Daniel Levy might complete four Tottenham moves before the deadline.
On the final day of the transfer window, Tottenham are still hoping to add to Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad.
On deadline day, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and transfer chief Fabio Paratici are still hoping to strengthen Nuno Espirito Santo’s team. As the clock ticks down to the 11 p.m. deadline on the final day of the transfer window, Express Sport looks at four transactions the Premier League side could accomplish.
On the penultimate day of the transfer window, Tottenham jumped ahead of North London rivals Arsenal in the race to sign Barcelona right-back Emerson Royal.
Spurs had negotiated a cost of €30 million (£25.7) to buy the 22-year-old, according to reports, after Arsenal had targeted him in a part-exchange deal that would send Hector Bellerin to the Nou Camp.
Tottenham appear to be the frontrunners to complete the transfer on Tuesday for a player who impressed during two seasons on loan at Real Betis and has already played for Barcelona’s first squad this season.
Last week, a deal to bring Adama Traore to Tottenham appeared to be almost complete, with the winger reportedly eager to reunite with his former manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
However, talks have come to a halt, with Wolves looking determined to keep the explosive Spain international.
Spurs are apparently interested in signing Traore on a short-term loan with the option to buy, but Wolves will demand £40 million if he leaves.
With Harry Kane remaining in north London and Son Heung-min in great form, the arrival of the dymanic powerhouse might give Nuno’s team a big boost in their quest for Champions League qualifying.
Houssem Aouar, a Lyon playmaker, is another player Tottenham might sign from behind Arsenal’s backs.
The Gunners were interested in the 23-year-old last summer, but he has since been linked with Spurs and could go before the transfer deadline.
Aouar is reported to be available for roughly £25 million before tonight’s deadline, with just under two years left on his deal with the Ligue 1 side.
If Spurs are successful in signing Emerson Royal, Serge Aurier’s time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium may come to an end.
The right-back has yet to play this season, and he has been linked with a move after entering the final year of his contract. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
