The latest Tottenham news on transfers is their renewed interest in Everton defender John Stones while Inter Milan are linked with a move for striker Roberto Soldado.
The Daily Express is reporting that Tottenham have renewed their interest in the young Everton defender John Stones. Tottenham had a bid rejected by the Merseyside club earlier in the summer but with uncertainty over the future of Jan Vertonghen Spurs are making another attempt to sign him. Reports continue to link the Belgium central defender with a move away from Spurs with Barcelona thought to be one of his suitors.
John Stones joined Everton last summer from Barnsley and can play in central defence or at full-back. He broke into the England squad at the end of the season and was a reserve for the World Cup.
In the pre-tournament he played 2 games for Roy Hodgson’s team. He made his debut in May as a substitute against Peru at Wembley.
Stones is also a target for Arsenal and Chelsea and while Spurs can’t offer Stones Champions League football, manager Mauricio Pochettino would be able to guarantee him regular first team football which is important to the 20-year-old defender at this point of his development. To date, he has only played two seasons of regular senior football, making 26 appearances for Barnsley in 2012-13 and 26 for Everton last season.
According to the Express, Tottenham maintain their interest in Swansea full-back, Ben Davies.
A report on FCInterNews links Roberto Soldado with Inter Milan. The Italian club are thought to have started talks with Tottenham and there is the view that Soldado would be interested in the move following his difficult season at White Hart Lane.
The former Tottenham goalkeeping coach, released on the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino has taken up an appointment with the coaching staff at Norwich City.
Best wishes to Tony Parks on his move to Carrow Road. He is an excellent coach and Parks will always be remembered by Tottenham fans for his heroics in the 1984 UEFA Cup penalty-shoot-out win over Anderlecht. The then 21-year-old goalkeeper, deputising for Ray Clemence, saved two penalties and then set off on a wild race around White Hart Lane in celebration.
