You know what this is all about by now, so no point giving you loads of spiel, though it’s gonna be a long one anyway!. On with the show!! The first one is one that you’ll all know I’d be over the moon with…….
MICAH RICHARDS – Tottenham are set to step up their interest in Manchester City defender Micah Richards, who is set to leave the Etihad this summer. Spurs ready to make Richards offer Richards is down the pecking order at City and is expected to seek an exit at the end of the season in order to kick-start his career after a disappointing couple of years at the club. Widespread reports this week claim City are set to offer Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna a contract in the summer when his deal at the Emirates expires, meaning Richards will be even more surplus to requirements under boss Manuel Pellegrini. With Pablo Zabaleta being first choice and Sagna tipped to come in, Richards’ future looks increasingly uncertain and he will welcome interest from the likes of Spurs, who have been keen on the one-time England international for a while. There are also claims Liverpool could make a move for Richards amid uncertainty over Glen Johnson’s future at Anfield, but Spurs are seen as the favourites at this stage to land him.

STEVEN CAULKER – Yep, once again we are linked with buying someone back that we sold previously. Personally, though I know some are probably nursing a semi at the prospect of him returning, I wonder if they have actually watched much of the lad this season? He’s been pretty ordinary at best. I advise you to look beyond the goals he’s scored (5 of them I believe?) and get yourselves onto some Cardiff forums. You’ll soon see what they think of him, some say he’s got good potential, quite a few aren’t entirely convinced by him. Included are those who think they overpaid for him, that he isn’t that great defensively, and that he isn’t much of a leader considering he’s their captain. I’ll leave it up to you, though I believe talk of a buy back clause is incorrect and, instead, there’s a 30% discount written into the deal, should any other club bid for him. So, if somebody offers say £10mil, IF we were interested, we could offer £7mil and they’d have to accept. Anyway, that’s enough about him, I don’t see him as an upgrade on anything we have, so he won’t get the regular football that he left the club for in the first place
LOIC REMY – Tottenham scout Ian Broomfield is a big fan of Remy and previously recommended the club sign him from Marseille. Remy is willing to wait until after the World Cup to decide his future but has no intention of returning to St James’ Park next season. YES PLEASE!!
JORGINHO – This is a weird one, because he only signed for Napoli in January. Anyway, here’s the story… Arrived in the January market at Napoli the midfielder Jorginho didn’t find so much place, but attracted the interest of important club. His agent Joao Santos is in London, during there days he had contacts with Arsenal, but also Tottenham are observing the situation. They are asking only information and the idea could become more real in the next few weeks. The 12th of April the Brazilian agent will be in Italy and he could talk with Napoli about the player’s situation.
I’m led to believe he’s a midfielder with a bit of creativity. Being Brazilian, I can believe that.
BENJAMIN MENDY & MATHIEU VALBUENA – The defender and midfielder of Marseille, Benjamin Mendy and Mathieu Valbuena are observed in England by Tottenham and Newcastle. Valbuena has almost decided to leave in June: there is/was a deal ready with Valencia
I know nothing about either player, so this was what somebody who does, had to say. ‘Valbuena was the next big thing in France like 7-8 seasons ago but never lived up to his hype. He’s turning 30 in a few months so can’t see Spurs being interested at all.
As for Mendy, he’s only 19 and seem like a potential LB but naturally too early to tell (built a bit like Micah Richards)’….. I like the sound of Mendy!!
Finally, not a player, a manager. Hopefully somebody will know something about him.
LEONARDO JARDIM – Spurs are being touted as a potential destination for highly rated Sporting Lisbon manager Leonardo Jardim, according to reports on the continent.
Tottenham`s defeat (or should I say, capitulation) at Liverpool this weekend will have a major say in just where they finish their season and could also have a major bearing on Tim Sherwood`s future with the club.
There have been plenty of experienced managers rumoured as having the potential to replace the retired midfielder should the North London side look to change it up, with another name added to the ever-growing list today.
Portuguese newspaper Diario de Noticias state that Spurs are keeping tabs on Sporting Lisbon boss Leonardo Jardim, who has worked wonders with the underperforming club.
The Venezuelan-born coach has had spells with Braga and Olympiakos before taking over at the Estadio Jose Alvalade and has taken Sporting from sixth place last season to second this term – with a return to the Champions League in the offing for the historic club.
With Jardim still only 39, similarities with fellow youthful Portuguese coach Andre Villas-Boas will naturally be made.
The report states that Tottenham are joined by AC Milan and Marseille in monitoring Jardim`s progress ahead of the summer.
Well, that’s yer lot, sorry there’s not more. Hopefully that last bit won’t matter & Gullit was telling the truth when he said that LVG is already our manager. ITK unfortunately says differently.
Just for s bit of fun, here’s that Russian left winger that I’m so desperate for us to sign. He’s skinning Kyle Naughton, Twice, in the same attack 🙂
