A series of updates surrounding the ongoing transfer efforts of the powers that be at Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur have come to the fore late on Friday evening.
This, of course, comes amid a last-minute push to both add to, and thin out the squad at the disposal of new boss Ange Postecoglou.
First, on the side of potential incomings, word has come to the fore that Spurs have set their sights on another member of capital rivals’ Chelsea’s ranks.
The player in question? Trevoh Chalobah.
After seeing an earlier approach for Conor Gallagher fall through, the Lilywhites brass have returned to the negotiating table, on this occasion eyeing a loan deal for stopper Chalobah.
The 24-year-old has been hotly tipped for a deadline day exit from Stamford Bridge, with both Bayern Munich and Nottingham Forest having already tried and failed with respective swoops.
It is now the turn of Tottenham to test Chelsea’s resolve, though, keen to bring Chalobah in on a season-long loan.
It remains to be seen whether Todd Boehly and co. will be open to dealing with a direct rival, so late in the window.
Turning attentions towards potential exits from north London, out-of-favour shot-stopper Hugo Lloris, it has been revealed, is too the subject of a late-window approach from a Premier League club.
Newcastle United are the suitors, evidently intent on adding experience behind no.1 Nick Pope.
The latest reports, however, point towards a deal being altogether unlikely to come to fruition.
This comes with Lloris himself not interested in the prospect of a move to St. James’ Park, hopeful of joining a club with whom he is guaranteed a more prominent role.
