Keep up to date with all the latest Tottenham Hotspur transfer news below…

  • TOTTENHAM clearly missed England striker and talisman Harry Kane on Saturday, says Alan Shearer.

    He’s the man they would have wanted on the end of Serge Aurier’s cross that Giovani Lo Celso somehow managed to put wide with the goal gaping.

    The biggest worry for Spurs will be how stale they have become and also how dreadful they have been at the back this season.

    Just last season Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen were considered one of the best partnerships in the Prem.

    But Jose Mourinho can’t make his mind up between two or three at the back.

    And the Spurs boss has made several changes during his short reign, including giving 20-year-old Japhet Tanganga his league debut against Liverpool on Saturday.

    Mourinho knew he wouldn’t have huge spending power when he agreed to take over but they look four or five players short of getting back to where they were last season.

  • BARCELONA have made Mauricio Pochettino their top managerial target – despite the ex-Spurs boss vowing NEVER to work for them.

    The Nou Camp side are desperately searching for someone to replace the under-fire Ernesto Valverde.

    Incredibly, club legend Xavi said no to going back to the club in the middle of the season – but said he would be interested in the summer.

    Reports in Spain said former Everton boss Ronald Koeman was also approached over replacing Valverde.

    But the current manager of the Dutch national team said no.

    Reports claimed Koeman does have a release clause written into his contract with Holland but it can only be activated after this summer's Euros.

    The double rebuff means Barcelona have turned their attention to 47-year-old Poch, who was sacked by Spurs in November and replaced by Jose Mourinho.

  • Tottenham are closing in on the loan signing of Gedson Fernandes, according to reports.

    Jose Mourinho is keen to add to his side with injuries adding up and Fernandes looks set to sign in the coming days.

    The midfielder has been in talks with with other clubs, but Spurs are understood to have won the race for the 21-year-old.

    With Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele injured, the Benfica midfielder will provide some much needed support in the midfield.

  • TOTTENHAM have reportedly sent scouts to watch Roma midfielder Amadou Diawara take on Juventus tonight, according to Tuttosport.

    Spurs are keen to add to their defensive midfield options with Moussa Sissoko now set for a spell on the sidelines.

    Victor Wanyama is tipped to leave Tottenham this month, while Eric Dier has lacked form.

    But they will have to move quickly with Chelsea also targeting the 22-year-old Guinea international.

  • MAN UTD are willing to offer two players plus cash for Spurs target Bruno Fernandes to Sporting Lisbon including Marcos Rojo.

    According to Portuguese news outlet DN, United are willing to offer cash plus two players for Fernandes to tempt them into accepting.

    One of those players they would be happy to offer Lisbon is Rojo – who joined United from the Green and Whites in 2014.

    Fernandes – who netted twice for Sporting last night in their 3-1 away win at Setubal – dropped a major hint regarding his future following his first strike from the penalty spot.

    After dispatching from 12 yards, the talent blew a kiss to the Sporting fans in what could be his last game for the club.
