Updated Tottenham transfer news as Christian Eriksen return rumored
Spurs’ summer transfer window signings are starting to make their mark for Jose Mourinho’s side.
Gareth Bale, who joined the club for a second time in a loan-deal with Real Madrid having previously signed permanently from Southampton, scored the winner against Brighton and made his first start of the Premier League season against West Brom this weekend.
Sergio Reguilon, who also joined from Madrid, has been one of Spurs’ best performers this term, and Matt Doherty and Pierre Emile Hojbjerg have been ever-present for second-placed Spurs so far.
Now Tottenham just need new signings Giovani Lo Celso, Carlos Vinicius, and Joe Rodon to kick on.
Despite the transfer market staying shut until January, the transfer rumour mill never stops.
Here we have gathered the very latest transfer rumours concerning Tottenham.
End of the road for youngster?
According to Football Insider, Cameron Carter-Vickers’ time at Spurs is set to come to an end sooner rather than later, with the defender not expected to play for the club again.
The report states his current deal with Spurs expires next summer and there aren’t any plans to offer him a new contract.
The 22-year-old is currently out on loan at Championship side AFC Bournemouth.
But he is yet to make an appearance for the Cherries.
This is the sixth club he has had a loan spell at, following stints at Sheffield United, Ipswich Town, Swansea City, Stoke, and Luton Town.
If he is unable to play for sides during loan spells, he is unlikely to force his way into the Spurs side.
Now I know what you are thinking.
Most Spurs fans would turn their noses up at the former Arsenal man joining their club.
And it appears the feeling is mutual.
Wilshere, who is a free agent after agreeing to have his contract cancelled by West Ham, said he cannot see himself joining the bitter north London rivals, reports Reuters.
The 28-year-old, who played 197 times for Arsenal, said on the Super 6 podcast: “I love Mourinho, I think he’s an unbelievable coach … But I couldn’t do it.
“They wouldn’t have me… But I don’t think I could do it.
“It’s not as if Arsenal got rid of me and kicked me out and there is bad feeling, they offered me a deal and I wanted to try something else. I’m an Arsenal man.”
Boateng free transfer ‘eyed’
Tottenham are interested in signing Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng, according to BILD, per reports.
Boateng sees his deal at the Allianz Arena expire next summer and could be signed on a pre-contract in the January transfer window.
Spurs have been monitoring the 32-year-old since 2017, according to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato Web.
The Bayern centre-back has played six times for his club this season in the Bundesliga, as well as making one appearance in the Champions League.
He has played 333 times for Bayern since moving from Manchester City in 2011.
No return for Eriksen
Former Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen will not be returning to the club, according to FcInterNews, per Sport Witness.
Eriksen left Spurs in January, but has failed to settle in at Inter Milan and is now not enjoying regular minutes.
The report states that Mourinho finds the Denmark international less ‘competitive for his way of understanding football’. Levy’s relationship makes a potential return for the 28-year-old very unlikely as well.
Eriksen has been linked with a move back to Tottenham recently, but Levy sold the playmaker in January, but reportedly, the player’s idea was to leave in the summer on a free transfer.
Because of this, the Spurs chairman reportedly has no desire to re-sign him.
