Tottenham reignite interest in Premier League star, target Ligue 1 full-back and more

Tottenham appeared to have reignited their interest in Leicester City star Demarai Gray.

Spurs unsuccessfully attempted to sign the youngster last summer, and according to ESPN, they plan to go back for him this summer.

The 21-year-old, who is also the captain of England U21 side, is considered one of the best English talents in his age group. In the past, he has also been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool.

Gray has made a remarkable leap in his progress this season and has established himself as a key component of Claude Puel’s side. This season, he has made 30 league appearances, of which, 14 have come as starts. He has contributed with three goals and a solitary assist in the league.

The pacey winger is far from a finished product, but he is quite a talent, and he is bound to attract major clubs in the market. It remains to be seen for how long the Foxes will be able to hold on to their prized asset.

Tottenham have also been linked with a move for Paris Saint-Germain full-back Layvin Kurzawa. According to a report from the Mirror, Spurs are embroiled in a battle with London rivals Chelsea over the French left-back.

The report states that Spurs have made plans to sell Danny Rose in the summer, and manager Mauricio Pochettino has identified Kurzawa as the replacement. Meanwhile, Chelsea have turned their attention towards the 25-year-old after failing in their pursuit of Juventus star Alex Sandro. Manchester United are also believed to be keeping tabs on the France international.

The Independent claims that Spurs plan to extend Erik Lamela’s current deal by an additional year. The Argentinean, who is attracting interests from Italy and Spain, will have only one year left in his deal in the summer.

The 26-year-old has been impressive for the North London side after missing more than a year of football with a hip injury. It’s no surprise that Pochettino wants to secure his long-term future at the club.
