Premier League rivals to make £42m January bid for 27-year-old Tottenham star

Manchester United enter talks to sign Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen

Manchester United have opened negotiations to sign Christian Eriksen in the January transfer window, according to El Desmarque (h/t Express).

The 27-year-old Dane is a free agent at the end of the season and could leave for nothing in the summer.

Eriksen only has two goals to his name this season for us and was on the bench in our 1-1 draw with Sheffield United on Saturday.

The report claims that United tried to sign Eriksen during the summer. However, the Dane rebuffed advances from them as he wanted to play for Real Madrid (h/t Express).

The Dane has now given up on playing for Los Galacticos and United will try to land him in January (h/t Express).

The Red Devils will place a £42million bid for the Tottenham star in hopes of signing him before the summer window (h/t Express).

Tottenham in a tough position

Getting £42m for a player who is in the last six months of his contract would be a great deal for Tottenham. Eriksen just hasn’t clicked into gear this season and making some money during the winter window would be quite a wise move.

However, landing a replacement wouldn’t be easy in January and we could do with some fresh faces in the team. Giovani Lo Celso started his second game of the season against Sheffield United and could fill the gap left by Eriksen.

The Argentine has struggled with injuries since joining Tottenham and has just one goal to his name all season.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.

“No he doesn’t”: Mourinho gives a big hint on whether this Tottenham star will start vs Wolves

Giovani Lo Celso to be dropped from the starting XI against Wolves

According to Mirror, Giovani Lo Celso is all set to miss out on the Tottenham Hotspur starting XI for the Premier League clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers this Sunday at the Molineaux.

The 23-year-old midfielder on loan from Real Betis has failed to impress so far and finds himself down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho, while speaking ahead of the game, said:

“Our squad is not a big squad in numbers, and he will start for sure because it’s impossible to play all the time with the same players,”.

“I couldn’t hide from you that we have a few players one step ahead because of performance. So you want to be objective and asks if he starts Sunday, no he doesn’t.”

Lo Celso did himself no favours with the performance against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Although he showed glimpses of his skills, it lacked the effect or consistency to affect the game positively.

Other Midfielders such as Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko have also stepped up their game further, pushing Lo Celso down the pecking order, an observation not lost on the manager.

With Tottenham set to play 6 games in the next 3 weeks, Mourinho will be pressed to rotate his players to account for fatigue and will invariably have to call upon Lo Celso at some point in the run-in.

Giovani Lo Celso has made 8 appearances for Tottenham in the English Premier League, of which 7 were as a substitute. He has scored 1 goal.

Marouane Fellaini won’t be moving to Tottenham in January

Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has turned down the chance to join Tottenham in January.

The 32-year-old joined Shandong Luneng from United and has impressed in his first season. The lanky Belgian has seven goals and four assists from 22 games but has been linked with Spurs (h/t Evening Standard).

Fellaini has a deal for another two years with the Chinese club and told Eleven Sports that he is in contact with Jose Mourinho (h/t Evening Standard):

“Jose is special for me.

“We text each other, we call each other from time to time.”

However, the Belgian claimed he was happy at Luneng and wished Mourinho the best:

“He’s taken over at Spurs and he’s doing well. I wish him all the best, but I am good where I am now.”

Spurs don’t have a lot of money to spend

Signing a few players in the winter window could give us the extra push we need to get into the top four.

However, the Evening Standard claims that there will be limited funds for the boss to spend when the window opens.

Brendan Rodgers claims Tottenham-linked James Maddison won’t leave in January

James Maddison has been excellent for Leicester City this season. The England midfielder has helped the Foxes to second in the Premier League and has also featured for the national team.

The 23-year-old has five goals and three assists for Leicester this season and has been linked with Tottenham (h/t Football.london).

Maddison joined Leicester from Norwich City around 18 months ago, and his progress has been incredible.

However, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers believes that none of his players will leave the club next month (h/t Football.london):

“If you’re doing well, there will always be speculation.

“The boys understand that. Maddison has started the season very well, he’s been very productive. He’s a bright young player and he’s got a bright future.

“There’ll be no-one leaving in January. Categorically.”

Tottenham’s midfield problems

Maddison could work wonders for this Spurs team as we lack goals from the midfield. Christian Eriksen is a free agent in the summer while Giovani Lo Celso hasn’t played much under Jose Mourinho.

Eriksen has struggled for consistency this season while Lo Celso hasn’t been able to cement a place under the new boss.

Mourinho has to solve this issue soon as almost half the season is already done.

Danny Rose can’t guarantee his future at Tottenham despite Jose Mourinho’s appointment

Danny Rose has claimed that he hasn’t spoken with Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese took over at Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino was replaced by the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan manager after a poor run of results.

Mourinho has turned things around for us with just two losses since taking over, however, Rose spoke about his contract situation too.

The English left-back had earlier claimed he would leave when his contract is done and suggested he would do the same (h/t Sun):

“I’ve never had a conversation with him and I don’t see why I need to.

“As I said before, I’m here for the next 18 months so I don’t see why I need to have a conversation with the manager.”

Rose added that he wants to do well with Spurs and is aiming to finish in the top four.

Rose pleased with Mourinho at club

The Englishman added that he had the pleasure of working under Pochettino, and couldn’t believe that Mourinho was our manager now:

“I never thought I would be managed by Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.

“That’s credit to the club, how well they’ve progressed throughout the years and to get someone like Jose has been obviously brilliant.”

The left-back added that he expected Mourinho to aim for the top-four and the FA Cup too, given that he is a winner.

Rose has had his struggles at the club and it will be interesting to see if he is leaving in 18 months.

Ben Davies can do a good job as the left-back and is the replacement for Rose in the current team.
