Aaron Wan-Bissaka future

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is one of the best and most promising young players in the Premier League, and there is no surprise that Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in the Crystal Palace right-back.

The Sun has reported of Tottenham’s interest in securing the services of Wan-Bissaka as a potential replacement for Serge Aurier, with Spurs claimed to be willing to sell the 26-year-old Ivory Coast international right-back.

The Eagles are set to retain their Premier League status for the 2019-20 campaign, but it is going to be hard for the Eagles to keep the England Under-21 international beyond the summer transfer window.

 

Palace manager Roy Hodgson, though, is confident that the youngster - who earns £15,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - will stay at Selhurst Park next season.

Hodgson told Sky Sports: "I can't say that I am surprised [about reported interest], I think he is playing so well and he has an incredible future in front of him.

“But he has a four-year contract with us and when we asked him to sign that, we were asking him to be a Crystal Palace player during that time.

"And I've not seen anything in his performances, or heard anything that causes me to change my mind or have any doubts that he is going to be our player."

David Neres interest

According to Goal Brasil, Tottenham are among the clubs interested in signing David Neres from Ajax in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that Arsenal and AC Milan are also interested in securing the services of the 22-year-old Brazil international forward.

The report has claimed that Ajax want between €70 million and €80m (£60.22m and £68.83m) to part company with talented and promising youngster.

According to WhoScored, Neres has made 18 starts and eight substitute appearances in the Eredivisie for Ajax so far this season, scoring eight goals and providing eight assists in the process.
