Tottenham are ready to spend huge sums to sign three of the brightest youngs stars in world football, Manchester United have been told their asking price for a midfield star is too high, while Tuesday’s Euro Paper Talk claims Newcastle will make a high-profile Germany star the first signing of their new era.


Tottenham are pushing hard to sign Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni amid claims their transfers chief Fabio Paratici has held secret talks over a deal with Monaco.

Monaco midfielder Tchouameni has made headlines and subsequently attracted transfer interest with his performances. Indeed, Chelsea have had some of the strongest links so far.

But Manchester United and Bayern Munich have also been mentioned as suitors for a player regarded as the best young midfielder in Europe.

However, prising away from Monaco will not come cheap. Indeed, reports state the Ligue 1 outfit will demand £55m (€65m) to sanction his sale.

As per Calciomercato, Paratici has already held talks with Monaco to state Tottenham’s intentions to meet that price.

Furthermore, they state Spurs are ready to sign both Tchouameni and Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic in January. The pair will cost a combined £89m (€105m).

Spurs’ ambitions don’t halt there either.

As per Tuttomercatoweb, Paratici is also looking to sign Roma midfielder Ebrima Darboe.

The 20-year-old Gambian is emerging as one of the best young stars in Serie A. Aware of his talents, Paratici is looking to lure him to Tottenham in a potentially explosive new midfield alongside Tchouameni.

Roma, however, are aware the youngster is worthy of a payrise and are hoping to tie Darboe down to a huge new deal.
