Latest Spurs news: Serge Aurier doesn’t want to leave Tottenham

Tottenham right-back Serge Aurier wants to remain at the club despite playing just 17 times this season.

The Ivorian recorded just six starts in the Premier League and suffered many injuries in the campaign. Aurier’s last game was the 1-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in March, but the right-back isn’t looking to leave Spurs.

Speaking to Canal Football Club (h/t Football.london), the Ivorian added he was happy at Tottenham:

“In football things can happen very quickly.

“For the moment I do not desire to leave Tottenham. For the moment, I am very happy.”

Aurier looking to make it back to the starting XI

Keiran Trippier is the first-choice right-back at Spurs while Kyle Walker-Peters also played a few times for us this season.

Despite the competition for places in the first XI, Aurier highlighted that injuries played a huge part in his season and was expecting a great end to the campaign with the Champions League final:

“This season I have been interrupted by injury more than anything else, but life is like that.

“We have done a good season and we are in the Champions League final, we are going to enjoy that, see how it goes and next year, my season is not finished, I still have an Africa Cup of Nations too.”

Aurier’s career at Spurs is yet to take off since his move from Paris Saint-Germain. The Ivorian has had some great games but needs to remain fit for a period of time.

Trippier’s form has gone up and down since the World Cup and Spurs could do with a reliable right-back that knows how to defend.

The right-back is only 26 and could improve in the coming season. Playing in the AFCON could be the pre-season workout he needs ahead of the next campaign, and hopefully, he comes back without an injury.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.

Spurs transfer news: Dutch expert confirms Tottenham scouted Donny van de Beek

Dutch football expert Marcel van der Kraan believes Donny van de Beek is keen on a move to the Premier League.

The 22-year-old was impressive for Ajax last season as they won the Eredivisie title and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Van de Beek scored some crucial goals for the Dutch giants, such as the winner against Tottenham in the first leg of the semi-final.

The expert added that the midfielder has been scouted by many Premier League clubs including Tottenham (h/t Express):

“I’ve seen scouts from Tottenham, Man Utd, Everton, Liverpool, Newcastle all at the Amsterdam ArenA looking at him.”

Van Der Kraan added that the Ajax star was watched several times, and would be the ideal back-up for Premier League teams.

“He’s an ideal player for the Premier League, he’s got the skills like most Ajax players, he’s got a big tank, he can run all day.

“But all these clubs have a priority list and van de Beek seems the perfect back-up for the big clubs.”

Van de Beek wants Premier League action

Van der Kraan claimed that the midfielder has the best chance of sealing a move from Ajax, and believed the Premier League might interest him:

“I think he’s keen for the Premier League, more than the German or Italian leagues.”

The youngster claimed that he had been linked with Tottenham in the past and that he was taking all of this in his stride (h/t Football.london):

“No, you have just got to ignore that and take it all in your stride. As a 17 year-old boy I’d started five games for Coventry and saw on my phone that I was being linked with Tottenham and Liverpool.

“With transfer talk you need to take it as a compliment that people are even talking about you, it won’t distract me.”

Maddison is participating in the U21 Euros and is one of the stars to keep an eye on.

Midfielder in no rush to leave Leicester

Jacob Steinberg of the Guardian tweeted regarding Maddison a few days ago and claimed that the English star is in no rush to leave.

The journalist added that Tottenham are interested in the midfielder, however, Liverpool, Manch0ester United and Manchester City are also keeping track of the 22-year-old.

Steinberg claimed that the Foxes could finish above United and Maddison has to choose the right club for his future.

Spurs transfer news: Journalist claims Christian Eriksen has rejected a move to Manchester United

Journalist Tom McDermott (h/t Sun) reports that Tottenham star Christian Eriksen has rejected a move to Manchester United.

The Danish international is out of a contract at the end of next season, and recently told Ekstra Bladet that he wants a new challenge (h/t Sun):

“I feel like I am in a place in my career where I might want to try something new. I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened at Tottenham.”

Christian Eriksen (C) celebrates with Fernando Llorente and Dele Alli

Eriksen is one our best players but prefers a move to Spain, according to McDermott’s tweet (h/t Sun):

“Told that #MUFC did ask about Christian Eriksen but it was a “no” from the Dane and his team. Spain is his first choice, but Solskjaer’s problem is attracting players.”

The Dane helped us reach the Champions League final last season, but we ended up on the losing side.

La Liga giants interested in Eriksen

The Sun adds that Barcelona and Real Madrid are interested in signing the Danish midfielder, however, Paul Pogba could throw a spanner in the works.

Marca (h/t Football.london) reports that Zinedine Zidane wants to sign the French midfielder from Manchester United.

The report claims that the Real Madrid manager is uninterested in signing Eriksen or any other midfielder as he sets his sights on Pogba.

This could be even better news for us as Eriksen could remain at Tottenham. Daniel Levy would have to work his magic and get the Dane to sign a new deal as losing the Dane for free would be a major mistake.

Spurs transfer news: Leeds United to receive massive windfall should Danny Rose be sold

Danny Rose has been linked with a move away from Tottenham (h/t Sun), and the Englishman’s departure could see Leeds United receive a sizeable amount.

The left-back joined Spurs from Leeds for £1m (h/t Leeds Live) in 2007 and could be sold for £30m (h/t Leeds Live).

This would be great news for Leeds as the Championship club will receive “10 per cent of any profit on top of the £1m” that he was bought for, according to the report.

The English left-back became our first-choice in the second half of the previous campaign, however, the Sun claims that Mauricio Pochettino is open to replacing Rose.

The left-back hasn’t always been consistent in the past two years, but still gave it his all for the club.

Pochettino targeting a younger star

The Sun claims that Pochettino wants to sign Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham as a long-term replacement for Rose.

The 19-year-old was relegated from the Premier League after just one season with the Cottagers and Spurs could pay £35million for the talented youngster.

Getting £30m for Rose would be an excellent deal given that he turns 29 soon.

Signing Sessegnon for just a few million more will be great as we would end up with a younger player with a lot of potential.
