Tottenham Looking To Complete Barkley Deal Before USA Tour

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly want their deal for England international Ross Barkley completed before they leave for their USA tour next week.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is supposedly a huge admirer of Barkley and believes he has the ability to take his game to the next level. Everton are demanding £50 million for the playmaker, whereas Tottenham are only willing to pay half the price for his signature.

Barkley was not included in Everton’s pre-season tour in Tanzania, although he has been ruled out through ‘injury’. The midfielder has rejected several contract renewals by Ronald Koeman and is said to be holding out a move to North London according to the Mirror. Spurs are keen to get Barkley on board before they travel to the US on Wednesday, where negotiations will have to move swiftly if they want to finalise the deal before then.

The Toffees are willing to negotiate as they want to bring in former Tottenham player Gylfi Sigurdsson to the blue side of Merseyside, and the departure of Ross Barkley will bring in the money to meet Swansea’s hefty asking price.

Tottenham Lining Up £20m Bid For Former Liverpool Winger

After the departure of Kyle Walker, Tottenham can now look into the transfer market. Gaining a hefty fee in the region of £50m from his exit, the North Londoners now have the leverage to improve their squad depth, which was the aim before the window had opened.

According to (Di Marzio) Tottenham have made an approach for AC Milan playmaker Suso, after an impressive campaign with the club. Sky Sports Italy also claim that Milan are reluctant to sell the Spaniard, who has two years left remaining on his contract.

Since his move away from Anfield, the winger has blossomed in a young, promising Milan side. After years of mediocracy, the Italian club have looked to turn things around after being extremely active in the transfer window. Additions such as Leonardo Bonucci and Ricardo Rodriguez indicate that the new owners are looking to take down Juventus and go back to winning silverware.

It has been reported that Mauricio Pochettino is a big admirer of the right winger, and is heavily pursuing him to allow Tottenham to be able to compete in the Champions League next season. Many links are circulating around White Hart Lane suggesting the sale of Erik Lamela to Inter Milan, as Suso’s playstyle is somewhat similar to the Argentines. Suso is supposedly not pushing a move away from Italy, as Spurs are lining up a £19 million bid for the player.

Tottenham Have £13m Bid Rejected For Ricardo Pereira

With the inevitable departure of Kyle Walker to Premier League rivals Manchester City, the Lilywhites are looking into the transfer market for a Right Back to replace the England international. Rumours are suggesting that FC Porto defender Ricardo Pereira (23) is a primary target for Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino, as they look to push for the title again next season.

Portuguese source (@Ojogo) report that Tottenham have had a bid of £13 million rejected by Porto. The Right Back has a £23 million release in his contract, as Tottenham will likely be forced to pay this if they want to acquire his signature.

Italian giants Juventus are reportedly interested in Ricardo Pereira due to Dani Alves’ recent move to Paris-Saint Germain.
