A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Tottenham Hotspur this Tuesday evening.

Tottenham will not be selling midfielder Christian Eriksen this summer despite speculation linking him with a move to Serie A champions Juventus, according to ESPN and Sky Sports.

Sky's report says that Spurs haven't even received a bid for the player while ESPN report that Spurs haven't even put an asking price on the Dane who has three years remaining on his contract at White Hart Lane. 

West Bromwich Albion are said to be interested in signing Spurs centre-back Federico Fazioaccording to Sky Sports.

Fazio has slipped down the pecking order of centre-backs at Tottenham after the signings of Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer, meaning he is now fifth-choice at the club, just a year after signing from Sevilla.

Tottenham are in pursuit of West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino, and the Baggies have confirmed they have rejected a bid from Spurs for the forward.

West Brom Chairman Jeremy Peace has issued a statement suggesting that Berahino will not be leaving The Hawthorns this summer, and has informed Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy of this. 

He told the official West Bromwich Albion website: “We have no interest in selling Saido which is what I have told Daniel Levy.

“I know we are living in an age where no club can say ‘never’ about the possibility of selling a player.

“However, the prospect of selling Saido is simply not on our agenda."

Another player they are said to be targeting this summer is Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, and the London Evening Standard reports that it could be the right time for him to leave Selhurst Park.

They've quoted the player, saying: "I am a loyal guy but this is a business. Opportunities to play for a top club do not swing by every day.

"You'd have to see if it suits you and your family. At my age it could be the right time - but it has to be right for the club as well."
