    If they are trying to create interest in him or get Utd to stump up more cash, at least use a plausible club like City or Chelsea that would pay that kind of money.

    My local team here in Norway is probably a more likely destination for Zlatan than Emirates Marketing Project under Pep ;)

    Other than that I agree. To be fair though, if this is Zlatan's representatives trying to build interest the United negotiators have proven themselves just about incompetent enough to believe that we might be in for him.

    Yeah but think of all the mileage the anti Levy coven will get out of it when we don't sign him.

    West Ham are being linked with everyone. Either they are the new us (in that every agent uses their name to drum up interest in their player) or West Ham are chucking around a lot cash.

    The Dildo brothers have said they want to bring in a top striker, problem is no top striker wants to join them.

    Tottenham transfer news: Troy Deeney is top target for Mauricio Pochettino as they attempt to get quality cover for Harry Kane

    TOTTENHAM are lining up a shock swoop for Troy Deeney.

    The North Londoners are eyeing the Watford striker as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season’s Champions League campaign.

    Spurs chiefs are about to finalise their wish-list of summer transfer targets.

    Deeney is not the club’s MAIN strike target, but he is one of the players they are looking to sign.

    The Hornets skipper, 27, scored 13 Prem goals to help his newly-promoted team finished 13th in the top flight last season.

    But it was formidable work-rate and willingness to lay on goals for his Watford team-mate Odion Ighalo that most impressed Mauricio Pochettino as they look bring in forwards who can cover for and play alongside Harry Kane.

    Spurs are also trying to seal a deal for Marseille’s £30million-rated striker Michy Batshuayi.

    But that would not affect their move for Deeney, a player they believe could become a cult figure at White Hart Lane.

    I like Deeney, but I doubt very much that he's our first choice.

    Lacazette apparently is according to the Mirror.

    Ottawa, actually.
    There aren't a 'lot of signings elsewhere', at least not yet. I don't think anyone's suggested that yet. My own suggestion is that it's possible to do good business before tournaments like the Euros begin, and clubs have conducted such business already this close season, even with their great number and their shared, unfortunate handicap of not being Tottenham.

    However, I don't particularly think waiting until after the Euros when the mad scramble begins anyway is a particularly well thought-out strategy if that's what we're doing by choice; seems somewhat backwards to me. If we're forced into it by top targets refusing to negotiate till after the Euros, fine, no problems with waiting (even if, as I mentioned, these tournaments should be factored into common transfer strategies by now; perhaps by adopting different approaches to players in off-seasons with international tournaments?). But doing it by choice? Nah, although fwiw, I don't think that's what we're aiming to do this summer, thankfully.

    I don't really agree that doing your business early is overestimated as something that brings significant bonuses. Hits and misses aside, early transfers can be bedded into summer training, can get up to speed quicker, can sort out the off-the-pitch aspects of moving (perhaps to another country if they're coming from abroad) and settling in prior to the season beginning, and can be more fruitfully employed in terms of fitting into a team's overall plan as opposed to either being thrown in to real matches see where they fit or benched for the early part of the season while the manager decides where and how to deploy the player on the training field. To me, those are enormous advantages, especially given the emphasis on training and tactical understanding inherent in Bielsa-esque tactics like the ones Poch uses.

    So unless we're not adapting to the circumstances with our strategy you think we're doing perfectly fine?

    Out of curiosity, what is your local team in Norway?
