Tottenham Hotspur ‘close’ to latest signing and former target eyed by Newcastle United

Tottenham Hotspur have a big few weeks ahead as they prepare for the new season.

Antonio Conte is gearing up for his first full campaign in charge and has been a busy man over recent times.

Spurs have been making some eye-catching signings with Richarlison, Yves Bissouma and Ivan Perisic among them and they don’t appear to have stopped their recruitment drive yet.

The London outfit will be playing Champions League football again next term so will need plenty of depth in their squad.

Here is a look at all the latest news coming out of the club today.....

Spence on his way

Spurs are poised to complete the signing of Djed Spence from Middlesbrough.

The right wing-back spent last season on loan at Nottingham Forest and helped the Reds gain promotion from the Championship.

The Telegraph report that he is ‘close’ to a permanent switch to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Bergwijn heading to Holland

Conte is set to give Steven Bergwijn the green light to head out the exit door.

The club has agreed a fee with Ajax and the attacker is now closing in on a return to Holland.

Sky Sports claim he is ‘heading’ for a medical and he will be embarking on a new chapter in his career assuming the deal gets over the line.

Target eyed by Newcastle United

Anthony Gordon, who has been linked with Spurs this summer, is wanted by Newcastle United now.

Eddie Howe’s side are keen to snap him up in this window and the Toffees risk losing him now after seeing Richarlison leave the club earlier this month.

The Daily Mail claim the Toon Army have ‘approached’ the England youth international.
