Yesterday’s Tottenham transfer roundup included talks for a La Liga star, an update on the pursuit of a Championship player and news on the potential arrival of Giovani Lo Celso. Today’s edition features a potential deal for an U21 European Championship winner, a bid rejected for a League Two centre-back and another potential raid on Lyon.
According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Tottenham are close to snapping up Dani Olmo amid talks with his club and representative Juanma Lopez. The 21-year-old currently plays for Croatian outfit Dinamo Zagreb, but it seems he is close to a move to Spurs for a fee of €25m (£22.4m).
Tottenham have had a bid rejected for Leyton Orient centre-back Dan Happe according to The Sun. The Lilywhites reportedly offered £300,000 for the 20-year-old defender, but Orient are holding out for a bigger fee for the England C international.
Having already signed Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele, Spurs are reportedly going back to Les Gones to try to take their head of recruitment Florian Maurice to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium according to L’Equipe. The 45-year-old former PSG striker has apparently lost his influence at the club since the arrival of Sylvinho and Juninho, and the North London side are one of a number of teams interested in him.
