We have received a huge boost in hopes of signing one of our long-term targets, Max Meyer. The Schalke player has been at loggerheads with the Bundesliga club about a contract extension and now seems set to leave the side in the summer.

The report from The Sun claims that the U21 Euro winner was not pleased by the current situation at the club and for his development.

Speaking to Bild (as quoted by Sun) the 21-year-old said:

“I declined the offer because I was not satisfied with my personal situation. I just saw no chance to develop.

“It would have been the wrong step, however, because the overall situation has changed. I am completely open on my future. Let’s see what happens.”

Tottenham had bid £38million for Meyer last summer but he turned them down but now we would be in a better place to bring in the talent whose contract at the club ends in 2018.

It would not be a surprise to know that Mauricio Pochettino is a big fan of the young German and Meyer would be a great addition to our side. We do have a lot of money to burn too, thanks to the £50million sale of Kyle Walker to Manchester City.

While we have not signed a single player this summer, breaking the bank to bring Meyer to London would be a great step for the present and the future too. We wouldn’t have to pay an exorbitant amount either for the 21-year-old, given he only has one year left on his current contract and didn’t do much last season either.

Meyer didn’t exactly set the Bundesliga on fire last season as he only scored one goal in the league from 27 appearances. However, he can play in a number of positions and that is something which would be beneficial for our side.

Pochettino has been searching from pillar to post to add players to Spurs. Meyer isn’t someone that has the numbers to match some of the big name players in the world but he is a raw talent that needs the right kind of atmosphere to reach his potential.

We can provide that to him but before thinking about the future, we need to get someone into the side as quickly as possible.

    Meyer is a good squad player. Not worth £38m even in today’s crazy market. £25m would be more accurate.

    He wouldn’t go for £25m, as he’s in the final year of his contract at Schalke.

    We “…need to get someone into the side as quickly as possible…” Why? To appease “desperate” fans? Even Harry Redknapp acknowledges that Tottenham has the best starting XI in the league. What we “need” are some quality SQUAD additions to: (a) push the current first XI to even greater heights; (b) to provide seamless, quality cover, enabling us to maintain high-level challenges on four fronts. I understand the frustrations felt when another day passes and no-one arrives but let’s not get ahead of ourselves and assume that anyone coming in is going to jump straight into the starting lineup, barring injuries. Even Neymar would have trouble displacing Harry Kane, at the moment, so there is no way that Meyer would move into the 11 ahead of Dele, all things being equal. That said, I hope we make a bid for him, or Kovacic

Tottenham could move for AS Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini in January

Tottenham are interested in signing AS Roma talent Lorenzo Pellegrini, according to Calciomercato (h/t Sky Sports).

The Italian has become a regular for the national team and can play in several attacking positions.

Pellegrini has also been tried as a defensive midfielder this season and has one goal and five assists to his name.

The 23-year-old can play as the attacking midfielder or out wide too and could make a move for him in the January window (h/t Sky Sports).

Christian Eriksen is out of a contract at the end of the season, and a move for Pellegrini depends on Spurs selling the Dane during the winter window (h/t Sky Sports).

Eriksen has struggled for consistency this season and has racked up just two goals to his name in the campaign.

The Dane was also left on the bench in our 1-1 draw against Sheffield United. Eriksen didn’t even start in the win over Red Star Belgrade in midweek.

Tottenham need to plan well for the future

Losing Eriksen on a free at the end of the season would be a blow, however, we need to plan for any possibility regarding the Dane.

We need to find a suitable replacement for Eriksen if he is sold in the winter window.

Spurs also have two centre-backs out of contracts at the end of this campaign. Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are free agents in the summer, and we need to plan for their possible departures too.

Tottenham face competition from Premier League rivals for Habib Diallo

Tottenham are one of four Premier League clubs interested in Metz forward Habib Diallo, according to The Sun (h/t Sky Sports).

The 24-year-old has scored eight goals in just 13 games for the Ligue 1 side. The forward has even represented Senegal during a recent international and is doing better than the previous campaign.

Diallo only scored one Ligue 1 goal during his last two seasons with Metz.

Newcastle are also keen on the striker while Tottenham and Chelsea have sent scouts to watch the 24-year-old (h/t Sky Sports).

The report adds that Leicester are also in the battle to sign Diallo, and a fee of £10m would be enough for Metz to sell their star.

It will be interesting to see how Diallo does for the remainder of the season, and a move cannot be ruled out if he continues scoring goals for fun.

Tottenham lack Kane cover

Spurs allowed Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen to leave in the summer without signing a replacement.

Harry Kane is our only recognised senior striker and we need someone to be back-up. Spurs could also do with a Plan B off the bench, but we have Troy Parrott on the books.

The youngster hasn’t been involved in several games this season but could get more minutes as the season progresses.

Tanguy Ndombele believes he will be fit for France by Sunday

Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele was substituted at half-time during in the 1-1 draw against Sheffield United.

Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that the Frenchman was struggling with an issue, and has to be subbed out.

However, Ndombele joined his international teammates ahead of the two-week break. The midfielder was quoted by L’Equipe suggesting that the problem wasn’t serious and he should be back soon (h/t Football.london):

“I had tests that said there was nothing serious, it was more fatigue.

“What is certain is that I am fit for Sunday. Thursday may be a little early, I don’t think I’ll be 100%.”

France manager Didier Deschamps also claimed the problem would be “resolved within 48 hours” and didn’t need to call-up someone else.

Ndombele doing well in debut season

Tottenham’s campaign has been far from great as we dropped points again. We have gone five Premier League matches without a win and sit 11 points behind fourth-placed Manchester City after just 12 games.

Ndombele has looked in good touch since joining in the summer from Lyon. The 22-year-old has two goals and three assists so far in the campaign too.

We need him to stay fit for long as there are some big games coming up. Spurs travel to West Ham after the international break and then face Olympiakos, Bournemouth and Manchester United in the next two weeks.

Christian Eriksen doesn’t believe contract issues have led to Tottenham snub

Christian Eriksen doesn’t think that his contract situation at Tottenham is the reason for not featuring recently.

The Dane is a free agent at the end of the campaign and has only scored two goals in the season.

Eriksen came off the bench in our win over Red Star Belgrade but didn’t get any minutes in the 1-1 draw against Sheffield United.

The 27-year-old is interested in a move to Real Madrid (h/t Daily Mail) but failed to leave in the summer.

However, Eriksen was quoted by BT saying that his lack of recent playing time isn’t due to his contract (h/t Daily Mail):

“I feel 100 per cent that Tottenham has complete confidence in me. There is not that big a difference, except that I play a little less this year.

“I don’t feel there is a connection between my contract situation and the fact that I haven’t played as many matches.”

Eriksen vows to cut out mistakes

The Dane spoke about some of his mistakes on the pitch and claimed he wasn’t taking the “right decisions” on the pitch.

Eriksen added that he wanted to cut out these errors and improve his sharpness on the pitch too.

The 27-year-old is away with the national team for a crucial Euro 2020 qualifier against Gibraltar.

A win will take the Danes to Euro 2020, and it will be interesting to see how Eriksen does against them.

We need the Dane to be at his best for the rest of the season too. Tottenham’s performances have been below par for most of the campaign, and hopefully, Eriksen regains his form soon.
