Hi Eds,

Any update of Spurs targets and outgoings?
Read from the Man City sight that no Walker or Rose are first choices for them.

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Walker is of interest to them but don't be shocked to see Piero Ausilio proposing a deal including Ivan Perisic and cash for Kyle Walker and Toby Alderweireld.}

Ed, well that will get rejected straight away.

Ed002, Is perisic a player Spurs are interested in?
I know he is a very good player, but he doesn't seem a very Spurs' / Levy type player, given his age and position.


{Ed002's Note - Perisic is a player that Spurs have shown an interest in - Inter need money fast so they are hawking him around - but at a price well above what most clubs will pay.}

We tried to sign Perisic last summer.

Thanks Ed,

Would you have time for a broader update regarding targets and possible outs? I really hope we can keep most of the squad intact.

{Ed002's Note - I will try.}

Agree0 1Disagree

24 May 2017 19:24:42
Finspurs, chill out mate. Pochettino has already said, we won't sell any player that we want to keep.

Agree4 1Disagree

24 May 2017 23:46:54
Every player is available Ellis we all know that particularly at Spurs. £120m we would even sell Kane and £100m Alli or £50m Walker or Rose.

If a Champions League side offer to double the players wages and pay these sort of transfer fees then they are getting sold.

I hope we can avoid too much disruption and get the right players in to give us the depth. Walker to Man City is a done deal for £45m and it appears Pochetino is going to use those funds and proceeds to get Harry Maguire CB and Ross Barkley.

I have to say that would feel like good business as Trippier seems to have surpassed Walker with his offensive crossing abilities.

Agree3 1Disagree

25 May 2017 09:01:08
I certainly hope that some players aren't available. Poch has come out and said that we won't sell our best, so surely we intend to rebuff all offers for some.

I think Tripper hasn't surpassed Walker overall. We saw what happened to him again Martial. If only Tripper had Walkers pace.

Agree1 2Disagree

25 May 2017 09:42:50
Spurs23, whilst I agree with you about Walkers pace being far superior to Trippiers, I think using the Martial performance is a little unfair on Trippier as Martial is quicker than your average winger and Trippier is no slouch and will not face players of Martials pace every week, IMO trippier is a better all round player than Walker and if he leaves he will be found out at a top team who will not tolerate lapses in concentration or his injuries when they try and player him 2-3 times a week.


Agree2 0Disagree

25 May 2017 23:42:51
120m would not get Kane, no way. It would take a silly offer of at least 200m and even then i'm sure Levy would say not for sale. Its the same with Alli. I agree that some could be sold for massive offers, eg if someome offered say 60 or 70 for Eriksen then I reckon we would accept. Nothing surprises in football with all the greed so you can never say never but players like Kane will not be sold. Let's not get sucked in by all the full of it media who just love to try and sell our players in their pathetic papers or twitter accounts etc etc.

Other than Bale and Modric, who both went to thr biggest club in the world, we haven't really been a 'selling club' for years. Even Manchester United with all their money lost Ronaldo.

Lets have this conversation over Kane in say 3 years time, I bet you he is still at spurs. He loves spurs, all his family live local and take it from me he doesn't want to leave. This is not me wishing this, this is a fact from the horses mouth!

Spurs will be watching Davy Klaassen of Ajax tomorrow. We are very interested in him I've been told today.

Believable9 0Unbelievable

24 May 2017 23:51:09
I think Pochetino believes Davy Klaassen has the passing, vision and finishing to compete in the Premiership. The only weakness is his defensive contribution but at 24 he has the youth to improve this aspect of his game.

Agree3 0Disagree

25 May 2017 09:47:15
If we did watch Ajax last night, I don't think they will have been to impressed with Klaassen, Veltman or Dolberg as IMO they played very poorly against a bang average ManU team. I was ver yimpress by the 17 y/ o centre back De Ligt, who I think played very well given the importance of the game and his tender years, defiantly one for the near future, I also liked the look of Traore adn Davinson Sanchez.

Agree0 2Disagree

25 May 2017 21:01:03
Surely you are not formulating your opinion on one game. Klaassen has been sensational this season. If we took Kane in the last two games he has look sensational but in the Champions League he was very average or even poor.

