Tottenham are in action in the International Champions Cup today as they welcome Italian giants Inter Milan to North London.

It’s a final opportunity for Mauricio Pochettino to look at his side before they open up their Premier League campaign against newly-promoted Aston Villa on Saturday evening.

The Argentine has named a strong line-up for Spurs’ final pre-season outing, with the likes of Danny Rose, Jan Vertonghen, Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Kane all starting.

But there are two noticeable absentees in the Tottenham side – with former Ajax pair Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen both among the substitutes, just four days before the transfer window slams shut.

Both started against Real Madrid on Tuesday and is Pochettino simply rotating his team or could this suggest that the duo are on their way out of the club.

Having said that, Alderweireld looks unlikely to leave Spurs this week as his £25million release clause recently expired and clubs will be against paying a large transfer fee knowing he is available on a free next summer.

As for Eriksen, there has been uncertainty surrounding his future throughout the window and Tottenham have been heavily linked with Bruno Fernandes and Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso as potential replacements.



  1. I hope it’s just a matter of rotation, it’s always a dilemma when you sign a new player, to then leave them on the bench! I guess it could also be said that Danny Rose is more likely to leave, not sure about the arsenal speculation though?

  2. For goodness sake! No wonder other clubs call our fan base fragile! Seriously!? They will play the second half, so what are you on about!?

  3. I really hope that neither Toby nor Eriksen leave Spurs. They are both world class. But in the end It is up to the players to decide if they want to stay? And if they do, they should both get new and much improved contracts.
    As regards the comedy regarding Lo Celsius and Fernandez, I believe that there is a chance that we will lose both of them. Daniel Levy’s negotiations have have sometimes caused us severe problems.

  4. Danial Levy has done a great job at Spurs he needs to start thinking like a big club and stop messing around with these potential signings
