Spurs transfer news: Castles claims Tottenham have made contact over Alves signing

Duncan Castles claims that Tottenham have made contact over a possible move for Dani Alves.

The Brazilian right-back is a free agent after leaving Paris Saint-Germain and has won several trophies at Barcelona and Juventus.

The 36-year-old has a ton of experience playing for some of Europe’s biggest clubs and Castles told the Transfer Window podcast that Barcelona is an option for Alves (h/t Daily Star):

“So [Barcelona is] one option for him, but as far as I understand he doesn’t have a formal contract offer from Barcelona yet.”

Castles added that several Italian clubs are interested in Alves and the right-back could play in Brazil too.

However, Castles believed that Alves wants to stay in Europe and has a desire of playing in the Premier League.

The transfer expert claimed that Tottenham are interested in him and are willing to change how things work at the club:

“And I understand that there’s been contact with Tottenham Hotspur about the possibility of Dani moving there in what would seem quite a strange addition for Tottenham, given that this is a club that’s focused on younger players, players whose value will increase, players they can get on reasonably cheap salaries.

“But bear in mind that Tottenham are looking to change things because of Mauricio Pochettino, for his demands to take the club to another level.”

Spurs have already spent big to sign Tanguy Ndombele in the summer, and have also sent Jack Clarke on loan after completing a move for the English youngster.

Spurs could sell a couple of defenders

Castles added that Tottenham are looking to sell a few players in the summer, with Serge Aurier and Kieran Trippier on the chopping block.

Alves is certainly an experienced head and would not cost a transfer fee, but he might demand high wages.

The 36-year-old is one of the best attacking right-backs in the world, and this is certainly an interesting link given that Pochettino normally moves for young players with potential.

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: 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.

Tottenham handed transfer blow as club can’t guarantee player’s exit

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.

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.

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.
