Roy Hodgson’s comments about Kyle Walker suggest that our defender will remain as England’s first choice right back for this World Cup if he can recover from injury. 2013/14 marked a second difficult season at White Hart Lane however and rumours suggest that he may not be Tottenham’s preferred selection when the new campaign begins.

We’ve seen plenty of players linked with Danny Rose’s position at left back but it’s tough to recall a suggested transfer on the other side of defence prior to today’s story. AC Milan’s Ignazio Abate is the man connected with a summer move to Spurs but one report goes on to suggest that the switch may depend on Daniel Levy appointing Massimiliano Allegri as the new head coach.

Abate is 27 and has been with his current club since 2004 although he has experienced five different loan spells in that period. However, he has now nailed down a first team place and at the time of writing has 18 caps for the full Italian side.

Milan are looking to buy big over the summer and need to offload in order to raise funds. Abate would be a strong addition to the squad but does the Franco Baldini / Allegri link make it less likely?

    • Tom cleverly is my favourite name on the list!
      Because we don’t already have enough goal shy, s**t midfielders!!

  1. Dont understand how we can be signing players when we don t know who the next manager is ?.

    Unless that prick baldini is staying or worse still tim

  2. How stupid can you get Tom cleverly seriously. If he can’t get in the man u team why do we want him in ours we should not be doing mid table sloppy second players

  3. We need a whole New back line all centre backs apart from vertonghen and chriches who I believe will be amazing next season. We need to sell holtby (no motivation) sell dembele( yeah said it) capoue, Townsend( yeah I said it) Mr I’m going to run all the way down the wing then come back around to the outside of the box and try shoot he is extremely selfish. Lennon ( Mr I trip over the ball three times a match) rose, walker( Mr all I do is run and nothing more and leave gaps in the defense) and sadly to say sigurdsson ( I like you but it’s just not going to work for you at spurs) this should raise alot of money to upgrade the squad and give the youth like Carroll to shine… Agreed

  4. Now avb is gone hulk and coentrao will never join spurs so we can forget that… Alderwald would be good, I’d take caulker back. And give a youth defender a spot. Left back – why not evra he has a year or two to offer something and he’s free l, right back – dani alves unsettled, Micah Richards, Abate, left midfield lavezzi (lamela could have a bromance with him), cuadrado, feghouli, Jesse Rodriguez.. Attacking midfield, kagawa, Honda, hamsik, guarin.. Striker – Jackson Martinez, luiz muriel, el shawarry, rodrigo… All very capable and a upgrade to our side
