‘Complicated deal’: Journalist says Spurs are ‘pushing hard’ to sign £67m player before the transfer deadline

Tottenham often leave it late in the transfer window, and it looks as though they could be set to make some huge signings in the final days of this transfer window.

In fact, Brennan Johnson has recently been highly connected with a move to north London, and Spurs still need a new center-back.

Although Johnson has apparently been Tottenham’s primary priority, the club is also reportedly making a strong effort to sign another attacker.

Rudy Galetti claims that Tottenham are making a strong effort to get Pepe from Porto, but it won’t be simple to complete the transaction.

Galetti claims that despite Spurs’ best efforts, Porto is refusing to release Pepe from his contract until it has been paid the €75 million (£67 million) release clause.

Although paying £67 million for a player from the Portuguese division is a large sum of money, we have recently shown that there is value in that division.

Pepe might be the next on that particular talent conveyor belt after players like Luis Diaz, Enzo Fernandez, and Darwin Nunez who came from the Primeira Division became legitimate stars.

The Brazilian is a very skilled wide player, much like his old teammate Diaz, and while he may not pose as big of a threat in the box as the Brazilian, he still possesses a ton of talent and could be a real asset to this revamped Tottenham squad.

Naturally, a move at this price point won’t be simple, but Tottenham has the funds available after selling Harry Kane for almost £100 million this summer.

As the transfer window nears its end, this is undoubtedly one to keep an eye on.

‘A weird one’: Pundit shares what really surprised him about ‘incredible’ £35m Tottenham player last season

Yves Bissouma has been outstanding for Tottenham Hotspur thus far this season, but Darren Bent has acknowledged that he found it really odd that he was not able to make the team last year.

Following Spurs’ incredibly strong start to the season, in which the Mali international has been one of the team’s standout performances, Bent was speaking on talkSPORT.

At Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Antonio Conte’s tenure as manager is not going well. In hindsight, one of the Italian’s worst errors was waiting too long to rely on Yves Bissouma.

While playing for Brighton, Bissouma made a name for himself as one of the top midfielders in the Premier League. But despite that, it seemed like Spurs had made a mistake by signing him. The 27-year-old’s transfer fee might total £35 million for the club.

Bent amazed by Bissouma form for Tottenham so far this season

Last year, he only started 10 league games for Tottenham. And given how he has performed thus far under Ange Postecoglou, that is appearing to be especially exceptional.

This term, Bissouma has been incredible. And Bent is obviously ecstatic to see that he now has the opportunity to remind everyone of what he is capable of.

“Bissouma is a peculiar one; when they got him, I agreed. He had obviously sustained a serious injury. He had a fractured ankle. So, he missed a good chunk of last year, the source informed talkSPORT.

But he just looks amazing this season. I was always shocked when they signed him but didn’t use him. Why are you not acting him out, I wondered. He now receives the ball off the back because he is a ball player. He is a holding midfielder, one of them, but he is not one of those who just passes backwards and sideways. He runs a little bit of risk.

The Carabao Cup loss to Fulham on Tuesday night underlined the significance of Bissouma even further. At Craven Cottage, the midfielder was an unutilized replacement.

Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg did not have the best night. Therefore, coming season, the relationship between Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr will be crucial for Spurs.

And it really is a cliche, but Bissouma does feel like a completely new signing for Tottenham this term. He certainly looks completely different to the player who struggled so much during his first year at North London.
