Spurs transfer news: Levy has offered Sporting €45m for Fernandes

Tottenham have bid €45m for Bruno Fernandes, according to Duncan Castles (h/t Daily Star).

The Portugal international has less than a week to seal a move to a Premier League club and Tottenham are in a great position to land the 24-year-old, according to the Daily Star.

The journalist was speaking on Reach PLC’s Transfer Window podcast and claimed Sporting have to pay compensation to Fernandes should they not accept an offer of €35m (h/t Daily Star):

“What I understand is that they have made an offer of €45m [£41m] for the player, which is very Daniel-Levy like, because as we’ve told you on the podcast some time ago Fernandes has a side clause in his deal that he signed last summer which allows him, if Sporting do not accept an offer of €35m [£32m] or more, to receive €5m [£4.5m] from Sporting in compensation.”

Castles added that Spurs have travelled to Lisbon to speak with the club and want to sign the Portugal international.

Fernandes can play in several positions and could even provide cover for Harry Kane.

The journalist claimed that Sporting are under pressure and Tottenham feel that they are in a strong position as they know the Portuguese side want to sell the 24-year-old.

Levy doing his bit in the transfer window

Levy is known to be a tough negotiator and it will be interesting to see how much we pay for Fernandes.

The 24-year-old was in great form for Sporting last season, and we could do with another goal-scoring midfielder in the team.

Tottenham have already spent big once in the summer, landing Tanguy Ndombele, and signing Fernandes would be a huge statement of intent ahead of the season.

Marouane Fellaini won’t be moving to Tottenham in January

Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has turned down the chance to join Tottenham in January.

The 32-year-old joined Shandong Luneng from United and has impressed in his first season. The lanky Belgian has seven goals and four assists from 22 games but has been linked with Spurs (h/t Evening Standard).

Fellaini has a deal for another two years with the Chinese club and told Eleven Sports that he is in contact with Jose Mourinho (h/t Evening Standard):

“Jose is special for me.

“We text each other, we call each other from time to time.”

However, the Belgian claimed he was happy at Luneng and wished Mourinho the best:

“He’s taken over at Spurs and he’s doing well. I wish him all the best, but I am good where I am now.”

Spurs don’t have a lot of money to spend

Signing a few players in the winter window could give us the extra push we need to get into the top four.

However, the Evening Standard claims that there will be limited funds for the boss to spend when the window opens.

“No one leaving in January” – Premier League manager confirms Tottenham-linked star isn’t leaving

Brendan Rodgers claims Tottenham-linked James Maddison won’t leave in January

James Maddison has been excellent for Leicester City this season. The England midfielder has helped the Foxes to second in the Premier League and has also featured for the national team.

The 23-year-old has five goals and three assists for Leicester this season and has been linked with Tottenham (h/t Football.london).

Maddison joined Leicester from Norwich City around 18 months ago, and his progress has been incredible.

However, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers believes that none of his players will leave the club next month (h/t Football.london):

“If you’re doing well, there will always be speculation.

“The boys understand that. Maddison has started the season very well, he’s been very productive. He’s a bright young player and he’s got a bright future.

“There’ll be no-one leaving in January. Categorically.”

Tottenham’s midfield problems

Maddison could work wonders for this Spurs team as we lack goals from the midfield. Christian Eriksen is a free agent in the summer while Giovani Lo Celso hasn’t played much under Jose Mourinho.

Eriksen has struggled for consistency this season while Lo Celso hasn’t been able to cement a place under the new boss.

Mourinho has to solve this issue soon as almost half the season is already done.

Danny Rose can’t guarantee his future at Tottenham despite Jose Mourinho’s appointment

Danny Rose has claimed that he hasn’t spoken with Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese took over at Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino was replaced by the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan manager after a poor run of results.

Mourinho has turned things around for us with just two losses since taking over, however, Rose spoke about his contract situation too.

The English left-back had earlier claimed he would leave when his contract is done and suggested he would do the same (h/t Sun):

“I’ve never had a conversation with him and I don’t see why I need to.

“As I said before, I’m here for the next 18 months so I don’t see why I need to have a conversation with the manager.”

Rose added that he wants to do well with Spurs and is aiming to finish in the top four.

Rose pleased with Mourinho at club

The Englishman added that he had the pleasure of working under Pochettino, and couldn’t believe that Mourinho was our manager now:

“I never thought I would be managed by Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.

“That’s credit to the club, how well they’ve progressed throughout the years and to get someone like Jose has been obviously brilliant.”

The left-back added that he expected Mourinho to aim for the top-four and the FA Cup too, given that he is a winner.

Rose has had his struggles at the club and it will be interesting to see if he is leaving in 18 months.

Ben Davies can do a good job as the left-back and is the replacement for Rose in the current team.

Tottenham keen on 28-year-old star struggling at Real Madrid

Tottenham interested in Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez

Tottenham are interested in Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez, according to El Chiringuito (h/t Calciomercato).

The Colombian spent two seasons on loan at Bayer Munich before returning to the Spanish capital.

Rodriguez was unable to cement a place at the Bundesliga giants and has struggled for minutes at Real too. The 28-year-old has only made four starts for the Madrid giants and is currently out with an injury.

The report claims that Napoli are also interested in the attacker and could make a move in the January window.

The Serie A giants were linked with him in January but could not meet Real’s valuation of the player (h/t Calciomercato).

A risky signing for Spurs?

The Colombian has struggled for form ever since he joined Los Galacticos after the 2014 World Cup.

Rodriguez was one of the stars in that competition, but things just haven’t gone his way since.

The attacking-midfielder is 28 already and adjusting to the Premier League isn’t a surety either. Spurs could do with more attacking options in the winter window, but a move for Rodriguez seems to be risky.

Christian Eriksen is a free agent in the summer and put in another average display at Munich.
