French club won’t stand in the way of Tottenham-linked midfielder leaving
By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur has wanted to improve its midfield since the summer. It seems as though Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici has his eyes on a Portuguese player with some Premier League experience. 

Football.London reports that the north London-based club is monitoring the situation of Lille OSC midfielder Renato Sanches. In an interview with BFM Lille (via FourFourTwo), Olivier Letang confessed the possibility of Sanches leaving the club and said they wouldn’t stand in his way. 

Paratici has already shopped in Ligue 1, adding Pape Matar Sarr from FC Metz and will join Tottenham next season, but now the club chief wants to bring in someone that can create from the midfield. 

Sanches struggled with Bayern Munich following his departure from SL Benfica, but a move to France has seemed to work out well for the 24-year-old, who is now living up to the potential placed on him. 

Now it seems Sanches is ready to redeem himself and attempt to play for a marquee club in Europe. Furthermore, manager Nuno Espírito Santo likes to have some Portuguese names in his squad as his time with Wolverhampton Wanderers suggests.

How about buying players that are currently good in England? Just an idea. I know Levy likes playing Russian roulette but his head is full of holes because of doing it.

I thought this guy was one of the stand out players in the Portuguese team during the Euros so would love to see him at Spurs.

There aren’t many teams in the league that can field a complete second 11 and expect to compete. I thought Nuno made the right decision. Our players got bullied, and the ref fell for all their tricks, but in the final reckoning 3 points against West Ham is WAY more important.

Winks and Ali though… dear oh dear.

Our 2nd 11 was only playing the Conference league for goodness sake.

But that’s just it….we haven’t got 22 players to rely on. Most of those who wore the shirt yesterday, are not good enough.The opposition were medicore at best, if we can’t beat teams in a third tier european competition, what’s the point? There was no desire, hunger. Davies interview afterwards was an embarasment, blaming the pitch, saying that they couldn’t get going. Christ they need to grow a pair!

The last time he tried his luck in the UK ,at Swansea I believe,he couldn’t buy a game.No thanks,which is not to say we don’t desperately need a playmaker.
