Spurs news: Tottenham’s International Champions Cup dates announced for 2019-20 pre-season

Football.london has shared the list of games Tottenham would play as we tour Asia as part of the International Champions Cup.

Tottenham spent last pre-season in the United States, but things will be changing in the upcoming campaign.

Spurs player some familiar opposition in their three games with clashes against Juventus, Inter Milan and Manchester United.

Tottenham played Inter Milan in the Champions League group stage this season while we faced Juventus in the knockout rounds of last season’s competition.

Manchester United, we know more than enough about them, will be our opponents in between the two Italian giants.

Our first game is against Juventus at the Singapore National Stadium on 21 July. We then face Manchester United in Shanghai on 25 July at the Hongkou Stadium.

The final game of this part of the pre-season is against Inter and will be played at our new stadium on 4 August.

We should see a strong Spurs team out for all these ties given that there is no European championship or World Cup in between.

Tottenham saw several players return from tiring trips in the summer. This severely affected our campaign at the start of the season and saw many players pick up injuries too.

Hopefully, such a scenario can be avoided in the coming campaign, and we push on for another great season under Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs transfer news: Steve Bruce eyes Tottenham defender Danny Rose

Newly appointed Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce is interested in signing a left-back, with Danny Rose catching his attention, according to the Daily Star.

The Tottenham defender did not travel with the side for the pre-season Asia tour and will try to finalise a move away from the club in the summer.

The 29-year-old could be the second full-back to leave Spurs this summer, with Kieran Trippier joining Atletico Madrid a few days back.

The left-back was the first choice last season under Mauricio Pochettino, and selling him would leave us with Ben Davies as the senior player for the position.

Bruce to monitor situation till the end of the month

The report claims that Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the 29-year-old English defender, and Bruce will wait until the end of the month before launching a £15m bid.

Newcastle have sold Ayoze Perez to Leicester City this summer, and Bruce expects a decent transfer kitty to be made available (h/t Daily Star).

Rose could still do a decent job for most of the clubs in the Premier League, and it will be interesting to see where he heads off to before the campaign starts.

Tottenham would still need to sign a first-choice left-back, and let’s hope the club lands a quality player for the position.

Spurs transfer news: Vincent Janssen close to sealing Monterrey exit

Football.london (h/t Sun) reports that Dutch striker Vincent Janssen is set to leave Tottenham for Monterrey.

The 25-year-old joined Spurs from AZ Alkmaar in 2016 for £17m (h/t Sun) but failed to light up the scoring charts.

The Dutch striker was sent on loan to Fenerbahce but had to deal with injuries while he barely played for the senior side last season.

The report claims that Janssen is set for a medical on Monday, and the deal should be completed in the coming days.

A tough time coming to an end?

Janssen was one of the top strikers in the Eredivisie when we signed him but things just did not work for him at the club.

The 25-year-old’s commitment cannot be questioned but he just could not perform under Mauricio Pochettino.

Selling the Dutch striker would take wages off the bill and hopefully, we can recoup a decent sum from the deal.

Janssen had his trouble with injuries and spent a good chunk of last season recovering from a foot problem. He did return to play for the U23s but did not make a big impact for the senior side.

Spurs would still need a striker as cover for Harry Kane, with Fernando Llorente having left the club in the summer, and it will be interesting to see who else we can sign in the summer.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham meet with Atletico Madrid over Eriksen’s sale

Spanish outlet AS (h/t Mirror) claims that Tottenham want €60-70million from Christian Eriksen’s sale as the Dane enters the final year of his contract.

The 27-year-old was signed from Ajax in 2013 and has become one of the best in the Premier League.

The Dane helped us reach the Champions League final last season, but wants a different challenge ahead of the new season.

Eriksen has travelled to Asia for the pre-season tour but the report claims that Atletico Madrid are set to bid for the Dane.

A Tottenham member also met with the CEO of Atletico, Miguel Angel Gill, to discuss a deal for Eriksen (h/t Mirror).

Atletico making moves in the window

The La Liga giants have been busy in this transfer window, having sold Antoine Griezmann and bought Joao Felix.

Kieran Trippier also joined them from Tottenham a few days ago, and the report adds that they could sell Angel Correa to Inter Milan.

They would need to reinforce their attack, with James Rodriguez and Eriksen being linked with moves to the Wanda Metropolitano (h/t Mirror).

Getting €60-70million from the Dane’s sale would not be a bad deal, especially if he is off to a foreign club.

Keeping him for another year runs the risk of him leaving for free while we need to avoid selling the Dane to a Premier League rival.

Spurs transfer news: Bayern Munich interested in Giovani Lo Celso

The Sun claims that Bayern Munich are interested in Real Betis star Giovani Lo Celso.

The Argentine enjoyed a great season in La Liga after joining Betis on a season-long loan deal from Paris Saint-Germain.

Lo Celso scored 15 times for the club in La Liga, and Betis signed the Argentine for £20m in the summer (h/t Sun). The 23-year-old is also being chased by Manchester United, while the report adds that Tottenham were leading the race at one point.

However, Tottenham are uninterested in paying £60million for the talented midfielder, and Lo Celso has told Betis he wants to join Spurs (h/t Sun).

The 23-year-old could play as an attacking midfielder and is versatile enough to play out wide too.

Tottenham see Lo Celso as an Eriksen replacement

The report claims that Tottenham see the Argentine as a replacement for Christian Eriksen. The Dane is out of a contract at the end of next season and has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Tottenham have also seen a £53m bid rejected earlier in the window for the Argentine, and Mauricio Pochettino wants Lo Celso at Tottenham next season (h/t Sun).

Lo Celso did well for the national side in the Copa America too, and it will be an interesting summer for him.

The 23-year-old would be a great signing for Spurs, but Bayern could move for him given that their other target, Callum Hudson-Odoi, seems et to remain at Chelsea (h/t Sun).
