Tottenham consider late bid for £31million-rated Celta Vigo midfielder Stanislav Lobotka

Mauricio Pochettino is keen on Celta Viga midfielder Stanislav Lobotka.

The Tottenham boss, yet to make a signing with just four days of the transfer window remaining, has been assessing his options with Mousa Dembele keen to leave before Thursday’s deadline.

Lobotka, 23, is a Slovakia international who only signed a new deal in February which runs until June 2023.

However, he has a £31m release clause in his contract, however, and his club revealed last month that he wants to move on.

Napoli are also interested in his services.

Tottenham remain keen on Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish but the north London club have been warned they will not get him on the cheap.

Villa boss Steve Bruce said: “I don’t want to lose Jack and neither do the owners. We don’t want to lose our best players but it’s football and it might happen.

“The one thing we’re able to do is be in a much better bargaining position because now, if Spurs want to buy him, they will have to buy him at a premium that in the last few weeks they haven’t been able to get to.

“Take money out of it, we’re in the Championship and Tottenham are in the Champions League so I’m aware that there is a human involved and a football player.

“A football player always wants to play at the top. He’s a local lad who has done great.

“Ever since I walked through the door it’s always been about Grealish one way or another and continues to be here.

“He’s our best player by a distance and a very good player.”
