Tottenham are aiming for a wide forward as their major summer signing, with Wolves’ Pedro Neto and Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze currently the two main targets.

The decision may be made for them, however, as Manchester City are currently seen as the likeliest destination for Eze.

Ange Postecoglou’s adventurous approach has been largely based on expanding the pitch through pace out wide, which has been a key focus of his transfer business so far.

Spurs wanted to make this kind of signing in the January window but prices proved prohibitive in a much slower market.

That led to the loan deal for Timo Werner, who has pleased staff so far with his willingness.

Spurs still plan to go bigger on this position in the summer, with Neto and Eze identified as the players who best fit their profile.

City also want to make a signing in that area, and have been trailing Eze for a long time.

The belief is the 25-year-old is currently more swayed by a move to Manchester, as he is ready for a step-up to Pep Guardiola’s side.

That explained more recent noise about Spurs and Neto, although there would likely be considerable negotiation on price due to the player’s fitness record.

It is expected that any deal would be staggered, with considerable portions made up of appearance clauses.

Arsenal are also looking at Neto but expected to prioritise other areas.

Tottenham have maintained an interest in Norwegian starlet Antonio Nusa following his failed move to Brentford, football.london have been told.

Spurs were one of the teams battling for the 18-year-old Club Brugge winger in the January transfer window, who recorded four assists and a goal in his first four matches for Norway, as part of a £25million deal but ended up losing out initially to Brentford, who could offer Nusa more immediate playing time and starts.

football.london reported at the time that Tottenham held talks for the player but for a raw but talented teenager not starting regularly for his Belgian side yet, they couldn't offer similar guarantees to him for next season with their current squad. The player and his camp also felt at that point that moving to one of the bigger clubs was too big a step in his development even though the talented Norway international is expected to reach that level.

However, a problem then occurred in his medical with Brentford which ultimately culminated in its collapse. After the transfer window closed, Nusa went for further tests with the Norwegian national team where they discovered that the findings of the medical "do not cause problems or symptoms and is ready for training and games", according to national team doctor Ola Sand.

Spurs ended up signing another talented Scandinavian in central midfielder Lucas Bergvall from Djurgarden, beating Barcelona to his signature for just £8.6million, but were expected to continue to monitor Nusa's situation.

Nusa has started and played most of the past three matches for Brugge in the Jupiler League since and football.london spoke to Stian Andre de Wahl from Norwegian media outlet Nettavisen, who have been on top of the player's situation throughout, to get the latest on the teenager, his future and those Tottenham links.

How long have I been saying this...

Make this happen, Neto while good will just be another one on the treatment table...

The kid definitely seems open to joining us. Swedish Aftonbladet asked him about joining us and playing alongside Deki and Bergvall in the future, and he far from shut that idea down.

– It's fun to think about. You never know, it could happen. Hard to say now.

So, we'll get to see Swedish trio Dejan Kulusevski, Bergvall, and Bardghji at Tottenham in the future...?

The 18-year-old laughs as we stand outside the dressing rooms inside the Algarve Stadium. Then he says:

"No. We’ve got a lot of work to do still on the squad and I don’t think we’re anywhere near where we want to be. It probably will take a little bit more than three windows to get there, for sure," he said. "Just in terms of the robustness, adaptability and compatibility of the squad, I think there's still a fair bit of change we need to do.

"I certainly don't think we're one or two players away from getting to where I want us to be, nowhere near it. Some of that will be natural evolution. Some of it hopefully means we continue to get the improvement we've had this year from some of our players. If that happens over the next 12 months, then yeah we'll be in a great position.


"But you've got to remember, a lot of our group are in their first year of the Premier League. A good chunk of them have been ever-presents, we need them to keep improving at the rate they are. We've still got a lot of work to do with the squad. I think we're a long way away from being one or two players away from getting where we want to."

On how many new players come through the doors this summer, he added: "A little bit of that depends on availability of players, suitability of players. There could be more activity, there could be less activity, but again, what we want to do is make sure we bring in the right ones. Maybe we do only bring in one or two, I don’t know, but that will only be because we think there are only one or two that are suitable for what we’re looking for, but that doesn’t mean we’ll be where I want us to be."

Postecoglou believes that Spurs will have an advantage in being a carefully run club but also that their recruitment will have to be perfect to make the most of it.

"I would agree with that perspective but I have always felt with those things it is not what you spend, it is how you spend it. I have always believed that and will continue to believe that. You are right the club will be in a great position from a financial perspective to continue to grow our team but if we make bad decisions, we don’t have an advantage," he said. "Even if you are not in that position, you can still make progress, it is still about decisions you make with what you have. I agree we are in a position where there is an opportunity for us in the summer window to continue to build a team."

