Tottenham unraveling as rumors swirl on exits for Pochettino and Kane (The London Economic)
If I could have bet on chaos hitting Tottenham Hotspur after Tuesday’s result, I’d be very rich. In aggregated news from The London Economic, the outlet compiled reports from the Daily Mail and The Mirror which say that both Mauricio Pochettino and Harry Kane could be looking for an exit:
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is looking to leave the club, but Spurs will not sack him because they would have to pay him £32million, according to the Daily Mail. The paper says that Tottenham players have seen the Argentinian become “noticeably distant” at the club’s training facilities. The report follows Spurs’ 7-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Probably even more worrying news for Spurs, The Mirror say the North London club are worried Harry Kane might leave.

Interviewed by Voetbal International, Ajax and Dutch NT star attacking midfielder Donny Van De Beek (22), tracked hard by Real Madrid, stated: “I don’t want to leave during winter window, I’m staying put until season’s over, at the very least. I want to be fine and easy along the season, then we’ll see. Real know it as well, everyone knows about it. Everyone loves me here, and I’m doing all I can to pay that kind of acknowledgement back.”

Arsenal might be getting serious about RB Salzburg’s Dominik Szoboszlai, but could face competition from Juventus and Lazio:
