AVB will be unveiled as Harry Redknapp’s replacement later this week. Meanwhile, Luka Modric who caught the eye in the Euro is strongly rumoured to be headed to Real Madrid. Jan Vertonghen’s Spurs move has stalled for now because Ajax is unwilling to pay the centre back a percentage of his transfer fee. Brazilian midfielder Leandro Damaio was also linked with Spurs but it appears that has come to nought.
The two players who Spurs might go after are Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho who also had an impressive Euro campaign and might like to join his former boss once he is installed at White Hart. Alan Dzagoev, one of the highlights of the ultimately disappointing Russian team has also been linked to Spurs and could become AVB’s first signing. Gareth Bales just signed a new four year contract. There is interest in Gylfi Sigurdsson, a possible offer to his club Hoffenheim for a permanent move to the Premiership. His strong displays while on loan to Swansea has invited lots of interests from other clubs including Liverpool.
