Tottenham might be feeling the heat at this stage of the season as their hopes for a Premier League title rests on the shoulders of Harry Kane. The English striker has banged in 21 goals in the league this season but hasn’t really received a lot of support when it comes to the goal scoring load.

Spurs might still be in second place but if Kane was to go out injured for a long time or even go cold in front of goal, they would be in a lot of problems trying to crack down defences. Tottenham haven’t got someone who can score the goals when needed but they could well have found someone who can do that.

Michy Batshuayi has been one of the brightest players for more than a season now and with many suitors keeping a track of his exploits in Marseille, it only is a matter of time before he makes it into the Premier League, if the right money is paid for him.

From Marseille to London

Batshuayi is only 22-year-old but has already become an integral part of the Ligue 1 team. The Belgian has scored 18 goals in 42 appearances for the French side this season and also has bagged nine assists to go along with his goal scoring tally.

Michy is an out and out striker, though he has the pace to play out wide, he has the tendency to cut in and take a shot on goal. The Belgian does have special qualities up front and is known to run and do quick one-twos with his teammates.

Batshuayi might be built well but he isn’t great in the air either and that could be a great problem if he is to play in the Premier League. The 22-year-old also does not do much tracking back and that could be a problem for Mauricio Pochettino if he is to sign up for Tottenham.

The good thing about Michy is that he is young and will obviously get better as he gets older. The Belgian might not be the best striker in Ligue 1 but he does have a lot of potential and the way players have developed under the Argentine at Spurs, Batshuayi could well turn into one of the best strikers in the world.

Belgium have a great crop of players currently and Michy is certainly one of them. It will be interesting to see if Spurs are willing to shell for this prodigy.

    I’m so tire of reading this rumor and the berahino one. I really wish there was solid evidence of Spurs lining up bids for Breel D Embolo and Youri Tielemans. They would add quality, depth and even more youth to the squad and fill the gaps. Those are the only two signings needed IMO unless Carter-Vickers isn’t quite ready next season to play back up then they should sign another defender since our CBs are aging.

    Agree with Woody.I’d love to see Batshuayi arrive but our front end is not really weak. Of course an injury to Kane would be hard, but we have Lamela, Son, Chadli, Alli, N’jie and Onomah who could play the front end.

Levy shares concerning message about why Tottenham couldn’t sell players in the summer



Daniel Levy highlights why Tottenham couldn’t sell players in the summer

Tottenham face problems as several players are keen on moving from the club, according to the Mirror.

Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Christian Eriksen are in the final year of their deals and could leave for free next summer.

Daniel Levy recently spoke about Spurs not being able to sell their unwanted stars, during a meeting with the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust.

The chairman explained that clubs weren’t keen on some of the players and the offers on the table weren’t acceptable either.

The minutes of the meeting read (h/t Mirror):

“DL (Levy) said Tottenham had been one of the biggest spenders among Premier League clubs in the recent transfer window. It had also not generated all the sales the club hoped for.

“DL reiterated just how difficult it is to get a transfer over the line.

“In 90 per cent of instances either a buyer could not be found for a player or the player did not wish to join the club that had expressed an interest in buying them.”

Not being able to sell players that don’t want to be at the club is a problem, and that seems to have affected us. It is a little shocking that we couldn’t get deals done and now have to keep them until January at least.

Levy suggests there could be other departures

The chairman also spoke about the players in the last year of their deals and added that Spurs couldn’t force anyone to sign a new deal. Levy also claimed that some stars have been at Tottenham for a long time and wanted to play elsewhere.

It could be a painful summer for Tottenham, with several players possibly leaving the club. This would start another rebuilding cycle and we should not have fallen into this phase after the great work done by Mauricio Pochettino.

Replacing Eriksen or Alderweireld will not be cheap. However, we will lose them for nothing if they run their contract out. Tottenham have a lot of work to do in the coming months and hopefully, we don’t lose our competitive edge.

Former England manager backs Tottenham boss Pochettino to snub Premier League rivals



Sam Allardyce backs Mauricio Pochettino to snub Manchester United job

Former Everton and England manager Sam Allardyce has backed Mauricio Pochettino to stick with Tottenham.

Manchester United and Spurs have had poor starts to the season, and Pochettino has been linked with the job at Old Trafford (h/t Metro).

However, the Red Devils are below Spurs in the table, and Allardyce claims Tottenham have a better side than United (h/t Metro):

“I can’t see Mauricio going anywhere at the moment

“At the moment, Tottenham are a better squad than Manchester United – and that is a telling fact.

“It’s alright saying, ‘this is Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world’, but has it got the team to go with it to represent Manchester United?”

Tottenham are still in a better place than United

Although our season has been far from satisfactory, Spurs are capable of turning things around. Pochettino is one of the top managers in the world and just needs to tweak certain things in the team.

United, for their part, don’t seem to have a proper game plan and most of the players aren’t doing well.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started his career at Old Trafford with a bang but after becoming the permanent manager, things haven’t been great.

They lie two points off the relegation zone and face Liverpool after the international break. Tottenham face a struggling Watford, and we should get the three points against the Hornets.

Allardyce is right in suggesting we have a better squad than the Red Devils, and it is time for the players to step up.

German giants see Tottenham star as a cheaper alternative for Brazilian midfielder



Bayern Munich see Christian Eriksen as cheaper option than Philippe Coutinho

Bayern Munich are the latest giants to be linked with Christian Eriksen, according to Sport 1 (h/t Sky Sports).

The Bundesliga giants have a fantastic squad at hand but are interested in landing the Dane, who is a free agent in the summer.

The report adds that the Bavarians will fight Real Madrid for the signature of Eriksen. However, the Dane is open to leaving London for Munich (h/t Sky Sports).

The Tottenham star is one of the most creative players in the Premier League, and Bayern see him as a replacement for a summer signing.

Eriksen to replace Coutinho?

Philippe Coutinho had a woeful time at Barcelona and was allowed to join Bayern on loan in the summer.

However, the Germans see Eriksen as a cheaper option to Coutinho and he could be signed for nothing in January (h/t Sky Sports).

The Dane could do a great job at Bayern but Coutinho has had a decent start to his career in Germany.

The Brazilian has two goals and two assists from six Bundesliga games and was one of the stars during the Copa America. Eriksen, for his part, has struggled for form this season and only has one goal and an assist.

Eriksen wanted to try something in the summer, and it will be interesting to see where he plays next season.

Tottenham star turns down €6m-a-season deal in hopes of moving away at the end of his contract



Christian Eriksen turns down contract offer from Tottenham

Christian Eriksen seems set to leave Tottenham after he rejected a 50% pay increase on his current deal, according to AS (h/t Daily Star).

The Dane is a free agent at the end of the season and Spurs have attempted to keep him at the club.

Eriksen isn’t the only player on the final year of his contract, with Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen too in the same boat.

The report claims that Eriksen earns €4m per season after tax and Tottenham were willing to raise that to €6m.

The new deal would have put Eriksen on the same pay scale as Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris, however, the Dane would still earn less than Kane (h/t Daily Star).

Tottenham could have made a huge sum in the summer

Real Madrid are still keen on the 27-year-old Dane and could move for him in January (h/t Daily Star).

They were hesitant to move in the summer after their grand spending on Eden Hazard and other stars. Tottenham wanted €70m for Eriksen in the summer while Real were also keen on Paul Pogba (h/t Daily Star).

Eriksen can negotiate with foreign clubs in January and move on a free transfer at the end of the season. The 27-year-old hasn’t been at his best but Spurs have also struggled this campaign.
