Tottenham transfer news: Tottenham interested in La Liga star Giovani Lo Celso

Argentine attacking midfielder Giovani Lo Celso has been incredible for Real Betis this season.

The 22-year-old has scored 12 goals in all competitions this season and joined the Spanish side from Paris Saint-Germain.

Marca claims that Betis want to sign the Argentine from PSG and will pay €20m for 80% of his rights while the French giants will hold onto the remaining 20%.

Although Lo Celso has been excellent for the La Liga side, Marca adds that they are willing to sell him for €60m.

The report adds that Real Madrid spoke with Betis over a deal for the 22-year-old, however, Tottenham are keeping tabs on the rising star.

A replacement for Eriksen?

Christian Eriksen’s contract issues haven’t been cleared up at Tottenham, and the report adds that Tottenham are considering a move for Lo Celso should the Dane leave Spurs.

Manchester City are also interested in the 22-year-old, according to Marca, and Madrid are looking to sign the Argentine in the summer.

Lo Celso can play across the front line and in midfield, thus providing scope to field him in several positions.

The 22-year-old is also known for his work rate and could be a great fit under Mauricio Pochettino.

The Spurs manager has a contingent of South American stars at the club, and that could be another factor for Lo Celso to consider if he leaves Betis.

Eriksen still is one of the best players in the world, however, if we don’t finalise a new contract with him, it would be best to sell him.

The report suggests that the Argentine would not come on the cheap and it will be interesting to see what our plan of action is in the summer window.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham looking to seal £22m deal with Napoli for Kieran Trippier

The Evening Standard claims that Tottenham could finalise a £22m deal with Napoli for 28-year-old right-back Kieran Trippier after the Champions League final.

Spurs reached the final after beating Ajax over two legs and face Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano on June 1.

The report adds that Spurs have blocked all negotiations until after the final, however, there is optimism from all sides that the deal for Trippier can be completed.

The English defender has struggled this season and the report claims that Napoli are aware of the tough negotiation tactics by Daniel Levy.

Getting £22m for a 28-year-old who hasn’t done well this season isn’t a bad deal, and it will be interesting to see if the deal does take place right after the final.

A big decision awaits Pochettino

The report adds that Mauricio Pochettino has a tough decision to make regarding who plays as the right-back against Liverpool.

Trippier had a tough time against Ajax over the two legs, however, he did well in the second half in our 3-2 win over the Dutch giants.

We could play Serge Aurier as the Ivorian has just returned from an injury. Kyle Walker-Peters is the other right-back in the side, but it would be a major surprise if the English youngster starts.

Trippier could play his final game for Spurs on June 1 if the report is true, and it would be great if he can finish his career here with a trophy.

Latest Spurs news: Harry Winks is fit for Champions League final

The 23-year-old midfielder last played for us in the 1-0 win over Manchester City in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League.

The midfielder was recovering from a groin injury and the report claims that the Englishman trained with Tottenham team for the entire week.

Winks’ return will be a huge boost for manager Mauricio Pochettino as he plans to win his first trophy at Tottenham. The English midfielder has played 39 times for us in all competitions this season, and found the back of the net once.

Pochettino to make a decision on another player

Winks should start for us if he is 100% fit, and the report claims that Pochettino has to take a call on Harry Kane’s role in the final.

The striker is also closing in on full fitness and trained with some of the players recently.

Kane and Winks returning to the team would be a huge boost, however, the pair is rusty and putting them against a good Liverpool team might be risky.

The Reds beat us twice this season, however, a cup final is difficult to predict. Spurs have a great chance of winning the Champions League and let us hope we pull it off.

Mauricio Pochettino speaks about his future at Tottenham and links with Real Madrid

Spurs transfer news: Mauricio Pochettino will decide his future after the Champions League final

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino once again spoke about his future and claimed it depended on what the club’s ambitions are.

The Argentine has led Spurs to the final of the Champions League and we are regular top four finishers under the former Southampton manager.

However, Spurs haven’t spent any money in two transfer windows while all our rivals have strengthened their sides.

Spurs finished a distant fourth behind the top two in the Premier League this season, and Poch spoke during an interview with El Partidazo de Cope about learning of Tottenham’s ambitions next season before making a decision (h/t Mirror):

“I will not make decisions about my future (until) after the final, it is important to know what the club’s future plan is.

“If we want to return to the Champions League final next year and fight with Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League title, we need reinforcements.”

The manager added that City’s ambition was to win the Champions League while we had to finish the stadium. Spurs moved into their new home a few weeks ago, and the Argentine also provided an update on Real Madrid.

Poch spoke with Perez

The Argentine spoke about his links with Real Madrid and admitted he had been in contact with president Florentino Perez:

“Real Madrid? I have no other goals if I am not training Tottenham; football takes you where you deserve. Ahead of the final, we will train at Valdebebas and sleep in a nearby hotel.

“I asked Florentino to let us sleep in the sports center, but he told me that I can only sleep there when I become the coach of Real Madrid.”

Thankfully, Real have already signed Zinedine Zidane as their manager though the Frenchman left before the start of this season. It would be crazy if they sacked Zidane to replace him with Pochettino, but the Argentine has been linked with Juventus (h/t Mirror) in recent weeks.

The Italian giants decided to part ways with Max Allegri despite the Italian winning the Serie A in every season in charge.

Spurs have to spend to keep hold of Pochettino and hopefully, that does not depend on us lifting the Champions League crown.

Latest Spurs news: Mauricio Pochettino hopeful of Harry Kane return for Champions League final

Mauricio Pochettino has provided some positive news regarding Harry Kane ahead of the Champions League final.

Tottenham play Liverpool in Madrid on 1st June, and Kane has been going through the paces in training after recovering from an ankle injury.

The English striker picked up the problem against Manchester City in the Champions League and has not played since April.

However, Pochettino was speaking at the Bilbao International Football Summit and claimed Kane should play a role in the final (h/t Daily Mail):

“He’s training and has entered the final stage of his recovery.

“We’re hoping he’ll be able to give us a hand – either from the start, from the bench or if not, then by giving us moral support in the dressing room – but we are optimistic that he’ll be able to help us on the pitch.”

More players return to training for Tottenham

Kane returning to first-team would be a huge boost ahead of the final. A couple of other players were pictured training with the Englishman recently.

Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen are also carrying knocks and it is imperative that at least one of the centre-backs is fit to play alongside Toby Alderweireld.

Harry Winks was also seen in training as he continues his rehab from groin surgery, and the players still have a week to get into shape for the final.