Overall we know that Kane is world class, and I think Klaassen could be the niece big thing if we afford him his chance.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2017 23:49:35
Klaassen is class! As is Davinson Sanchez, what a defender he is going to be. Hopefully he doesn't go to Chelsea.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2017 10:17:04
Oracle, all I said was if they watched the Eurpoa Final we wouldn't have been impressed as Klaassen along with several others were very poor, I agree Klaassen is Klaass (see what I did there) and has been very good this season, but it is always a risk taking players from Holland, Jannsen being a prime example along with numerous others. don't get me wrong you do get good players as well. I just feel there are more accomplished players available in a similar position and for similar fees that would offer more currently. We have Eriksen anyway for that position and if the Barkley rumours are to be believed he would be a safer bet than Klaassen IMO, depending on the eventual fee for Barkley. Chances are we will end up with neither.

Eds is there any update on the Bruma deal, as it seems to have gone very quiet.


{Ed002's Note - Bruma has a number of options. He will be considering what is best.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 May 2017 11:24:52
Man City deal with Walker apparently agreed today for Monopoly money. Let's hope we don't regret selling him, I have to say I liked his defensive contribution.

With Sigurdsson looking very likely to join Everton, perhaps Barkley will follow the Walker transfer.

Believable9 2Unbelievable

23 May 2017 22:37:24
This ain't true Oracle. Walker hasn't signed for anyone. He fell out with Poch because he wasnt listening and doing what Poch told him, got dropped and now the media are guessing. I would be very surprised if he left.

Agree3 0Disagree

24 May 2017 17:48:32
Perhaps Barkley will join spurs, you were definitely signing him in January according to you oracle.

Agree0 6Disagree

24 May 2017 19:26:25
Oddbod, wheres your next Rob Holding coming from? Could be a tough ask to beat off the competition again.

Agree4 0Disagree

24 May 2017 23:28:58
Gunnerbod perhaps you'll sign Messi, Ronaldo, Kane, Alderweireld, Dele Alli and Pochetino. Or perhaps you won't need to worry about going to your ballet class on Wednesday night for the next 5 years.

Agree4 0Disagree

26 May 2017 10:12:22
The Walker deal was completed on Tuesday and still no news, what is going on?

Man City have no reason not to announce their new signing, and one can only assume Spurs are seeking a replacement first to keep the price reasonable.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 May 2017 18:38:54
The only player i've heard of that wants to leave is Kevin Wimmer.

Believable19 3Unbelievable

20 May 2017 22:28:40
Walker has been omitted from the first team and must be leaving to join Man City. Fazio wants to leave like Wimmer. Clinton N'Jie has expressed his desire to join Marseille, and Danny Rose is clearly another target for Guardiola.

I believe Fazio, Wimmer and N'Jie are certain to leave. Janssen is possible if we get the right price. Sissoko should be sold but I fear we might keep him. Lamela is an ongoing nightmare which needs to end. Rose and Walker sound like they will be sky blue next season and that leave us with a significant overall required.

Barkley and Zaha look possible and Hary Maguire is a better prospect at CB. My concern is Mourinho is being linked with Ronaldo, Blae and Griezman, Chelsea with Sanchez and Man City with everyone. Even Arsenal are sniffing around Mahrez and Aguero.

Spurs have to think big and our bench and squad depth needs to improve. We have word class stars like Lloris, Alderwiereld, Wanyama, Eriksen, Dele and Kane but most other positions could be strengthened.

I would like to see Pochettino build the first team around those players, and have some real challenge in multiple positions.

Dembele is world class but cannot play 4 competitions and last all season with his stature. Dier is an essential player for next season to provide the depth and cover with Wanyama. Shaw is the man to replace Rose if we sell him to Man City. Barkley can provide the engine with Dembele. Zaha has improved and I sense he can kick on at RM, but we need some real stars.

Aguero would be ideal, Mahrez the flair we need at RM, Harry Maguire the energy and back up for our Belgium CB wall. Where is the ambition to challenge that the fans deserve. We have been the lowest NET spenders in the Premiership over the last 5 years, and whilst our manager has worked wonders, we are over achieving with the squad we have.

Harry Winks, Marcus Edwards and others need to go on loan to the likes of Newcastle and other promoted sides. In that note perhaps £20m for Sissoko back to Newcastle would be good for both teams.

The future looks great but we need to have a real go in the Champions League this time with the squad to challenge for the League and domestic cups. If this is the case our bench should look much stronger.

Agree13 2Disagree

21 May 2017 09:23:41
I thought Fazio and Bentalab were loan to buy and had both played the required games for the loan to be permanent?

Agree re: Zaha and Barkley, but that's a lot of cash and apart from one crazy year, we've never done big spend. That big spend didn't work out, so I doubt a big spend will happen in the near future.

I suspect Sissoko will be replaced (Levy magic surprise time? ) , and if Walker leaves then he'll be replaced as well, but I don't think we're going to go fm crazy and buy 3-4 players. Replacements yes, but possibly only one of Zaha or Barkley (if they don't sign new contracts) .

Lamela may be on his way out based on how Walker is rumoured to be treated once he wanted to leave, but that's a shame as he was showing how good he is.

Let's just say in Potch we trust.

Agree1 13Disagree

21 May 2017 09:31:56
Aguero? Lmao you can't give aguero the wage package he would want!

Agree0 13Disagree

21 May 2017 12:17:12
The only way you can attract players at Arsenal is by paying them £250k per week.

More than one way to skin a cat, city pick up the difference and we pay more as a transfer fee.

Yes the loan terms qualify a permanent move but the transfer fees are still paid, so I am not sure of the point you make!

Some of hear amounts may seem ambitious but is it impossible:

Fazio £5m
Bentaleb £16m (buy out clause)
Wimmer £5m
Sissoko £20m
Lamela £20m
Walker £45m
Rose £45m
Janssen £20m

£176m + £50m Champions League + £50m 2nd Place.
Levy said there was £65m in available funds still not spent so why is it hard to see real change.

Zaha £35m
Barkley £35m
Harry Maguire £15m
Mahrez £40m
Aguero £75m with Man City picking up his wage difference for 5 years.

We need to be clever and aim big. Buying players for £25m who are average is not the future.

Any truth in the Dani Alves to Tottenham talk Ed?

{Ed002's Note - There is interest in DA from a number of sides and he is a player Spurs may consider as a very expensive short-term stop gap to cover for Kyle Walker's likely departure - it makes little sense and would be a kick in the gonads for Kieran Trippier who I assume would then be driven to consider his own options. Alves wants to play in England and get some of your English Pounds in his bank account.}

Anthony Martial and Mika Seri are two players we are considering.

Believable19 3Unbelievable

Ellis - moving for Martial would likely require us giving someone up that they want . I've seen silly numbers in the media for Walker, Rose and Dier going to Utd in a package.

Agree0 2Disagree

15 May 2017 22:00:26
It doesn't work like that Yellow. Besides we have no idea what's going on at Utd, whether they want to keep him or he wants to leave etc etc. We want him.

Like other clubs we are looking at lots of players but those two added with the other ones i've mentioned before like Zaha, Bruma, Barkley, Mahrez.

Hi all, thanks to the eds as always for the site. Will Pochetino leave Spurs this Summer? If so, is Inter Milan a serious option?

{Ed001's Note - he has said, both publicly and privately, that he is staying. Having said that, I don't believe he has had any offer to consider from Inter as of yet, so maybe they could convince him to change that if they did come in for him. Personally I don't see it happening.}

Don't mind me lads, just popping in on my way to the Europa League gift shop.

Was wondering since there's a post about Pochetino. did Arsenal ever speak with him about replacing Wenger? He's obviously done a fantastic job at Spurs (sadly! ) and I hope we'd have a cheeky attempt at luring him over.

Agree0 9Disagree

15 May 2017 21:58:40
If, as he says, he wouldn't go to Barcelona because of his past with Espanyol - then I suspect the thought of him moving to the red part of north London is unlikely.

Gunner we assume you are playing dumb with your tongue in cheek!

Not funny, and simply pathetic!

I bet you think Arsenal can recover next season by replacing Wenger with Pochettino and then signing Messi, Bale, Ronaldo, Alderwiereld, Jesus and De Gea.

Face it my boy, Arsenal are a Thursday night club if you can jeans in to Wenger, Sanchez and Ozil. Without this trio you will probably get Moyes and sign a few clowns and become a mid table club.

