Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Spurs identify Batshuayi as Benteke alternative

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

The Daily Mirror claims Tottenham are looking at Marseille attacker Michy Batshuayi of Marseille as an alternative for Christian Benteke.

The paper claims Aston Villa are refusing to budge over their demands for a £32.5 million fee for Benteke, which has prompted Spurs to consider alternatives.

The Mirror claims that Tottenham were interested in a move before Mauricio Pochettino was named as their manager.

The Daily Star has suggested that Manchester United haven’t given up hope of signing Tottenham forward Harry Kane.

The paper suggests that the England international is one of several strikers that United are considering making moves for.

The paper claims that Kane would be the cheapest out of the options United are currently considering.

The Daily Star is among the sources to have reported that news that Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has picked up a broken wrist injury.

The Frenchman is thought to have picked up the problem on his return to the club’s pre-season schedule for the new season.

The paper states that he’s now considered a doubt for the start of a very important campaign for the North Londoners.
