Emmanuel Adebayor has admitted that he would be welcome to a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

The former Togolese international, who scored twice to help current side Real Madrid knock Spurs out of the Champions League last month, would welcome the chance to join up with Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane despite claims of racist chanting during the quarter final enocunter at the Bernabeu. 

Talking to Sky Sports News, Adebayor said “I heard about the chants and I felt so bad because before joining Real Madrid, my first choice was Tottenham.

“When I heard the songs I didn’t take it seriously. I didn’t take it in a bad way at all but it was bad because people today have to realise that we are footballers. Today we play for this club and the next day we might end up playing for them.

“I would go there and sign for them. Maybe those fans were furious because I was scoring against them. Maybe they were thinking like that because Adebayor was taking them out of the Champions League and ending their dream of getting to the final.”

Any move to White Hart Lane would be likely to cause controvesy due to Adebayor’s stint with North London rivals Arsenal but with William Gallas making the switch across the great divide last summer, Redknapp wouldn’t be detered from making a move following the success of the Frenchman in the heart of the Spurs defence.

Adebayor has made a total of 33 appearances for both Real Madrid and Manchester City this season scoring 10 goals in the process

Premier League manager confirms that 22-year-old Tottenham target could be sold for the right price

Tottenham target James Maddison would be sold if the right bid is submitted

Leicester City star James Maddison has been on the up since his move from Norwich City.

The 22-year-old midfielder is one of the most creative players in the Premier League and was recently called up to the senior England squad.

Moving from the Championship to the Premier League was a seamless transition for the youngster, and Football.london reports that Maddison was linked with Tottenham in the summer.

The report adds that Manchester United were also keen on the Englishman and speculation about his future will continue until January.

Leicester decided to sell Harry Maguire for a record fee in the summer and Brendan Rodgers told that the Foxes could be tempted to sell other stars for the right price. The former Liverpool manager was quoted by Leicester Live saying (h/t Football.london):

“In a player’s career, there will always be that temptation.

“This is a club that doesn’t want to sell its best players, but of course, if there’s a valuation that is met, which meets what the club perceive the player to be worth, then there will be a discussion.”

However, Rodgers didn’t want to lead teams on with bids for Maddison just yet:

“But it’s not something we want to invite. James is very much a talented player for us.

“He still has lots of improvements to make as a young player.”

Rodgers added that he was a “realist” and knew how the market works, but wanted to keep hold of his starlets.

A perfect player for Spurs?

Maddison would be a wonderful addition to the side and given Mauricio Pochettino’s history of working with young players, we would see the best out of the Englishman.

The 22-year-old has to keep on producing the goods in the midfield, and he should get a big move sooner than later.

Hopefully, Spurs can beat off competition from the likes of United and land Maddison.

Spanish expert explains why Tottenham star didn’t join Real Madrid in the summer despite agreeing on terms

Guillem Balague explains why Christian Eriksen didn’t join Real Madrid in the summer

Guillem Balague highlighted Zinedine Zidane’s struggles at Real Madrid this season after the Frenchman took the job again. The legend left Real at the start of the previous campaign only to be reinstated after a run of poor results.

Real haven’t been all that great this season either and were beaten by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last night.

Tottenham also didn’t fare too well as we drew with Olympiakos on the night as several stars struggled.

Christian Eriksen was one of the stars who failed to do the job for Spurs, and Balague wrote in his BBC column that Madrid had agreed on terms with the Dane.

The Spanish expert suggested that the deal didn’t take place because Zidane wanted Paul Pogba, but the inability to sell other players also was an issue (h/t BBC):

“The club had agreed terms with Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen and Ajax’s Donny van de Beek, but Zidane stopped the moves because Pogba was the midfielder he wanted.

“The reality is that Zidane and the club were hoping to sell Isco, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez, but no offers were forthcoming.”

The expert further added that Manchester United had no intention of selling Pogba in the summer, and Zidane is using the current players to prove they aren’t good enough.

Eriksen wasn’t the only player struggling last night

The Dane wasn’t the only Spurs star struggling in the previous game with our defence all over the place.

We were slightly fortunate not to concede a third goal and need to improve at the back.

Eriksen is a free agent at the end of the season, and it will be interesting to see what happens with him in the January window.

Spurs could sell him in the winter window or lose him for nothing next summer.

Manchester United to target Christian Eriksen in the January window

The Athletic (h/t Express) claims that Manchester United will move for two targets in the winter window.

The Red Devils haven’t had a great start to the season but did pick up an important win against Leicester City at the weekend.

United have already dropped points against Southampton and lost to Crystal Palace, and the report claims that Sean Longstaff is one target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The other target for the Red Devils is Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen (h/t Express).

United keen on Eriksen

The report adds that the Manchester side have been long-time admirers of the Dane and even Sir Alex Ferguson contemplated signing Eriksen in 2012 but chose to move for Shinji Kagawa instead.

The Dane is one of the best creative players in the Premier League and is out of a contract at the end of the season. Keeping hold of the midfielder beyond next summer would be an achievement by Spurs.

However, Eriksen had spoken about taking up a new challenge at the end of the previous campaign, but a summer move did not take place.

Losing the Dane would be a major blow but we should put out all the stops to ensure he doesn’t sign for a Premier League rival.

Selling him in January makes sense as we can get a decent sum for the 27-year-old but he should be sold to a foreign club.

Tottenham to offer mega €260,000-a-week deal to out of contract 27-year-old talisman

The Daily Mail (h/t Calciomercato) claims that Tottenham are set to offer Christian Eriksen a new deal to keep hold of the 27-year-old.

Eriksen is out of a contract at the end of the season, and the report adds that the Dane has attracted the interest of Juventus, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

The Dane has become one of the best players in the Premier League since joining from Ajax and it would be incredible if we could keep hold of the 27-year-old. Tottenham are preparing a deal worth €260,000-a-week to keep their star, according to the report.

Eriksen can leave for nothing next season

The Dane leaving on a free transfer would be a huge error in our transfer dealings and would cost us millions in transfer fees.

The 27-year-old has looked impressive for us this season, having played in all five Premier League games, and it will be interesting to see how he performs once the Champions League starts.

Eriksen had spoken about taking up a new challenge at the end of the previous campaign and it was a surprise why he couldn’t seal an exit this summer.

The 27-year-old has his best years ahead of him and keeping him at the club would be quite an achievement after the summer window. Tottenham were able to keep hold of most of their stars and spent big on Tanguy Ndombele.

The season didn’t start off well for us, but the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace is the perfect pick-up for the rest of the campaign.
