A select round-up of news relating to Tottenham, including Fernando Llorente and post-match reaction.
Andre Villas-Boas was full of praise for his Tottenham team following their 2-0 win over Norwich City yesterday. Two goals from Gylfi Sigurdsson secured the points, while debutant Christian Eriksen showed a tantalising glimpse of what is to come.
“It was a great debut for Christian,” the Spurs boss said. “For a player of his age he has great experience, and he’s a pure number 10, a creative player.”
On his goal-scorer he said, “Sigurdsson was man-of-the-match for me. He has a great attitude.”
Today’s news is very much about frontmen, with Juventus forward Fernando Llorente linked with a move to the Premier League after reportedly being unhappy in Turin.
The Mirror reports that Spurs, along with Arsenal and Chelsea, may consider a January move for the Spaniard who is said to have failed to settle into the Italian way of life.
Although the same paper claims Tottenham could be after another Serie A-based player – AC Milan’s Stephen El Shaarawy.
The story claims Villas-Boas still wishes to sign another striker despite the arrival of Roberto Soldado, and the Milan forward is a target for a reported fee of £20million.
The Welshman scored Real’s first goal in a 2-2 draw with Villarreal, and played 62 minutes before being substituted.
