It’s rare to see a different transfer story doing the rounds but a new name has appeared this morning as Spurs are mentioned in connection with a move for Sochaux’s Ryad Boudebouz. The 23 year old Algerian international has been with his current club for his entire professional career but an excellent season back home is thought to have attracted the attention of Liverpool, Rubin Kazan and Tottenham ahead of the new campaign.
Boudebouz is in that dangerous position of having just a year left on his contract which always makes anyone suspicious of such rumours but he does look a prospect, with a good record of goals and assists which has improved in recent campaigns.
Meanwhile, a hunt for the Algerian may not be necessary after new life was breathed into Tottenham’s interest in Atletico Mineiro’s Brazilian midfielder Bernard. The youngster was thought to be heading for Borussia Dortmund after the media claimed a transfer fee of around £21 million but the player’s agent suggests that Spurs are the only name in the frame.
“Dortmund have not submitted a proposal and Tottenham are the only contenders,” said Hissa Moyses.
There’s been much talk today about a striker purchase as Spurs look to keep AVB at the club with a marquee signing but will the first new arrival at White Hart Lane be performing in the middle of the park next season?
