Tottenham transfer rumours: Liverpool tipped to hijack Milan Skriniar move, Gedson decision

The domestic transfer window may be closed but Tottenham Hotspur will already be looking ahead to the January window which is now just over two months away.

As football.london reports, Spurs were linked with the likes of Milan Skriniar, Danny Ings and Troy Deeney this summer and all three deals could be revisited after New Year, should Spurs wish.

But even with trading currently on hold until the winter, that has not stopped the club being linked with deals.

Here are the big Tottenham transfer rumours doing the rounds this morning.

Spurs tipped to terminate defender’s contract

Tottenham are said to be planning talks to terminate Danny Rose’s contract this summer, a report by Football Insider claims.

The 30-year-old, who spent the second half of last season on loan with Newcastle United, has fallen out of favour in north London and has been left out of Tottenham’s Premier League squad for the 2020-21 season.

And now he could leave the club for free in the hope that it could allow him to secure regular football for the rest of the season elsewhere.

Rose has eight months left on his reported £70,000-per-week deal.

Liverpool could hijack deal for Tottenham target

Reports in Italy by Calciomercato have claimed that Premier League champions Liverpool could be poised to hijack Tottenham’s interest in Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar.

Spurs were linked with a move for the powerful centre-back throughout the transfer window but failed in their efforts to capture him.

But Liverpool, now desperate to land a replacement for the injured Virgil Van Dijk, could swoop in January, the report claims.

Tottenham loan could head home early

Tottenham loan star Gedson Fernandes could be heading back to Benfica early, reports in Portugal by A Bola have claimed.

Fernandes joined Spurs on an 18-month loan deal and made 12 appearances during the second half of last season.

But so far this term he has only turned out once, in Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea in the EFL cup.

Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Winks and Erik Lamela are all currently ahead in the race to be Jose Mourinho’s creative midfielder.

The youngster, who was named in Spurs’ Premier League squad as an Under-21 player, is said to have a £45m option to buy at the end of his long loan stint.
