Here is your Tottenham morning digest on Monday, November 8.
Spurs backed to make Vlahovic offer
Tottenham have been backed to make an offer for reported Arsenal target Dusan Vlahovic in the summer transfer window.
Reports from last week claimed that the Gunners had met with Fiorentina as they looked to strike out a deal for the Serbia international and that they were also willing to meet their £68million valuation of the forward.
However, according to Italian transfer expert Niccolo Ceccarini, Spurs could be set to battle their north London rivals for Vlahovic’s signature next summer.
He said (via Fiorentina News): “Today’s news is Arsenal’s offer to Fiorentina for Vlahovic. The figure we are talking about is very important, but in addition to the interest of the Gunners, I also expect an offer from Tottenham, perhaps in June.
“However, I’m not so convinced that he can move to London. I expect more teams to come out for the Serbian in the summer.”
Conte gives verdict on Spurs draw
Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has admitted he is “happy” after his side were held away at Everton on Sunday afternoon in his first Premier League game in charge of his new club.
In a pretty non-eventful game at Goodison Park, Conte saw Spurs settle for a point, despite some late pressure from the visitors that saw Giovani Lo Celso hit the woodwork.
Speaking to the media after the match, Conte admitted he was happy with some of the things he saw on Merseyside.
“Honestly, I have to be happy for different reasons and the first that Goodison Park is not an easy place to come to play against Everton, especially when you had a week very intensive, I am talking emotionally for my players, not for the club,” the Italian said.
“After we play the game Thursday and I have to be happy because I started to see some tactical situations for sure we can improve and we have a lot of space for improvement. In different situations, tactically, physically but also the mentality.”

Emerson and Skipp impress
Emerson Royal and Oliver Skipp were arguably Tottenham’s standout performers in their draw with Everton, with football.london rating every player’s display here.
However, it wasn’t such a good day for the front three of Lucas Moura, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, who once again failed to land a shot on target for Spurs – with the issue of creativity once again evident for the north London outfit.
We now head into an international break, and after that it is a clash with Leeds United as Conte looks for his first Premier League victory in charge of Tottenham.
