Transfer Talk and Transfer Fees

Son Heung-min second most valuable Spurs player
Transfer Fees
Everyone shouting about Daniel Levy putting in, low ball offers (which every club does to lower expectation ahead of a negotiation) should note that Tottenham transfer target Giovani Lo Celso is independently valued at below £54.45m.

Real Betis are asking £66.79m

Harry Kane £138.54m 
Heung-min Son £86.76m 
Tanguy N'dombélé £61.59m 
Nicolo Zaniolo £60.97m 
Lucas Moura £57.58m 
Christian Eriksen £54.72m 
Eden Hazard £107.74m

Lyon are asking between £53m and £71m for Tanguy N'dombélé and our opening offer was £44.53m.

For all of you about to rant and rave about Eriksen, his value is because he only has a year left on his contract, if he signs another then his transfer value will shoot up. At the moment, as his contract runs down, he is a depreciating asset.

Ozan Kabak

The news a week ago was that Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Schalke, and Arsenal were all interested in 19-year-old (20 next March) Stuttgart and Turkey defender Ozan Kabak.

The news from Turkey is that Monaco has won the race for his signature and that he is near a €15m (£13.35m - $16.83m) move to AS Monaco.

One o cross off your list.

Moura puts pressure on Lamela

Moura puts pressure on Lamela

Lucas Moura has added lively pace and trickery to Tottenham's attack

Spurs 3 Fulham 1

The first half against Fulham was virtually all Tottenham and we passed the ball around well. However, there was the Achilles heel again when we simply were not clinical enough.

Lucas Moura missed an open goal after 6 minutes and then a heavy touch when through and with a one-on-one chance with the goalkeeper.

It took a superb left-footed curling effort from 18 yards in the 41st minute to put us in front. Until then we hadn't given their keeper enough to do.

Erik Lamela now has a problem because that Lucas Moura strike is what we should be seeing from him when he is on the right, but it is rare. It is fine looking good, but we need end product on a more consistent basis.

He now has strong competition for a place in the starting line-up.

Over on the other side, Dele Alli has had two impressive games coming from the left-hand side.

You would say that Alli, Eriksen and Moura are currently the first choice three behind Kane, but Son still has to come back as well.

In the first 15minutes of the second half Eric Dier had four Fulham men to deal with on his own at some stages and we conceded before we made the change after 62 minutes, bringing Dembele on.

From then Tottenham regained control and a succession of chances went begging.

How did Erik Lamela respond when he was brought on for Davinson Sanchez?

Fulham were attacking, Dele Alli challenged, the ball was played in space to Lamela and he ran at the heart of the defence drawing players to him. That gave and Harry Kane space on the left-hand side of the penalty box.

Lamela played the ball to Kane just before the tackles came in, Kane cut back onto his right foot and calmly slotted home to make it 3-1.

Prior to that Kieran Trippier had emulated his England free-kick at the World Cup and scored our first goal direct from a free-kick for a couple of years.

Lamela himself had a couple of chances to score but the keeper was equal and he was kept out.

Two games, two wins.

VIDEO: Lucas Moura vs Roma

A 4-1 victory over Roma and the commentators were raving about Lucas Moura. He had to re-learn the defensive side of his game to fit our system so wasn't used much last season. He hadn't been used much by PSG when we bought him in January so this summer he really is like a new signing.

The video below is of Lucas Moura against Roma. He was on the field for 82 minutes and his involvement with the ball was 4 minutes 41 seconds. In other words, his game with the ball was 5.37% of the time and his off the ball game was 94.63% of the time.

That is the same for all players roughly so it is clear what they do defensively and what a player does off the ball is just as important as what they do on the ball.

What a player does on the ball can often blind people to a game that isn't up to scratch off it

Yahoo Interview With Lucas Moura

Lucas Moura signing his contract at Tottenham

How do you rate your first months of Tottenham? 
I put in my head that I am facing the great opportunity of my life. The adaptation to the city of London was very calm and the athletes of the team received me well. Some factors helped, such as the presence of Aurier, with whom I played in PSG, and the fact that Sissoko and Llorris spoke French.
You made 11 games and a goal. Did you expect to have played more? 
I arrived in Tottenham after seven months without acting, which complicated. Not to mention that the team was extremely fit, fighting for the first place. I have to have patience and work, because soon the opportunity will appear. I have a contract until 2023.
With the moral of those who have played the Champions League and the French Championship, how do you see the Premier League? 
It is very different. I have always said that it is the most competitive, the most disputed championship in the world. And the environment is different, with a very dynamic game, surrounded by all the quality teams. I'm having a great dream.
Are you good with the English language? 
I could talk a little bit when I moved and I'm calm. I'm good.
Kane, Dele Alli, Eriksen, Son ... several of his teammates are playing the World Cup. Which one impressed you the most? 
Kane is awesome. It looks like a machine in every way. Even to recover from a severe ankle injury. He makes the pivot, has strength, incredible quality in finishing. Son and His Alli are extremely fast, finishing with both legs ... Eriksen hits the ball like a few. And another one that caught my attention was Dembele, who is outstanding.
