Tottenham keen on Frenchman, some of the fans aren't too keen: 'Our type of signing' – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Tottenham are thought to be keen on the young forward Haissem Hassan.
According to reports we covered earlier, the player is valued at around £1.7m and the London club have already expressed their interest in him.
It will be interesting to see if they can pull off the transfer now.
Hassan is highly rated in France and he could prove to be a good investment in the long term.
Pochettino has done well to develop the young talents at his disposal during his time at Tottenham and he could help Hassan fulfill his potential as well.
The 17-year-old has made two Ligue 2 appearances this season and he is likely to join up with Tottenham’s youth team if the transfer goes through.
It is encouraging that Tottenham are looking at the top young talents for the future but they need to invest in established players as well.
The Londoners are in desperate need of squad depth and Pochettino must sign a few starters this summer.
Some of the Tottenham fans have already taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on Hassan and here are some of the reactions from earlier.

Now this is more like our type of signing

Hasn’t he played a total of 6 minutes in the French equivalent of the Championship.
Yep definitely taking us next level :/

Yeh brilliant, take us right to the next level this will!

Why not? He isn’t a new starter for our squad but you need players to develop too.

Everton keen on 20-goal ace, asking price could be an issue for Marco Silva

Everton keen on 20-goal ace, asking price could be an issue for Marco Silva – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Everton are thought to be keeping tabs on the Benfica forward Joao Felix.
According to a report from Desporto (translated by Express), Everton sent a scout to watch Felix in action recently. Manchester United are thought to be keen on the player as well.
The Benfica wonderkid is a world class talent and it is no surprise that he has caught the attention of the Premier League clubs.
It will be interesting to see if Everton make a move for the player now.
Felix has been in red hot form for Benfica and he would certainly improve Marco Silva’s side. However, the Toffees might be priced out of a move.
The 19-year-old attacker has a £105million release clause and Everton won’t be able to afford him unless Benfica lower their demands.
In theory, it would be a superb signing for the Toffees if they manage to pull it off. Felix can play across the front three and he would be the ideal partner for Richarlison.
Also, he is very young and it would be a solid long term investment with an immediate impact.
Felix has scored 20-goals for the Portuguese club this season and Everton could certainly use someone like him.

25-yr-old favours a move to Tottenham, some fans react: 'Bang average', 'No thank you'

25-yr-old favours a move to Tottenham, some fans react: 'Bang average', 'No thank you' – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes has been linked with a move this summer.
The 25-year-old Portuguese is up for grabs and the likes of Everton and Spurs are thought to be interested.
According to Daily Mirror’s print edition (via HITC), Gomes prefers to join Tottenham this summer.
The midfielder was on loan at Everton this past season and he managed to impress in the Premier League.
Marco Silva wants to sign him permanently and Gomes’ preference for Tottenham will be disappointing for the Toffees.
However, it is easy to understand why the player wants to play for the Londoners. Tottenham are in the Champions League and they are fighting for the biggest trophies right now.
Everton, on the other hand, are still rebuilding and they will need a lot of time to reach Tottenham’s level.
It will be interesting to see if the Londoners manage to secure the transfer now.
He should prove to be a quality addition to Tottenham’s midfield. They need a creative central midfielder like him.
Some of the Spurs fans have already taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on Mirror’s report. Here are some of the reactions from earlier.

We really need a signing

NO . NO and here’s the hat-trick NO
Bang Average , will not improve us . Plz unless he is 2nd choice absolutely no.
I really hope Poch doesn’t actually think this Barcelona reject will improve us .
BANG Average , I’d hoped he would’ve favoured a move back to Everton.