Start thinking realistically you are the new West Ham or Crystal Palace of London.

Totally in denial, ice berg collision and still dreaming you are unsinkable!

Agree16 0Disagree

18 May 2017 18:21:56
No need to assume anything guys. Wenger is leaving, Poch is doing well. It's not unreasonable to ask if Arsenal had made any attempt to get one of the best coaches in the league right now.

What I would say to you is don't make the mistake of thinking that finishing above Arsenal for the first time in forever (or challenging for the league in the last 2 years) changes the balance of power. Until you win a title (or a few FA Cups) and consistently get into the CL places, you're still the 3rd best club in London and the 5th best in the league.

Arsenal, who you seem to think is below your club now (lol) has spent the last 10 years kicking the ball with one leg. We have bags of money in the bank not being spent. We are missing out on massive players over a few million quid in fees and wages. No other club has been run in such a moronic way. And still we've been ahead of you until only this season, and ahead of all the other clubs at some point too (even those who spent 500 million on players) . Once Wenger goes I am sure you will see the club Arsenal can be and you will realise this.

P. S. It's hysterical that a guy called The Oracle is so blinded by bias. And Messi, Bale, Ronaldo, Alderwiereld, Jesus and De Gea? No, because I'm not blinded by stupidity.

Agree0 18Disagree

18 May 2017 19:49:43
Gunnersfan1886, LOL. You need a reality check. With your logic you should be putting Man Utd ahead of us as well, a team that has won the Premiership a few times since you last have. You've won a few fa cups big deal, even lil ole spurs didn't take that competition seriously for years.

Your academy is producing bang average players and the so called top players don't see you as a viable option, especially as you will be in the Europa League now. Just accept the facts and move on. Wenger is staying btw.

Agree12 0Disagree

19 May 2017 10:03:42
Man United are ahead of us all. They're the most successful club in the country. Yes they have been atrocious recently, but that doesn't erase their achievements. Sure you have been excellent recently, but you've won nothing. You finished second in the league a couple of times. Even Liverpool have managed that and they spend most of their time outside the top four.

Our academy is bang average. Yes. Most academies are. That's why La Masia is considered special. You aren't exactly churning out Messi every season either. But we have some talented young players right now who have a good chance of being special (Nelson and Adelaide being the main two) .

Top players won't join us? We don't know that yet. They won't join you. We know that though. Two seasons won't make people suddenly think Spurs are better than Arsenal, unless they support Spurs.

Agree0 14Disagree

22 May 2017 11:25:37
Gunnersfan1886, you are in danger of becoming a Spurs fan from the 1990s. We believed we were a player or two short of glory, had the history and believed we were near to glory.

The truth is just look at the Spurs players even recently that we used to have in our first XI. Defoe, Kaboul, Mason, Huddleston, Dawson and Livermore all played for the teams being relegated this year. Bentaleb, Carroll, Sigurdsson, Chadli, Capoue, Gomes, Naughton, Lennon and those shipped out like Soldado, Adebayor, Chiriches, Stambouli, Fazio etc.

The truth is until you realise that half your squad isn't good enough you will never recover. Only Koscielney, Cech, Bellerin, Sanchez and Ozil look good enough. Players like Walcott, Giroud, Welbeck, Ramsey, Monreal, Mustafi, Xhaka and the like are all average.

Ospina, Perez, Debuchy, Elneny, Martinez, Mertesacker, Iwobi, Coquelin and Paulista are hellishly weak.

Wenger will lose the cup final without Koscielney, and then he will professionally walk away. Sanchez will leave to Man City or another payroll heavyweight, Cazorla will never be the same following the injuries at his age, Ozil will jump ship and Koscielney 32 next season along with Mertesacker 33, Cazorla 33, Monreal 32, Giroud 31 and a whole host of player 27-30 who are unlikely to improve much at this stage in their career.

Without Champions League you won't even be able to attract stars, so you'll end up wasting the transfer funds for Sanchez and Ozil on average talent similar to you core. With Wenger you will finally realise how much he did for your club, and Europa League might even be ambitious with all that change.

Allardyce and Palace, and certainly Everton, West Ham and Man Utd will all fancy taking Europa off you boys. Mid table next year for Arsenal as they finish 9th.

Wait and see, darkness is coming!
