A selection of the latest stories surrounding Tottenham Hotspur this Friday evening
Wanyama was quite vocal in his criticism of Southampton after Mauricio Pochettino left the club to take up the role as Head Coach at White Hart Lane, and TalkSport have picked up on a report from Calciomercato suggesting Pochettino would like to sign the midfielder.
Unfortunately for Tottenham, it seems that Manchester United are firm favourites to sign the Ukrainian winger, whilst interest from Liverpool seems to have cooled after they came close to signing the 24-year-old in January.
Dnipro’s sporting director Andrey Stetsenko is quoted saying: “Officially, there is a specific amount for which we don’t have the right to not release Konoplyanka.”
That amount is said to be £12m.
The 21-year-old said: “There’s been a lot of competition in each position and there’s not one position that you can say is guaranteed.
“What’s helped over the season is that I can fill in at centre-back and also play at left-back so I can mix my games up.”
His agent, Florin Manea is quoted, saying: “I don’t know if he’ll stay in England this summer as he didn’t play much.
“I think he will end up at Fiorentina.”
