A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Monday evening.

Tottenham are set to miss out on one of their striker targets according to TalkSport, with forward Manolo Gabbiadini in line for a move to Napoli.

The article cites reports from Italy which suggests an £11 million move could happen for the striker who is co-owned by Serie A clubs Juventus and Sampdoria, with Gabbiadini currently playing for the latter.

Midfielder Christian Eriksen has credited the squad's work on fitness for their habit of scoring late, winning goals so far this season after their 2-1 win over Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium yesterday.

Eriksen is quoted saying: "You see the last few games and we're still 100% ready to go at the end of the game.

"There were periods when they had the ball and we had to play different but we had the confidence and the power to keep going for 90 minutes.

"I think everybody would rather win a little bit earlier but it does give us an extra feeling."

He added in an interview with the club's website that it is a great feeling to keep winning games late on.

Left-back Ben Davies made his first return to the Liberty Stadium ever since his move to Tottenham in the summer, and after getting an important win at the weekend, he has told the Tottenham website that the club are targeting silverware this season, ahead of their League Cup quarter final with Newcastle United this week.

He said: “It’s a really big opportunity for us. We’ve got to be solid and defend well as a team, especially at home. We’ll look to create chances and if we can take advantage of that then I’m confident we’ll go through to the semis.”
