Meyer, Keita, Aaron Lennon, Bednarek and Neto news


TRANSFER TALK


There have been many a report suggesting Spurs can pick Max Meyer up for £17.5 million (€19.89m - AUS$29.63m - US$22.63m), yet some lazy websites are suggesting a price of £30 million are way off the mark, that should read 30 million euros, which is £26.4 million. .

Meyer only has a year left on his contract so his transfer value is low and fellow Bundesliga side Hoffenheim only want to pay £13.2 million (€15m - AUS$22.35m - US$17.07m) for him. SportBILD are reporting that they have begun talks with the German Under-21 international.

Tottenham linked Naby KeĆÆta, the RB Leipzig midfielder who has caught everyone's attention this season: "Arsenal, Southampton, Manchester City and Liverpool contacted me last year, although I didn't speak to the coaches."

Aaron Lennon must be better now then since I've seen him in Lethal B's snapchat partying it up @ Nikki Beach, Marbella šŸ˜‚

Lech Poznan have confirmed that 21-year-old (22 next April) Polish Under-21 international (he has 8 caps) centre-back Jan Bednarek has flown to England to finalise his move to Southampton.

Portuguese newspaper A Bola report that Braga have rejected a £13.2 million (€15m - AUS$22.33m - US$17.07m) offer from Arsenal on 17-year-old (18 next March) winger Pedro Neto, they want £17.61 million (€20m - AUS$29.78m - US$22.76m).

Transfer Talk


TRANSFER TALK


Clubcall claim A Spurs target is to stay at Southampton, except the player they list is a 25-year-old (26 in August) right-back we have hardly been linked with, Cedric Soares. At least Sky Sports are reporting he isn't a target.

Talksport then bring us old news that Real Madrid reserve player, 23-year-old (24 in August) Mariano Diaz is wanted by Lyon, when the news a week or so ago was that he was on the verge of signing for them.

The Mirror then tell us Southampton, again, he given us a hands off warning over 25-year-old (26 in July) Virgil van Dijk, even though again he ia a player we are not looking to sign. Thy warn off Liverpool even though they can't sign him as they would be officially reported for tapping up and obviously found guilty. Why you are issuing a hands off to a club who can't sign him anyway, goodness knows.

As reported yesterday Carlos Alena is staying at Barcelona, reports that he was close to signing for Spurs are not true. It as simply websites not bothering to understand what was happening or understand the situation. Players look at the ir options, it doesn't mean they are about to put pen to paper.

'Our own' upholding values, shame the Police can't


TRANSFER TALK


Harry Winks is seen as a future England player by Gareth Southgate who has limited option to choose from in that midfield link role. He impressed Mauricio Pochettino and caught the eye of th England boss too.

His recovery is such that he may well be ready for the start of the new season. Much is being made in the media of Adrien Silva, the Portuguese midfield who is too old for us at 28 now and 29 next March, but with the emergence of Winks he isn't needed, especially given the fee being mentioned.

This is the final season before the 2018 World Cup in Russia, a country full of state controlled doping in a number of sports and a country who only have the World Cup thanks to the corruption that infested FIFA. It really is a travesty that the sponsors and FIFA are supporting bribery, corruption and doping by staging it there.

It doesn't surprise me, I have had my own dealings with the Police in Folkestone recently and they basically said they would allow the people who have committed crimes to get away with it and not support a victim.  So much for the sworn oath they take to be fair to all.

The matter will have to go the the Police Complaints Commission I can see, which raises the question, why is it the people in power can't be relied upon to do what should be the right thing? Why is corruption and crime acceptable to them? Do these people not have any standards? Low level crime pays according to the actions of the Folkestone Police Force, indeed if the Police are biased towards those who commit crime, then they are encouraging more crime. It doesn't make sense.

Harry Winks is like a breath of fresh air, as is Harry Kane. They give off an air of being nice clean cut, decent people, instead of the thugs that seem to inhabit the game. Chelsea has Ashley Cole shoot someone and nothing is done about it, he still maintained his position as a role model to kids.

Personally, the like of Harry Kane and Harry Winks are far better role models, indeed Tottenham as a unit under Pochettino are giving off the right sort of air. Would you want your children to learn from the foul mouthed tirades of Jack Wilshere, the gun toting Ashley Cole, the likes of John Terry and his family, Joey Barton, the list goes on.

