Atsu, Parker, Huddlestone, Livermore, Carroll, Townsend, Damiao, Rami, Defoe, Sigurdsson

Christian Atsu the Porto winger who played under Andre Villas-Boas is once again being mentioned as a target. That lovely journalistic phrase that has no source and with information the journalist wouldn't know anyway is used, "Spurs are weighing up a move." So some journalist knows what is being discussed behind closed doors at White Hart Lane does he? Sounds like pure guesswork, make enough guesses and some must be right.

Hull City are in advanced talks with Tom Huddlestone over a £5 million move. Don't get your hopes up folks, Huddlestone has had advanced talks for over a year with half a dozen clubs and never puts pen to paper. He is not on big wages but lacks any ambition. He is the anonymous employee who never misses a day, does a dead end job and never complains, he just does it and thinks the company thinks the world of him for doing it. Hull are trying to tempt him though by taking Jake Livermore on loan so he'll have a buddy alongside him!

Championship side Watford who narrowly missed promotion last year and have started well this year, want highly-rated midfielder Tom Carroll on loan. I would have thought a Premier League loan would get him the game time he needs to develop.

Once again QPR want Scott Parker but wages remain the issue. Parker doesn't really want to leave but he would be so far down the pecking order he'd never play in a World Cup year. Their have been reports that he would be speaking with Roy Hodgson to see if playing in the Championship would damage his chances of going to the World Cup so only if he gets the right answers would he go. If negotiations are heavily underway perhaps he has received those assurances. However there are reports that Fulham have now entered the fray which would be a more sensible move for him.

QPR also want Andros Townsend back but surely he also would want to play in the Premier League. He is unlikely to get much game time at Tottenham being behind Bale, Lennon, Chadli and Sigurdsson, with possibly another to come. His future at Spurs depends upon the system AVB wants to play when Sandro is fit or Capoue is confirmed, will it still be 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3? If it's the later we are likely to sign another striker and his days are numbered. Clearly the spell at QPR last season brought him along and he would surely do a job for a Premier League team, having shown up well in pre-season cameos.

According to French sports daily L'Equipe, Zenit St. Petersburg have offered Internacional £21.47 million (€25m) for Leandro Damiao which meets club president Giovanni Luigi's inflated valuation.

Andre Villas Boas has declared that Jermain Defoe and Gylfi Sigurdsson will not be sold this summer, according to SkySports. Adebayor is the striker the club are desperate to shift, universally disliked it seems the club want shot of him.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly turned to Valencia's £9.5 million (€11.06m) rated defender Adil Rami in our search for a new centre-half. Toby Alderweireld is also continually talked about but ITK suggests we rejected him early in the window as having a major weakness in his game.
