Spurs Round-up: Galatasaray Attacker Asks To Join Tottenham, Dele Alli Creates Premier League Record

Published

Tottenham Hotspur cruised to the third spot in the league after halting Chelsea’s winning run at White Hart Lane with a 2-0 triumph. Twice Christian Eriksen loaded the ammo for Dele Alli, who rifled in a brace with deft headers.

Since we are already into the January transfer window and after a long time Chelsea are finally wrestled down, time for the on-pitch actions to take the backseat as plenty of talks are taking place off the pitch.

Turkish-Football.com (h/t by Squawka.com) have reported that Galatasaray attacker Bruma is keen on a move out of the club and favours his future at White Hart Lane. Mauricio Pochettino is said to be star-struck with the Portuguese winger, who has already racked up 5 goals and 5 assists so far this campaign.

The rumour has gained momentum as the Istanbul club is already sourcing around for his replacement, according to Turkish newspaper Hurriyet. In summer, the Spurs boss did reveal he wants to add pace and energy into his offensive cards and previous captures like Moussa Sissoko and Georges-Kévin N’Koudou have failed to get into his good books. The 22-year-old’s speed can be a lethal weapon in both attack and defence, a big uptick for the Argentinean’s current blueprint. Bruma has two years left on his contract and the north London club is said to have launched a £17 million bid to secure his services.

No doubt, the Lilywhites have found their scoring and most importantly their winning touch once again and Dele Alli has been a fulcrum of their sizzling form, 10 goals in 19 matches. The 20-year-old also made Premier League history in the London Derby on Wednesday as he is the first midfielder to bag braces in three matches in a row. The fans will be hoping that such match-winning performances will take place week in week out. While Real Madrid, who are heavily linked with the youngster, will be licking their lips to splash the cash in the next summer to reel him over to Spain.

Last but not least, Antonio Conte believes that Mauricio Pochettino’s men can go on to clinch the Premier League crown this season following Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat. The Blues still remain pretty at the top and hold a five-point lead over second placed Liverpool yet they will certainly feel the pinch.

“We knew that defeat could happen before the game but I think today I saw a game with a good balance and they scored a goal at the end of the first-half and the second goal in our best moment.”, said Conte.

“It is a pity to stop this run, but Tottenham is a good team, a really strong team and I think is for sure one of the teams that can fight for the title until the end. They fought last season and they can fight also this year.”

Besides that, both Liverpool and Arsenal failed to take advantage of Chelsea’s loss as they dropped points away from home. Looking at the course of the table at the moment and lopsided forms of the top 6 teams, it could all go down until the final week of the season to decide the winner.

Spurs, on the other hand, knows that Conte’s two cents make sense as they have close to a complete squad. They play Manchester City and Liverpool away within their next 5 league matches, if they could pull off similar wins, it could finally be their year.
