Poor old Anton Walkes. At any other point of the season, news of his loan move to Portsmouth would have brought floods of responses from Tottenham Hotspur supporters wishing the 20-year-old well.
Tottenham fans are otherwise engaged at the moment, however, with many obsessing over whether Lucas Moura, who is valued at £25.2m by transfermarkt.co.uk, is going to join the club in time for Wednesday night’s Premier League clash with Manchester United.
According to Sky Sports News, Tottenham have agreed a price of £25m with Paris Saint-Germain, but the transfer has not yet been completed.
Spurs only have until Wednesday night to complete the move, and head coach Mauricio Pochettino will not want to be stressing about it ahead of the clash with in-form Man United, who will have Alexis Sanchez in their team.
It was nothing personal against Walkes; Tottenham fans just have their minds firmly focused on one thing at the moment as Lucas nears a move to Wembley Stadium.
