Wanyama confirming for the second time that he's joined us. Well I'm very chuffed about this signing. For 11 mill, it's a steal. With Poch's coaching ability, I think he'll be seriously challenging Dier for a spot come December. It also now means that we don't really need another CB this window, especially with Carter-Vickers impressing so much.

For me now, I would like to see either Batshuayi or Janssen come in, and then someone who can seriously challenge Eriksen for that LW position. Any ideas guys?
+2
It's official. Signed for £11m on a five year deal.
+1
Not a bad price.
August

13: Everton (a)

20: Crystal Palace (h)

27: Liverpool (h)
+1
And our last ever two home games at White Hart Lane against Arsenal and Man United.

"I want to thank Southampton for the great opportunity they gave me to play in England. As footballers, we harbour ambitions and a move to Tottenham Hotspur will give me a chance to play in the Champions League."
+3
I'm thrilled with that signing!!! It's rumored to be around 11 mil which makes me even happier.
+1
Eric Dier is the eight Spurs player to score for England in a major tournament, more than any other club. COYS!
+5
He looked so confused by the end result.

Good on him, for batting away the condescending question about inexperience.
+3
I never would have thought that out of the 5 spurs players in the team yesterday, Kane would be the worst performer; but everyone was oustanding, with Kane the exception. He is looking very leggy and needs to stop taking f*****g corners and freekicks. He needs his mojo back!!!

Linked to Vincent Janssen. Rode rejected us. A striker and a centre-mid look likely to sign soon for us.
+1
Wanyama would be the obvious one and ticks all the boxes. Only having a year left on his contract means he shouldn't be expensive and it's obvious Koeman has moved to Everton is because Southampton won't stop selling their players.

I'm happy with the Janssen link, not as big named as Lacazette of Michy etc. but at rumoured price of 12million, he's a much better financial deal. At the very least he looks a perfect understudy/back up to Harry Kane but has huge potential to be a star in the future:

Never seen him play but looks like he knows how to find the back of the net
+1
If Janssen is willing to take a back sit to Kane while he waits for his chance, then why not? The problem with signing a top striker is his also going to want to start and Poch doesn't play with 2 strikers.
+1
Poch has said in the past that he would be open to playing with two strikers. I'm in favour of this move, he's a quality young player with a very similar style to Kane.
+2
Right lads, here's my first and second 11 for next season if everything goes as I hope:

----------------------------Lloris------------------------------
-Walker-----------Alde------------------Verty--------------Rose-
---------------------Dier---------Dembele-----------------------
-Lamela---------------------Alli------------------------Eriksen-
----------------------------Kane--------------------------------

---------------------------Vorm-------------------------------
-Trippier--------Laporte------------Wimmer-------------Davies-
-------------------Wanyama-------Mason------------------------
-Son-----------------------Pritchard--------------------N'Jie-
--------------------------Batshuayi---------------------------

Bentaleb loan to Prem, Carter-Vickers loaned to Championship, Chadli sold 15 mill, Fazio sold 5 mill, Batshuayi 23 mill, Laporte 14 mill, Wanyama 10 mill (1 year left on contract).

Total spend is 27 million. Two other options for strikers are Lacazette and Janssen. Thoughts?
+1
Laporte for 14 mil? He has a €50m release clause.
+1
erm yeah Laporte for £14mill? you cant even do that on fifa or FM mate lol
+1
Lol how are you so oblivious to these big transfer rumors? Bilboa NEVER sell below their release clause. Only club I know that does this without exception. There are strong rumors pep will sign him for city despite him dislocating his ankle while in duty for France u21s a couple months ago.

Also do you think poch wants to play with 2 strikers? Kane can't be benched, Ali dembele Erikson and Dier must start. You won't get lacazette to sit the bench. Likely same for any expensive striker.
+1
Laporte? Paddy, what have you been smoking these days!

Firstly, we have no chance to sign Laporte. Secondly, you clearly have underestimated his value.

Batshuayi pricing is close enough(maybe 2-3 million more). Expect Wanyama to cost around 15, despite the only 1 year left.

Alright! Go back and find us a realistic reasonably priced RCB.
+1
Haha I didn't know about his release clause. I just liked the look of him last season, has he had a great season this year?

And SIF is that right? And his release clause is that high? What good CBs are there from other leagues right now (preferably under 22)?

And SIF its pretty obvious that we need another striker that is pacy and strong. Someone who can rotate with Kane. And yes, Poch has said in the past that he has no problems with playing with two strikers. I think Lacazette and Kane would make a devastating duo, also allowing for Ali (basically playing as a 2nd Striker these days) or Eriksen to be rested.

