1-1 HT. Not entirely against the run of play, but Spurs have edged it. I expect a full-team substitution second half with Kane and Son on show.
Report Aspro July 13, 2022 2:00 PM BST
FT 3-6. Nice to see Skippy back; Richarlison probably needs a few more games but he did try. Kane and Son as good as ever, but I was impressed by the rookie, White, whose cameo appearance was impressive. Hopefully he'll get a bit more time in the games that follow, as I'd like to see him again with a bit more time. Parrot tried and probably had a chance of a goal if Son didn't go for the hat-trick header... he should know by now that heading is most definitely his Achilles heel. Nice to see the boys again and roll on Saturday.

Bought the Spursplay package, all seems good and quite thorough.
First half Gil and Sessegnon looked ok, Richarlison definitely needs a couple of games.
White is a fair player too, onwards and upboards, Seville at the weekend.

I'm seeing a lot different publications on the Sevilla centre-back, Jules Kounde (23) with a multi-swap deal offered. Apparently he's valued at £70m+ but PSG and Barca are also in the hunt, not forgetting City are keeping tabs on him too. I can't believe he'd choose Spurs but one never knows. A whole host of other names are linked today, but not to be taken seriously imo. The news that did jump out was Emerson to Atletico on a season long loan, which would let Spence in (surely he's can't be worse?). Papers are quoting that the deal on Spence has come down to a more reasonable £15m + Add-ons and is now close to finalising with the deal expected to conclude this weekend. Who knows? Perhaps Conte has spotted another South Korean too Grin
Report Aspro July 15, 2022 9:45 AM BST
Nothing more to report from yesterday, but as most of you are probably aware, Spence looks likely now. The Express are quoting that the final figure is £12.5m rising to £20m if all the add-ons are met. Whilst Kounde is still in the picture, it appears that City could swoop if Ake moves to Chelsea, which makes better sense.

There are a lot of rumours about players leaving, but nothing remotely concrete, just hot air at present. Still a long way to go and who knows, the club might yet spring another surprise on us although, as previously mentioned, perhaps White can push on from his interesting debut.

It doesn't look like we'll see Bissouma or Forster against Sevilla as both have reportedly contracted Covid where, under SK rules, they have to isolate for 7 days before being released next Tuesday. Shame as I'm looking forward to seeing the former.
Report Hanx July 15, 2022 10:36 AM BST
Pau Torres in 'Lo Celso-plus-cash' deal?

More speculative than 'the outsider in a three horse race' of course but if so, then surely that means Sanchez goes. Rodon looks set to leave (hopefully only on loan as I still have high hopes for the guy)

Best time of year this though - before we've even kicked a ball and hope still trumps experience!
Report Aspro July 15, 2022 2:54 PM BST
Spence having medical today, which should see him at the airport with a 'Welcome Back' sign when the rest return from South Korea Grin ESPN reporting (from sources) that the actual deal is £12.5m, + £6.5m add-ons; £2.5m of which is for future England duties.

Speaking of Rodon, it appears hardly any of us (on here and at home) want Rodon to leave. Surely we can't all be wrong? Hopefully the club can find a way to keep him onboard.

Spence finally signed, what a palaver! Too many rumours about Kane leaving now. Would he really go to Bayern? I'm not so sure.
Report sofaking July 20, 2022 12:38 AM BST
Nah, I doubt he'd go and I don't see Bayern offering the required amount to tempt Levy.  Still no takers for Winks, Ndombele, Lo Celso, Reguilon, Tanbanga etc. Confused
Report Aspro July 20, 2022 9:51 AM BST
It doesn't look like it, Levy's playing hardball with Everton for Winks with Palace watching the developments; Lo Celso a possible swap deal with Sevilla with Reguilon also linked; Ndombele in talks with Roma and Tanganga is in talks about a loan deal with AC Milan, but nothing concrete on any of them. I guess time is still on our side though.

On the flip side there has been a few snippets about Nico Zaniolo (Roma) coming in, which is dependent upon sales, but the interesting one that has been floating around for a few days is Leicester's Maddison for around £45m. Definitely an argument for their best player and more than capable of scoring as well as creating. I'm keeping a keen eye on that one, especially with him being English.
Report propunter1 July 20, 2022 10:30 AM BST
Antonio Conte admits it WASN'T his decision to sign Djed Spence so I don't expect to see him play in the upcoming season. It's an investment transfer for the future by the management.
Apparently Conte is preparing Lucas for right wing-back position. I think he will do well there.
Report sofaking July 21, 2022 1:18 AM BST
Yeah, apparently Spence was Levy's purchase. Seems to think he'll be able to flip him in a few years for mega bucks. Confused   How did that work out for him with Jake (or is it Jack) Clarke....
Report Aspro July 22, 2022 10:22 AM BST
Kane put on ice until next Summer with Bayern believing they may be able to capture him then. I think that is dependent upon this season and how well Spurs perform, but with no silverware and just a year remaining on his contract, Levy will have little choice but to let him go, although I wouldn't be surprised if Kane held on to leave on a free.

Gil a possible loan to Sampdoria but nothing more jumping out at me today. I'm hoping we can quickly sell a few and pursue the Maddison link.

Report Aspro July 25, 2022 1:56 PM BST
I'm expecting Lenglet, Romero & Dier to cover the back 3, with Davies (who has just signed a one-year extension) filling in as cover or even main if Lenglet isn't up to this league. Wing backs are anyone's guess at this juncture, but I've not seen enough from Sessegnon to make that position his own. Just my opinion mind.
Report FIGJAM July 25, 2022 2:14 PM BST
Davies signed a 3 year deal which keeps him at the club to June 2025.
The wing backs are the right age; if and it's a big if we sign some more players, which
I doubt, another centre back perhaps? But I guess the emphasis is on disposing of the surplus
which is taking time, one bright spot in a depressing scene is that Galatasaray showed an interest
in Ndombele who appears a limpet.
Btw Spence was signed by the recruitment team not Levy, he is all things to the club but not a scout.
