Carlos Vinicius’ time in North London has been curious, coming in as a highly rated & confident lad yet his performances reflect the opposite. His underwhelming spell at N17 means Tottenham are ready to send the Brazilian back to Benfica, as search for his replacement commences with Ivan Toney the most recent to be linked with a move to North London stadium.
But all may not be over for Carlos, as according to a report by Italian news outlet Calciomercato, Jose Mourinho could be looking at the 26-year-old to take him to Roma.
It’s just about a day to Roma announcing José Mourinho, and speculations over who he’d bring with him have already started – Erik Lamela being one of those speculated.
According to the report, Mourinho wants to add competition upfront for Edin Dzeko and Borja Mayoral.
Jose Mourinho brought Carlos Vinicius to Spurs, yet the pair haven’t had the best of times together with Vinicius only starting three in the Premier League. Of course, Carlos Vinicius joined only in the capacity to deputise for Harry Kane. Though his display were rather disappointing and surely he’d be frustrated with himself.
Tottenham does have a £36 million option to keep Vinicius, but Spurs are nowhere planning to activate that option – which leaves it open if José wants to sign him again at AS Roma.
It could be argued that Carlos Vinicius didn’t get enough time to prove himself, though did give glimpses of what he was at Benfica. And it’s believed that Spurs, who understandably are reluctant to pay £36million, may rival José & AS Roma if Benfica lowers the price.
In March, Daily Mail reported that Tottenham are prepared to offer £17million for Carlos Vinicius, and given the problems the North-London-based club has had over the years to find a reasonable backup to Harry Kane, it would make sense to keep him.
Though now Spurs will have to fend off competitions from former boss, it seems.The post José Mourinho target Tottenham loanee Carlos Vinicius as he prepares for Roma first appeared on Tottenham Insight.

Tottenham confirmed on their official website that Oliver Skipp has been ruled out for atleast six weeks having undergone a procedure to repair a metatarsal fracture sustained on loan at newly-promoted Norwich City.
The youngster had surgery to mend the fracture in his foot, and this type of course of action can generally take around six weeks to fully recover, meaning the England U21 international could miss the initial stages of pre-season depending on how he progresses his recovery.
“Oliver Skipp has undergone surgery to repair a metatarsal fracture.
“Oliver has spent the season on loan at Norwich City and sustained the injury late on during their 4-1 win against Reading on Saturday, a game which secured the Canaries the Championship title.
The England Under-21 international will undergo a period of recovery and is expected to return to training during the pre-season period.”
Skipp has been a sensation with the Canaries in the Championship, helping Daniel Farke’s side to promotion back to the Premiership and featuring for the men in Yellow and Green in all of forty-five league games so far this season.
The 20-year-old has gone strength to strength with each passing year, after breaking through under Mauricio Pochettino. He might not be able to take the field for the rest of the season, but featuring in 45 games and maintain performance consistency is an incredible achievement.
Although Skipp will miss out on pre-season owing to his surgery – he has shown he needs a taste of big league and big games with a full season of Championship football under his belt.The post Spurs’ official website confirm Oliver Skipp surgery first appeared on Tottenham Insight.
Ryan Sessegnon joined Tottenham from London rivals Fulham back in 2019, but the start to his Spurs career hasn’t gone as planned having being loaned out to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim for continual minutes on the pitch.

Ryan Sessegnon joined Tottenham from London rivals Fulham back in 2019, but the start to his Spurs career hasn’t gone as planned having being loaned out to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim for continual minutes on the pitch.
And the 20-year-old sitting in Germany is thinking about new managerial speculations at N17, with his former boss Scott Parker said to be one of the names in the hat. Sessegnon featured briefly under Fulham’s boss when he took charge initially in2019, and rates him very eminently.
Although Parker is not an immediate target, he is one of the personnel Daniel Levy & Co. are keeping tabs on.
Ryan Sessegnon was asked about having his former gaffer at Spurs amid the ongoing rumours on TALKSport: “That would be very good! Everyone knows the relationship I have with Scott. He’s a top guy, top man and a top coach. He’s just an all-round great guy. I played with him in his last season I think in professional football and my first. He’s someone that has obviously always believed in me as well.
“They [Fulham] have got fantastic results against some of the big teams where other teams wouldn’t have thought they would get those type of points. Scott has got them playing the right type of football; that’s what I admire about him.
“He obviously has a philosophy of play and sticks to it and all the players are buying into that. Recently, it hasn’t been so good for them in terms of results, but I think the performances and effort is still there.”
Scott Parker has done astonishingly well at Fulham, bringing them back up from the Championship last season via the play-offs just the year after relegation, and played some admiring football in Fulham’s return to the top flight. With The Cottagers needing some interesting results to make sure Craven Cottage stays a Premier League stadium cometh the next season – it will be gripping to see what happens with Parker in the summer.
His track record suggests that Fulham will stick with him, and despite his Charismatic presence on the sidelines – there is still a long way for Scott. Perhaps, Tottenham should admire him from the distance at this point.The post Ryan Sessegnon claims Spurs-linked Scott Parker plays “right type of football” first appeared on Tottenham Insight.
The last 5 years have seen various top clubs in Europe invest in young talent all over the world, however, the trend suggests that the investment in Brazilians has gone through the roof in the past 5-6 years.

