8am Tottenham news LIVE: N’Koudou in Turkey for Besiktas switch, Alli could miss Newcastle, Pochettino fumes at new transfer window, Eriksen will only join three clubs – The Sun
SPURS were once again the beneficiaries of a stoppage time VAR decision as they nabbed a point at Man City.
Mauricio Pochettino's men were clinical at the Etihad as they took a point back to North London and now have a week to prepare for the visit of out-of-form Newcastle.
Follow ALL of the latest Spurs news, updates and gossip below…
GEORGES-KEVIN NKOUDOU is closing in on his move to Besiktas, according to L'Equipe.
It is reported that Spurs will offload the out-of-favour French winger for around £4.5million.
He is expected to pen a four-year deal with the Turkish club – who finished third in the Super Lig last season.
Nkoudou has failed to live up to expectations in North London since he joined from Marseille in 2016.
LUCAS MOURA is a “problem” for Mauricio Pochettino, according to Paul Robinson.
The 27-year-old came off the bench to bag the equaliser against Manchester City on Saturday.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “It would appear it's becoming more and more apparent that [he must fit him in].
“He gives Spurs another dynamic, his pace and directness gives them another element, he immediately puts defenders on the back foot because they know he's got the pace and they know he can run in behind.
“He's coming a problem for Pochettino because he's almost becoming a player that HAS to be picked.”
KIERAN TRIPPIER has been compared to David Beckham by Spanish press.
The 28-year-old completed a £20million move from Tottenham to Atletico Madrid this summer.
And he's already proved to be a huge hit after he bagged the only assist during the 1-0 win over Getafe.
After the match, an article by Spanish publication Marca read: “His crossing is almost akin to his idol, David Beckham, and you could tell as he delivered the cross for Morata on Sunday evening which was his first assist in his debut game.”
DELE ALLI remains a doubt for Tottenham's clash against Newcastle on Sunday.
The England international has missed the opening two Premier League games with a hamstring injury.
He has been seen training outside this week, but Pochettino is not willing to rush his recovery.
PremierInjuries claim that he has a 25 per cent chance of making an appearance against the Magpies.
GEORGES-KEVIN N'KOUDOU is closing in on a move to Besiktas, according to L'Equipe.
It is understood that the French winger will be offered a four-year deal.
Tottenham are only expected to recoup around £4million for the 24-year-old.
He has failed to live up to expectations with the North London club since he joined from Marseille in 2016.
