Monday’s Rumour Hoover feat. Mssrs Cavani & Piatek
By Harry Hotspur -

Plausible Tottenham transfer targets are thin on the ground this month. No better example perhaps than this business with Edinson Cavani. What appears to be genuine here is that the player has, according to Sky Sports, requested to exit Paris Saint Germain.

However, The Guardian casually threw out a line about Spurs being interested in the now 33-year-old due to Harry Kane’s guaranteed absence, and suddenly we have a catalyst for many outlets prescribing this as an actual bona fide rumour.

It was suggested by Calciomercato last June that PSG were offering Edinson €10million pa (including bonuses) to stay, and so it seems ambitious to believe that Daniel Levy would offer the Uruguayan parity with Kane, ‘just like that’.

My guess, is that Mr Cavani will head for Juventus.

Krzysztof Piatek is another one linked to Spurs, and this rumour has more substance than others.

The bad news is uncompromisingly listed in The Daily Mail, who walk us through all the reasons we need the boy, but then reveal that talks with AC Milan have stalled.

With Tottenham, there is considerable form for brinkmanship in these matters and I wouldn’t start considering any rumour too seriously, until at least Christian Eriksen is thanked and wished well on Spurs’ website.

January’s windows are notoriously difficult, but we are here by our own making. As per the article in the Mail, our woes are not solely centred around Harry Kane.

Without at least one, preferably two good signings, then Mourinho will be lucky to qualify for any European competition.

Europe, where Tottenham would be expected to score goals against teams vastly superior to Watford.

    Agree with everything you guys are saying.It’s gone beyond the point of parody now.Mourinho is not a miracle worker and I’m not his fan but he is yesterday’s man and he is in a win-win situation.Levy has royally f***ed us up with his brinkmanship.
    I see we are linked with Slimani this morning ffs.What’s wrong with a young hungry guy like Bowen at Hull?He would cost what 20M,he’s a good option with or without Kane.Even on loan.There are players out there,but you have to spend more than 5K and luncheon vouchers.

    • Russaldinho says:

      Bowen is a wide forward so not going to be any more use than Moura as a 9.

    • Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

      Slimani??? The one who did nothing at Leicester?
      At least being out of the CL will mean Levy can go for the transfers he likes without it being as farcical. More his level…..mid table of lower.

      • Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

        I bet Levy was gutted when Harry stormed in and got us top 4……dammit! Now they’ll want ambition. Still ENIC have made bank without having to do that so it all worked out for him…..c@%*

  2. Tappaspur says:

    Edison cavani all day long. 100% yes. Daniel. Try harder.

    • Tappaspur says:

      My number one striker and my number one up and coming striker need to be around men like Edison. He’d be fantastic for Hotspur way. Jose. Get in his ear.

  3. Lilywhite without the II says:

    There won’t be any more signings unless it’s a 6month cheap loan

    • Panama Paul says:

      We could swap Eriksen for Cavani at PSG (circa 12m) but I doubt Cavani would get out of bed for what we’re paying CE23.

  4. Spurs est1882 says:

    So – 11 days left of the window and still the 3 most in need area’s are not touched. These are area’s that needed re-inforcements in the summer, and even more so now – we need a Defensive midfield general/Ball winner, cover for Kane and a right back!!

  5. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    Why yes, Daniel “talks have stalled” Levy.

  6. Spursnut d says:

    No one is being signed there is no money. Levy will be sorry come the summer watch out for a much longer and bigger eriksen affect with no CL or europa cup.

    • Marbella Spur says:

      THFC have plenty of money but most of it goes in dividends to Joe Lewis and to Levy’s salary and bonuses.

      • Spursnut d says:

        The no money thing is what Levy will say. The dogs in the street know we have money. The stadium money wise has been a massive success story. However come the summer with no CL for the 20/21 season how many of Kane, sonny, alli, lloris will want to stay. This window more than any other window could be the one that defines our future years. Jose well he knows if it goes wrong and he takes the blame how that goes all the way to the bank so why worry. The future can only be changed by the fans and the only way to do that is hit enic where it hurts most. With the season over save your money for next season by not going to the last five home games and don’t spend any money in the shop online. If Levy says there is no money let’s show him what that means when we say it. Don’t invest in the team well fine but that works two ways.

      • Russaldinho says:

        Financial result will be posted mid April. Lets see if we set another record profit despite lowest net spend in pl history.

  7. Marbella Spur says:

    Eighth richest club in the world but we have to sell before we buy. Enough said, we are a laughing stock.
