Spurs opinion: Aaron Wan-Bissaka would make a great signing for Mauricio Pochettino’s

Crystal Palace have had another decent season where they are more or less guaranteed safety under Roy Hodgson.

The Eagles came up with an impressive 1-0 win over Newcastle United at St. James’ Park and had Wilfried Zaha to thank for winning an important penalty.

While Palace took the lead via the penalty, they have had another player who has shone this season.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been great for the Eagles at right-back, and could possibly be one of the best in his position outside the top six teams.

The 21-year-old has played 30 Premier League games this season and has two assists to his name, and reports suggest that Tottenham are interested in Wan-Bissaka.

The report goes on to suggest that we could even sell one of our senior right-backs, Kieran Trippier or Serge Aurier, for the Englishman and Wan-Bissaka already seems set for great things in the future.

Wan-Bissaka doing his bit for Palace

The 21-year-old has been doing most things right this season and the stats back that up. Wan-Bissaka plays for a team defends more than Tottenham, however, he has been impressive while doing his bit.

According to WhoScored, the English right-back averages 3.8 tackles a game in the Premier League while Aurier and Trippier average 2.5.

Wan-Bissaka also averages more than double the interceptions when compared to our defenders, with 2.2 per game.

The English defender also fouls less when compared to the more experienced Trippier and Aurier, and has more clearances (on average) than the pair.

His offensive output isn’t as stellar as Trippier, as the Spurs right-back has more assists this season, and also has a goal to his name. Trippier averages 1.8 key passes per game while Wan-Bissaka only provides 0.4.

The youngster’s pass percentage is also below that of Trippier’s, and it seems Wan-Bissaka has to improve upon his game in the final third.

Hodgson had claimed that he wants to keep hold of both Zaha and Wan-Bissaka but was realistic that the club could sell should the right offer come.

Tottenham have a young right-back in Kyle Walker-Peters, however, if we are looking to get rid of Trippier and Aurier, Wan-Bissaka seems to be a good bet for the moment.

Spurs need to think about smart signings, and Wan-Bissaka seems to check almost everything we need in a signing. He is young, talented, English and has the potential to improve.

Trippier and Aurier haven’t been great this season with the pair prone to errors while Wan-Bissaka still has years left to develop.

The Express claims that Manchester United are also interested in Wan-Bissaka, but Tottenham is the better destination for the youngster given our manager’s track record of giving young players a chance.

Of course, Wan-Bissaka has to play regularly in the first-team to improve and at the moment, he seems ready to make a move from Palace to another club.

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.

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).
