Spurs Transfer Rumours: Real Madrid ace on radar, Barcelona star’s move rubbished
Tottenham Hotspur are busy making the news even when the football on the pitch is suspended. We take a look at the latest Spurs transfer news and rumours of the day.
Norwich playmaker on Spurs radar
According to Football Insider, Tottenham are keen to bring in Norwich City playmaker Todd Cantwell this summer.
The 21-year-old has enjoyed an impressive debut season in the top flight. He has scored six goals and provided two assists in 29 appearances in the Premier League.
The youngster’s performances have seen him draw attention from both Liverpool and Manchester City. Spurs have already made inquiries regarding the player, having watched him multiple times this season.
Spurs among Premier League quartet monitoring Barcelona star
According to Spanish publication Sport (h/t The Boot Room), Tottenham Hotspur are among four Premier League teams who have contacted Barcelona over full-back Emerson.
The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Real Betis and is yet to make an appearance for the Catalan giants. According to the report, Tottenham have already opened talks to sign the young right-back.
Apart from us, West Ham United, Everton, and Newcastle United are also said to have made contact over a move to sign the right-back.
Right-back is a position that needs reinforcements at Tottenham. With Serge Aurier a volatile presence and Kyle Walker-Peters on his way out, Emerson would bring much-needed reliability to the position.
Spurs can sign the defender for £17.5m, decent value considering his promise.
Mourinho sets sights on ace French defender
According to The Boot Room, Jose Mourinho is keen to reunite with French defender Raphael Varane at Tottenham Hotspur.
The Real Madrid star is held in high regard by the Portuguese having worked together during his spell in charge at the Bernabeu.
Tottenham were linked with a move for the player last January only for it to come to nothing. According to the report, Spurs are set to rekindle their interest in the summer. Varane’s contract at the Bernabeu runs until 2022.
Tottenham move for Barcelona star rubbished
Spanish publication Marca (h/t Sportwitness) has poured cold water on Barcelona star Arthur’s proposed move to North London.
Neither the player nor the Catalan club is keen to end their association. The possibility of a swap between Arthur and Tanguy Ndombele was mooted. But it does not appear to be the case.