Leeds desperate to sign 22-yr-old this summer, asking price could be an issue

Leeds desperate to sign 22-yr-old this summer, asking price could be an issue – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Leeds United are desperate to sign Jack Harrison this summer.
According to Sun, Manchester City are prepared to sell the player for a fee of around £15-20 million.
Harrison was on loan at Leeds this past season and he was a key player for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
If Leeds manage to sign him on a permanent basis, it would be a good investment for him. However, they might not be able to afford City’s asking price.
It will be interesting to see if the Premier League champions are willing to lower their demands for Harrison now.
The player has no future at Etihad and therefore a sale is inevitable. But Harrison is certainly not worth £15-20 million.
The 22-year-old winger will want his future sorted soon and Leeds should make a reasonable offer now.
If the player decides to force the issue, Leeds could have an advantage during negotiations.
Harrison will want to play regular first-team football and he is well settled at Leeds United. The move to Elland Road would make a lot of sense for him.
Apparently, Leeds would be open to another loan spell for the player but City are keen on a permanent transfer.

Everton send scouts to watch 10-goal midfielder who is available on a bargain

Everton send scouts to watch 10-goal midfielder who is available on a bargain – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Everton are keen on signing the Porto winger Yacine Brahimi.
According to O Jogo (report translated by Liverpool Echo), the Merseysiders recently sent scouts to watch the player in action.
It will be interesting to see if the Toffees make a move for the player now.
Brahimi is a free agent this summer and it could be quite a coup for Everton. Landing a player of his calibre on a free transfer would be a superb bit of business.
The Porto ace will add goals and flair to Everton’s attack. He would also be an upgrade on the likes of Theo Walcott.
Everton need to improve their attacking options if they want to challenge for the European places.
Brahimi has scored 10 goals for Porto this past season and he could prove to be a valuable squad option for Marco Silva next season.
However, Everton won’t be the only club after him this summer and they will have to move quickly to secure his services.
They will have to present a lucrative proposal to the player in order to convince him.
Despite being 29 years old, Brahimi has a couple of good seasons in him and Everton should take the gamble on him.

Opinion: Wolves ready to pay 12-goal ace's release clause, would be a masterstroke

Opinion: Wolves ready to pay 12-goal ace's release clause, would be a masterstroke – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Salomon Rondon is apparently interested in a move to Wolves.
Express and Star reported over the weekend that the Molineux club are keen to bring him in as competition for Raul Jimenez.
Rondon has been linked with Newcastle United as well but the Magpies have not paid his release clause yet.
Wolves are reportedly happy to pay his £16m release clause this summer.
If Nuno can pull it off, it could prove to be a superb signing for Wolves. They have already shown that they can be a handful going forward and Rondon’s arrival will only improve them.
Jimenez has had a very good season and a partnership with Rondon would give them one of the best attacks in the league. Especially with Jota alongside them.
Furthermore, with Europa League next season, Wolves need to add more depth and quality to the side.
Wolves must look to seal the transfer swiftly now. Other clubs will be keen on a player of Rondon’s calibre as well.
Signing Rondon for £16m would be a bargain and a transfer masterstroke.
Although he is 29, he would be a very good investment for Wolves. His playing style is not dependent on pace and therefore he should be able to perform at a high level for another 2-3 seasons.
The WBA striker 12 goals on loan at Newcastle this past season.

Pochettino target excited about Spurs' proposal, some fans react: 'Don't give me hope'

Pochettino target excited about Spurs' proposal, some fans react: 'Don't give me hope' – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Tottenham are thought to be leading the chase for the Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
According to Telefoot, the player is a target for PSG and Juventus as well but he is excited about Tottenham’s proposal.
It will be interesting to see if the Londoners manage to agree on a deal with the French club now.
Lyon will look to start a bidding war for their prized asset and the likes of PSG have more resources than Tottenham.
Ndombele is a world class talent and he would improve Tottenham a lot. Daniel Levy must do everything in his power to land the box-to-box midfielder.
Pochettino wasn’t backed in the market this past season and the Argentine will be hoping for significant backing this summer.
Bringing in someone like Ndombele will elevate Spurs to the next level. He could complete Tottenham’s midfield alongside Winks and Sissoko next season.
Some of the Tottenham fans seem very excited about his potential arrival and they have already taken to Twitter to share their reactions.
Here are some of the tweets from earlier.

