Here is your Tottenham Hotspur morning digest for Tuesday, December 28.
Manchester City are considering going back in for Tottenham striker Harry Kane, according to Eurosport.
City tried to bring Kane to the Etihad Stadium in the summer but the England captain stayed in N17 instead after the Lilywhites rebuffed the Citizens’ interest.
City boss Pep Guardiola has previously made it no secret of his admiration for the 28-year-old forward.
“He (Kane) is a player for Tottenham Hotspur and if Tottenham don’t want to negotiate, it is finished,” Guardiola said back in August
“I think Man City and many clubs in the world want to try to sign him, we are not an exception, but it depends on Tottenham.”
Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio has explained why Tottenham have an advantage over local rivals Arsenal in the pursuit of Dusan Vlahovic.
“It depends on which project, how much money is he being given,” Di Marzio told Wettfreunde.
“Arsenal, for example, his agents do not want to speak to them. They think Arsenal is not enough for him and his career.
“They think that Tottenham or Man City or Man Utd are more [of a] fit for him.
“Tottenham with Antonio Conte as coach, is the right fit for him. He could be a replacement for [Harry] Kane or even play with him, for one year. He can improve with Kane, by training with him, during the matches.”

Newcastle icon Alan Shearer has heaped praise on Spurs frontman Lucas Moura after the Lilywhites defeated Crystal Palace 3-0.
“[Conte has] certainly got them very well organised and he’s making a big difference to Lucas Moura, and also Oliver Skipp, who I thought was excellent,” Shearer said on BBC’s Match of the Day.
“They just couldn’t handle Lucas Moura today. The positions he got into, his ability to actually run with the ball caused them all sorts of problems.
“He was too quick for them – [for the opening goal] the give and go, Andersen can’t catch him and he puts it on a plate for Harry Kane – he’s not going to miss from there, thank you very much indeed.
“The way he starts [the second goal], Skipp there, who as I said I thought was excellent, really brave on the ball, started so many good moves off. But look at the way [Moura] gets it, look at his desire – he said he’s only a small guy!”
