After having completed the signings of Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke last week, reports indicate that more players are likely to follow the pair through the door at Tottenham with Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos (AS) and Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo (Corriere dello Sport) being linked heavily with the club over the last few days.

While the club have been linked with more than their fair share of midfielders, Spurs also might need to add a striker to their squad this summer after Fernando Llorente saw his contract with the club come to an end (Football.London).

One player who had been mentioned in relation to Tottenham is Celta Vigo forward Maxi Gomez.

The Uruguayan has been heavily linked with a move to West Ham United, with The Mirror recently reporting that he was holding out to see if a move to North London would materialise.

It looked at one point like Tottenham’s London rivals, West Ham could land the Uruguayan striker after the Lilywhites interest had cooled (El Desmarque).

However, The Guardian now reports that West Ham are resigned to losing out on Gomez after the 22-year-old is on the verge of a transfer to Valencia for a fee of around €16 million whilst also sending send Santi Mina and loan Jorge Sáenz to Vigo

It appears that Spurs’ potential search for a back-up to Harry Kane will continue.
