Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Spurs linked with Lucas Silva, Alderweireld swoop possible

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

Tottenham are one of the sides reportedly interested in signing Cruzeiro midfielder Lucas Silva.

The Brazilian has received positive praise for his development in Brazil and Spurs are well in the hunt for the 21-year-old.

However, they will face reported competition from Chelsea and Manchester United.

Tottenham could make a move for Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld before the end of the transfer window.

The Belgian defender was left out of the Super Cup game against Real Madrid by Diego Simeone, as doubts persist over his future at the club.

However, Tottenham’s recent acquisition of Eric Dier could mean they’re unlikely to go after another defender.

Tottenham continue to reportedly fend off interest from Southampton in winger Andros Townsend.

The Saints are reported to have already seen a £10 million offer for the player rejected but still appear keen to try and do a deal.

However, Townsend only signed a new contract with the White Hart Lane club last October.
