THBN -Looks like a Fake News story involving Rafael-Toloi

Mediaset Premium suggest Tottenham are considering making a move for 27-year-old (28 in October) Atlanta centre-back Rafael Toloi.

His age suggests this is a fake news story, I do not see us buying a non-home grown player of this age as a centre-back, which suggests our name in being used to either generate interest in the Brazilian or to get him a better contract.

Transfer Talk - Vincent Janssen

Fenerbahçe want Vincent Janssen back on loan


Turkish club Fenerbahçe have offered £2.19 million (€2.5m) to take Tottenham forward Vincent Janssen on loan for another season, an offer we have rejected. They payed the same last summer and wanted to send him back when he broke his leg, but we were having none of it.


Transfer Talk - Christian Eriksen wanted by Barcelona

Barcelona targets for central midfield vacancy

Five possible contenders for the central midfield vacancy at Barcelona. All the press in Spain are suggesting that Christian Eriksen would be impossible to sign because of the fee that Daniel Levy would demand, but he is the one they all seem to think would be best for Barcelona, as did their fan poll. The Dane came out number one choice.

Transfer Talk - Matias Vecino

THBN-Vecino
THBN - Vecino doesn't look like a genuine Tottenham target

The Italian press are continually linking Inter Milan players with Tottenham, it seems to happen every window and we seem to have been offered or are interested in, every player they have. Most of these stories therefore must be fake. A common theme is that when a player can't get in the side or is perceived to be not wanted by their coach, he gets linked to us.

The latest in this long line is 26-year-old (27 in August) midfielder Matias Vecino who Tuttosport suggest we are keen on, together with Everton. The Uruguayan is at the World Cup and is valued at around £26.26 million (€30m).

I do not see this one as having any legs, he is of the wrong age again. Turning 27 as the season starts doesn't give us many seasons before the central midfielder turns 30 and his resale value isn't going to shoot up.

We prefer continuity, had he been a couple of years younger then he might have been a more viable proposition. We do not want to be buying a player to replace Mousa Dembélé, only to have to replace him again in a couple of years.
