Tottenham WHL

A select round-up of the latest news relating to Tottenham Hotspur

Adrien Rabiot appears to be closing in on a loan move to Tottenham Hotspur.

Reports at the end of December claimed Spurs were in advanced talks for the midfielder, and now Italian website TMW reports that a deal will be completed in a matter of days.

The Paris Saint-Germain player had been heavily linked with a move to Italy – with AS Roma often linked – but now it appears he will head to White Hart Lane, with the latest story claiming the turning point came following PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi’s brief trip to London.

The 19-year-old is highly-rated in his homeland and will add quality to Mauricio Pochettino’s swiftly improving side.

In other news, alleged Tottenham target Saido Berahino could reportedly leave West Bromwich Albion for a fee in excess of £20million in January.

The Daily Mail has picked up on initial claims from the Baggies' new technical director Terry Burton, that suggested the club would be willing to listen to offers if they were deemed acceptable for a player who already has a good partnership with Tottenham forward Harry Kane at international level.
