Today, of course, isn’t a normal day in the world of football, with the announcement of plans for a European Super league dominating sports news across the continent.
Tottenham are very much a part of the plans, and the hope of those in charge at Spurs will be a bigger guaranteed income for the club, which will alleviate worries regarding failing to actually qualify for Europe’s current elite competition.
Should the scheme go ahead then Tottenham will need a strong squad to help them compete, there’d be no point losing every week even if relegation from the competition wasn’t an actual prospect.
Hugo Lloris’ situation has increasingly been a topic in the rumour mill, with Tottenham being linked to a succession of alternatives to take the Frenchman’s place in the long term.
One of those has been Uğurcan Çakır, with the Turkey international continually linked with leaving Trabzonspor. Fotospor report Tottenham are one of the clubs ‘in line’ for the player’s signing, with the Turkish side already receiving three official offers.
Those offers are said to have come from Borussia Dortmund, Atalanta and PSV, although none have been enough. The amounts have been around €20m with a sell-on fee less than 25%, which is considered to be a good enough package.
Tottenham are said to have taken information, which likely means asking about the price.
