Spurs, Arsenal and Man City


Spurs, Arsenal and Man City

And so it comes to pass. I did warn when this story broke that Clinton Njie hadn't yet even spoken to Marseille yet, so even though Marseilles asked for him and we looked at helping them, there was an awful long way to go before a transfer might be possible. It didn't take him long to turn them down, he wants to stay at Tottenham and prove himself. He may not have done so yet but they are the right words, they just need to be backed up by conviction now.

Arsenal are said to be really keen on 19-year-old (20 next April) TSG 1899 Hoffenheim winger Philipp Ochs. He scored three times at the Under-19 European Championships and thus came to the attention of all the top European clubs.

Sport Bild reports that the Gunners are in pole position (why does every side have to be in order, it smacks of not understanding the transfer market) to sign the German talent. They have sent scouts to watch him and he is aware he is being watched, at the moment that is as far as the story goes.

Manchester City have started to make moves for Riyad Mahrez who is reportedly wanted by Arsenal and Chelsea. One paper says he is edging closer to an exit, another says Leicester are confident he will stay, in other words, nobody has a clue. They'll guess and take sides, then they'll change their mind when it looks to be going against them and pretend they never held any other view, much like plenty of Spurs fans over Harry Kane.

Have to admit I was on the fence about him, I never said we should sell him and made small noises to keep him, but until the goals I was still to be convinced, others I was certain of from before we signed him, Eric Dier and wrong about a third in DeAndre Yedlin, who simply doesn't have the technical skills yet.
