time

The English winger will not develop if he doesn’t feature in the first-team and Bielsa does have a tough decision to make. EFL rules limit the number of on-loan players a team can name on a matchday and that has seen Clarke miss out on several games.

Tottenham need to make a decision on the Englishman’s future as Clarke has a lot of potential, but recalling him won’t ensure he would get starts at Spurs too.

Many Tottenham fans were unhappy with the English winger’s situation at Leeds and vented their frustration on Twitter.

Vedat Muriqi scouted by Manchester United during England clash

The Daily Star (h/t Sun) claims that Manchester United have joined the race for Kosovo international Vedat Muriqi.

The 25-year-old put up an impressive showing against England during a recent Euro 2020 qualifier, and the report claims that Manchester United and Tottenham scouted the forward in the game.

Vedat Muriqi (L)

Muriqi has been impressive in the Turkish league over the past 18 months and has done a great job for his new club Fenerbahce.

The Kosovo international already has two goals from three games for his new club and has also attracted the attention of Serie A giants Napoli, according to the report.

United could move for the striker in the winter window as they lack options after the departures of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku (h/t Sun).

An option that Tottenham need

Tottenham are also in need of signing some quality cover for Harry Kane. We didn’t sign anyone to replace Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen as the pair left during the summer window.

Kane has had his injury problems in recent seasons, and we need to sign someone who can provide us with a different option in the final third. Muriqi is great in the air and would be a quality target man to have in the team.

It will be interesting to see if we move for the Kosovo star in the winter window or wait until the end of the season before signing another forward.

Tottenham certain this star will play for Real Madrid as 27-year-old waits for call

Christian Eriksen waiting for call from Real Madrid over transfer

Marca claims that Christian Eriksen is still waiting for a call from Real Madrid after a summer move failed.

The Dane is out of a contract at the end of the season and has rejected every offer put on the table by Daniel Levy (h/t Marca).

Real have made contact with Tottenham in the past but no official bid for Eriksen was submitted, according to the report.

The Dane has been one of our most impressive players this season and has featured in all five Premier League games so far.

Eriksen’s reps making calls

Tottenham had offered Eriksen to Madrid in the summer but Zinedine Zidane wanted to sign Paul Pogba and neither deal happened (h/t Marca).

However, the Dane’s representatives have been making calls to several clubs in Europe, including the La Liga giants, and Eriksen is free to negotiate with foreign clubs in January, according to the report.

Tottenham, for their part, are certain that Eriksen will end up playing for Real Madrid next season (h/t Marca).

The 27-year-old has been one of our best signings in the Premier League era but him leaving on a free would be a bad move financially for Spurs.

Selling him in January could get us a decent sum but with six months left on his deal, it would make more financial sense to land him on a free at the end of the campaign.

Tottenham record their joint-highest London derby win in Premier League history

Tottenham were excellent against Crystal Palace and scored four goals past the visitors in the first half.

Spurs needed that win after not picking up the three points since the opening day of the season, but this performance should lead to better outcomes for the rest of the season.

Tottenham played Arsenal before the international break in a London derby but gave away a two-goal lead, however, that was not repeated yesterday.

The four goals scored saw Tottenham record their joint-biggest win in a London derby in the Premier League era.

Son the lucky charm for Spurs

Son started for us against the Eagles and scored a brace in the win. The second goal was an exquisite volley from a Serge Aurier cross, and it seems that the South Korean is a bit of a lucky charm for us against Palace.

The forward has faced Palace four times at home and has scored in each game.

Tottenham dominated the clash and it was a surprise that Harry Kane didn’t find the back of the net on Saturday.

The Englishman did set up Erik Lamela for the fourth goal of the game, and we should carry this kind of form into the next game.

Son was one of the stars for the side and we need the South Korean to be at his best for the rest of the campaign.