Ok I was mainly aiming this question at Spurs fans, so what other players would you like to see grace White Hart Lane next season?
+1
Defoe, Jenas, Kranjcar, and probably Assou-Ekotto, preferrably :D
+2
50 million euro release clause. rumors city will meet the clause this summer.

i agree you need another striker for sure but to get an experienced striker to sit the bench it would have to be someone not yet important at the international level, or already past his time.
+1
I'm quite excited about finally getting to see Pritchard hopefully fulfill his potential at Spurs!
+1
North, don't get your hopes up. If a good offer comes for him, we may sell him to get someone else.
+1
Killjoy
+1
Yes, unfortunately it's looking like we might move Pritch without really getting a chance to see him play.

Also, hello all! Been forevs
+2
laporte signed a new deal..65 million release clause, rising to 70 million next summer
Absurd!! Who would ever pay for him now?
Apparently Poch has been phoning Morata personally to try and get him to Spurs. Seems like another attempt by Poch to sign a player who is potentially out of our league. I'm loving the impetus being shown by Poch to make a world class signing. Recently it's almost been like he is going through my own personal list of dream signings.

I'm pretty sure we have Batshuayi is our back up option for striker. In that Poch is aiming high knowing we can sign the Belgian up if our first or second choice options don't pan out. It's the same thing that Spurs has always done except now we are aiming much higher. Young Batshuayi is not worried as he knows he has West Ham as his own back up option if Spurs lose their interest. West Ham themselves would have their own back up option if we indeed do sign the Belgian.

Essentially it's almost like a draft system where we have about 3rd or 4th pick in this years transfer draft and West Ham has the 6th pick in the draft. The fact that we are in the EPL and Champs League gives us the equivalent of a lottery pick but we still don't have the wages to get a first or second pick. I think a third or 4th pick is a great place to be and we really need to be targeting world class talent this window. Remember Jordan was a third pick in the NBA.

MY DREAM SIGNINGS

Embolo - 15 mil
Pereya - 12 mil
Wanyama - 20 mil
Bartra - 6 mil

Total spend of 53 million pounds and it fills the 4 places I believe we need to fill this window. Look at my article in essays for yids.

Embolo: Youngster who can understudy to Kane as a lone striker or play on the right. Bags of pace and potential. Already has European experience and has thrived under big lights and expectations.

Pereya. Quick technical player who can play in either Dembele's or Ali's position. He is also very competent on the right of midfield. In all honestly I could replace Pereya with quite few different players. I just want Poch to sign a player with similar qualities and the papers are linking us to this guy atm. He is only 25 but has valuable champs league experience to add to the squad.

Wanyama. In my opinion the most important signing we can make. Our starting midfield 3 is very strong physically but our backs ups are pip squeeks in comparison. Wanyama is a freaking beast and will only make us stronger in midfield. There is no one in the world like Dembele but with him out for the start of the season, we must get Wanyama to fill that gap before the season starts. Wayanma will also give Poch some valuable options for the center of our midfield... which are sadly lacking atm.

Bartra. We would be getting a young defender who can play in the center or right of defense. He is a Spanish International who has huge potential and has already been in a champs league winning squad. Best part is we would be getting him for next to peanuts. Absolutely brilliant signing for our squad depth if we can clinch it.
+1
Poch phoning Morata? This is the 1st I am hearing about.

Batshuayi seems a decent option. I like Embolo more tbh(see him with higher potential) but a little worried if his game won't improve if he doesn't get regular 1st team football.

Bartra? No thanks. He isn't good enough imo and why would he want to move from being a squad player at 1 club to be a squad player at another?

Wanyama? So hit or miss last season. 3 red cards! I don't doubt his talent but his application worries me.

Pereya? Who is he?
+1
I'd agree with Embolo, but not the rest tbh.

Wanyama doesnt warrant a 20m price tag, he has refused to sign a new contract at Southampton, so should be cheaper. If he can't be bought for 15m or less, then its not worth it.Like Suraj says above, he's been hit and miss this season anyways, + the 3 red cards might be enough to lead Poch away looking for alternatives. We need someone reliable in midfield and Wanyama seems to have been playing only when he wants to. Bazoer would be a good option: young, strong, experienced and would fit right into the first team with Toby, Vertonghen, Eriksen all ex-Ajax as well.
We just need a decent back-up striker, doesn't matter who it is.
Morata? He wouldn't be a back up striker. If Poch wants to break the bank buy Carrasco. Then get Batshuayi. Belgium Hotspurs!
We were in for Carrasco, but then he joined Atletico. There's no way we'll be getting him now only a year on, he was a CL finalist, no reason to leave at all.

