Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Barnetta comments on appeal of Spurs move

White Hart Lane 6

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

Versatile FC Schalke star Tranquillo Barnetta has been quoted by the Daily Star suggesting Tottenham are a team he’d like to join.

The paper states that he could also fill a problematic left midfield position for Tottenham, as well as offering cover centrally.

However, he’s also admitted that Liverpool are another Premier League team that interest him.

“Liverpool and Tottenham are traditional clubs. If the conditions are right there, it would appeal immediately,” he said.

The Daily Mail has reported that Aston Villa are now in the race to sign right-back Kieran Trippier from Burnley.

Tottenham were thought to be keen on a move for the defender, with the paper suggesting he could be available for a fee of around £3.5 million.

Former Spurs boss Tim Sherwood has reportedly highlighted Trippier as a player who can come in and improve his team’s defence.

The Daily Star has reported that Morgan Schneiderlin is a step closer to snubbing Tottenham Hotspur in a move to Manchester United.

The Frenchman is thought to be a target for the North London club, but United could offer a higher price and boast Champions League football in the race to sign him.

The paper claims that he’s told friends he wants to follow through on a move to Old Trafford.
