Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has warned Tottenham Hotspur that they may not be able to sign Jack Grealish for a knockdown price this summer. Earlier last month, Bruce admitted that the Villains may have to offload some of main players after having entered into a transfer embargo, but the club have since managed to find a breakthrough with the change in ownership.

As a result, the west Midlands outfit are in a much better position financially and Bruce has now warned Spurs that Grealish won’t come on the cheap, he said: “I don’t want to lose Jack and neither do the owners. We don’t want to lose our best players but it’s football and it might happen. The one thing we’re able to do is be in a much better bargaining position because now, if Spurs want to buy him, they will have to buy him at a premium that in the last few weeks they haven’t been able to get to.Take money out of it, we’re in the Championship and Tottenham are in the Champions League so I’m aware that there is a human involved and a football player.”

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has urged England manager Gareth Southgate to resist playing Dele Alli against Panama. The Three Lions midfielder is already said to be carrying a groin strain from the 2-1 win over Tunisia and Merson believes the 22-year-old should not be risked against a side whoare likely to defence for most periods of the game.

He told Sky Sports News: “I probably wouldn't have played Dele Alli in that [Tunisia] game and I wouldn't have been fussed about playing him against Panama. Dele Alli needs to be playing in games where the other teams are going to have a go at us and there's grass on the other side. He's very good without the ball and makes good runs, but there's got to be space. In the first two games there will be 10 behind the ball, but against Belgium and in the knockout stages I think Dele Alli will be a better player.”

Remember, he had a great partnership with Jan Vertonghen.

Tottenham Hotspur scout Chris Powell believes his side could face competition from Arsenal in the pursuit of Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha next month. Spurs have made an average start to their Premier League, and they currently find themselves 21 points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Speaking on the Total Football Show, Powell suggested that Zaha could be the subject of interest from London clubs in the New Year, and he predicts his side may have to fight it out with Arsenal. However, the former Charlton boss feels Mauricio Pochettino's side may not spend huge sums to lure the Ivory Coast international to the Wembley Stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that Spurs' chances of securing a maiden Premier League title are pretty much over following Saturday's 1-1 draw versus West Bromwich Albion at the Wembley Stadium. The north London giants went down to an early Salomon Rondon goal and they had to wait until the 74th minute of the game to get an equaliser via Harry Kane.

Speaking after the game, Pochettino admitted that his side deserved more than a draw, whilst insisting that the gap to leaders Manchester City is 'massive', he said: "It is true the gap now is 10 points. It is massive in the Premier League, but now we need to be focused on trying to improve us and try to be more consistent here at Wembley. And try to win more games here like last season at White Hart Lane. It’s true it’s different to White Hart Lane. That is our reality, we cannot escape it. Our reality is we are playing here, waiting for our new stadium. That is not an excuse. The team is doing well and only disappointed because we dropped two points when we should have taken all three."

Mousa Sissoko Glad to Have Remained at Tottenham

Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko appeared to be on the verge of leaving the club in the summer, but he has ended up staying and has been a crucial part of the campaign.

The midfielder was brought in from Newcastle entered for a then-club record fee of £ 30 million. His signing on transfer deadline day was seen something of an urgency from the club in order to increase the squad strength, but it certainly did not work out as expected. Sissoko struggled throughout the campaign and was relegated to the position of being an impact substitute towards the end of the campaign.

There were a lot of transfer rumours linking him with a return to French Ligue 1 with a number of clubs showing interest – including Marseille. However, the midfielder decided to stay in North London despite this being a World Cup year. French national team boss Didier Deschamps is someone who tries to prefer players who play regularly for their club teams. Hence, it was a major gamble from Sissoko to remain at Tottenham.

There are rumours that Tottenham’s construction of a new 60,000 seater stadium could be delayed as a result of a strike action by Wolffkran. The club have been able to demolish the old White Hart Lane in order to construct a new stadium, which is being constricted at a cost of £ 700 million.

Once built, it may be the England’s most expensive stadium. It is expected to significantly boost Tottenham’s profile across the world while also bringing in significant revenue in the way of matchday income. Tottenham are currently playing at the new Wembley as a temporary home before the construction work ends.

Tottenham finally spent money in the transfer market after bringing in Davidson Sanchez for a club record fee of £ 40 million.

The plan has been so far criticised for not spending any money after having finished second in the table last season. Tottenham also lost key players like Kyle Walker over the course of the summer. Hence, manager Mauricio Pochettino has had to prepare with a weaker squad than last season but one that had to handle the rigours of playing in the Champions League once again. There was also the expectation of having to win a trophy in order to keep players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli happy.
