Tottenham Hotspur latest: Including Moutinho move said to be back on and Bentley lashes out

Joao Moutinho

All of the latest Spurs news in one place.

Tottenham Hotspur target Leandro Damiao says he still harbours hopes of a European move. Damiao has been linked with a move to Spurs over the last few months but Internacional seem reluctant to let him leave while he’s admitted he’s happy playing in Brazil.

The Daily Express has suggested that Spurs could revitalise their interest in Porto play maker Joao Moutinho. Spurs were heavily linked with him last summer as part of a coup by Andre Villas-Boas who established a good relationship with him during his time at the club.

Tottenham Hotspur defender and key figure William Gallas has called for a positive approach in the second leg of the Europa League tie against Lyon. The first match at White Hart Lane ended 2-1 to Spurs and they will hope to bag an early away goal to make Lyon's job even more difficult.

Pepe Reina says he would be delighted if Gareth Bale joined Real Madrid this summer. The Liverpool goalkeeper has revealed he would be happy to see the Spurs star leave the Premier League because it would mean he doesn’t have to face him again.

Real Madrid may not have it all their own way in the pursuit of Spurs winger Gareth Bale. Bayern Munich are reportedly ready to table a big money off for the winger who could be one of Pep Guardiola’s first signings this summer when he takes over as manager.

Tottenham Hotspur will face stiff competition from Fiorentina if they go after Jordy Clasie. The 21-year-old Ajax man has been on the radar of the club in recent times as Tottenham scout out possible summer transfer targets. However, the Serie A team are reported to have scouts watching him.

Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor’s poor run of form against French side Lyon continues. The front man has played against the French team on six different occasions during his career. He is yet to net his first goal against them which doesn’t bode well for the Europa League second leg this week.

Tottenham continue to be linked with a summer move for Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke. The Belgian has been the stand out star for the Premier League strugglers so far this season and Tottenham have been tipped to make a move, which will bolster their attacking power.

David Bentley has lashed out at Tottenham Hotspur by stating it was a mistake for him to join the club. Bentley joined Tottenham permanently from Blackburn in 2008 but struggled to make the grade at the club and he’s since returned to Blackburn, now in the Championship.
