Paper round-up: Spurs linked with youngster, Palace exits expected

Tottenham will compete with Everton for the signing of Feyenoord’s Netherlands youth international midfielder Ozancan Kokcu at the end of the season, according to The Times.

The 18-year-old’s contract expires this summer and The Times say Feyenoord are resigned to losing him.

Spurs are not expected to make any additions during the final hours of what has been a quiet transfer window for them.

Other London clubs, however, have been active, including Crystal Palace – who have been tipped to trim their squad ahead of Tuesday’s deadline.

The Croydon Advertiser reports that Swansea want Palace’s South Korea winger Lee Chung-yong and that Eagles midfielder Jordon Mutch is on the verge of joining Reading on loan for the remainder of the season.

Meanwhile, the Mail have again linked with Fulham with Preston striker Callum Robinson.

Wolves and Cardiff City are also linked with the 21-year-old, who has scored seven goals this season.

The Mail say Fulham had a £2.5m bid for Robinson rejected earlier this month and that Preston want £4m.

There is inevitably speculation over the future of Brentford striker Scott Hogan as the transfer window enters its final stages.

The Sun, which went to press before news emerged that West Ham appear to be out of the running to sign Hogan, reports that a deal to take him to east London is almost complete.

The newspaper also claim Brentford insisted on a £1m payment should the Hammers win the Premier League title after signing Hogan.