Over in Spain the top three clubs have had transfer bans for illegal dealings, the biggest names in the game have been found guilty of tax fraud, with Ronaldo and Mourinho the latest accused, Liverpool have a ban on signing youth players thanks to their illegal activity and only recently they all but admitted they tap up players. I seem to recall us having to report Chelsea for the same thing. In both instances the clubs backed down to avoid being 'officially' accused and no doubt found guilty.

Over in Italy we have seen bribery and match fixing in the lower league and people in power not wanting smaller clubs to be promoted through the leagues. Football being a world sport should be upholding some sort of values, they seem to have gone out of the window to a large degree in today's society.

Tottenham, as a club, can't show potential sponsors they should support Spurs simply because others have unsavoury characters, but the club can promote itself as being of a certain image, of having certain standards, of standing for good.

If you run your mind through the Spurs side it is full of the type of characters to promote the 'decent person' image, Hugo Lloris, Mousa Dembele, Christian Eriksen. You can be top quality and be nice too, it doesn't cost anything extra to be a decent human being. Why do so many choose not to be?

For me it is hospital today, another hospital Friday and a blood test in a third hospital in between, three hospitals in a week, plus a visit to a doctor and none of it for my eyes!

I shall cling to the values of our skipper, of Mauricio Pochettino and of 'our own' in the Spurs of today.

Agent hawking Defrel around, Spurs wont be interested


TRANSFER TALK


Sassuolo attacker GrƩgoire Defrel is reportedly a target for Tottenham, West Ham United, Leicester City and Southampton this summer.

The 26-year-old  (27 next June) Frenchman possesses tremendous pace and technical ability, he can play in several positions, but you keep coming back to his age, it just doesn't fit our transfer policy. he is too old for a player with no experience in the Premier League. We couldn't wait two years for him to adapt, that is the risk we run. At this stage in our development as a club, that isn't what we need so I don't see that the reported interest is genuine.

Italian news roundup website Tutto Mercato Web are claiming that the player’s agent will be in London this week to discuss a move for his client. Reading between the lines that means he is hawking his client around and the clubs mentioned are club he would like to sell his client to, not clubs interested in buying his client.

These trips are quite normal, an agent will have a meeting with a club and will give them a sales pitch basically, for their client. It is highly unlikely we would be interested.

Not McGee, not Lopez, will Spurs N03 now be Adad


TRANSFER TALK


Carlos Javier Abad-HernƔndez Trujillo, simply known as Carlos, is a Spaniard who plays for Real Madrid Castilla on loan from CD Tenerife as a goalkeeper.

The 21-year-old (22 tomorrow) goalkeeper from Tenerife has finished his loan at Castilla report Marca and Real Madrid has decided not to enforce the £2.66 million (€3m - AUS$4.48m - US$3.4m) purchase clause agreed in his contract. Madrid will concentrate on the development of Zinidine Zidane's son Luca, 19-year-old (20 next May) goalkeeper.

He has three years left on his contract and with the Pau LĆ³pez deal falling through Mauricio Pochettino has moved his focus to Abad.

Tottenham pulled the plug on Luke McGee joining Peterborough and Barry Fry indicated that Tottenham would probably be selling him in August, which rather indicates we don't see him as the number three for next season. It seems it won't be Lopez, he is returning to Espanyol as the two clubs can't agree a fee. Will it now be Abad?

Alves rejects Chelsea and Spurs last ditch attempts


TRANSFER TALK



Goal Brazil are reporting that 34-year-old (35 next May) Brazilian international (he has 100 full international caps, scoring 7 goals) Dani Alves rejected a financially larger offer from Chelsea £6.16 million (€7m - AUS$10.3m - US$7.84m) per season to reunite with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, where he will earn £4.4 million (€5m - AUS$7.36m - US$5.6m) per season.

Spurs made a last minute attempt to sign hte former Barcelona right-back and Liverpool were pursuing him as well, but he has chosen City and should be signing for them shortly, when Juventus agree to release him from his contract. That may happen this week many sources predict.

Premium Sport report that Alves actually agreed to join Pep Guardiola in November last year and that he put pressure on striker Paulo Dybala to join City but he rejected the idea.

