Champions League finalists, arguably the greatest stadium in Europe, suddenly Tottenham are one of the hottest prospects in world football which means surely the Lilywhites will be an attractive option this summer for some of the game’s biggest names.
So, after two windows with no action, what is the latest transfer rumours surrounding Tottenham as they prepare to head to Madrid for the season finale.
Jack Grealish – Aston Villa
Fresh from helping guide Aston Villa into the Premier League via the playoffs, the 23-year-old midfielder once again finds himself linked to the Liliywhites like he is every transfer window.
However, the boyhood Villan seems unlikely to leave Birmingham for London now the midlands club are back in the big time as his desire to play for Villa back in the Premier League appears to far outweigh any short-term desire to play in the Champions League.
Ayoze Perez – Newcastle United
Magpies forward Ayoze Perez has just finished his most prolific season in England netting 12 Premier League goals in 36 games for Newcastle this season.
Perez has attracted a number of admirers this season and at 25 is starting to come of age.
Spurs are very reliant on Harry Kane and Son Heung-min and with Fernando Llorente on his way out, Tottenham need a proven back up and Perez could fit the bill nicely.
Julian Draxler – Paris St Germain
For a long time, German winger Julian Draxler was viewed as the ‘next big thing’ and with 49 caps to his name at 25, Draxler certainly has the ability to back up the potential.
However, despite PSG’s domestic success over the last three years, it is believed that the French giants would be prepared to let the former Wolfsburg man leave the club due to competition of places in the squad and in a bid to get his hefty wages off their bill.
That may prove to be a stumbling block if Draxler is to come to the new White Hart Lane and it is understood the German currently earns roughly €8 million per year.
Monaco’s supremely talented Youri Tielemans has come to the attention of both Manchester United and Tottenham after a remarkably successful loan spell at Leicester City this season.
The 22-year-old midfielder scored three goals in 12 Premier League matches for the Foxes after joining on loan from Monaco at the end of January and the lure of Champions League football with Spurs may prove to be too much of an opportunity for the Belgian to turn down this summer.
