Latest Spurs news: Several Tottenham stars return for first day of pre-season training

Tottenham’s pre-season training began today as several stars returned to Hotspur Way.

Many of our international stars are still away on breaks after their exploits with the national team.

However, Lucas Moura was back and seemed ready to go after a decent campaign last season.

The Brazilian scored some crucial goals for us in our Champions League journey, and it will be interesting to see how many he can score in the upcoming campaign.

Another South American who was seen was Erik Lamela. The Argentine struggled for fitness last season and needs to be available for the majority of the campaign.

Some English players make a return

Harry Kane and Dele Alli should return to training soon but we had the likes of Eric Dier, Kyle Walker-Peters, Kieran Trippier and Harry Winks returning to training.

Dier and Trippier didn’t have great seasons last time around, and a proper rest ahead of pre-season should have helped the pair.

Winks had his injury problems too and hopefully, the midfielder remains fit to partner new signing Tanguy Ndombele.

Harry Winks

Walker-Peters struggled for playing time due to Trippier being the first-choice, however, the English youngster could get more games for Tottenham this season.

Ben Davies, who could sign a new long-term deal with us soon (h/t Telegraph), also returned to training.

The Welshman could not replace Danny Rose in the second half of the previous season but should provide great competition for the left-back spot.

The players were also sporting new training gear ahead of the new campaign, and the target for Spurs has to be to win a trophy.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham interested in Newcastle’s Martin Dubravka

The Daily Mail reports that Tottenham are interested in Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

The Slovakian is rated at £12million, according to the report, with Aston Villa and Manchester United also keen on the 30-year-old.

Dubravka has been one of the best players at Newcastle over the past few years but they recently oversaw the departure of Spanish manager Rafa Benitez.

The report adds that Dubravka is unsettled with Benitez’s departure, and talks over a new deal have stalled at the club.

Tottenham want more competition for Lloris

Hugo Lloris has been a great servant of the club since his move from Lyon, and the report claims that Spurs are interested in more competition for the Frenchman.

The World Cup winner has made some errors last campaign but also registered some fantastic performances that won us games.

Spurs also saw the departure of Michel Vorm once his contract expired, and we only have Paulo Gazzaniga as the cover for Lloris.

The Argentine did a great job for us when called upon and it is interesting to see us get linked with Dubravka.

The Slovakian is one of the best in the Premier League and would provide great competition for the keeper’s role under Mauricio Pochettino.

However, we could do with players for other positions too. A versatile attacker is required as cover for Harry Kane while we can do with a full-back as well.

Spurs transfer news: Real Madrid cannot guarantee Ceballos exit

Marca reports that Real Madrid cannot guarantee the exit of Spanish star Dani Ceballos.

The report adds that Ceballos’ future has been up in the air this summer, and the player was expected to leave as Real wanted a big name signing such as Christian Eriksen or Paul Pogba.

However, the Madrid giants have kept an eye on Ceballos during the U21 Euro championship, and believe that a season with the senior team will help him become a better player (h/t Marca).

Ceballos was one of the stars as Spain lifted the U21 Euro title, however, he didn’t start too many games under Zinedine Zidane last season.

The report adds that Pogba’s move to Madrid isn’t a surety, and Real would not be able to sign better players than the Spaniard, at a reasonable price.

Ceballos and Zidane have to work on their relationship, according to the report, and Tottenham have been linked with the 22-year-old during the summer.

AC Milan are also keen on the midfielder, and the report adds that the final decision on the player’s future will be taken once he returns from a break.

Interesting times ahead for Spurs and Ceballos

The Spaniard isn’t guaranteed of regular starts at Madrid, especially with the club spending big in the summer, and a move to another club could help him get more playing time.

Dani Ceballos

Tottenham could do with someone like Ceballos, however, if we keep hold of Eriksen, there would be loads of competition for starting places.

Tanguy Ndombele has to be a starter after his big-money move from Lyon, while Spurs still have Moussa Sissoko, Dele Alli, Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier on their books.

Spurs transfer news: Tottenham interested in Real Betis’ Junior Firpo

Spanish reports (h/t Football.london) suggest that Tottenham are interested in Real Betis youngster Junior Firpo.

The 22-year-old left-back impressed for the La Liga side last season with three goals and four assists in the league.

The Spanish defender was also a part of the U21 side that lifted the Euros in the summer after defeating Germany in the final.

Junior Firpo in action for Spain

Firpo can also play as a left-midfielder and the report adds that he is attracting interest from several parties in Europe.

The report claims that a €30million bid could be enough to see the deal take place, however, Firpo wants to remain in Spain.

Spurs could do with a versatile left-back

Firpo has a bright future ahead of him and Tottenham could do with his versatility. The 22-year-old can provide cover for our wide players, and also challenge Danny Rose and Ben Davies for a first-team spot.

Davies had an average campaign the last time around while Rose was the first-choice left-back.

Ben Davies

The English defender was one of our better players throughout the previous season however, Rose hinted that Tottenham have a policy of selling players who reach a certain age (h/t Evening Standard).

Tottenham need to spend in this summer window and Tanguy Ndombele alone is not going to be enough to take us to the next level.

Jack Clarke has also joined, but the English winger has returned to Leeds on a season-long loan deal.

Spurs transfer news: Eriksen and Alderweireld set to travel for Asia tour

The Evening Standard reports that Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen are set to travel to Singapore for Tottenham’s pre-season despite concerns regarding their futures.

The report claims that the pair will travel with the team on Wednesday and play their first game of the pre-season against Juventus on Sunday.

Tottenham then play Manchester United in Shanghai on 25th July, and the report claims that the pair will be named for the Asia tour.

The report claims that Toby Alderweireld can leave for £25million before 26th July and AS Roma are interested in the Belgian.

Eriksen had spoken about taking up a new challenge, and the report adds that Real Madrid are keeping an eye on the Danish midfielder. The report adds that Eric Dier will miss the tour after undergoing a medical procedure recently.

A big summer awaits for both players

Eriksen and Alderweireld are two of the best in the Premier League and losing them would come as a blow to Mauricio Pochettino.

Finding quality replacements for them won’t be easy, and the start of the Premier League season is less than a month away now.

Eriksen is in the prime of his career and could improve in the coming years while Alderweireld recently hit 30, but should have a few more quality years left in him.