The last 5 years have seen various top clubs in Europe invest in young talent all over the world, however, the trend suggests that the investment in Brazilians has gone through the roof in the past 5-6 years.
Players like Rodrygo, Vinicius jr, Gabriel Jesus, Kayky, Gabriel Martinelli, Metinho, and several others have either had moves to top clubs or have had various suitors from all over Europe.
The latest prospect from Brazil, however, is Corinthians Paulista’s superstar Rodrigo Varanda, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham in the summer, and Spurs are said to be heavily interested in securing the services of the 18-year-old talent.
A product of the Corinthians youth set-up, Rodrigo Varanda is currently one of the most exciting prospects in the Brazilian market due to his impressive performances this season. The 2003 born midfielder joined the senior squad this season after he showcased his incredible potential in the U-17 side.
Moreover, Corinthians have previously produced the likes of Ronaldo Nazario, Rivaldo, Carlos Tevez, Marquinhos, and several other ex and current world superstars. Their youth set up is one of the finest academies in the world which ensures that the players that come out of it are of huge potential and with proper coaching and development, the sky is the ceiling.
Rodrigo, at the time of writing, has played 8 games out of a possible 11 for the club this season and has mostly impacted the game as a substitute. He has, however, played the entire 90 minutes in both of Corinthians’ Copa Brasil games this season. The Brazilian does have 1 goal and 1 assist in this period, but it is the 18-year-old’s performances on the pitch that have caught the eye of several European clubs.
He, like most Brazilians, is fast, athletic, strong on the ball, and highly skillful with the ball. Currently, the teenager plays as a second striker for the club, but has also played on either wing, such is his versatility. Rodrigo’s finishing is one of his key aspects as the forward find good positions in and around the box to link up play or to latch on to through balls.
The Brazilian’s playing style strikes a very close resemblance with Richarlison, who is currently plying his trade in the Premier League with Merseyside outfit, Everton. Like Richarlison, Rodrigo Varanda operates behind the central striker or acts as a supporting forward to make late runs into the box or link-up play on the edge of the box. While Rodrigo may not be as tall as Richarlison, he is a fierce character in aerial duels. Rodrigo has also developed the defensive side of his game, with the forward cutting out passing lanes and intercepting the ball high up the pitch.
Tottenham, who recently, procured Carlos Vinicius on loan from Benfica are not confident of sealing a permanent move for the player, and in such a situation, Rodrigo Varanda could be the perfect replacement. While the 18-year-old lacks the experience of playing in a big European league, the like of Rodrygo and Vinicius in Real Madrid coupled with Gabriel Martinelli at Arsenal are evidence enough that with the proper coaching and sufficient game-time, Rodrygo could light up the Premier League.
Moreover, with Harry Kane, Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Heung Min-Son all edging towards the wrong side of 30, Spurs need to develop replacements for them while it also helps to keep a sense of competition in the squad- all of which Rodrigo Varanda can provide.
As per HITC, Corinthians have set an £8.5 million price tag on the youngster and Spurs seem to be genuinely interested in securing the services of the Brazilian talent. Rodrigo Varanda’s talent is supreme and if Tottenham are genuinely interested, this move could surely take place in the summer.The post Could Rodrigo Varanda be on his way to Tottenham Hotspur? first appeared on Tottenham Insight.

