Deadline Day: London club make late move to hijack Spurs deal for PL attacker; they are ‘ready to pay’ his asking price

By Mehdi Gokal -

According to ESPN journalist James Olley, Fulham could make a late move to hijack Spurs’ deal for Leeds United winger Daniel James.

The Welshman has struggled to make an impact under Jesse Marsch and is now being linked with a move away from Yorkshire.

Tottenham Hotspur made a loan-to-buy offer for the 24-year-old earlier this week, but it appears that a potential hijacking of Antonio Conte’s deal is underway, and it comes in the form of the Cottagers.

The London club are ‘ready to pay’ James’ asking price, according to James Olley, but the decision will ultimately be made by the player. He tweeted:

“Update on Dan James in ESPN’s Transfer Talk. Leeds want £20m to sell. Spurs so far only shown willingness to take him on loan, with possible option. Fulham ready to pay asking price but player would need convincing. All possibilities (inc staying) open.”

After being in and out of Marsch’s starting lineup in the early weeks of the season, James should be looking for a fresh start, and with Fulham willing to splash the cash, this could be a move that suits both parties.

Cany help feelin that we missed the boat , nothing like a last day deal , is there ?
A little deflated BUT we now await the signings we made to make their mark .
Unnderstand Bissouma was a smart buy , in his way Richarlison has defo made a difference without making his full debut . Perisic has class running thru him , so all is not lost and I totally believe we have better days ahead .
I also like the fact that Man Utd are scaring people now , this league is warming up and we gotta hunt those Gooners down . Expect upsets ………………. still wished we’d have signed someone , just lifts ya , don’t it ?? C O Y S !!!!!!!!!!1

Once Romero deal was completed (40m) that effectively closed the war chest spend (not net spend) of 150m. To wit: Bissy 30m, Richy 60m, Spence and the other young punts (sorry for the future) 20m = 150m. End of.

It was fake news, he was never good enough to improve our squad and I’m convinced he wasn’t on anyone’s list @ Spurs….

The last three windows have given us Romero, Kulu, Bentancur, Richarlison, Bissouma and Perisic at least – that’s a pretty good hit rate for THFC.

I still have hopes Gil will prove himself a PL player and maybe Lenglet can be useful.

Wanted more but we do seem to be avoiding the total flops of recent history.

The amount of blogs, YouTube content that say its been an 8 out of 10 transfer window baffles me…I would say Ricky and Peri Peri have improved “the squad”…Bissi needs to step up his game or we may as well of kept Winks….

And so ends another transfer window which started full of hope, only to once again fall flat.

We have enough to finish top six (injuries permitting), but I do think there are others better placed to grab the CL places this time around.

Another ‘To Dare is Not to Do’ I’m afraid.

Apologies for the pessimism, but I genuinely thought Conte would be royally backed, rather than just stuck with Royale!

More likely Levy “to dare is too dear”.He just won’t go that extra mile.

No matter what any media outlet has to say, I don’t believe THFC were or have ever been interested in him anyway.

Think someone said that money is also being spent on revamping the scouting network, new staff, improving training facilities.

Will be needed in a year or so when Kane et al depart I guess.

Be nice if the owners decided to actually ‘go for it’ for once.
