Harry Kane after the 1-0 win over Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg

Harry Kane keeps breaking records for Tottenham, and the latest one certainly is worth talking about. The Englishman scored the winner in our Carabao Cup semi-final first leg tie against Chelsea and has notched up 20+ goals in five consecutive seasons now.

Kane became the first Spurs player to do so, according to a club release, and the Englishman beat several former stars to the achievement.

Jimmy Greaves hit 20+ goals in seven seasons at Spurs but he had four 20+ goal seasons in a row before he hit 16 in the 1965-66 season.

Bobby Smith and Martin Chivers also hit four successive 20+ goal seasons but Kane is playing on another level.

The Englishman’s goal against Chelsea was his 160th for the club, and it moved him to fourth on the all-time scorers’ list.

The 25-year-old moved above Cliff Jones into fourth place, and the sky is the limit regarding what he could achieve here at Tottenham.

The Englishman had a wonderful World Cup with the Three Lions as he led them to the semi-finals. Kane picked up the Golden Boot too and was awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours list.

The next prize for the England captain has to be some silverware with Tottenham. Spurs are in a great position in the Carabao Cup and have progressed into the fourth round of the FA Cup as well.

Spurs transfer news: Real Madrid slap €50m price-tag on Dani Ceballos

AS (h/t Metro) reports that Real Madrid have slapped a €50m price-tag on Tottenham target Dani Ceballos.

The Spanish star is currently away on U21 Euro duty, and the report claims that the 22-year-old is expected to leave the La Liga giants.

The report adds that Madrid will sell the youngster to balance their books as they have already spent more than €300m in the market. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez rates Ceballos highly, but it seems that the youngster has not impressed manager Zinedine Zidane.

Ceballos started several games under Julen Lopetegui but Zidane’s return saw the Spaniard fall down the pecking order.

The Frenchman is happy to let the attacking midfielder go, and the report adds that Ceballos is a priority for Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The report claims that Spurs have already held preliminary talks with the Real Madrid star, while Arsenal and AC Milan are also interested in the 22-year-old.

Spanish star seen as Eriksen’s replacement

Christian Eriksen had spoken of a desire to face a new challenge, and the report adds that Ceballos is seen as the Dane’s replacement.

Real Betis star Giovani Lo Celso is the other player touted as Eriksen’s replacement (h/t Metro) and is also on international duty.

Tottenham star could end tough time at North London as Belgian giants are keen on the 25-year-old

Spurs transfer news: Belgian side Anderlecht interested in Vincent Janssen

Vincent Janssen’s horrible time in the Premier League could come to an end. The Dutch striker joined Tottenham from AZ in 2016 but struggled to make a mark in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old was one of the brightest talents in the Eredivisie before he moved to Tottenham, but things have not gone well for Janssen.

The Dutch striker only made 42 appearances for us across three seasons and scored just six times. Janssen also spent the 2017-18 season at Fenerbahce and could be off to Belgium.

Het Laatste Nieuws (h/t Football.london) claims that Anderlecht are interested in signing the 25-year-old.

Selling Janssen seems to be the right move for Spurs

The Dutch striker does not seem to be in our plans and getting rid of him as quickly as possible would be good for all parties involved.

Janssen just could not fire at Tottenham, and it is a little upsetting that he wasn’t able to complete the transition from the Dutch league.

Selling Janssen should have been a part of our transfer plan for a while, and we need to make some moves in the summer window.

Tottenham need to sign a cover for Harry Kane as the English striker missed chunks of the season last time around.

Tottenham offer £17m to sign Turkish league starlet – willing add 25-year-old flop in the deal

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham offer £17m and will offer Vincent Janssen for Elif Elmas

The Guardian claims that Tottenham are interested in Fenerbahce starlet Elif Elmas.

The 19-year-old is now a regular for the Turkish giants and is a Macedonian international.

The attacking midfielder scored four goals for Fenerbahce in the league last season and even played seven Europa League games. Elmas is one of the brightest prospects in the Turkish league and the report claims that we have offered £17m for the 19-year-old.

The report further claims that Spurs are willing to offer Vincent Janssen in any deal to land the Macedonian starlet.

Elmas can play in a deeper role and also played out wide last season at Fenerbahce.

Forgotten man to land us a youngster?

Janssen has struggled since arriving from the Netherlands and selling him off is the best course of action for Spurs.

Including him in a deal to sign a fresh face would be a decent bit of business too.

The Dutch forward made three substitute appearances for us last season and even struggled with injuries.

The 25-year-old does not seem to be a part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans and hopefully, we can sell him in the summer.

Janssen was also sent on loan to Fenerbahce a couple of years ago, and that could work in our favour as we are interested in Elmas.

Tottenham choose Leeds starlet over 22-goal Championship star as they look to finalise the deal

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham chose Jack Clarke over Jarrod Bowen for possible summer deal

The Sun reports that Tottenham are close to landing Leeds United’s teenage winger Jack Clarke.

The 18-year-old scored two goals and provided a couple of assists in the last Championship campaign, and was primarily used as a sub by Marcelo Bielsa.

Leeds missed out on Premier League promotion, but Clarke impressed in several outings and would be a great addition to the Tottenham side.

Football.london’s Alasdair Gold spoke to Leeds Live regarding the possible move for Clarke, and claimed that Tottenham eyed another winger too:

“They’ve been scouting him for a while now and from what I understand Spurs were looking at Jack Clarke and Jarrod Bowen closely in the Championship last season and it was the younger Leeds man who eventually became the sole focus of their attention.”

The journalist added that Clarke could be sent back on loan to the Championship side, but that depends on how much we pay for the 18-year-old.

Bowen would have been a good call too

The Hull City winger was one of the stars in the Championship last time around, as he scored 22 goals and provided four assists for the Tigers. Bowen is older than Clarke by four years and seems ready for the step up to the Premier League.

However, Mauricio Pochettino has a penchant to work with young talents and Clarke seems to be a perfect fit.

It will be interesting to see if Spurs do send Clarke back on loan if he is signed. The Englishman will receive a lot more starts in the Championship than he would by staying at Tottenham.
