Tottenham Hotspur round-up: Ake wanted, Sancho linked and Eriksen injury boost

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Tottenham Hotspur.

Ake linked

Tottenham Hotspur are said to be interested in Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake. The Dutchman has been in fine form for the Cherries this season as they surpass all pre-season expectations.

The Daily Star report that Spurs and Manchester United are both keen on the 23-year-old, who would be an expensive recruit for either team in the winter or next summer.

Sancho wanted

Tottenham are also said to be one of the teams interested in signing England newbie Jadon Sancho. The 18-year-old has been in fine form for Borussia Dortmund recently, earning a call-up to the England team for the first time.

The Daily Mirror report that Tottenham are one of many top English teams looking to bring Sancho home this summer. However, any deal would cost at least £100 million, as this is how highly rated he is at the Bundesliga club.

 

Eriksen injury boost

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen’s agent has allayed fears over his current injury problem.

The Danish star has a stomach injury and comments yesterday from his national team coach Age Hareide suggested the problem could be becoming ‘chronic’.

However, Martin Schoots has informed The Evening Standard that he simply has an injury related to fatigue. He put the ‘chronic’ comments down to a mistranslation from the original Danish report.
