Tottenham ‘ramp up’ efforts to sign defender as Barcelona ‘express’ interest in star

All the latest Tottenham transfer news and rumours as Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratico look to perfect their squad ahead of the new season.

Tottenham are now on their way to kicking off their new Premier League season.

Antonio Conte’s men have enjoyed a solid pre-season, and they round it off against AS Roma on Saturday night.

Spurs beat Rangers recently and managed a draw with Sevilla, and all eyes will soon turn to the start of the new campaign.

It has been a busy summer for Tottenham, who have added plenty of new faces to their squad in a bid to get ready for a Champions League campaign.

But there is plenty of time remaining in the summer transfer window, and here we round up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Spurs.

Milenkovic talks

Tottenham are set to reignite their interest in defensive target Nikola Milenkovic.

La Nazione via the Express are repoorting that Spurs have entered talks with Fiorentina over their long-serving star.

Tottenham have been linked with the defender in the past, and they could get their man this summer if things go well.

Milenkovic is a centre-back by trade, but he can also play at right-back.

Reguilon interest

Barcelona are said to be plotting a move for Tottenham full-back Sergio Reguilon.

Reguilon is being tipped to move on this summer having failed to win over Conte in his first season at the club,.

According to the Daily Mail, Barca are set to turn to Reguilon after seing their efforts to sign Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta come up short - or at least so far.

Gil interest

Another player being linked with a move away is young star Bryan Gil, who only arrived from Sevilla last summer.

According to The Athletic Valencia are now plotting a move for Gil, but only if Goncalo Guedes is sold this summer.

Gil spent the back end of last season on loan with Valencia, and still only 21, he likely has some way to go before becoming a first-team regular at Spurs.
