2 significant stories show Spurs are getting serious


TRANSFER TALK


Two stories tell me that we have a serious summer ahead and that a trophy is almost a demand next season, preferably a Premier League title.

One is our interest in bringing the trophy-laden Dani Alves to Spurs to replace wantaway Kyle Walker. he has played at clubs where winning is expected and that mentality is one we are looking to develop, first though we have to win a trophy so his mentality and experience could be very valuable.

The second is the story in Estadio Deportivo that suggests Joe Lewis has become involved in trying to sign ex-Barcelona and now Malaga forward Sandro Ramirez. The 21-year-old (22 in July) is agreeing to terms with all and sundry at the moment it seems, Sevilla, Everton and Atletico Madrid being just three.

The Spanish paper claim Tottenham owner Lewis was in Malaga last week to negotiate for the Under-21 international. If true that is surely rather significant and shows Tottenham are serious about the future.

There is the small matter of a Barcelona buyback clause, something we have never as yet been able to get around with any player. It could well be that which Joe Lewis was getting involved with, it is highly unlikely to have been basic transfer negotiations.

These two stories shout about a determination to take the next step and add the missing element, add that little bit extra. I'm not saying Ramirez is a superstar but he is a player we clearly want, having tried before for him.

Whether they happen or not, they are highly encouraging for the summer ahead and next season.

  1. If there is any credence to be attached to either or both stories, that is!

  2. The Aviva was only delivered to JL only 10 days ago.
    All she did was arrive late on Saturday 13th for an overnight stop (according to the second link below) in Malaga after refuelling at Gibraltar (cheap fuel there apparently).
    Probably on her way across the Atlantic now.
    I doubt whether JL was even on board.
    Here are the links…

    The article in Estadio Deportivo
    http://www.estadiodeportivo.com/sevilla/2017/05/16/sandro-ira-atletico-permite-tas/106237.html
    refers to this article in Malaga Hoy

    which claims The Aviva was there until Monday 15th. However there is no mention of JL actually being there, just that his new yacht was in port.
