Harry Kane should move to Real Madrid within the next two years if he wants to play for the LaLiga giants in his career, according to Germany great Lothar Matthaus.
The Tottenham striker has been linked with a Bernabeu transfer in recent years thanks to his splendid form for the Premier League club and England.
Kane and Spurs have a crunch Champions League match at PSV Eindhoven – a game you can listen to live on talkSPORT – on Wednesday night knowing anything other than a win will effectively end their hopes of reaching the last 16.
A failure to make a mark in Europe’s elite competition could lead to an exodus of Spurs players including the likes of Kane.
Tottenham and Manchester City are interested in signing Macedonia starlet Elif Elmas, according to reports.
Elmas, a midfielder, currently plays for Fenerbahce in Turkey having joined the Istanbul outfit in 2017.
The 19-year-old is already a regular starter under Phillip Cocu despite his youth, and has featured in all 12 of Fenerbahce’s matches this season.
He’s also already been capped five times by the country of his birth, Macedonia, making his debut last summer at the age of just 17.
A versatile option in the centre of the park, Elmas has been admired across Europe for a number of years, with former Fener president Aziz Yildirim revealing numerous offers were made for the youngster before he was signed by Fenerbahce from Rabotnicki, Elmas’ first club in the capital of Macedonia, Skopje
“Manchester City and Ajax made concrete offers, in total 26 clubs made bids for Elif Elmas,” Yildirim is quoted as saying.
And having continued to impress with Fenerbahce, the interest in Elmas has returned – with City renewing their wish to sign the midfielder.
They are joined by their Premier League rivals Tottenham in the race for Elmas, while Sevilla are also said to be keen, according to Turkish-Football.
While Ramos praised Kane, Spain coach Luis Enrique declared his admiration for England counterpart Gareth Southgate.
“I really like Gareth Southgate as a manager,” he said. “Maybe historically England haven’t always been playing possession football but Southgate likes to play with possession and he is someone I have always followed with curiosity.
“I really like the way he interprets football. I hope he won’t be lucky against us but I wish him luck every game after that.”
Tottenham are interested in signing Beijing Guoan forward Cedric Bakambu, according to reports.
Bakambu, the DR Congo international, has enjoyed a prolific spell in the Chinese Super League since swapping Villarreal for Beijing earlier this year, going on to net 19 times for the club in just 23 appearances.
He’s helped Beijing Guoan into fourth in the CSL, and currently sits fifth in the competition’s scoring charts.
However, Bakambu’s Chinese adventure could be coming to an end when the European transfer window reopens in January.
According to L’Est Republican, Tottenham have already ‘laid the groundwork’ to secure a deal for Bakambu in the ‘very near future’.
Earlier this year, Spurs became the first team to not sign a single player in the summer since the transfer window was introduced in 2003, but there are suggestions Mauricio Pochettino could dip into the market in the winter.
The reported interest in Bakambu comes as Spurs are linked with signing a new centre-forward to play back-up to Harry Kane, following the struggles endured in north London by the players previously and presently tasked with playing that role, Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente.
27-year-old Bakambu started his career with Sochaux in his native France, before playing in Turkey then Spain, where he enjoyed a productive two-and-a-half year spell with Villarreal.
Beijing Guoan completed the signing of Bakambu for a reported £35.4million on February 28, one day before the 2018 CSL season got under way.
