Tottenham Hotspur have long been linked with Galatasaray winger Bruma and the latest report from Turkish Newspaper Sabah confirms that Spurs have agreed on a €15million (£12.7million) deal to sign the Portuguese winger.

Bruma is considered as one of the top most talents in European football and has grown in stature in the past few years. He is now 22 and is quickly growing into one of the hottest wingers among the current generation of stars. He initially emerged as a wonder kid from Sporting Lisbon, before moving to Galatasaray in 2013.

Since signing for Galatasaray, he has scored 4 goals and 12 assists in 48 games for the club and has had loan spells with Gaziantepspor and Real Sociedad.

He won the Silver shoe award in 2013 U-20 FIFA World Cup and has also won the Segunda Liga Breakthrough Player of the Year award for the 2012-13 season. That is when he rose to prominence and has always been viewed as one of the most talented youngsters around.

This season, Galatasaray decided to keep hold of the winger and hence, he has featured 30 times for the Turkish club. He has scored 8 goals and has assisted 8 as well, after playing for a total of 2585 minutes across all competitions.

His exploits with Galatasaray have certainly attracted interest from all over Europe and it seems like Tottenham are one of the suitors too. It was claimed that Tottenham have completed a deal for the Portuguese starlet but Gala were quick to refute those claims and have said that there has been no contact from any of the clubs regarding a move for the player. Galatasaray have released a statement on their official website denying the story about Bruma moving to Tottenham.

Here is the translated quote from Galatasaray’s official website;

“Today in Sabah Newspaper, our professional footballer Bruma wants a 100% raise as a condition to make a new contract with our club and this request was rejected by our Board of Directors and a notice was sent to our player that the transfer proposal from English Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur was taken into consideration.”

“In this news that is not really interesting, there is no official offer to reach us, just as there is no secret agreement for the price of the club that has been named.”

Spurs have been linked with a lot of wingers, with one another prominent name being Wilfried Zaha. Tottenham’s struggle for quality in the wide areas has been seen quite clearly this season and hence, they are believed to be on the hunt for a top quality pacey young winger like Bruma and Zaha.

Only if Galatasaray are releasing a statement just to keep the deal as secretive as possible, then Tottenham fans can get ready to witness one of the most talented youngsters in Europe don the Whites of North London.

Tottenham handed major boost as Barcelona star picks up hamstring injury ahead of Champions League clash

Harry Kane of Tottenham scores against Barcelona

Football.london reports that Ivan Rakitic could be a doubt for our Champions League clash against Barcelona next month.

The Croatian was subbed in the 3-2 win over Spain in the Nations League and didn’t play against England recently.

An update on Barcelona’s Twitter account was posted and didn’t confirm when the player could be fit.

Should the hamstring strain be severe, the player could miss a month or more, and Tottenham need all the luck they can get in their Champions League group.

Tottenham might need to win both their clashes in the group, and they don’t come easy with us facing Inter Milan at Wembley before that big clash against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

Spurs gave themselves a lifeline against PSV with a late win, and we need similar heroics when we face the Serie A side.

Inter Milan beat us 2-1 and we will have to win by two clear goals or by a scoreline of 1-0 to get a better head to head than our rivals.

Barcelona have had their own struggles with a porous defence, and they conceded four goals in a shock 4-3 loss to Real Betis at the Nou Camp.

This should provide Spurs with some hope for the all-important clash and it will be better if some of the top Barca players can’t play the game.

Juventus have made Christian Eriksen one of their top targets as they try to add quality in the winter window, according to Tuttosport (h/t Daily Mail).

The report adds that Paul Pogba, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey are all targets for the Serie A giants, and a reunion with the Manchester United man is their first choice.

Should a move not work out for Pogba, Eriksen is the man Juventus believe they can get. The Dane has struggled with injury this season at Tottenham and has recorded a single goal for the side.

Juventus have made it a habit of getting some quality players on the cheap and Eriksen is yet to sign a new deal with Spurs.

The attacking midfielder has been missed this season but we have done a decent job without him. Spurs are fourth in the Premier League just five points behind Manchester City, and our next clash is against Chelsea after the international break.

Eriksen has had a tough time with an injury this season but has recovered from the abdominal issue. The 26-year-old played the entire 90 against Wales and is expected to play again before the end of the international break.

Eriksen scored 10 goals and provided 10 assists for Spurs in the Premier League last season, and a similar return would be great after an injury-affected campaign.

England looked set for more international heartbreak as Croatia were leading in their UEFA Nations League game.

The hosts then turned things up a notch after Jesse Lingard scored the equaliser and Tottenham star Harry Kane got the winner.

The England captain turned saviour for the side again, but another Tottenham man also turned the game on its head with his arrival.

Dele Alli didn’t start in the important clash against the Croatians but came on with around 30 minutes remaining in the tie.

The Englishman didn’t score or grab an assist but his attacking display helped England to the semi-finals of the competition.

The 22-year-old has struggled for goals and assists this season, but this performance certainly led to several Tottenham fans applauding the youngster.
