Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Can Spurs beat Europe's finest to signing of Dortmund star?

A round up of the key transfer stories about Tottenham Hotspur this morning.

The Mirror has reported that Tottenham are ready to join the race to sign Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus.

The German midfielder has been tracked by some of the biggest teams in Europe including Premier League champions Manchester United.

Reus is reportedly seen as the ideal sort of player to fill the space out on Tottenham’s left hand side by Tim Sherwood.

Lewis Holtby won’t move to FC Schalke unless one of their squad moves on.

The latest reports have thrown doubt over a possible return to Germany for the midfielder who has failed to secure regular first team football at White Hart Lane.

“We can’t really imagine such a transfer financially. Talks have not yet reached an advanced stage,” said Schalke coach Jens Koller.
