Reports have suggested that Tottenham have made up their mind to cash in on Sanchez while a return to Ajax is on the cards for Alderweireld.

Sky Sports claimed last week that strengthening at centre-back is one of Tottenham’s priorities heading into the transfer window.

  1. 2 to leave you must be joking after this year and how they have played most of them need dumping we have many chances to get back into the top 4 . But you have to put in a shift and over and over there just not up to it it’s not the managers to blame that’s easy b

  2. Our defence is diabolical, these are international players who are making Sunday league mistakes. We have gone back a year and need to start again, Ryan Mason is no where near ready and is Mr Levys puppet, playing players that are not good enough ie dele alli, winks, dier, aurier, Doherty, aulderweield, and as for Gareth bale coming back to us to get match fit just so he can end his career with r Madrid is shocking, talk about using the club for practice!!!!!!! If I had my way Pochettino should come back and finish what he started, massive overhaul needed.
