Kyle Walker

Reports (Evening Standard) have emerged that Catalan giants Barcelona are planning a move for Tottenham’s Kyle Walker as a potential replacement for the departed Brazilian right-back Dani Alves. Dani Alves left Barcelona and joined Juventus on a free transfer at the start of 2016/17 season, after spending 8 years in Spain. Since then, Barca have been using Aleix Vidal as his successor and things have not panned out well for the defending La Liga champions.

Aleix Vidal suffered a horrific leg break during their 6-0 thrashing of Deportivo Alaves when he was tackled by Theo Hernandez in the 87th minute. Barcelona have confirmed that the player will be out until next season and have since played Sergi Roberto in a right back role.

With Vidal expected to be out for a long time, Barcelona are reportedly planning a move for Tottenham Hotspur regular Kyle Walker. The English full-back has made 212 appearances for the club and is only 26-years old. He joined the club as a youngster and has gone on to establish himself as their first choice right back over the years. He has been in terrific form for Spurs this season and that has not gone unnoticed with Manchester clubs targeting the fullback as well (The Sun).

Walker signed a long-term contract with Tottenham last year, which was a 5-year deal and hence it will be difficult for any club that is interested in securing the defender’s services to convince Daniel Levy to commit to a bargain price. There is every chance that the Lilywhites will play hardball with the clubs that negotiate a price for Kyle Walker.

Kyle has played his part this season in Spurs setting the joint-top in the least number of goals conceded in English top-flight, with the team having conceded just 18 goals this term. Walker’s ability to operate as a wing-back will come as a bonus and is an attractive proposition to have in a player. His pace, his ability to join the attacks and his contribution during the build-up play, are the factors that are considered really important for a modern full-back to be considered a threat and Kyle is exactly that.

He might be a perfect fit for the Blaugrana, considering that Dani Alves is not at Barca anymore. But it will be really hard for the club to tempt Spurs to sell the defender, and even more difficult to convince Walker to move to Spain, as he has been at London for a long time.

There is every chance that Walker may never move out of Tottenham as the club are making giant strides on and off the pitch and this might be his chance to etch his name in the history books of Tottenham Hotspur!

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.

“Mistake”, “For shame” – Some Tottenham fans can’t believe in-form star has been omitted by national side

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.
