Tottenham Hotspur latest: Including Atsu and Bartra

News, views and rumours relating to Tottenham in the past 24 hours.

In transfer news, Sky Sports claim that Tottenham are ‘back in’ for Christian Atsu of Porto.

According to reports, Spurs are interested in Barcelona starlet Marc Bartra. The Spanish youngster could be on boss Andre Villas-Boas' shopping list this summer as Spurs look to add strength and depth to the squad.

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale left the door ‘open’ to speculation over his future when he refused to comment on speculation he could be tempted by a move to Real Madrid this summer.

Spurs are also linked with a £12 million bid for Alen Halilovic who is hailed as the ‘next Luka Modric’ at Dinamo Zagreb.

Meanwhile, Ajax starlet Christian Eriksen is ‘open’ to a move to Tottenham, according to reports. The highly-rated Danish youngster has been linked with a move to Liverpool but reports claim that he would prefer a move to White Hart Lane this summer.

“Tottenham are a great club," Eriksen told BT.

"I know from Vertonghen that it is a good club, which is interesting, but there has not been any contact.”

Liverpool are reportedly willing to ‘battle’ Spurs over Willian of Anzhi Makhachkala this summer, according to The Mirror. The midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea since the Russian club put the entire first-team squad on the transfer list in the wake of bad results.

Meanwhile, midfielder Sandro insists it ‘means everything’ to be back for for the North Londoners.

“It’s been seven months without football so to come back and see the fans, it was amazing for me,” he explained.
