Tottenham are thought to be keen on the Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks as per the Sun.

The 21-year-old has had an impressive season in the Premier League and it is no surprise that the top teams are interested in him.

The Cherries midfielder is a prodigious talent who is destined to reach the very top.

The attacking midfielder can play in a number of positions and he will add creativity and goals to the Tottenham midfield.

Brooks has scored 7 goals in the Premier League this past season.

Pochettino could develop him into a star in future. However, agreeing a deal with Bournemouth could prove complicated this summer.

The Cherries signed Brooks for a fee of £11.5 million last summer and they will not want to lose him so soon.

Even if they are forced to sell, they will demand a premium.

It will be interesting to see if Daniel Levy is willing to break the bank for the young midfielder.

He could be the long term successor for Christian Eriksen. The Spurs ace has been linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer.

Here is how the Tottenham fans have reacted to the links with David Brooks.

Tottenham are in talks to sign the Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso this summer.

According to AS, Spurs want the Argentine playmaker to replace Eriksen next season.

The Danish international has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

The report adds that Spurs are willing to pay around €60 million for Lo Celso.

The Argentine has had a very good season with Real Betis and he managed to pick up 16 goals and 6 assists for them.

Lo Celso joined Betis on a loan deal from PSG but the La Liga side activated a purchase option for him in April.

It will be interesting to see if they are willing to sell him this summer.

Lo Celso certainly has the talent to make it at the top level and Pochettino can help fulfil his potential. He will add goals and creativity to the Tottenham side.

Some of the Tottenham fans have already taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the midfielder’s potential arrival this summer.

Here are some of the fan reactions from earlier.

Spurs preparing offer for 23-yr-old, some fans react: ‘Would be a sensational signing’

Tottenham are thought to be preparing a big offer for the Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio.

According to El Confidencial (report translated by SportWitness), the Londoners want to sign the playmaker and they are preparing for an offer in excess of €100m for him.

Asensio has a €700m release clause and it will be interesting to see if Real Madrid are willing to do business for him this summer.

The Spaniard is highly rated at the club and he could develop into a real star for them in future.

Tottenham’s interest in the player certainly makes a lot of sense. Christian Eriksen has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and if he ends up leaving, they will need a quality replacement.

Asensio could be his ideal long term successor at Tottenham.

However, a €100m offer from Tottenham seems quite unlikely as it would shatter their club transfer record.

Daniel Levy has always been a shrewd spender and he hasn’t paid large sums of money for his targets in the past.

Having said that, the 23-year-old is a prodigious talent who can certainly justify the fee in the long run. Pochettino could help him fulfil his world class potential at Tottenham.

It will be interesting to see if Spurs can get their man this summer if the reports are correct.

Report claims Leeds’ response after PL club made formal bid for highly rated winger

Report claims Leeds' response after PL club made formal bid for highly rated winger – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Jack Clarke is a highly rated young talent and Leeds United are trying their best to keep hold of him despite interest from Premier League clubs.

According to reports from Football London, the Whites have turned down a bid from Tottenham Hotspur for Clarke.

Earlier this week, the Daily Mail claimed that Spurs had made an offer in the region of £10m for the highly-rated winger. However, Leeds have shown no indication of selling him, and have reportedly rejected Spurs’ opening bid.

Leeds should not sell Clarke 

Clarke is a promising young talent, and he will only get better in the coming years.

The offer submitted by Spurs is indeed tempting, and £10m is a lot of money, especially for a Championship club. However, Clarke is expected to play a big role for Leeds next season, and if the Yorkshire club are to launch yet another promotion challenge next season, they must keep hold of their prized assets.

The 18-year-old made four starts and 20 substitute appearances in the Championship for Leeds in 2018/19, scoring two goals and providing two assists.

According to reports from Spanish newspaper AS, Tottenham Hotspur are in talks with Real Betis to sign their highly rated midfielder Giovani Lo Celso in the summer transfer window.

The report claims that Spurs, who didn’t sign a single player in their last two transfer windows, are willing to pay a massive £52 million (would be a record signing for them) for the midfielder.

Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen has been linked with a move away from Spurs this summer, and Lo Celso could be a handy replacement for him, in case he leaves the club.

The Spanish newspaper adds that Spurs and Betis have been negotiating a deal for Lo Celso, and 20% of the fee will go to Paris St Germain.

The 23-year-old enjoyed a fantastic 2018/19 campaign for Betis where he scored 16 goals and registered six assists in 46 appearances.

The midfielder cost Betis £20million and the La Liga club are adamant that they won’t part with the player unless they receive an offer three times of that value.

However, according to Diario de Sevilla, Spurs’s opening bid for Lo Celso has been rejected.

‘We have a good relationship’ – Pochettino comments on Spurs summer target

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has spoken highly of Gareth Bale who could leave Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.

Bale’s future at Madrid is under doubt after Zinedine Zidane has made it clear that the Welshman is not in his long term plans.

The 29-year-old has been linked with a move to Tottenham with The Sun reporting that the north London club are interested in bringing back their former player to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer.

Recently The Times reported Madrid could even be willing to let Bale go for free. Bale was a hugely popular figure among the Spurs fans, and enjoyed a great time at the club between 2007 to 2013 before he moved to European giants Madrid for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £85 million.

Pochettino rates the Welsh winger highly and told the El Chiringuito TV that they share a good relationship. 

“He’s a Real Madrid player. But we have a good relationship. We played against him last year. I have good references about him.

“Everyone has a fond memory of him here, just like they do at Southampton. He still has three years on his contract at Madrid. It’s a situation that isn’t easy for him and isn’t easy for the club.”

Bale would be a cracking signing for Spurs, but he may have to take a massive pay-cut to return to his former club. During his time at the Santiago Bernabeu, Bale has won one La Liga title, and the Champions League four times.

Report: Spurs ready to spend £40m each on England international and Wales international EPL duo

According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing an £80 million double swoop for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson and midfielder David Brooks, with the two set to cost them £40 million each.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to improve his squad ahead of next season, and he sees the England international and Wales international as quality additions that can boost the side.

With Fernando Llorente set to leave at the end of his contract this summer, Wilson represents a top-notch back-up and challenger for Harry Kane, while Brooks is proving to be one of the best youngsters in the land after earning a PFA Young Player of the Year nomination following an impressive campaign.

Wilson scored 14 goals and registered nine assists in 30 Premier League appearances in 2018-19, earning a place in manager Gareth Southgate’s England squad for next month’s Nation League finals as a result, and he won’t hesitate to jump at the opportunity to play for a top-four Champions League-playing side.

Spurs face competition from Everton for the signature of the 27-year-old, and the opportunity to start regularly at Goodison Park could be more tempting.

Brooks, 21, finished the season with seven league goals and five assists in 30 games, and Spurs surely could use such impact in the attacking third.

Bournemouth won’t be keen to lose two of their most important players in one single transfer window, but Spurs parting with £80 million might leave them with not much of a choice.
