Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Saints eye Alderweireld alternative

White Hart Lane 5

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

The Daily Mirror has reported that Southampton have selected Hector Moreno as their target to replace Tony Alderweireld.

The Belgian defender played well while on loan with the Saints from Atletico Madrid last season.

Tottenham are thought to be one of the clubs in the hunt to sign Alderweireld on a permanent basis from the Spanish club.

The Daily Mail has reported that Tottenham are willing to spend around £20 million on the signing of Anthony Martial.

The 19-year-old Monaco forward is rated as one of the best prospects in French football according to the paper.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino reportedly wants to add more firepower to his squad, alongside Harry Kane in attack.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor is thought to be furious according to the Daily Mirror with the coach of Togo after comments he made with the player on compassionate leave.

Tottenham recently announced that the player had been granted a leave of absence for personal reasons.

Togo coach Tom Saintfiet claims the striker lacks discipline as he battles against issues in his personal life.

“He is among the important players for the team but I cannot work with them when they are not in the squad. They should have the same discipline as others,” he said.
