Cenk Tosun

Tottenham are monitoring the progress of Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun after the club’s officials were left impressed with his recent form, reports a certain Turkish newspaper Haberturk. Rivals Everton too are interested in the forward.

Tosun, who has also attracted fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace, was born in Germany and is a product of the Eintracht Frankfurt youth setup. The striker decided to move to Turkey by joining Gaziantepspor at an early age and by the 2014-15 season, he caught the attention of Besiktas and moved to the Turkish giants. The striker has been a revelation since joining Besiktas and has already scored 36 goals in close to 90 appearances.

The aforementioned source has claimed that both Spurs and Everton have already spoken to the player’s representatives and we can expect an official approach in the January window or during the next summer window.

Furthermore, Tosun, who represented Germany at the U-21 level before switching his allegiance to Turkey, was reportedly close to moving to Crystal Palace during the summer and Newcastle were thought to be in the fray as well, but no move materialised for some reasons. Besiktas, on their part, will reportedly demand a fee close to €26m, which actually is a peanut sum judging by how clubs spent this past summer.

Tottenham decided to send Vincent Janssen to Fenerbahce on loan this season and decided to go for Fernando Llorente soon after. The former Swansea man, however, has looked completely anonymous and is yet to score a goal this season, in any competition. It is not just about scoring, the Spaniard has not even registered a single shot on target so far.

Mauricio Pochettino preferred to use Son Heung-Min ahead of Llorente when Harry Kane was unavailable against West Ham and Man United and this is where Tosun could come into the picture. Someone who is equally adept with both feet and is strong in the air, the Turkish striker has already scored 8 goals in 13 games in all competitions and 3 goals in 3 Champions League outings. He has guided his side to the top of group G.

Signing him, however, won’t be a walk in the park given that Everton are pursuing him as well. The Toffees lost Romelu Lukaku in the summer and have failed to replace him adequately. And with Tosun having proven himself on the continental stages, the Toffees might go hard for his signature and might well carry an upper hand given that they can offer him regular first-team football which we probably cannot.

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.

26-year-old Tottenham star finds himself on Juventus’ radar for the January window

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.

Christian Eriksen Tottenham

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.