Various managers have been subject to links with the vacant managerial job at Tottenham Hotspur stadium, and Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini is the latest to be linked with a switch to North London – according to transfer guru Duncan Castles, who spoke about the links on the Transfer Window Podcast.
Gian Piero Gasperini is very different from all the managers linked with a move to fill in for José Mourinho, the 63-year-old is the blend of charismatic football and experience – with Spurs desperately in need of both.
The Italian has been at Atalanta since 2016 and is on his way to claim Champions League qualification in the ongoing campaign. With Antonio Conte kissing the Scudetto with Inter Milan ending Juventus domination, there is a lot to play for, for a place in next season’s elite European competition.
The 63-year-old has been on the touchlines for 234 games for the Serie A outfit, leading them to 124 wins, 59 draws, and 51 losses. Gasperini’s win percentage of 52.99 makes him a decent replacement for José Mourinho.
Atalanta’s boss has won the Serie A Coach of the Year accolade for the past couple of seasons, which shows the quality he brings to Hotspur Way.
Duncan Castles claim that Tottenham have already made initial contact with Gasperini over the club’s managerial vacancy at N17. Further Castles asserts that the reply from the Italian was relatively positive which could augur well for Spurs after multiple setbacks post José Mourinho’s departure. Julian Nagelsmann has penned his loyalties with Bayern Munich, Erik ten Hag extended his stay at Ajax and Jesse Marsch will fill in for Julian Nagelsmann in Germany.
Gian Piero Gasperini has done great things during his time in Bergamo, having worked wonders with the youngsters at his disposal. And if he blends in well, Spurs could thrive under him.
Some of the names linked with a move to North London have been underwhelming, but Gasperini is one of the tops, if no the top, names linked.The post Tottenham are eyeing Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini first appeared on Tottenham Insight.

Tottenham Hotspur has a following of ardent fans over the world and particularly in England. The 2020/2021 season has been yet another topsy-turvy season for the London club, with them languishing in 6th position and out of European places for next season with 4 games to go. To add fuel to the fire, they were dumped out of the Europa League by Dinamo Zagreb, a competition they should’ve been in till the semi-finals at least considering the quality of squad and manager they have. Then the recent sacking of Jose Mourinho just a week before a League Cup final against City. This season has not been an easy one for Spurs fans.
What followed the sacking of Mourinho was the usual linking of a host of managers and ex-players with the job. Even though it has been currently given to Ryan Mason, the ex-Spurs midfielder, his job is on an interim basis.
A name that was linked with the top job at Tottenham was current Ajax manager Erik Ten Hag. The manager who led a young and inexperienced Ajax side on their famous run to the semi-finals of the UCL in the 2018/19 season, defeating Real Madrid and Juventus on the way, and eventually losing to Tottenham in the semis.
However, the links died as quickly as they had risen with the Dutch manager signing a new contract with Ajax within a week of the rumours starting. As the links died down, a question that arose was, was he really in line for the job, or were these rumours just part of agent and media games to negotiate a new contract with Ajax?
According to Veronica Inside analysts René van der Gijp and Johan Derksen, it was nothing more than agents at play to increase the value of the manager. VoetbalZone reported van der Gijp as saying, “You can’t tell me that as a club, you have a few years with Mauricio Pochettino and then Jose Mourinho, and then you talk to Erik Ten Hag. Don’t you think, well, that is quite a difference. Don’t you think so, Wim?”
“Yes, of course, he has a bit against him, eh. In stature and whatever else,” added fellow panellist Wim Kieft, before Derksen suggested that it could be agents at play. That happens very often. Agents throw that into the media with friendly journalists, and then they hope that something “comes loose there.”
It is completely normal for agents to start rumours in the hope to increase the value of their clients and securing them bumper contracts at their current clubs. In most cases it works, as evidenced by Ten Hag’s contract at Ajax, sometimes it doesn’t.
The analysts at VeronicaInside likened the Ten Hag situation to that of former Netherlands national team coach Bert van Marwijk after the 2010 World Cup. The Dutch coach led his nation to the 2010 World Cup final where they lost to Spain. However, his performance led him to be linked with several top teams around Europe, including Liverpool. However, these links never materialised and he remained the national coach for 2 more years. These links were nothing more than agent rumours and was similar to the Ten Hag links to Tottenham.
Tottenham are still in the market for a new manager, having missed out on Hansi Flick who will coach the German National team and Julian Nagelsmann who will replace Flick at Bayern Munich next season. It remains to see who the club sign to lead them next season, with the possibility of Ryan Mason taking on the permanent job not ruled out.The post Erik Ten Hag to Tottenham – nothing more than agent games first appeared on Tottenham Insight.
