There has not been much new over the last week in relation to transfer gossip, but as per usual Sunday’s do throw up a few names for us to consider, and it has to be said that today we have a real beauty for you.
Let’s start off with the beauty and it is from the Sun who are claiming that we are interested in signing Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld. The Belgium international will be available for a cut-price £25 Million due to a release clause in his contract, Man Utd and Chelsea are also said to be keen on signing the 30-year-old.
The next one comes courtesy of Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb and they reckon that we want to sign Roma midfielder Steven Nzonzi. The 30-year-old Frenchman previously played under Emery at Sevilla where the pair tasted Europa League glory together. A fee of €22 Million has been mentioned. This one has been going on ever since Emery arrived!
Finally, Le10sport, a media outlet from France are claiming that we are looking at activating a buy-back clause for one of our former academy players, Ismael Bennacer. Olympique Lyon and Napoli are also said to be keen on signing the 21-year-old who currently plies his trade with Italian side Empoli.
That is it so far for today and be honest, even if it is unlikely to happen, that Toby Alderweireld piece is just too much, I am off to Twitter to wind up some Spurs fans, they will be apoplectic at this news and that alone has made my Sunday.
