If we are really in for him, why wouldnt he favour us? The captain of the French national team, its next leading CM and the GOAT are at Spurs. Who do the Arse have? A senior French player who has thrown his toys out of the pram
Being reported now on french radio .......
Spurs have bid slightly over the asking price for Saliba with no loan back .
It’s believed to be €32 .
Roma In talks with Alderweireld for €29.
Almost a straight swap
A small payment this summer would ensure that Unai Emerykeeps the majority of his £40million transfer kitty to spend ahead of the new season while also landing an exciting prospect in a year’s time.
Tottenham, however, have more money to spend this summer thanks to their run to the Champions League final, as well as not signing any players for the two windows previous to this one.
Spurs are now ready to blow Arsenal out of the water with an upfront offer to prise the highly-rated defender away from their fierce rivals, a day after club captain Laurent Koscielny attempted to force his way out of the club by refusing to travel on the pre-season tour of the United States.
Tottenham have already signed midfielder Tanguay Ndombele and Leeds youngster Jack Clarke this summer, with the latter returning to Elland Road on a season long loan.
With Toby Alderweireld - who can leave north London for £25million before the final two weeks of the window - edging towards an exit and Jan Vertonghen having a contract until next season, Mauricio Pochettino is likely to need defensive reinforcements next summer