So are Spurs now in a stronger position to where they have been in previous transfer windows?

"To a certain extent but I don’t think we are in a position to spent £100million on a player, if that is what you are suggesting," said Postecoglou. "That is not the case and I don’t think it will ever be the case for the club. Our competitors are, irrespective of their positions. When you look at our two transfer windows so far we have done really well to pitch it to the level that we need to pitch it and bringing in real quality players who have all increased in value since they have been here. There is more to come from that. The premise that we are in a good position, I agree with, but it is up to us to take advantage of that."

When pushed on why Tottenham will not spend £100million on one player and whether it was policy or financial, the Australian said: "It is purely financial. If I had the luxury of £100million, I would rather get two £50million players. Cor that is great isn’t it? Wonderful. The world I have come from!"

It was pointed out that Spurs' local rivals Arsenal, not normally huge spenders, were able to finally break through that ceiling to sign Declan Rice for £100million.

"Yeah, you could be right. It could just be my background and conservative nature where I have come from," conceded Postecoglou. "I have never been in that kind of position, I always felt that it is really important how you use the funds you have available and know they are not limitless.

"If we can, and somebody tells me we can, then I would gladly spend it mate. I try to put limits on my wife’s spending and they try to put limits on mine. It works better that way, just a bit of advice."

Postecoglou had earlier revealed that Pedro Porro had trained all week and is available for selection to face Aston Villa on Sunday and while Richarlison remains out with his knee injury, the Spurs boss had good news on Pape Matar Sarr, who he told football.london last week was struggling with a back problem that had been restricting him since his return from the Africa Cup of Nations.

"He’s fine. He’s OK. He’s been carrying a bit of back niggle but this week has been better to be fair," he said. "Last week I think not starting probably helped him a bit. He’s all good, he’s trained all week."

Having Porro back from his hamstring injury will add another offensive weapon to Postecoglou's team for their crunch match in the top four race at Villa Park this weekend. The Spanish right-back has racked up eight assists in the Premier League this season and has been a threat with his attacking set pieces for the team.

Some clubs have specific set piece coaches as Spurs did last season under Antonio Conte with Gianni Vio, but Postecoglou does not favour such an approach.

"I've never had a specific set-piece coach. I’ve always had someone who's responsible for that. I always think it’s better if that’s somebody who’s a part of the coaching staff because then that’s an extension of how we play our football," he said. "I don't separate set-pieces from everything else we do, in terms of the team we want to be. It all hopefully links in.

"Here we’ve split the roles between Mile [Jedinak] and Ryan Mason in terms of attacking and defensive set-pieces and they put a lot of work into it with the analysis staff. I'm sure every club does. Some have gone down the specialised route which I understand. It’s just it's not how I work. I always try to create a collective environment for everything we do, so that nothing is separated. I wouldn’t feel comfortable bringing in specialists for one particular area. Just for the way I work more than anything else."

Aren't you the one who has been clamoring for this guy? On your knees, mouth open like your life depended on it? And then this is all you have to say about it?
I know mate... I had my pants round my ankles, but against us... He was a bit shit (aside from the individual brilliance to lash home a free kick against the best keeper in the league)...!

Rumours abound that City will listen to offers for Jack Grealish in the summer.

I'd get Eze in instead. He can play there. More to his game imo. Grealish doesn't do it for me. He doesn't score goals, he can't skin a defender and 99% of the time he pulls back and sends it sideways. Would probably cost more in Fee and wages too....

The fees and wages would certainly scupper the deal but if we knew we were getting Aston Villa Grealish then I’d probably be interested

In fairness, Grealish probably fits us better than he does City. But I'm still a no. Calves look like implants.

I personally love Grealish, sort of a street footballer vibe about him that I like, but probably not Ange's style of player. Eze would be absolutely brilliant for us.

Apparently we'll be listening to offers for Richarlison in the summer with Hojbjerg and Royal expected to go as well (amongst others).

Also an "attractive" bid for Bissouma apparently might leave the club with a "decision to make".

Bisouma has been playing like his head is elsewhere for the last dozen games....

Big shorts and Richi can do one... I love Richie's shit housery but he just hasn't worked.

Hoijberg will be a miss... One of our most consistent performers this season... Yeah he may not be at the level we think we need but he does give 100% effort every time he pulls on he shirt.

As far as I can gather, Hojbjerg is definitely going no matter what. I agree that he's been excellent again this season but he deserves to be a regular starter somewhere.

They can all be moved on this summer.
