Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Can Spurs beat Arsenal and Chelsea to 10 goals, 3 assists striker?

A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly entered the race to sign Mario Balotelli from AC Milan.

Balotelli has been strongly linked with moves to Arsenal and Chelsea in the recent past following his fine form for the Serie A giants.

Jermain Defoe’s departure from White Hart Lane means there is an attacking space opening up in the first team squad which needs to be filled.

In another transfer story, Inter Milan could have another look at Spurs midfielder Etienne Capoue.

Inter were linked with the Frenchman last month along with Serie A rivals Napoli.

The Mirror has reported that Inter’s sporting director Piero Ausilio is in London to potentially talk with the club over a deal.

Emmanuel Adebayor has heaped praise onto head coach Tim Sherwood following his recent form.

The striker’s form continues to gather momentum following a brace last night against Dnipro which helped Spurs into the next round of the Europa League.

“I want to say big thanks for the new gaffer, who came in and gave me my confidence back, gave me the stage to play on,” he told the press.
