Five 'wild' Tottenham Hotspur transfer rumours

Kyle Walker

The past few days have seen a raft of extravagant transfer rumours related to Tottenham Hotspur.

The transfer window doesn't open until July, but the talk of transfers has for some reason been accelerating in recent days at White Hart Lane.

This despite the club going on their most successful unbeaten run in the Premier League era, which has seen them take a seven point lead over rivals Arsenal.

Here are the top five 'wildest' transfer rumours related to Tottenham we have heard this week:

Inter Milan want Aaron Lennon

No sooner had Lennon struck the second goal over Arsenal than his name was being linked with a switch to this week's opponents Inter Milan. The Express reported the news the speedy winger could be an option for Inter, who sold Coutinho to Liverpool earlier this year. A figure of £8 million was cited, but quite why Lennon would want to leave Spurs where he is still a first choice and with the club making big strides, is anyone's guess.

Tottenham want Ruben Botta

Ruben Botta is an Argentine midfielder who plays for Tigre in his homeland. The 23-year-old is rated at £7 million but has yet to be capped by his country and was linked in The Metro yesterday. He is an attacking midfielder who plays in a similar position to Lewis Holtby and Gylfi Sigurdsson, which makes it surprising Spurs would want to spend on an unproven player, especially with Alex Pritchard waiting to breakthrough.

Anzhi Machachkala want Emmanuel Adebayor

This could be a perfect deal for Spurs fans who are keen to see the back of Adebayor, with the big spending Russians said to be willing to take on his £100,000 a week wage packet and offer £10 million for the striker. The news was reported by Italian media outlet TMW, but there has been no concrete interest announced, so this one could just be all talk.

Real Madrid want Kyle Walker

This one really is a wild transfer rumour, and we'd suggest treating it as just that. It was reported by The People at the weekend that Madrid want Walker to replace Alvaro Arbeloa at right-back, and had been alerted to Walker's talent when scouting Gareth Bale. There was talk of a £15 million offer, but we'd be truly shocked if Walker left this summer even for Real.

Tottenham want Jordy Clasie

The Metro again, claimed Spurs want Feyenoord youngster Jordy Clasie. The 21-year-old is  Dutch international who was linked with Tottenham back in the Autumn. Nothing came of it in January and we'd be surprised if it did in the summer. Clasie is a big Feyenoord fan who has repeatedly said he has little intention of leaving his boyhood club, and we can't imagine it would happen so early into his career.

Which of these have any chance of happening?
