Good morning, Tottenham fans. Here are your morning headlines for Sunday, October 11.
Bale may hold key to Roden deal
The 22-year-old centre-back’s commanding displays in the Championship have attracted attention from Spurs and a number of other Premier League sides.
However, Tottenham are favourites to sign Roden for around £18 million thanks, in part, to the influence of Welsh international teammates Bale and Ben Davies, with the 22-year-old defender believed to be keen to link up with his fellow countrymen.
Spurs may return for Milik in January
Tottenham could make another move for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik in January.
Italian outlet Tutto Mercato claims Spurs are readying a bid for the Polish international, who was linked with a switch to north London in the summer.
The 26-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and, with talks over a new deal at an impasse, the Italians were hoping to cash in for £23 million.
That did not happen and Milik has been pushed to the sidelines by manager Gennaro Gattuso, which could affect his international chances, with Euro 2020 to take place next summer.
And Spurs – along with Everton – are ready to offer him a lifeline in three months’ time.
Rose and Alli could still leave Tottenham
Tottenham impressed in this summer’s transfer window, bringing in Bale, Sergio Reguilon, Carlos Vinicius, Matt Doherty, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
As a result, though, Spurs’ first-team squad is rather bloated. There are currently 29 senior players in Jose Mourinho’s squad – four more than the permitted 25-man Premier League list allows.

football.london has looked at the four Spurs players who could be on the move throughout October, with out-of-favour left-back Danny Rose at the top of the list.
Next is Jack Clarke, who has struggled to make an impact since joining for £9 million from Leeds United, followed by Dele Alli, a Spurs favourite who was cut from the club’s opening match-day squads this season amid murmurs that Mourinho was keen to sell.
The report also states Cameron Carter-Vickers could yet find a new club before Friday’s domestic deadline, with Bournemouth and Swansea City linked to the American international centre-back.