Report: Arsenal want three-time UCL winner as replacement for departing star

Report: Arsenal want three-time UCL winner as replacement for departing star – originally posted on Sportslens.com

According to Plaza Deportiva, Arsenal are keen on a summer move for Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas as they seek a replacement for the departing Petr Cech.
Valencia Brazilian goalie Neto is also on the Gunners’ radar as manager Unai Emery seeks a quality cover and competition for Bernd Leno.
Navas played his last game for Madrid during Sunday’s 2-0 loss to Real Betis, with manager Zinedine Zidane ready to stick with Thibaut Courtois and Luca Zidane as his choices in between the stick for next season.
The 32-year-old helped Los Blancos to three Champions Leagues and one La Liga title during his five-year stay at the Santiago Bernabeu, and he sure will be a fine addition to Arsenal given his huge experience.
It remains to be seen if Navas will be keen to play second fiddle to Leno at the Emirates Stadium, though, and that is also why a move for Neto looks very unlikely.
The Brazilian has a £70million release clause in his Valencia contract, and with the position not a priority for Emery, moving for a cheaper and affordable option makes sense.
The Europa League final against Chelsea will be Cech’s last game for Arsenal and as a professional player, and given how impressive he has been in the competition this term, landing a replacement of his quality could be herculean for the North Londoners.

"He did that" – Rose heaps praises on Pochettino for fulfilling promise

"He did that" – Rose heaps praises on Pochettino for fulfilling promise – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Tottenham Hotspur have reached their first ever Champions League final after a brilliant European campaign, and the North London side will be hoping to beat Liverpool to the top prize when both sides clash on June 1.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino is yet to win a trophy since his arrival at Spurs in the summer of 2014, but his ability to improve players and challenge the bigwigs on a very little budget has earned him plaudits across Europe and beyond.
Tottenham left-back Danny Rose believes the Argentine fully deserves all the accolades he has been getting, and has praised him for fulfilling his promise to make him an England international.
“He is a very likable person, he’s very calm, even when we’re losing. Only been one or two times he’s ever raised his voice at half-time. He’s very calm, he’s very likable, he’s very approachable,” the 28-year-old told talkSPORT.
“I can’t speak highly enough about him and what he has done for my career at Tottenham.
“He’s changed me as a player, he made me a promise that he would make me an England player and he did that. He fully deserves all the accolades he gets.”

“He’s a very likeable person, very calm, very approachable.” 🙌

Rose was signed by Spurs in 2007, but didn’t make his debut until three years later.
The 28-year-old became a first-team regular in 2014, and has since improved significantly, making the PFA Team of the Year in 2016 and 2017, and is now widely regarded as one of the best left-backs on the planet.
Rose was called up to the Three Lions the same year Pochettino arrived at North London, but didn’t make his debut until two years later and has gone on to earn 26 caps.
He has since established himself as the undisputed starter for both club and country, with only injuries stopping him from being a regular face in the Argentine’s lineup.

Report: Liverpool keen to snap up 14-assist EPL winger attracting the top-six for free

Report: Liverpool keen to snap up 14-assist EPL winger attracting the top-six for free – originally posted on Sportslens.com

According to The Sun, Liverpool have joined the race to land Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser.
The 25-year-old has just a year left on his current contract at Dean Court, and has now attracted every of the top-six side after ending the current campaign with 14 assists – one less than Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.
The Reds are looking to add more depth to the squad after missing out on the Premier League title by just a point, and manager Jurgen Klopp seems to be a huge fan of the speedster.
Fraser can be snapped up for £30million this summer, as the Cherries will likely cash in in order to prevent him from leaving for nothing next summer, but Liverpool are said to be keen on waiting till that time in order to land him for free.
The Scotland international bagged seven goals in 38 league games, and can be a quality cover for the Liverpool front three as he is able to play excellently well across the forward line.
The Anfield outfit could only challenge strongly in the Champions League and Premier League this term due to a lack in depth, and adding a player like Fraser will help boost the side going forward.
However, with many top clubs interested in his signature this summer, it remains to be seen if he will be keen to see out his Bournemouth contract just to join Liverpool for free next summer.
The former Aberdeen man might also not be interested in being a squad player at Anfield, and the prospects of starting regularly elsewhere will surely be more appealing.
