Tottenham target ‘completes’ medical ahead of transfer as Serie A star left baffled by Spurs talk

All the latest Tottenham transfer news and rumours as Antonio Conte looks to build his squad for the Champions League and Premier League.

Tottenham fans will already be excited for the new season as they look forward to the return of Champions League football.

Antonio Conte oversaw a superb season of last, securing a fourth-place finish thanks to a late run that toppled Arsenal in the latter stages of the season.

Spurs can now look forward to Champions League football again, and they now know their Premier League schedule for the new campaign following Thursday’s release.

In the meantime, Conte and Fabio Paratici will be working away behind the scenes in a bid to complete new signings.

Tottenham may be in a strong place, but they will need greater depth if they are to give the Premier League and the Champions League a real go.

With that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours.

Bissouma latest

It emerged earlier this week that Spurs had agreed a £25million deal for the highly-rated midfielder, and the deal is now close to being announced.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the medical is now complete, with an announcement expected soon.

He wrote on Twitter: “Tottenham and Brighton have just signed all the paperworks for Yves Bissouma deal. Full agreement on €29m deal & add-ons, all good also on payment terms details. #THFC

“Medical completed and here we go confirmed.”

Zielinski baffled by Spurs talk

Napoli star Piotr Zielinski is one of many Serie A players to have been linked with a move to Spurs this summer.

But it seems the 28-year-old is an unlikely signing this summer, pledging his future to Napoli amid the rumours.

He told Sky Sports Italy: “I don’t understand where these rumours come from, I don’t think my adventure at Napoli will end this summer. I have an important contract that will last another two years.

“In Naples, I feel good, even if somewhere I read the opposite. The desire to leave the club never came out of my mouth.

“Yes, I had a difficult period in the second half of the season but this does not jeopardise my stay in this team. I want to continue with Napoli because they are a great team.”
