Report: Tottenham, Aston Villa battling over Juventus midfielder

By Eddie Razo -

There are only hours left until the January transfer window, and Tottenham Hotspur wants to secure a deal or two that can help them in their fight for a top-four spot. 

According to Sky Sports, Tottenham eyes Juventus defensive midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur could depart if a club meets the Italian club’s £21-million up front asking price. 

However, that could be a problem for Spurs, who prefer a loan deal until the end of the season. 

Nonetheless, it doesn’t seem that they will sway Juve’s mind as they hold out for their preferred figure because any move for Bentancur would see 30-percent of the fee go to former club Boca Juniors.

Tottenham faces competition for the Uruguayan international as Aston Villa is keen to add Bentancur to his squad to offer competition for Douglas Luiz. 

Villa has reportedly offered £16.5-million plus £4m in bonuses for the Uruguayan. Juve rejected the Villans’ bid as it fell short of the Serie A side’s asking sum.

Great idea but he’s forever fcuking injuried.Since the summer how many games has he started and completed?I had great hopes for him,but it would seem no due diligence was done again.

We are in a real mess.

We were told we were shopping at Gucci in the January sales. We’re actually trying to haggle at Poundland for items none of the top clubs want. Conte will leave

Just stump up the cash baldy you tight little bar steward. Haven’t you done enough damage over the last 21 years with your penny-pinching?
