Rating England's Spurs contingent at Euro 2016 as Harry Kane struggles

ESPN FC's Iain Macintosh and Nick Ames break down where England went wrong at Euro 2016. Tottenham players were always going to be key to Roy Hodgson's plans for England at Euro 2016. Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Dele Alli and Harry Kane started three of England's four matches, sitting out the 0-0 draw with Slovakia, while Eric Dier was an ever-present in the starting XI. Mauricio Pochettino's team may have been the best in the country for stretches of last Premier League season, but England's displays were more akin to their untimely collapse in the run-in, which culminated in an embarrassing...

Paper Talk: Bayern eye Spurs star; shock Batshuayi bid agreed

Crystal Palace have had a huge bid for Marseille’s Michy Batshuayi accepted and are also closing on two more deals, while Bayern Munich are plotting a move for Eric Dier, according to Tuesday’s newspapers.

 

PALACE HAVE BATSHUAYI BID ACCEPTED

Crystal Palace have stolen a march on the likes of Tottenham, West ham and Juventus by having a had a £31.6m (€38m) offer for Michy Batshuayi accepted by Marseille, according to The Guardian.

The paper also claimed the ambitious Eagles are hopeful of completing deals for the France goalkeeper Steve Mandanda and Newcastle’s Andros Townsend.

Steve Mandanda: Goalkeeper has 21 caps for France

West Ham submitted an offer worth up to a potential €40m at the start of May and remain hopeful of signing him, while Juventus have also made a bid of more than €30m for the player who scored 17 goals in Ligue 1 last season.

However, Palace’s co-owner Steve Parish, who was in Nice to watch England’s last-16 tie against Iceland on Monday night, appears to have stolen a march on his rivals for Batshuayi’s signature after making the offer directly to Marseille’s president, Vincent Labrune. It is understood that the deal includes a significant bonus payment and sell-on clause, with his former club Standard Liège due 35% of any sale through a previous clause.

It is also understood that Palace are close to agreeing a deal to sign Marseille’s Mandanda on a free transfer, although Chelsea remain interested in the 31-year-old.

On a busy day of activity Palace are also understood to have triggered Townsend’s £10.5m release clause, with the England winger currently weighing up whether he would like to move to south London from Newcastle.

 

BAYERN PLOT MOVE TO SIGN DIER

Eric Dier: Tottenham midfielder in latest England squad

Bayern Munich have been impressed by the form of Eric Dier for England at Euro 2016 and are preparing an offer for the Spurs midfielder, according to reports on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old, who was one of England’s better players during the group stages of Euro 2016 and prior to the Iceland debacle, has excelled in a defensive midfield role for both club and country but has demonstrated his goalscoring abilities also, with two goals for his country this year.

According to The Sun, Bayern are growing increasingly keen on the former Sporting Libson star and are plotting an audacious swoop this summer.

While it remains unlikely that Tottenham, facing a return to the Champions League stage next season, would be prepared to sell, it is likely to boil down to Dier’s desire to stay at White Hart Lane.

Backroom staff in Bavaria have reportedly been making background checks on the England international during the last few days. However, as Spurs managed to tie Dier down to a five-year contract extension last year, their efforts may prove to be futile.

Spurs ponder second move after £11m striker bid rejected

Tottenham are believed to be weighing up an improved offer for Vincent Janssen after AZ Alkmaar rejected a bid for the striker.

Spurs made an offer of around £11million on Thursday night but the Dutch club are holding out for closer to £17m, according to PA Sport.

It is understood Tottenham have already agreed personal terms with Janssen and are expected to come back with another bid.

Janssen was given permission to spend two days in London earlier this month and visited the club’s training ground, meeting manager Mauricio Pochettino and discussing his plans for the future.

German side Wolfsburg have also expressed an interest to AZ and have spoken to the 22-year-old, but they are yet to rival Tottenham with an official offer.

Janssen’s preferred destination is White Hart Lane, where he is attracted by the prospect of Champions League football next season.

It has also been made clear that while Harry Kane will remain Pochettino’s number one striker, he would be given ample opportunity to impress, particularly in cup competitions.

Kane played in every one of Tottenham’s Premier League matches last season and Pochettino wants more cover, as well as greater options off the bench.

Spurs have already bolstered their midfield after they confirmed the signing of Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama on Thursday.

Janssen is one of Europe’s most exciting young forwards, renowned for his energy, work rate and composure in front of goal.

He scored 27 goals in 34 matches in the Eredivisie last season and also found the net against England in Holland’s 2-1 win at Wembley in March.

Sanabria agent firms up Tottenham transfer link

The agent of Roma forward Antonio Sanabria claims there has been “some contact” with Tottenham Hotspur.

Reports earlier this week claimed Spurs had agreed terms for the 20-year-old Paraguay international, who scored 11 La Liga goals on loan at Sporting Gijon last season.

And although that report may be too far down the line, the £11.5million-rated forward is definitely on the radar of Mauricio Pochettino, who could view Sanabria as a better value signing than £30million pair Alexandre Lacazette and Michy Batshuayi.

Raul Verdu told Tuttomercatoweb: “I’m speaking generally. There has been some contact, but we’ll have to evaluate with Roma.

“Right now the lad belongs to the Giallorossi and I’ll speak with [sporting director Walter] Sabatini to decide how to move.

“At the moment there’s nothing concrete on Sanabria’s future, we’ll see if there’s news next week.�

Tottenham have already moved to sign Victor Wanyama from Southampton and now look set to pursue a deal for Sanabria.

The player is allegedly valued at £11.5m – the same price Spurs paid for Wanyama – and a deal appears to be getting closer after Sanabria’s agent confirmed there had been initial talks with the north London outfit.

There were suggestions that Roma wanted Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen as part of the ongoing negotiations to replace Miralem Pjanic.

Kane dismisses burnout fears, feels ?sharp and ready?

Harry Kane is ready to be called upon when needed by Roy Hodgson as England prepare to face Iceland on Monday.

The Tottenham striker started England’s first two games in the tournament – being substituted at half-time against Wales – before coming off the bench in the final Group B game against Slovakia.

But he has no problem with Hodgson’s use of his squad as England look towards their last-16 tie.

“I think it’s part of the tournament, we have a great squad of players and use everyone in it in the right way,” he said. “I think not many teams will play the starting XI throughout the whole tournament.

“As players we need to be ready when called upon and I think we are. Anyone who steps in or out is focused on the team. If it changes then we are ready for that and go out there for the win.”

Kane played a full part as Tottenham challenged Leicester for the Premier League title and reached the Round of 16 in the Europa League, but insisted he had plenty left in the tank for England.

“I’m not tired, I’ve had it before last year when it was the Under-21s to the Euros, people said the same thing,” he said.

“I’m 100 per cent fresh. I feel sharp, I feel ready and if called upon I will be out there giving 110 per cent.

“We want to progress, now is a better time than ever. We have to make sure we are focused and ready to go, hopefully maybe with a bit of luck and a bit of fortune we will win the game comfortably.”
