Diego Laxalt (L) and Giovanni Simeone (R)

The footballing world is still in shock regarding PSG’s move to sign Neymar from Barcelona. While people still reel from that mammoth spending spree that the French club will go through, life and football rumours must go on. After a summer where we have been linked with a number of players with none of them joining us yet, Il Secolo XIX via Calciomercato claims that we want to sign not one but two players from the Serie A.

Before we jump about and expect players from Juventus or AS Roma being linked with a move to London, the two players that could become Spurs stars are Diego Laxalt and Giovanni Simeone. Both are playing for Genoa and are considered to be great talents for the future.

Another Pair Of South Americans To Turn Things Around At Spurs

Although the pair aren’t on the same level or as popular as Ossie Ardiles or Ricky Villa, Laxalt and Simeone could be a couple of future stars under the right manager.

Laxalt is a winger and even though he doesn’t have the greatest goals-to-games ratio, the 24-year-old has become a mainstay for the Genoa side and is known for his pace and technique. The Uruguayan was even linked with a move to Chelsea last winter but that didn’t take place.

Giovanni Simeone is the son of Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone and plays mostly as a striker. The 22-year-old scored 11 Serie A goals for Genoa in his first full season and that isn’t the worst stat to have when playing in the Italian league.

The youngster can play either as a lone striker or as a secondary striker and will provide us with a lot of options ahead of the coming season. Simeone is also known for his work rate and pairing him with Harry Kane could lead to us having one of the most devastating and hardworking forward pairings in the Premier League.

Of course, this is still all up in the air as the report claims that we have asked for more information on the duo and the pair would be available for a combined fee of €35-40million.

We need to kick on and start signing players and even if we sign these two starlets, they would provide decent cover for our side which has an extremely strong starting XI.

Spurs transfer news: Steve Bruce eyes Tottenham defender Danny Rose

Newly appointed Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce is interested in signing a left-back, with Danny Rose catching his attention, according to the Daily Star.

The Tottenham defender did not travel with the side for the pre-season Asia tour and will try to finalise a move away from the club in the summer.

The 29-year-old could be the second full-back to leave Spurs this summer, with Kieran Trippier joining Atletico Madrid a few days back.

The left-back was the first choice last season under Mauricio Pochettino, and selling him would leave us with Ben Davies as the senior player for the position.

Bruce to monitor situation till the end of the month

The report claims that Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the 29-year-old English defender, and Bruce will wait until the end of the month before launching a £15m bid.

Newcastle have sold Ayoze Perez to Leicester City this summer, and Bruce expects a decent transfer kitty to be made available (h/t Daily Star).

Rose could still do a decent job for most of the clubs in the Premier League, and it will be interesting to see where he heads off to before the campaign starts.

Spurs transfer news: Vincent Janssen close to sealing Monterrey exit

Football.london (h/t Sun) reports that Dutch striker Vincent Janssen is set to leave Tottenham for Monterrey.

The 25-year-old joined Spurs from AZ Alkmaar in 2016 for £17m (h/t Sun) but failed to light up the scoring charts.

The Dutch striker was sent on loan to Fenerbahce but had to deal with injuries while he barely played for the senior side last season.

The report claims that Janssen is set for a medical on Monday, and the deal should be completed in the coming days.

A tough time coming to an end?

Janssen was one of the top strikers in the Eredivisie when we signed him but things just did not work for him at the club.

The 25-year-old’s commitment cannot be questioned but he just could not perform under Mauricio Pochettino.

Selling the Dutch striker would take wages off the bill and hopefully, we can recoup a decent sum from the deal.

Janssen had his trouble with injuries and spent a good chunk of last season recovering from a foot problem. He did return to play for the U23s but did not make a big impact for the senior side.

Spurs would still need a striker as cover for Harry Kane, with Fernando Llorente having left the club in the summer, and it will be interesting to see who else we can sign in the summer.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham meet with Atletico Madrid over Eriksen’s sale

Spanish outlet AS (h/t Mirror) claims that Tottenham want €60-70million from Christian Eriksen’s sale as the Dane enters the final year of his contract.

The 27-year-old was signed from Ajax in 2013 and has become one of the best in the Premier League.

The Dane helped us reach the Champions League final last season, but wants a different challenge ahead of the new season.

Eriksen has travelled to Asia for the pre-season tour but the report claims that Atletico Madrid are set to bid for the Dane.

A Tottenham member also met with the CEO of Atletico, Miguel Angel Gill, to discuss a deal for Eriksen (h/t Mirror).

Atletico making moves in the window

The La Liga giants have been busy in this transfer window, having sold Antoine Griezmann and bought Joao Felix.

Kieran Trippier also joined them from Tottenham a few days ago, and the report adds that they could sell Angel Correa to Inter Milan.

They would need to reinforce their attack, with James Rodriguez and Eriksen being linked with moves to the Wanda Metropolitano (h/t Mirror).

Getting €60-70million from the Dane’s sale would not be a bad deal, especially if he is off to a foreign club.

Keeping him for another year runs the risk of him leaving for free while we need to avoid selling the Dane to a Premier League rival.

Lo Celso scored 15 times for the club in La Liga, and Betis signed the Argentine for £20m in the summer (h/t Sun). The 23-year-old is also being chased by Manchester United, while the report adds that Tottenham were leading the race at one point.

However, Tottenham are uninterested in paying £60million for the talented midfielder, and Lo Celso has told Betis he wants to join Spurs (h/t Sun).

The 23-year-old could play as an attacking midfielder and is versatile enough to play out wide too.

Tottenham see Lo Celso as an Eriksen replacement

The report claims that Tottenham see the Argentine as a replacement for Christian Eriksen. The Dane is out of a contract at the end of next season and has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Tottenham have also seen a £53m bid rejected earlier in the window for the Argentine, and Mauricio Pochettino wants Lo Celso at Tottenham next season (h/t Sun).

Lo Celso did well for the national side in the Copa America too, and it will be an interesting summer for him.

The 23-year-old would be a great signing for Spurs, but Bayern could move for him given that their other target, Callum Hudson-Odoi, seems et to remain at Chelsea (h/t Sun).
