Tottenham planning move for Euro Cup winner, winger staying put in North London

Tottenham are contemplating a move for Portugal international Rafa Silva, according to London Evening Standard.

The North London club have reportedly been monitoring the Sporting Braga midfielder since last season, and could make a bid for him in the coming days.

The 23-year-old, who was a part of the Euro Cup winning Portugal national team, is reportedly valued at £10million by his club.

Silva is also a transfer target of Zenit St Petersburg and Porto, but it is understood that he would prefer to play in Premier League.

He also helped his club won Portuguese Cup last season.

 

Spurs are also expected to complete the signing of winger Georges Kevin N’Koudou from Marseille in the coming days. The North London club have reportedly paid £10.8 million for the services of the France U21 international.

Spurs forward Clinton N’Jie will move in the opposite direction to Stade Velodrome on a loan move.

Following the arrivals of Victor Wanyama from Southampton and Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar, N’Koudou will be the third signing for the North London club this summer.

 

Tottenham forward Erik Lamela has dismissed the rumours linking with an exit from the North London club.

The 24-year-old has insisted that his only focusing on his future at the club under manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Lamela, who joined Spurs from AS Roma in 2013, at first struggled at White Hart Lane following his club-record move.

However, he has grown into an integral member of the first-team at the club following the arrival of his compatriot Pochettino.

The Argentina international scored ten goals and provided nine assists for Spurs last season and helped them secure a top-four finish in Premier League.

“Ever since I came to Tottenham I have always heard that I am supposed to be leaving,” Lamela said as quoted by Sky Sports. “It is the same every summer, I do not know why.

“From the beginning, my focus has always been on Tottenham, even when things did not go as planned at the start.”

“I have never wanted to leave or thought about leaving. I enjoy playing for the club and get on well with all the players, the staff and supporters,” Lamela added.

“I feel a big connection with the club and especially the fans who have always supported me so much.”
The North London club will kick off their next season against Everton at Goodison Park on August 13.
