Spurs Transfer Rumours: Juve join Milik race, Barca ready to loan former target
Tottenham are busy making news even when footballing action is on pause. We take a look at the latest Spurs transfer news and rumours of the day.
Juventus join Spurs in Milik race
Tottenham are set to face competition from Serie A champions Juventus in the race for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, according to a report from Tuttosport (h/t Calciomercato).
Milik has only one year left on his contract with Napoli and is expected to cost €35-40m. With Juventus and AC Milan entering the race for the striker, our club will have their task cut out to get this deal over the line.
Barcelona ready to loan out former Spurs target Riqui Puig
This one comes from Spain, where La Liga champions Barcelona are open to the prospect of loaning out young midfielder Riqui Puig (h/t Sport).
The 20-year-old had been on Tottenham’s radar in the past, with the club reportedly making an offer to sign him last summer. However, Puig snubbed the chance to join us, instead staying at Barcelona, where game-time has been increasingly limited.
To aid his development, Barcelona are now willing to loan him out. But it will be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to revive interest in the young midfielder.
Lazio throw spanner in Vedat Muriqi deal
Reports earlier week emerged that Tottenham had made an opening bid for Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi. However, as it turns out, Serie A side Lazio have also entered the picture to sign the Kosovan international, according to Turkish publication Sabah (h/t by Sport Witness).
Muriqi has been in in fine form this season producing a return of 15 goals and 6 assists in 28 appearances. There is some good news though, as the report adds that Lazio will not be able to match our offer.

Hakimi has been on loan at Dortmund from Real Madrid since 2018 and has enjoyed great success. This has seen him get linked with Tottenham, among a host of other clubs.
