The summer transfer rumour mill has been frantic at Tottenham Hotspur this summer with suggested incomings and outgoings, but our own plans stepped up a gear massively last week as we announced the double capture of Jack Clarke and Tanguy Ndombele and pundit Danny Mills continues to believe we have an interest in Everton left-back Lucas Digne.

Everton Star Confirms He’s Aware Of Interest – Is This A Come & Get Me Moment For Spurs

Speculation linking Spurs with an interest in the 25-year-old French international has been long-standing this window and we’ve had everything from a straight cash deal suggested down to a potential loan swap involving Danny Rose.

The former Barcelona player certainly made his mark in the top flight last season and the expectation is he’ll simply get better in the years to come and having been signed for a reported £18million, plenty believe he’s now in the ballpark of £40million and Mills is no different.

“He has been brilliant. He’s now worth £40million, more than double what they paid. He is technically very good, excellent going forward and knows how to defend. He’s going to get even better as he gets more used to the Premier League.”

The former Leeds United fullback also continues to believe that our interest in the player is real, even though the speculation has been less than concrete, and he feels it’s a deal that will spark to life late on in the window if we get a bite or two on Rose.

“The merry-go-round has been given a big push by the Ndombele and Clarke deals, and I’m expecting Tottenham to be busy for the rest of the window. There is talk of Lucas Digne going to Tottenham to replace Danny Rose if he leaves. There could be something in that, and it’s one to keep an eye on as a late window deal.”

Despite the speculation though there are definitely those Spurs fans who don’t expect Rose to be going anywhere this summer and that instantly casts doubt on this deal, regardless of how much I like Digne.

  • Mills is not a football pundit. He is a used up football player trying to hit on some outrageous opinions in the hopes that someone will give him a job. A pundit he is not. I can’t see Everton offering Digne and 25M for Rose and it certainly wouldn’t go the other way round. Sorry Danny – maybe you could start a local doggy-walking enterprise. Youy are used to working out of doors.

    • Ha in fairness Brian (despite the rather childish dig), you can’t actually accuse me of giving the claim substance but it’s news (in this day and age) and it does seem to have somewhat sparked the old rumours as expected. I’m definitely not against Digne as he impressed me in what I saw but I’m not as sold on Rose’s departure so I don’t see it happening. But I would like it to – hence Mills’ comments had a draw for me.

      • My dig is at the other Danny. Mills has been making all kinds of “insider claims” since his favourite player (Clarke) signed for Tottenham. I’m not opposed to Digne either but Mills claim is right out of the ether. No substance- not news. I think we have 2 players who don’t want to move and 2 teams who don’t want to move them and one Danny Mills trying to impress us with his speculation.

        • Complete misread that, my apologies Brian. I’d like Digne as said, but I don’t see it happening myself yet, but I do agree with Mills in the sense of if we have a real interest in him, it will be a deal for later in the window, but I certainly don’t see any of the swap suggestions coming to fruition.

  • To be fair its only Spurs we are talking about. Gonna be lucky to be in the top 4 next season. Alsorans vs the top 2.
    Would love for some deals to bite Levy in the *ss as he’s overplayed his hand as a tough negotiater one too many times!!

    • Who do you support , George ? The Poch/Levy non-acquisition stance last summer worked well for them. It was brilliant. I didn’t see any tough negotiator stance taken then. Refusing to pay 40M for a 15M rated Championship player is more wise than tough. I’m not sure why people post “tough” as a negative. I hope our CEO is a tough negotiator.
