Tottenham transfer news: Ange Postecoglou gets major Harry Kane boost as £21.5m battle emerges

Tottenham transfer news: The latest Spurs headlines and gossip from the market with updates on Harry Kane, Victor Nelsson and Max Kilman.

Your morning Tottenham transfer round-up on Friday, June 9.

Tottenham have been dealt a boost in their bid to keep Harry Kane this summer due to the actions of none other than Real Madrid. The Spanish giants are seen as one of the potential destination for the Spurs great.

As Carlo Ancelotti’s side move closer to signing Jude Bellingham for over £100million it is only a dent in their budget for the window that makes a big-money move for Kane more unlikely.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano: “Jude Bellingham has completed medical tests as Real Madrid player — contracts are also signed, valid until June 2029. Understand Real plan is to present Jude at Bernabéu next week.”

Whilst Spurs bid to keep off any interested suitors, their main source of attraction has just splashed the cash elsewhere and even the giants of Madrid are unlikely to sanction two £100million deals in the same window. Either that or they’ve gotten ahead of the game and secured a deal early enough to make room for Kane.

Postecoglou set for first battle

Ange Postecoglou is set for a first fight with fierce north London rivals Arsenal, only this time it’s not on the pitch but in the transfer market.

It is said that both Arsenal and Spurs are keen on signing Galatasaray defender Victor Nelsson. He has had a stellar season in Turkey, playing 33 times in their title winning season and has a €25million (£21.5m) release clause. It is said that bids are yet to go above €15million (£12.9m), though.

Arsenal are also reportedly keen on his teammate, Sacha Boey. Both deals could be hard to complete, though, with Club president Dursun Ozbek saying neither are up for grans.

“We do not intend to sell any players,” Ozbek said earlier this year. “We have a very good squad, and we are fighting for the title. Besides Sacha Boey and Victor Nelsson, there are offers for three or four more players because the squad is a very good squad.”

Kilman interest

Wolves will consider bids for their English centre-back Max Kilman. It is said that he is one of the three main targets for Postecoglou alongside James Maddison and David Raya.

The 26-year-old has been central to Wolves’ success under Julen Lopetegui and started all but one of their games in the league last season. He has previously been on the radar for Chelsea as well as West Ham.

Kilman would pose a different type of signing for Spurs, who have favoured bigger names in recent years such as Richarlison or Yves Bissouma. His experience and speed at the back could be big attractions for the new manager, though.
