Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Spurs may block Holtby Schalke move to stop Gunners signing Draxler

Lewis Holtby

A round up of the latest Tottenham Hotspur transfer news this morning.

The Mirror has suggested Tottenham will not allow Lewis Holtby to rejoin former club FC Schalke.

The German team have been linked with a loan deal for the midfielder but the paper suggests Spurs won’t let the move happen.

Holtby joining Schalke could pave the way for North London rivals Arsenal to complete a big money deal for Schalke star Julian Draxler.

Tottenham will make a £4m bid to sign Fabio Quagliarella from Juventus according to the Metro.

The report suggests that head coach Tim Sherwood wants to add at least two new faces to the Tottenham squad this month.

Franco Baldini is thought to be ready and waiting to fly out to Italy to conclude any deal should it be accepted by the Serie A giants.

Nacer Chadli is seeking a move away from the club to preserve his World Cup hopes according to reports.

The Belgian only moved to the club last summer but has failed to secure regular first team football with Spurs.

“For him to play at the World Cup it's important, so why not a loan? We haven't spoken to Tottenham yet but I know there are clubs interested in him,” said his agent Daniel Evrard.
