Gossip: Spurs target Aston Villa striker and Barca misfit

Tottenham want a Premier League striker, but a La Liga defender didn’t want them…

 

TOTTENHAM EYE VILLA STRIKER
Good morning, Tottenham fans. Let’s see if we can take your mind off  with some salacious transfer gossip…

We’ll start with the good news. Spurs have apparently recognised that Ollie Watkins is a bit useful.

According to Fichajes, the Aston Villa striker is near the top of Spurs’ transfer wishlist as they look to give Harry Kane more support in attack.

But the England international still has almost four years remaining on the five-year contract he signed upon moving to Villa Park from Brentford for a fee that could eventually reach £33million. So Watkins certainly wouldn’t come cheap.

NORTH LONDON RIVALS TO CLASH OVER COUTINHO
The bad news: another battle with Arsenal is brewing. And if Spurs roll over to have their bellies tickled like on Sunday, then Philippe Coutinho would almost certainly become an Arsenal player in January.

Coutinho is available for a loan move in the January window, with the fire sale at Barcelona set to continue.

El Nacional says Barca are willing to pay half of Coutinho’s £100,000-a-week salary if they can find a club willing to take a punt on the Brazilian.

Apparently, Arsenal and Spurs are keen, with .

TORRES VETOED SPURS SWITCH
Now the ugly: Apparently, Tottenham had an agreement in place to sign Pau Torres in the summer.

But the Spain defender swerved Spurs in the hope of ‘a better offer’ coming along. That’s the claim from AS.

Torres had a release clause in his Villarreal contract meaning he could leave for around £50million but the Europa League winners were said to be willing to negotiate on that figure.

before they signed Raphael Varane, with Spurs said to have reached a deal with Villarreal for the 24-year-old.

But Torres said ‘thanks, but no thanks’, choosing instead to wait for a more appealing offer.

 

AND THE REST
Chelsea are again being linked with a £102million move for Matthijs De Ligt… The Blues face a fight with Juventus over Monaco midfielder Aurelin Tchouameni… Juve are also keen on Borussia Dortmund’s Axel Witsel and Sampdoria’s Mikkel Damsgaard… Man City are eyeing RB Leipzig midfielder Christopher Nkunku… Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto is a target for Leicester… Timo Werner wanted to join Manchester United last year but with no offer received from Old Trafford, he moved to Chelsea instead.

Neville: Spurs pair ‘look like they’ve had their balloons burst’

Gary Neville thinks Harry Kane is unhappy and “just not himself” after Spurs were soundly beaten 3-1 by Arsenal in the north London derby on Sunday.

Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka scored a goal each in the first half to give the Gunners a huge lead at the interval.

Son did get a goal back late in the game and Aaron Ramsdale pulled off a great save near the end – but .



Kane – who tried to force a move to Manchster City in the summer – was at fault for the Gunners’ third goal, while he nudged a great chance wide in the second half, and Neville thinks the England captain and Son Heung-min looked off the pace.

“He doesn’t look happy,” Neville said on Sky Sports. “The balls played up to him were long punts, (but) Harry doesn’t look himself in terms of his body language.

“He looks like he’s still carrying over the situation from the summer. (But) he could’ve still had two or three goals today and a penalty. There’s still a contribution, but he’s just not himself.

“Neither is Son (looking happy), I’m not just singling out Kane. Son and Kane look like they’ve had their balloons burst at a party as a kid. That’s what it looks like.”

Fellow pundit Graeme Souness added: “They’re two big players for Spurs. They have to make the difference when things are going bad. If it’s not them, who are they going to rely on?

“They look like a sorry group of players who feel sorry for themselves. It’s time for the good senior pros, it’s time for Harry Kane and whoever else may deem themselves a big player, they have to stand up and be counted.”

Former Spurs defender Ledley King insists he is not “worried” about Kane’s form as the 29-year-old’s attitude is always spot on.

King said: “I’m never worried about Harry in terms of his form, ever. I know his mentality is to get better and better every day and to be the best player he can be.

“He’s always going to score goals because he cares. But there’s no doubt he’s out of shape at the moment, out of form. When he’s not playing well, we struggle.”
