Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino might still be smarting from the 1-1 draw against Leicester at the weekend and with the Champions League resuming this week for the side, the Argentine will also have to do without his star striker Harry Kane.

Pochettino was speaking to the Daily Telegraph and he stated that Kane would not start against Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday night.

Kane has been missing from the Tottenham side since he picked up an injury against Sunderland and the side have struggled for goals. Vincent Janssen did score in the draw against Leicester City but the Lilywhites need more firepower if they are to do well this season.

Pochettino was quoted as saying:

“He is 50-50. Maybe on Monday he can be in the group. We will assess him and see if he is available to be selected, but he will not be involved in the starting 11.”

That comment from the manager is still good news for the Spurs fans as Kane could still be part of the team that faces the German club.

A big miss at the club this season

Kane has scored a couple of goals this season but Tottenham have looked bereft of ideas regarding their strikers. While the likes of Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min have done their bit in the attack, the lack of a genuine goal scorer is still hurting the London side.

Vincent Janssen still doesn’t seem to be sharp enough to play as the lead striker for Spurs. The Dutchman might be putting in the miles for Pochettino but the only result that many would look for are the goals.

Kane was the main man for Tottenham last season and more questions are being asked about the transfer policy of Pochettino. The fee spent on Moussa Sissoko and Janssen certainly raise eyebrows and the pair haven’t performed all that well this season.

The only bit of good news coming out this week seems to be the fact that Kane is making a comeback to the side. The London side really needs his sharpness in front and also his movement is second to none for Mauricio Pochettino.

Fans have to give him time as any player coming back from injury does need to get back into the groove and that will be the same case for Kane. The Englishman hasn’t started the season on fire and after the injury, he will need to work harder for the side. Janssen still needs time to gel in and if Kane can even play a few minutes against Leverkusen, it will be a morale booster for the side.

Spurs transfer news: Pochettino rejected the chance of Dybala-Eriksen swap

The Daily Mail reports that Mauricio Pochettino rejected a deal which would have seen Paulo Dybala replace Christian Eriksen at Tottenham.

The Argentine attacker had a below-average season last time around while Eriksen had spoken about taking up a new challenge after the Champions League final.

The Dane is out of a contract at the end of this season, and the report claims that Pochettino was hopeful that Eriksen would sign a new deal with the club.

Christian Eriksen

The manager refused to enter negotiations with Juventus, but the Italian giants are among the favourites to sign the Tottenham star alongside Barcelona (h/t Daily Mail).

Tottenham cannot sign any players now while Eriksen is free to negotiate with foreign teams in January given that his contract is expiring.

Spurs failing with talks

The report adds that Tottenham have failed with their attempts of a contract renewal for the Danish midfielder and Eriksen is not willing to accept a new offer from the club.

Paulo Dybala

Losing Eriksen for a free would be a major blow for Spurs and hopefully, we can get some money by selling the Dane in the January window, just as we did with Mousa Dembele.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham scout Rennes youngster Camavinga

The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham had sent scouts over to watch Eduardo Camavinga in action against Paris Saint-Germain at the weekend.

The 16-year-old put up an excellent display against the French champions and helped Rennes defeat the Parisians.

The defensive midfielder set up the match-winning goal and was excellent throughout the night as PSG struggled to get the better of Rennes.

Eduardo Camavinga

The report claims that Manchester City and Arsenal also sent scouts to watch Camavinga at the weekend, and Tottenham were interested in the teenager last season too.

The Angola-born midfielder has also gained the attention of Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid (h/t Daily Mail), and the youngster is already being compared to another French talent, Paul Pogba.

Camavinga has a long way to go in his career but he is one of the brightest talents coming through the French system.

Tottenham have already raided France this summer

Spurs made one of the best moves in the summer by landing Tanguy Ndombele, and the Frenchman has been one of the bright spots so far this season.

Camavinga could be a great addition to the team but we need to see how he does in the coming months.

Latest Spurs news: Lo Celso called-up for Argentina squad but Lamela omitted

Tottenham’s summer signing Giovani Lo Celso got a few minutes in the 2-2 draw against Manchester City and has been called up for the Argentina national team squad.

The former Real Betis and PSG midfielder featured for the side in their Copa America journey during the summer, and it will be interesting to see if he starts for us in our next game.

The 23-year-old is one of the most talented players from South America but needs time to adjust to the league after joining Tottenham on deadline day.

Although Lo Celso has done well in the past season, there was one surprise omission from the call-up list.

Where is Coco?

Erik Lamela has been one of the bright spots for Spurs this season and had two important moments in the draw against the Cityzens. The Argentine caught Ederson out of position for our first equaliser and it was his delivery that Lucas Moura turned into the net in the second half.

Lamela struggled for fitness in the previous campaign, but he could be an important player for us this season.

Tottenham didn’t sign any wingers in the summer and if Lamela stays fit, we should see more magic from the Argentine.

Many Tottenham fans were pleased for Lo Celso but were surprised at Lamela’s exclusion.

Spurs transfer news: Eriksen won’t enter contract talks despite £200,000-a-week offer

Christian Eriksen is out of a contract at the end of the season and the Mirror claims that the Dane has received no offers from other clubs so far.

The Dane is one of the best in the Premier League and Tottenham’s officials are confused as to why the midfielder isn’t sitting down for contract talks (h/t Mirror).

The report claims that Eriksen has been offered £200,000-a-week by Spurs, and that would make him one of the highest earners under Mauricio Pochettino.

However, the Dane wants a move to either Barcelona, Juventus or Real Madrid (h/t Mirror).

The European transfer window is open until 2nd September, and Tottenham can sell players to foreign clubs.

Eriksen is playing a dangerous game

The report adds that Eriksen’s representatives aren’t willing to discuss a new contract with Spurs. However, none of the clubs has made any inclination to sign the Tottenham star.

This leaves Eriksen’s future in limbo and he could remain at Tottenham beyond the window should a club fail to register a quality bid.

Dealing with Daniel Levy will be another problem for any club wanting to sign Eriksen, but Spurs have to play the game right.

Losing Eriksen for free would be a major error in our transfer business as we could get a decent sum from his sale this summer.

However, keeping him until the end of this season could see him join a Premier League rival, which would be a huge blow for us.