He is very keen to leave Juventus without any clashes, given he is leaving them after only a year. Juventis had signed him to a two-year deal with the option of a further year.

AleƱƔ looks set to stay at Barcelona


TRANSFER TALK


Having reported the Carles AleƱƔ story and seen others talk of Everton, Newcastle United and release clauses rising this weekend, I have done some digging and found a quote from him that suggests he is not interested in leaving Barcelona at all.

"I've already told my agents that I want to stay at Barcelona, I'm not listening to any offers"

Mundo Deportivo suggest Barcelona are fast tracking a renewal deal for the highly-rated midfielder and are assuring him he will see more first team action next season, having had him training with the first team this season and sitting on the bench frequently. Another option is to loan him out to Real Betis.

He hasn't made a final decision it seems and despite his agents close links with Pochettino, the youngster looks set to stay in Spain for another year at least. That will come as a disappointment as he is thought to be a star of the future.

if you don't go after these players you can't sign them and we certainly get linked with a few.

Spurs transfer stories from AS and Foot Mercato


TRANSFER TALK


Vincent Marcel is a 20-year-old (21 next April) French Under-20 international (he has 2 caps) who plays as a midfielder for OGC Nice in Ligue 1. The left-footed right winger is under contract until 2021 and made 10 appearances this season. he played for just 441 minutes, equivalent to 4.9 full games.

Tottenham have been linked with him with Foot Mercato suggesting we have offered him a 5-year contract to beat off competition from French side Nantes. The suggestion is that he has agreed to the offer in principle, nothing more. The two clubs haven't discussed price.

I wonder if this guy comes as a recommendation from new chief scout Steve Hitchen, who is said to have en encyclopedic knowledge of French football.


Over in Spain, newspaper AS report that Mauricio Pochettino wants 19-year-old (20 next January) Barcelona youngster Carles AleƱƔ Castillo, who is a central midfielder for their B side and a Spanish Under-19 international ( he has 8 caps scoring 2 goals).

The left-footed, Adidas sponsored talent has a contract until 2018 and has thus far refused to sign another one with the chances of game time limited. The newspaper say there are quite a few clubs following his position with interest but that Tottenham are best placed, suggesting we have told him he would be with the first team squad immediately and not the Development squad.

AleƱƔ has suggested he wants time to think what to do. He played 40 minutes across 3 appearances in LaLiga this season and 76 minutes in 1 Copa del Rey fixture in which he scored.

Why can't the press report the truth over Kane?


TRANSFER TALK


The pathetic press are at it again writing stuff that is bordering on dishonesty. Manchester United boss has apparently urged Ed Woodward to buy Harry Kane, even though he isn't for sale at any price.

The press have thrown £100 million at the story suggesting that is what Manchester United will offer, not that they know, a club doesn't tell the press how much it is going to bid. The independent say that will not be enough, something we already know.

They go on to say Real Madrid are interested but because Gareth Bale is having difficulties they are put off making a move for Kane. That is complete fabrication, the two are totally different players and each case would be looked at on it's merits. It;s pretty stupid suggestion to be honest.

The Independent claim it would take a figure nearer to £200 million for Daniel Levy to even be interested, which the Daily Express (Manchester United handed £200m challenge by Tottenham) deliberately misinterpret that by claiming Daniel Levy will demand £200 million, which isn't true. I'd like to see the evidence of it, the Independent don't say that.

Why can't the press simply report the truth.

Spurs interested in World Cup winning starlet


TRANSFER TALK


Tottenham are reportedly interested in 19-year-old (20 in October) Charlton Athletic starlet Ezri Konsa who is a right-footed English centre-back. 

He was part of the England Under-20 squad which won the FIFA 2017 Under-20 World Cup in South Korea recently. Konsa  made his debut on 8 June as a last minute substitute against Italy U-20 i the semi-final and sat on the bench for the rest of the tournament.

Under contract until 2020, this season he played 32 games in League One, 1 in the League Cup, 3 in the FA Cup and 3 in the EFL Trophy, a competition Spurs didn't enter. In all he picked up 8 yellow cards and can also play at right-back and central defensive midfield.



He was stunned by his England call-up which won't have done his confidence any harm at all. It will have been quite an experience for him, being highly-rated, yet not having progressed through the England youth ranks.
