Rumour Mill: Tottenham’s Two Main Targets

According to SkySports, Tottenham’s two main transfer targets this Summer are Everton’s Ross Barkley and AC Milan’s Suso.

After much speculation, Spurs have been linked with nearly every player in Europe and beyond, but now it seems we all have something in the way of confirmation as to who Spurs really have interest in.

Recently, it was revealed that Tottenham were to play a waiting game for England international Ross Barkley, who looks set to leave Goodison Park this Summer.

Spurs seem likely to play a dangerous tactic in the upcoming transfer window, aiming to wait for the £50 million price-tag placed on the play-maker by the Everton hierarchy to drop considerably before the transfer deadline on the 31st of August.

According to The Mirror, in addition to this, Spurs are determined to prise 23 year old creative midfielder Suso away from AC Milan.

With just 2 years left on his contract in Italy, Suso has raised many a question mark around his future at the San Siro, having already rejected a new contract offer from the club.

Though Spurs had been heavily linked with a big money move for Monaco sensation Thomas Lemar, according to The Mirror, Spurs have been forced to pull out of a potential deal in light of Arsenal’s rejected bid of £31 million.

Apparently, Tottenham do not want to be drawn into an auction in which they could be forced to pay up to £40 million for Lemar’s services, which now leaves Arsenal as favourites for the 21 year old’s signature.

This is not particularly surprising, as it has been asserted numerous times that Tottenham are unable to compete with their richer rivals under these circumstances.

Do you think Barkley and Suso would be good signings, or would you rather see Spurs splash out on one memorable signing like Lemar?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Spurs do not need Barkley, already have better options in central midfield and behind Kane. He would just bolster the squad at best. If we can get him for £15 million fine, anything above that and we would be overpaying given he has only one year left on his contract and has been underwhelming on the pitch over the last 3 years. I just don’t believe we are interested in Suso at all. Smells more like his agents trying to get him a better deal elsewhere. He flopped at Liverpool and is much more suited to the slower pace of play in Italy or Spain. Not a premier league player.

  2. This actually seems, wait for it, logical. Both have premier league experience and both bring goals and assists. No #UCL experience but better depth than Sissoko and GKN. And both actually want to come and play for Poch. Less risk and more chance for reward than last summer’s transfers.

  3. It depends how many players we are looking for – Sessegnon is not coming this season (we may well have loaned him back to them anyway if we bought him) Barkley will be improved if he came, We should go for Lemur, but may have a cheaper option in mind in Demari Gray, who has the potential to be top notch or even Mahrez if the price is right, We need a Centre back and a back up CF also so King from Bournmouth and Gibson from Middlesborough sound decent we have 7 or 8 players we can sell to pay for that lot
