Tottenham fans are in a strange position at the moment. With an excruciatingly painful wait for the Champions League final and then the summer window ahead, the fans are starting to think they might finally sign a player again. That’s where these, rather rogue, reports come in that Spurs could be after Newcastle’s Spanish ace, Ayoze Perez.

The Newcastle man may have lit up St James Park in the second half of the season but he just isn’t the sort of player that the Lilywhites want to sign, even if he is a strong option and would make a fantastic backup for Harry Kane. The article linking him with a €28m, or £25m, move to North London has come from CalcioNapoli24, as Spurs are apparently set to pip Napoli to the Geordie ace.
Whoever Tottenham sign this summer, the fans cannot afford to be picky. The last player that the Lilywhites opened their chequebook for was Lucas Moura, and with that being two whole transfer windows ago it’s about time Daniel Levy opened his wallet again. Perez is certainly an attractive option for the Lilywhites as he won’t cost a bomb and has proven to be effective in the Premier League, with his tally of 12 goals apparently enough to convince Poch.

Definitely made up

More nonsense. Amount of players we supposedly close to buying.

Usual complete rubbish

Another squad player.

The Lilywhites are adamant that they don’t want Perez, even if the Spaniard does look like he could add some much-needed depth to Pochettino’s squad.
