Every important news story you need to know about Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly ready to shell out up to £20 million on Christian Benteke. The Aston Villa forward has been linked with Spurs since the back end of last season and according to the British press, the club are ready to make a move for him.

Spanish newspaper Marca has suggested Gareth Bale will target his relationship with Daniel Levy to force a move to Spain. The paper suggests that Bale will use a ‘nice guy’ approach to talk Levy into being more receptive over a deal. However, it could be pure publicity on the part of the pro-Real news source.

Tottenham star Gareth Bale has refused to give away his favourite holiday destination. Rumours and speculation continue to surround the Welshman, who is being lined up by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez as the next superstar to join the Spanish club.

Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing 19-year-old French striker Lenny Nangis from Caen. Nangis is an Under-19 French striker and Spurs look set to go head-to-head with Everton to sign him, with Roberto Martinez also apparently interested.

Spurs midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has said it’s important to get off to a good start next season. Tottenham open their Premier League campaign with a match against London rivals Crystal Palace and Sigurdsson three points there are as important as in any other match.

Sunderland are reportedly targeting Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose ahead of a permanent switch to the North East. Rose spent time on loan with Sunderland last season, becoming one of their most important players and Paolo Di Canio is thought to be keen on tying him down to a permanent deal.

Tottenham target Miralem Pjanic will stay in Serie A with current side Roma. Pjanic was being linked with a move to North London but his agent has dismissed any chance his player will leave Italy, insisting the Bosnian is focused purely on his role with the Serie A giants.

AVB has played down any Tottenham Hotspur links with young Brazilian sensation Bernard. AVB has admitted the club are keeping one eye on the Brazilian midfielder but has insisted he doesn’t think the club will be making a move for him this summer in the transfer window.

Andre Villas-Boas has reiterated his commitment to the club. AVB dismissed reports suggesting he’s on the move, with Paris Saint-Germain looking to sign him. His stood by that snub and will not be joining PSG or any other club ahead of the start of the new season.
