MORNING, FOOTBALL FANS
Harry Kane’s transfer saga continues to dominate the headlines this summer.
The England forward did NOT travel with Spurs to Portugal for their Europa Conference League clash with Pacos de Ferreira tonight – despite being named in Nuno Espirito Santo’s 25-man squad.
But Kane, 28, did break his social media silence for the first time since his side’s 1-0 win over would-be suitors Manchester City on Sunday.
He posted a picture of himself in full Tottenham training gear, captioned: “Another session in the bank.”
Asked about whether Kane would be available for Sunday’s trip to Wolves, boss Nuno Espirito Santo was non-committal.
He said: “Kane is feeling better. His fitness is getting better and better every day. He will join the group on Friday then we will make the decision.”
Across North London, Arsenal have reportedly completed the signing of Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid for around £30million.
As per David Ornstein the deal is done, with the Norwegian former loanee agreeing to a five-year contract at Emirates Stadium.
Yesterday was a busy day for the Gunners, as they also reportedly sealed a deal for Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
The North Londoners were linked with the Blades stopper earlier in the window, but baulked at their £35m valuation.
According to Ornstein, however, the two parties have agreed on a fee worth an initial £24m, with another £6m in potential bonuses likely to only be reached if Ramsdale becomes Arsenal’s No1.
Elsewhere in the Premier League, Kenedy and Emerson Palmieri joined Michy Batshuayi in the loan exodus out of Chelsea this summer – with all three having signed new deals before swiftly being sent out on loan.
Kenedy heads to Flamengo, where Man United’s Andreas Pereira is also set to sign – while Emerson joins Lyon and Batshuayi is off to Besiktas.
