    Has Levy got a wallet big enough to fit Laporte in it?

    No

    therefore £ notes it shall be

    they fit nicely

    What use is Laporte?

    can you play concerts on him?

    can he be used in conjunction with the skywalk somehow?

    I see no other use for him

    Levy’s thinking

    @PowerSpurs to confirm

    Manchester Evening News are claiming that both clubs have said this is bullshit. Wouldn't surprise me.

    @PowerSpurs to see if this works.

    Another couple of Serie A players have been linked:

    Dusan Vlahovic - Striker - Fiorentina.
    Joaquin Correa - Centre forward/ wing forward - Lazio.

    If Kane continues at his current form in the Euros then £100m seems generous

    Yeah because two bad games for England after 7 seasons of being outstanding will really drive his value down won’t it <laugh>

    Manchester City are ready to include Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus, 24, and England forward Raheem Sterling, 26, in any bid for 27-year-old England striker Harry Kane, who Tottenham value in the region of £150m. (Times - subscription required)

    I’d take both plus 90/100 mill

    everyone saying Jesus isn’t what we want/need but I can guarantee you we won’t get anyone better with the cash.

    Sterling might be all the negatives we see in his game but he’s a massive massive upgrade on anyone we got on the right

    There will be worse trios than Son, Jesus and Sterling at the top clubs.

    Son the Son of God & God according to Gareth. All we need is a ****ing aqueduct and the Spurs tour would be complete.
    I'd prefer Moses.

    He is, but they bigger issue with taking Jesus and/or Sterling plus £90m is that we've added 2 players in position we don't really need to. Back up striker of Jesus' quality isn't something to be sniffed at, but there are better and more cost effective options out there. As for Sterling, with Bergwijn, Lucas, Lo Celso and Lamela all able to play in that RAM position there isn't an urgent need to add him to the squad (also from what I've seen, Sterling tends to play in Son's position anyway). We also have no idea what formation the <new manager> will use. In Conte's system of 2 up front for example, we'd choose Son with <new striker> and both Sterling and Jesus would barely get a look in.

    So we'd gain a back up striker, add a 5th wide attacker and have the grand total of £90m to buy a 25 goal a season ST, two CBs, a RB and a CM.

    If we're aiming for a part exchange deal, it makes little sense to reduce Kane's fee through vanity signings. Which is why when it comes to City, they either include Laporte or Cancelo or they can piss off.

    Would sell Bergwijn and Lo Celso if anyone interested...both flatter to deceive too often

    What’s the point in Clarke? Non from what I can see tbh...he’s not breaking through

    Lucas I’d keep because I know he gives it his all at the very least every time

    If Kane goes then surely that is a position that needs strengthening...he wouldn’t be a back up, hes first choice surely?

    Don’t really think we are going to be strengthening our centrebacks...Levy is too stupid to click on to that urgent requirement.

    Sterling’s an upgrade on all our wingers/ wide forwards bar Son so I definitely think it’s not someone we should turn our noses up at.

    Lamela will likely be off this summer, Bergwijn had rumoured interest back in Holland and whilst I think he’s someone who can come good I also wouldn’t be devastated if we sold him, Lo Celso should be sold (but probably won’t be) and therefore Lucas is the only one I think Sterling would/ should face legitimate competition from.

    Though that said, this part exchange deal won’t happen, no City player is leaving them for us.

    Unlike Spurly though I still have faith in Clarke. I think there’s a player in there but he’s had **** luck with loans and then an injury that ruined his season with Stoke. Not saying he’ll become a world beater but a potential decent squad option. I’d love to see him be a player that gets chances in the ECL this coming season under the new manager.
