Tottenham Transfer Targets

The latest news on Tottenham transfer targets has added some new players to this summer’s list.

Zakaria Bakkali

The Times is reporting that Tottenham are interested in Zakaria Bakkali, the 19-year-old winger from PSV. He has been with PSV since 2005 and made 22 senior appearance for PSV in 2013-14, scoring 3 goals in his debut season. He played for the Belgium under-age teams and made his international debut last season, playing one match, having opted for Belgium ahead of Morocco. He is also reported to be a target for Liverpool.

Mattia Destro

Sportiltalia has reported that Tottenham are interested in the Roma striker, Mattia Destro. The 23-year-old striker has been with the Italian club since 2012 and has scored 19 goals in 41 league games. He is an former Under-21 international and has played 5 games for the senior team with 1 goal. He was included in the provisional squad for Euro 2012 and the World Cup in Brazil but didn’t make the squad on either occasion.

Valon Behrami

The London Evening Standard are reporting that Napoli have revived their interest in Tottenham midfielder Sandro and are keen to arrange a deal  that would see Valon Behrami move to White Hart Lane. The 29-year-old Swiss international midfielder was a member of the Switzerland team in Brazil. Behrami had three seasons at West Ham from 2008 and joined Napoli in 2012 after a season with Fiorentina.

Sandro has been a target for Rafael Benitez throughout the summer and this story seems to be more to do with Napoli’s interest in Tottenham’s Brazilian midfielder.

Ben Davies

Ben Davies played for Swansea in the first match of their US tour but The Times have reported that Spurs have renewed their interest in the Wales international left-back in face of competition from Liverpool. The South Wales Evening Post understands  that Tottenham have made a second bid of £10m which has been accepted by Swansea.

    I would think MP already knows the positions he needs to strengthen, but if he has doubts the upcoming tour games should help him decide. Nothing like seeing the team in actual games.

    • Logan Holmes

      The tour will give him the opportunity to assess and work with the squad players and when he returns the World Cup players will be returning to training, he should be in a better position to make some decisions by the end of the month.
