Fan rant of the day: Tottenham moving for four talents from English leagues is the right transfer decision

Tottenham opinion: Tottenham’s plans to sign four players from across the English leagues is the right decision 

Tottenham are being linked with moves for five players from across three leagues, according to the Daily Mail.

Spurs haven’t signed a player since Lucas Moura joined us more than a year ago, but we were more than willing to sell Mousa Dembele to Guangzhou R&F.

This has left us with a lot of work to do in terms of transfers, and the Daily Mail adds that we could lose Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld due to their contract issues.

More attacking power for Spurs

Tottenham are being linked with Aleksandar Mitrovic, Jarrod Bowen, Carlos Soler, Jack Grealish and Wilfried Zaha, according to the Mail.

Jack Grealish

Looking at that list, it would be incredible if we could sign even three out of the five. Bowen and Grealish are up and coming through the Championship and should develop into quality footballers under Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine has a history of developing talent, especially England talent, during his time in the country and the pair could turn out to be another example of Dele Alli.

Bowen has been on fire for Hull City in the Championship while we failed to land Grealish in the summer (h/t Daily Mail).

The Aston Villa star even scored in the derby against Birmingham City after being knocked down by a supporter.

Jarrod Bowen is a target for Tottenham

Grealish has the potential to become quality in the coming years, and it will be interesting to see if Villa are willing to let go of their player should they miss out on promotion.

Premier League talent for Spurs

Zaha has been linked with Tottenham for ages, and he would make an excellent signing too. The Ivorian has the Premier League experience and is one of the most creative players.

The Crystal Palace man would not come on the cheap, but Spurs need to show intent in the market. Zaha has also played for a big club like Manchester United earlier but that move didn’t work out. However, with Pochettino at the helm, the Palace star should have a better time of it here.

Aleksandar Mitrovic

Mitrovic is one that catches the eye more than others. The Serbian seems set to suffer relegation with  Fulham and would be a great back-up to Harry Kane.

The Serbian is more mobile that Fernando Llorente and is great in the air too, giving us a different option up front.

Soler could be a smart signing from Pochettino, however, some of our imports from the other leagues haven’t worked out well.

The right signings for Spurs

Pochettino has tried his hand in bringing talent from overseas and has seen mixed results. Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Vincent Janssen stick out like sore thumbs while we have only seen glimpses of the quality that Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier possess.

Compare that to what he has done with the British talent at the club, and it provides a better reading. Eric Dier, Danny Rose and Harry Winks have all grown under Pochettino while Dele Alli and Kane are hitting new heights every year.

Bowen and Grealish are a pair of quality youth players coming through the system while Zaha and Mitrovic know the Premier League well.

They might not be in the top bracket of players we could get, but they have potential and could cost less than some of the other big names.

Spurs are moving into a new stadium, and that will affect our finances. We cannot battle with the likes of Manchester City or Real Madrid in terms of bidding for players, and have to be smart in the transfer market.

The aim for Spurs has to be finishing in the top four. Champions League football not only brings in revenue but also makes the club and even more attractive proposition to transfer targets.


Tottenham set to lose the race for Spanish star due to this reason



Spurs transfer news: Arsenal set to beat Tottenham in landing Dani Ceballos reports that Arsenal and Tottenham are interested in Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos.

The 22-year-old was one of the stars for Spain in their U21 Euro winning squad, the report claims that the midfielder could be sold in the summer after Real made several big signings.

The report adds that AC Milan and Liverpool are also interested in the 22-year-old, however, AS (h/t claimed that Spurs had agreed on a loan deal to land the Spaniard.

However, the outlet adds that Ceballos will reject a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and join the Gunners instead (h/t

The report adds that the interest from Unai Emery was the key to them landing Ceballos, and the Spaniard wants to play at the Emirates Stadium.

A blow for Tottenham’s summer plans

Ceballos would do a great job under Mauricio Pochettino, and it is interesting to note that Arsenal seem to be winning the race for the Spaniard.

The Gunners do not have Champions League football on their side, and the report adds that Ceballos wants to start games regularly next season.

