Usually, Tottenham fans hate the fact that their club can’t sign anyone. However, as these reports from Telelombardia, via CalcioMercato, have broken, the Lilywhites have been delighted that they won’t sign anyone. The player being linked is Inter Milan’s Radja Nainggolan, and Spurs fans are desperate to pass on the troublesome Belgian.

Whilst it’s no secret that the Lilywhites are desperate to bring in a midfielder, however, Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino won’t just sign anyone and they’ll be looking for someone who fits the mould of what they’re looking for. That’s exactly why the fans are convinced that Radja Nainggolan will not be the next man welcomed to North London, as his off-field issues simply don’t fit.
The Belgian is yet to leave Italy since he signed for Cagliari in 2010, however, after spells with Roma and now Inter Milan, it looks like he’s set to leave Italy for the Premier League. Tottenham are just one of the club’s that the Belgian could be joining, but as far as the fans are concerned he’s one that they simply have to avoid going for as they’d rather pull an academy player through than sign the 30-year-old.

I think he’s massively past his best

Poch would never sign this chump in a million years. Why would you entertain using this story?

With his attitude, no way is he Poch's type of player. Heck, I don't want him, not the player he used to be.

I'll pass, he's about as rotten as Adebayor. Wouldn't touch him if he was free

He causes trouble everywhere he goes. Rather not.

No chance! Absolutely no chance

He was good at Roma but they let him go because he was in decline. Been shocking for Inter, and rumoured to be a massive party animal.

The Lilywhites hate the idea of bringing in Nainggolan as they believe the Belgian would be more trouble than he’s worth.
