Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Spurs to compete with rivals for Schar

White Hart Lane 6

A round up of morning news stories related to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Daily Mirror has reported that Tottenham are interested in hijacking West Ham’s reported plans to sign Fabian Schar from FC Basel.

The paper claims that the Hammers have been interested in the defender for some time, as they mull over a summer move.

The Mirror names Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer as Tottenham’s two other centre back targets.

The Daily Mail has reported that Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor has earned £3.4 million in wages since his last start.

The forward has struggled for game time at White Hart Lane under Mauricio Pochettino this season and has a tense relationship with supporters.

The paper also claims that Real Madrid and Chelsea are the only sides that the forward would consider leaving the club for.

The Daily Express has reported that Tottenham defender DeAndre Yedlin has cited Harry Kane as his inspiration.

Yedlin recently made his first team debut for the club, as he looks to become a key part of Tottenham’s defence.

Kane has been one of the club’s most consistent players this season, having graduated through the club’s academy system.

“It's obviously a place where younger players are developing greatly and you look at Harry Kane he's the main one and he has just shot through the roof,” said the American.