The 22-year-old wasn’t picked regularly under Zinedine Zidane last season, and he might get more games under Emery than Pochettino. Spurs have only signed Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke in the summer, and can do with another quality midfielder joining the side.

Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Harry Winks had their injury problems last season while Christian Eriksen is out of a contract at the end of next season.

Not Trippier – La Liga giants interested in another Tottenham star as well



Spurs transfer news: Atletico Madrid interested in Christian Eriksen

Atletico Madrid might be close to landing Kieran Trippier, however, he isn’t the only Tottenham star they are eyeing (h/t

The Evening Standard (h/t claims that Christian Eriksen is in the sights of the La Liga side as they search for a playmaker.

The report adds that Real Madrid are also interested in the 27-year-old Dane, who has just one year left on his current deal.

The midfielder had claimed he wanted to take up a new challenge after the Champions League final, however, he still is a Tottenham player.

Atletico have seen several players leave in the summer, with Rodri joining Manchester City. Juanfran also exited the club, and the biggest transfer has to be that of Antoine Griezmann’s.

The French attacker completed his move to Barcelona recently, and it will be interesting to see who Atletico can sign before the start of the season.

Will Eriksen fit into Atletico’s style?

The Dane is one of the most creative players in the Premier League and would do well at a top club.

Atletico aren’t known for their intricate style of play in the final third, and it is difficult to see how Eriksen would fit into Diego Simeone’s plans.

Staying at Tottenham would be a better decision for the Dane than joining Atletico, however, it will be interesting to see if Simeone’s team submits a quality offer for the Dane.

It would be great to keep Eriksen at the club and extend his deal, but the next best option is to sell him to a non-Premier League club.

Tottenham committed to signing relegated star they see as Danny Rose successor



Spurs transfer news: Tottenham committed to signing Ryan Sessegnon

The Telegraph reports that Tottenham are committed to signing Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.

The 19-year-old is one of the brightest talents in the English game but saw his side suffer relegation last season.

Sessegnon was inconsistent at Fulham and ended up playing under three managers in the span of 12 months.

Danny Rose Tottenham

The English youngster is versatile enough to play as a leftwinger or as a left-back, and the report claims that Tottenham see the 19-year-old as a long-term successor of Danny Rose.

Tottenham’s Rose was one of our better performers in the previous campaign and started in the Champions League final against Liverpool.

However, the Englishman hinted he could leave in the summer after claiming that Tottenham sell off players who reach a certain age.

Fulham need to sell Sessegnon soon

The report adds that Fulham have to sell Sessegnon in the summer, with the English youngster having just one year left on his current deal.

Ryan Sessegnon

Sessegnon also prefers a move to Tottenham, according to the Telegraph, and hopefully, we can make him our third signing of the summer.

Tottenham could use someone of Sessegnon’s ability and the English youngster should grow under Mauricio Pochettino.

It will be interesting to see if Sessegnon plays as the left-back at Tottenham. His best performances came in the attacking positions, and we could use a quick and tricky winger in the team.

“Thanks for your commitment”, “Am broken” – Several Tottenham fans react as English star is set to leave for Spain



Spurs transfer news: Fans react to Atletico Madrid agreeing on a deal for Trippier

Sky Sports claims that Atletico Madrid have agreed on a €24m move for Kieran Trippier.

The English defender is set to be in Spain on Wednesday to complete a medical with the La Liga club, and the report claims that the deal could be finalised by the weekend.

The report adds that Tottenham were offered attacker Angel Correa in the deal, but Tottenham opted for a cash deal.

The English defender had an inconsistent campaign for Spurs last time around but no one can doubt his commitment to the cause. The right-back came off a wonderful World Cup campaign with the Three Lions, but could not carry that form into the club season.

Tottenham left with a minor problem

Spurs would only have Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters as the senior right-backs in the side should Trippier leave. That could be a problem given that Aurier’s previous season was littered with injuries.

Spurs could do with another right-back coming in and providing cover for the duo.

Many fans highlighted that Trippier just could not cut it at Tottenham while some were pleased that Spurs were getting a good deal for the Englishman. Some fans were supportive of Trippier’s decision to take up a new challenge, and here are a few reactions to the transfer:
