At the end of last week we picked up on reports that Spurs were chasing French international winger Antoine Griezmann. The Real Sociedad man had enjoyed a productive World Cup and it was claimed that the 23 year old was a target for a number of top sides around Europe.

We suggested that the list of interested parties may had put ourselves out of the running. High paying, Champions League qualified clubs such as Monaco, Chelsea and Bayern Munich were said to be involved and that may appear to have put us out of the race even before the ‘off’.

This afternoon, the Daily Star goes on to claim that the story has moved on and that we have actually made a bid. Unfortunately, this falls some way short of the asking price as our £15.8m compares to the player’s buy out clause which is set at £23.9m

If these reports are true then at least we might have gained an early advantage over our rivals but at the moment it’s hard to see where Spurs can even meet in the middle.



  1. What is the point of saving a few million (I KNOW it sounds ridiculous to say that) relative numbers thrown about, especially considering the compensation if you reach CL?

    I can understand trying to drive a bargain if you don’t really have a need and you’re just trying to strengthen the squad at your leisure, but why always make such low offers for quality players being chased by others?
    When has this worked before?

  2. Please Mr.Levy, bid £25m he’s worth it

    Walker Kaboul Vertonghen Davies

    This team might have a outside chance for a top 4 finish. Memphis Depay is also a great coup for whoever signs him. Add a CB to replace the hopefully outgoing Dawson.

  3. Before we start worrying about iffy frogs ,we have to sort out who we can get to play alongside Vertonghen. If we have to sign a wide player,both Konoplyanka and Depay are better and would be cheaper.

  4. Err, I would sell Naughton Kabul Dawson Rose Lennon Dembele Sandro And Sigurdson.

    Buy Davies, Micah Richards, Stones, Lascelles, Schneiderlin, Griezmann, J Rodriguez, Bony
