Tottenham transfer news: Agent of ‘next Ronaldo’ in Brazil, Spurs set to make first signing?

All the morning news, views and transfer rumours from White Hart Lane...

Tottenham Hotspur have agreed to sign Ben Davies from Swansea City for £8 million, according to a report.

The Mirror claims that Spurs have agreed a transfer fee with the Welsh outfit and will now start discussions with the left-back.

It has also been reported that the 21-year-old Wales international is travelling to London to agree personal terms with Tottenham.

Another transfer target for Mauricio Pochettino’s side is Memphis Depay, who has been in impressive form for the Netherlands at the ongoing 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.

The PSV winger, who has been dubbed as the ‘next Cristiano Ronaldo’, has said that he knows about top Premier League clubs’ interest in him.

The 20-year-old has also added that his agent is currently in Brazil, but insists that he is not with him to discuss a potential transfer.

‘Of course I've read that Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are interested, but no more than that’, The Express quotes him as saying.

‘I'll see later. My agent Kees Ploegsma is here too, but we are not talking about that kind of stuff. That is for after the World Cup’.

Another World Cup star who has been linked with a move to Spurs is Croatia international Marcelo Brozovic.

The 21-year-old midfielder is currently plying his trade at Dinamo Zagreb, whose vice-president Zdravko Mamic has said that no offers have come for him.

‘Currently there are no offers for him’, FourFourTwo quotes Mamic as telling Croatian TV programme Sport nedjeljom.

‘A long time ago Inter offered €4million but we said no. We do not intend to sell him because he is in our plans to create a Dinamo side that can do well in Europe’.

One Tottenham star who is doing well at the ongoing World Cup in Brazil is Hugo Lloris.

The France captain has played his part in his team’s progress to the last 16 of the tournament, and hopes to lead Les Bleus to victory over Nigeria on Monday.

‘The real World Cup starts now’, quotes him as saying. ‘We're just taking each match as it comes and hoping to come out of Monday's clash with the win'.
