Tottenham media round-up: Spurs consider move for Moses, conflicting reports on Fazio

Bentaleb, Fazio

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

Tottenham are ready to make a move for Chelsea winger Victor Moses according to the London Evening Standard, sensing an opportunity that the Blues are willing to cash in after signing Pedro from Barcelona.

Spurs are keen to sign a winger according to the report and have been linked strongly with Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolasie, but are not prepared to pay in excess of £20 million that the Eagles are demanding for the player. 

Moses is said to be valued at around £10 million by Chelsea and is seen as a more realistic option by Spurs.

One man who looked to be edging ever closer to the exit door is defender Federico Fazio just a year after arriving from Sevilla.

Fazio was having a medical at West Bromwich Albion with Head Coach Tony Pulis hopeful of completing the deal according to the Guardian, who are one of several outlets reporting the story.

The West Brom boss has also denied that the deal is linked to a possible transfer of Saido Berahino, who has been persistently linked with a move to White Hart Lane.

Pulis told reporters: "That deal has nothing to do with Saido’s position at the football club. We want Saido to stay. You never say never but we want him to stay. It would be in his best interests."

However - the Fazio deal has now been reported by Sky Sports to have broken down, with a loan move still on the cards.

Away from transfers, Spurs will be looking for their first win of the season tomorrow having only picked up the one point from their opening two games. 

They're in for a difficult encounter when they travel to Leicester City, who have won both of their opening two games but Mousa Dembele has been in a confident mood when speaking to official Tottenham website. 

He said: “We are Tottenham, we believe in our quality and we have a lot of quality here in this group.

“Of course, we don’t underestimate Leicester in any way. It won’t be easy but if we’re all 100 per cent we have a good chance.”
