Player tells club he’s joining Tottenham – ‘Already chosen his destination’ and it’s Spurs

Tottenham’s hopes of signing Ansu Fati from Barcelona appear to have been handed a major boost, with the player telling rival bidders Sevilla that he’s going to the Premier League club.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the player will be heading to Tottenham this week against the desires of his father.

The article claims that Fati “has already chosen his destination,” which will be Tottenham, and that he is “listening to offers” to leave the Camp Nou this summer.

They have been trying to get his signature for the past 24 hours, and earlier today, a report said they were near the head of the line.

That looks to have resulted from Fati’s decision to reject a move to Sevilla in favor of one to the Premier League. All that is needed for the transaction to be completed is for Tottenham to reach an agreement with Barcelona.

Despite his father’s wishes for him to go to Sevilla, the player has made the decision, and it is now up to Spurs to complete the transaction as soon as possible.

Spurs: Report shares Tosin Adarabioyo update

The Englishman might be leaving Fulham.

An intriguing update on Tottenham Hotspur and their potential last-minute acquisition of Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo has surfaced in a report.

Who will Spurs sign?

Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham, is anticipated to try to make a last-minute acquisition before the deadline on Friday. Recent links have included Barcelona’s Ansu Fati and winger Brennan Johnson of Nottingham Forest.

Under Ange’s leadership, the north Londoners have had a successful start to the new Premier League season. The Australian coach has implemented an exciting, attack-minded style of game.

With a draw at Brentford on the opening day and victory over Man United and Bournemouth by scores of 2-0, Tottenham has yet to lose in the league.

Spurs’ defense, though, may have shown some cracks on Tuesday night when Postecoglou’s significantly altered team was eliminated by Fulham from the Carabao Cup second round.

Tottenham’s first cup run and potential to take home a significant trophy since 2008 have already been derailed by the penalty shootout defeat at Craven Cottage.

That outcome may have emphasized the Lilywhites’ need to reinforce before the transfer deadline, and it has been reported that they’re still on the lookout for a new defender in addition to pursuing deals for players like Fati/Johnson.

Despite Postecoglou’s traditional back four’s strong start, Spurs conceded 63 league goals last season, more than any other team above 15th place. This statistic supports the necessity for improved defensive quality.

Reliable journalist Alasdair Gold said earlier this month that the Tottenham manager sought to bolster the defense even more after bringing in Micky van de Ven.

According to Gold on his YouTube channel (via TBR), “Postecoglou said that himself in his press conference on Friday. He pretty much said how there are areas in defense, midfield, and attack that they can upgrade on as well.”

“I would monitor what transpires. If Spurs can get the players out of the squad first, I have a sneaking suspicion that they have a number of deals ready to put in place.

After being linked numerous times during the most of the summer transfer window, Adarabioyo is still reportedly a target for Tottenham. Monaco of Ligue 1 is also showing strong interest in the player.

That is what 90min claims, claiming that they are still interested in making a last-minute transfer for the former Man City and Blackburn defender. The possibility of joining Spurs is reportedly “appealing” to Adarabioyo, while Everton has also initiated discussions about a transfer.

Eric Dier, 29, may not leave before the deadline despite Tottenham’s offer for him to go the opposite way to Fulham.

How good is Tosin Adarabioyo?

Adarabioyo has only made one league appearance for the Whites this year, but according to WhoScored, he was one of Fulham’s top players last year based on average match rating.

The enormous 6 foot 5 defender was dubbed “magnificent” by members of the media for some of his Craven Cottage performances. He also made more clearances per 90 than any other player on their team.