Batshuayi would be one of my first choices, but apparently Marseille want 30m. That's far over Spur's valuation of him (and mine tbh, he hasn't done enough to prove that worth), so it depends on how good a bargain Levy can get.
+1
And now it's Andre Schurrle Pochettino has made his top target, personally contacted etc.. Silly season is upon us!
+1
Bartra is gone to Dortmund. Don't think he would ever go to spurs as backup given he is leaving barca for playtime. He will fill in some of the void left by hummels quite nicely and with a huge net profit. Why don't I hear anyone interested in the highest rated Italian in Europe, the lad from Palermo, Vasquez? Him and dybala tore up the league last season.
+2
SIF, we are interested in Vazquez(if papers are to be believed). At 27, his price does seem a bit steep. Not to forget, our last recruit from Italy took nearly 3 years to settle down.
+1
nah i dont think it's the same pressure as with lamela who was a forward. this guys is fun to watch, he'd be a great signing.
+1
SUMMER WISH LIST: SANDRO(Barca)to be second striker
INAKI WILLAMS to replace Townsend
OMAR ABDULRAHMAN to replace Mason
MUSONDA to be the next wonderkid at WHL.
+1
Sandro, the guy who was let go, for non-playing reasons?

We need to sell another attacking mids, before we go for anyone. Townsend was surplus.

Musonda? I hope you realise he is a Chelsea player. :P
+2
Lol musonda, really?

inaki williams, definitely not. he signed a new deal this season with a huge release clause. everyone was eying him first half of the season but i think he will stay put.
+1
So... Omar is good to go right?
+1
We are literally not after any of these players.
Pretty sure there was interest for Sandro back in January
+1
Every now and then I gt super excited about a Spurs transfer rumor. This one seems very unlikely but Saul from Athletico Madrid is exactly what Spurs need in every single way. He can play in pretty much every position and provides genuine competition for every gap in our current squad except striker. He is a legit replacement for Ali, Dembele, Dier and can even be our 4th or choice center back. These are all positions where we desperately need champs league quality depth. Not only that but he can also play on the left and right of midfield which gives Poch more options and flexibility during match substitutions.

He is only 21 years old so at the perfect age for Poch to mold. Yet despite his tender age he would provide Spurs with plenty of priceless champ league experience and a proper game winning mentality at that level. He is in my opinion the exact perfect player we should be targeting for next season.

All that being said I still think the transfer is very unlikely but not impossible. Simply put, if Saul wants to leave Madrid then we are one of his best option out there. Some would say that it is not a Levy type signing. To which I would have to agree. I would however point out that it is very much a Poch style signing. It's a player that ticks all his boxes and would genuinely improve the first team.

It's worth noting that around the same time the Saul rumor came out Poch was given a new contract. With that new contract he was given a new title. He has job brief has been changed from Head Coach to Manager. When asked about this Poch explained that essentially he has been given more control over transfers. So if the Saul rumor is true, it means that as Soon as Poch was given his new job mandate the very first thing he did was offer Saul a contract. To be honest I don't find that too hard to believe really.

Maybe Poch is being a bit naive in first foray into the market by aiming for someone the caliber of Saul. The truth is however that Saul has a release clause like every player in Spain and I firmly believe 36 mil is within Spurs capacity... if that is what Poch really wants. Spurs are finally in the champs league group stage for sure and have the new TV money coming in this window. So if were ever gonna splash out then logically now would be the time to do it!! Wages wise it would put him at the top of our wage scale but this is where Poch being in charge makes it more possible than if Levy was making the final call.

I find it easy to believe that Poch honestly wants Saul and may well have put an offer on the table... but the reality is Saul would have to want to leave this athletico madrid golden era for anything to happen. It's much more likely that Saul's agent encouraged the bid so as to gain more leverage during negotiations with Athletico for a new contract. It's worth noting that Athletico does sell at least one of it's stars each window of how well they do each year irrespective of how well the team did that year. Kinda like the way Spurs used to!!

Regardless of if we have no chance to sign Saul I really do like the impetus being shown by Poch to take our squad to the next level while we can. Clearly we didn't ake advantage of our last champs league transfer windows (VDV excepted.) It seems this time we are actually going to strike while the iron is hot as Levy has clearly put all his eggs in the Poch basket this time round.
+3
While I really like your enthusiasm about Saul, this is absolutely a non starter. He is a local boy, and that's like someone wanting to get Kane. Either way,

http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11838/10286779/saul-niguez-signs-new-atletico-madrid-deal

He signed a new contract 2 days ago till 2021. Sorry Hat :(

The transfer window will be interesting. Hopefully, we can get our signings done early, but with the Euros looming, clubs usually dally till after they are done to hopefully push up player price.
+2
Hatmundo, those were my exact sentiments a few days ago. But obviously, as Magneto pointed out, once he signed a new contract, all hopes flickered out completely.

Nice post though.
+1
GO into hibernation for next few weeks, everyone. Atleast, I intend to do so.
I think our high-energy game has exhausted me as well. :D
