Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Spurs reportedly closing in on Batshuayi deal

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

The Metro has reported that Tottenham are ready to try and complete the signing of attacker Michy Batshuayi.

The Marseille man has reportedly been identified by the club as an alternative target instead of Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke.

The paper also suggests that any move would throw the future of Emmanuel Adebayor at the club into doubt.

The Daily Star has reported that Manchester City are considering a £25 million offer for James McCarthy

The paper claims the Everton midfielder is a key target for Tottenham, with City thought to be interested after missing out on Fabian Delph.

If reports of City’s interest are accurate, they create a problem for Spurs given their obvious financial power.

Tottenham have released images of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris training despite recently having suffered a broken wrist injury.

The club released the images on their official Twitter feed as speculation rolls on over how long he’ll be kept out of action for.

The Frenchman is arguably the most important player in the first team at the moment and key to the club’s top four chances.
