Here’s a round-up of every player linked to Spurs over the last 14 days.

It could be a busy last two weeks at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with outgoings - such as Dutch winger Steven Bergwijn - expected too.

Paulo Dybala [Tuttosport]

The Juventus icon is out of contract at the end of the season, and Barcelona and Spurs are reported as being interested in snatching the signature of the 31-cap Argentina international.

Benjamin Mensah [Sky Sports]

The 19-year-old Peterborough United defender is believed to be wanted by Tottenham Hotspur to join their U23s side, rather than be thrust straight into senior selection.

Franck Kessié [The Times]

The AC Milan central midfielder has long been said to be on managing director of football Fabio Paratici’s wishlist and Spurs are believed to be pursuing a transfer this window, before the 25-year-old is out of contract in the summer.

Hugo Ekitike [RMC Sport]

The north London side were credited as being one of the teams interested in France U20s striker Ekitike, 19, who is enjoying a breakthrough campaign at Reims in Ligue 1 (eight goals and two assists in 10 starts in the French top tier).

Dejan Kulusevski [CBS Sports]

The US outlet says that Spurs are keen on a £40million swoop for Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski, although a recent ACL injury picked up by Federico Chiesa may have ended any chance of the Swede departing Serie A.

Adama Traore [Multi]

The Wolves winger has been heavily touted with a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where Conte intends to use the dynamic winger as a right wing-back.

Alessio Romagnoli [Multi]

The Londoners are believed to be preparing to make official pre-contract offers for AC Milan pair Romagnoli and Kessié.

Matthias Ginter [Sport]

The German centre-back is another name on Conte’s list of targets to reinforce at the back, if Borussia Mönchengladbach can be persuaded to sell.

The Brighton right wing-back is another player that Spurs are said to have looked at to play down their right flank. A move in the summer is more likely, according to the latest reports.

Antonio Rudiger [Di Marzio]

An outlandish one but Spurs are believed to be one of four clubs in talks to sign the Chelsea centre-back who was so instrumental in Wednesday’s win for the Blues.

The Club Brugge is another forward being tracked as Spurs consider adding another attacker to their squad.

Mattias Svanberg [Calcio Mercato]The Bologna central midfielder could come in and replace Tanguy Ndombele in the middle for Tottenham.
