Spurs transfer news: Tottenham have to pay close to £60m for Leicester’s James Maddison

Jacob Steinberg of the Guardian reports that Tottenham target James Maddison would cost around £60m. The English midfielder has done a great job at Leicester City this season after making the jump from Norwich City.

This was Maddison’s first season in the Premier League but the 22-year-old racked up 7 goals and 7 assists from 36 games.

Steinberg added that Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City are interested in the 22-year-old. However, Maddison isn’t thinking of leaving at the moment but the summer will be interesting for the Englishman.

Tottenham need to bounce back after their Champions League loss

Tottenham’s season ended in major disappointment after losing the Champions League final to Liverpool. Mauricio Pochettino needs to be backed in the summer as we have to sign a few players to strengthen the team.

There were several players who struggled to perform consistently for Tottenham this season and Maddison should increase the competition for starting places.

The creative spark was missing from our play in certain games this season, and Maddison could be the solution to that problem.

The youngster has time on his hands to develop further, and Pochettino could turn him into the next superstar.

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.

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.
