Spurs news round-up: Thomas Meunier, Danny Rose in the headlines


Tottenham Hotspur are firmly on track to return to Premier League action with a bang.

With the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min back to fitness, Jose Mourinho has been working his players hard during the enforced break from action to ensure that they're in the best condition possible.

The squad are now back at Enfield and preparing for a return to top flight action when they take on Manchester United.

Plenty is going on off the pitch as well as the club look ahead to next season and start to eye up potential summer additions.

Here are the latest news stories to come out of North London in the last 24 hours.

Spurs in for Thomas Meunier

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a move for Thomas Meunier, according to the Daily Express.

The Paris Saint-Germain full-back is out of contract this summer and looks set to be available on a free transfer after not being offered a new deal.

Jose Mourinho is said to be a big fan of the 28-year-old, and believes that he would add a winning mentality to the North London side.

This could, in turn, spell the end of Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters who look likely to be surplus to requirements this summer.

Tottenham also eyeing move for Timothy Castagne

Tottenham are weighing up a move for Belgian right-back Timothy Castagne.

The Times claims that while Meunier is the priority, one alternative could be the 24-year-old who plays for Italian side Atalanta.

According to Transfermarkt's valuations, they consider Castagne to be worth £14.4m following his displays in Serie A.

Spurs ready to sell Danny Rose

Tottenham Hotspur are ready to sell Danny Rose this summer for a knock-down fee, per Football Insider.

Spurs loaned Rose out in the January transfer window, allowing him to join Newcastle United on a short-term deal.

And they are ready to accept just £5 million to move him on in the summer transfer window, as they are aware of the challenges faced by a number of clubs in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the report, Spurs rejected a bid of around £15m from Watford last summer but they could now take just a third of that to shift him.

PSG and Schalke were also said to be interested but the England international wanted to stay in the country.
