Tottenham morning headlines as Inter swap deal prepared and Timothy Castagne agent sends message

Here are the Tottenham Hotspur morning headlines for Friday, August 14.

Spurs ‘prepare bid’ for defensive target as part-exchange deal is mooted

Tottenham remain interested in Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar, according to reports in Italy.

The 25-year-old played his 100th Inter game this season, but remains on Jose Mourinho’s radar, so much so that a move for the Slovakian could reportedly see Tanguy Ndombele move in the opposite direction.

Spurs are on the hunt for a new centre-back, after Jan Vertonghen left following the expiry of his contract, and the Express cites reports in Italy claiming Skriniar could be allowed to leave Inter this summer.

Skriniar’s future is reportedly dependent on what happens with Inter manager Antonio Conte, with the report suggesting the defender could be allowed to leave if the at-risk manager stays at the club next season.

The London club have already completed their first signing of the close-season, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg joining from Southampton, while right-back Kyle Walker-Peters has moved in the opposite direction.

Release date announced for Tottenham’s Amazon documentary

The documentary series All Or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur is likely to look different from what some Spurs fans initially anticipated, following a season of upheaval.

Amazon’s cameras followed the team throughout the 2019/20 season, which saw long-serving manager Mauricio Pochettino dismissed and replaced by Mourinho.

The broadcaster has now announced a release date for the production, accompanying the announcement with a new trailer.

Spurs are the second Premier League side to form the basis of a documentary in the ‘All or Nothing’ series, following Manchester City allowing the cameras to follow them around in the 2017/18 campaign.

A number of American Football franchises have also received similar treatment for the series, which airs on Amazon Prime.

Spurs’ season, headlined by the dismissal of Pochettino and the recruitment of Mourinho as his replacement, will be available to watch from August 31 – less than a month before the 2020/21 Premier League season gets underway.

Spurs given good news in pursuit of Castagne

Tottenham’s pursuit of a new right-back has led them to Atalanta’s Timothy Castagne, and comments from the Belgian’s agent will give them confidence.

With Walker-Peters moving on and Serge Aurier linked with a switch away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, 25-year-old Castagne is among those mentioned in connection with a move to north London.

Castagne has been a big part of the Atalanta side which recorded back-to-back top four finishes in Serie A, and came off the bench in his side’s Champions League quarter-final against Paris Saint-Germain, but comments from the player’s agent, Zenon Melon, will pique Spurs’ interest.

“Timothy has done very well in the last three seasons,” the agent told HLM (via Football-Italia).

“But I don’t think he can do more than what he did at Atalanta. Now we will evaluate all the options.”

Castagne has played nearly 100 games for Atalanta since joining from Genk in 2017, and can play on the right or the left.

He has also become a bigger part of the Belgian national set-up since moving to Italy, and has started for his country alongside Spurs centre-back Toby Alderweireld.
