Tottenham tipped to move for Zaha and Barkley

Tottenham will move for Wilfried Zaha and Ross Barkley this summer, the Daily Mirror say.

Both Crystal Palace winger Zaha and Everton’s England midfielder Barkley have been linked with potential moves to White Hart Lane.

And the Mirror again claim that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is determined to add both Barkley, who has also been linked with Chelsea, and Zaha to his squad.

Tottenham and Arsenal are among a number of clubs tracking Florian Lejeune, again according to the Mirror.

The Eibar defender, who previously had a spell at Manchester City, reportedly has a release clause of £8.7m in his contract.

The Mirror reckon Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has had Lejeune, 25, scouted and has received favourable reports about him.

And with Spurs tipped to sign a centre-back this summer, they too are said to be interested in the Frenchman.

The Mirror also claim Chelsea will have to pay Thibaut Courtois more than £200,000 a week in order to prevent him joining Real Madrid.

The Blues goalkeeper has repeatedly been linked with a move to Spain and is said to be Real’s top transfer target for this summer.

The Mirror suggest that Courtois knows he is in demand and that Chelsea face a battle to persuade him to commit his long-term future to the club by signing a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

The newspaper also predicts that Bournemouth will make another attempt to sign Asmir Begovic from the Blues at the end of the season.

Back-up keeper Begovic was prevented from leaving to join the Cherries during the January transfer window because Chelsea were unable to bring in a replacement for him before the deadline.
