A round up of transfer stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.
A Hamburg based newspaper ran a report which suggested negotiations were under way over a return to the Bundesliga for the German midfielder.
There is no sign of a consistent return to the first team for him under the reign of Mauricio Pochettino.
Roberto Soldado has emerged as a potential candidate at AC Milan to replace Mario Balotelli.
Soldado could become Milan’s primary target after reports they are ready to turn their backs on a deal for Fernando Torres.
Soldado has looked revitalised due to the man management skills of Pochettino this summer.
Federico Fazio is expected to sign on the dotted line for the club in a deal worth around £8 million.
The experienced Sevilla defender will take the squad space freed up by the departure of Michael Dawson, who has joined Hull City.
Fazio has emerged as one of Mauricio Pochettino’s transfer priorities before the close of the transfer window.
