According to sources, Tottenham has launched an offer for Real Madrid forward Rodrygo, with Daniel Levy leading the charge

Harry Kane was allowed to leave Tottenham earlier this summer for Bayern Munich for £86 million, while the total price might be closer to £100 million depending on various add-ons.

They failed to fully replace the England international this summer, instead relying on Brazilian international Richarlison as the team’s key striker.

There have even been rumors that Tottenham squandered the money from Kane’s sale before letting their top scorer leave the club.

Despite losing in the Carabao Cup to Fulham on Tuesday night, Ange Postecoglou’s side has made a solid start to the post-Kane era, collecting seven points from their first three Premier League games while playing front-foot aggressive football.

Postecoglou, on the other hand, is still looking to bolster his squad with attacking players like Brennan Johnson from Nottingham Forest and Ansu Fati from Barcelona.

According to the Spanish newspaper Nacional, Tottenham has “made an offer” for Rodrygo to Real Madrid, with €100 million (£86 million) on the “table” for Florentino Perez to consider.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is said to be “obsessed” with the 22-year-old Brazilian international, who made 34 appearances in La Liga last season, providing nine goals and eight assists.

However, with only a few weeks until the transfer deadline on September 1st, finding a suitable replacement and accepting Tottenham’s offer “seems like an impossible mission” for Real Madrid.

If Real Madrid had been successful in getting Kylian Mbappe this summer and now “cannot afford to lose more players in attack,” it could have been “possible.”

Because the La Liga club “will not even consider selling” Rodrygo before the transfer season closes, Tottenham will be forced to “look for other alternatives.”

According to Nacional, “Rodrygo, for his part, has never thought about leaving Madrid.” He is content in his current position and feels at peace in Spain’s capital. He will also not leave to play for a less ambitious team, such as Tottenham.

Clement Lenglet, who spent last season on loan at Tottenham, has been linked with a return to the club before the transfer market closes. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, on the other hand, argues that Postecoglou was never interested.

Tottenham are about to break their transfer record for a superb Premier League player as Postecoglou devastates West Ham’s plans.

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou is reportedly pressuring the club to make a firm bid for Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha, despite the fact that any transfer is anticipated to set a new club record fee

After joining Spurs from Celtic earlier this summer, the Greek-born Australian officially starts his new role as manager today. But the 57-year-old is already in charge, having a voice in the club’s early summer transfer negotiations.

Indeed, it was Postecoglou‘s call earlier this week to sign both Guglielmo Vicacrio and James Maddison. The goalkeeper joined Spurs for £17 million from Empoli. Meanwhile, Maddison has joined Leicester for a fee of £40 million.

Spurs, on the other hand, are far from done this summer and want to pursue Wolfsburg defender Micky van de Ven next. To that goal, chairman Daniel Levy has initiated ‘direct conversations’ with Fabrizio Romano, who claims he is “keen” on the transfer.

Tottenham is also aiming to strengthen their center midfield. Postecoglou is also pressing Levy to approach Fulham for Palhinha, according to The Sun (July 1, page 67).

After joining from Sporting Lisbon for £20 million, the Portugal midfielder had a fantastic debut season in the Premier League. The 27-year-old appeared in 40 games in all competitions, scoring four times.

His tigerish antics in the engine room, though, drew the most attention. With 147 tackles, he was the division’s leading tackler. Moises Caicedo came in second with 100 points, demonstrating how the Portuguese was definitely in a league of his own.

This form has prompted to speculation that West Ham are interested in luring Palhinha across London to replace Declan Rice.
The Cottagers, understandably, are not eager to let Palhinha depart without a fight. Despite spending only £20 million for him a year ago, they are now said to be worth roughly £90 million.

Nonetheless, West Ham are apparently drafting a bid in the hope that a sizable offer will persuade Fulham to sell.

Postecoglou, on the other hand, has made Palhinha his next key priority for Spurs.

To that purpose, they are apparently considering a transaction much above their existing club record of £60 million paid to Everton for Richarlison.

If they are to sign, Postecoglou will need to persuade Levy to swallow some of his pride. This is due to the fact that the Portuguese star was on Tottenham‘s radar last summer. But, after passed up the chance to recruit him for £20 million, Levy will be disappointed to have to pay a far higher amount again.

Furthermore, with Palhinha turning 28 next week, Levy may well wonder how many years he has left at the top.

Spurs may fund the transaction by selling three players.

Postecoglou, on the other hand, appears to be unfazed and apparently intends to persuade Levy to launch a bid.

spurs, on the other hand, may fund the transaction by releasing a number of players. Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso are unlikely to be included in the new manager’s plans.

Furthermore, rumours say that the club is eager to sell Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who is becoming a target for Atletico Madrid.

Some may be surprised by the trade, but there are concerns about whether the Dane is mobile enough to play Postecoglou‘s style.
