Belgium have been dealt a blow in defense ahead of their quarterfinal match with Wales as Jan Vertonghen has picked up an ankle injury in training and could miss up to eight weeks.

Thomas Vermaelen will miss out against Wales as well, as he serves a suspension, so the left half of the Belgian defensive line that had started the entire tournament to this point will be absent in the quarterfinal. This gives a boost to Wales attacking players like Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey in the fantasy game, as Jason Denayer looks to step in at center back to partner Toby Alderweireld and Romelu Lukaku's younger brother, Jordan, will line up at left back. Vertonghen is in danger of being ready for Tottenham's opener this coming season based on his current timetable.

Belgium didn't look great in the group stage but they exploded when it mattered in the knockout stages with a 4-0 win over Hungary today.

It was four goals from four players as Belgium went up early through Toby Alderweireld in the tenth minute. They didn't score again until late but then the floodgates opened with goals from Batshuayi, Hazard and Carrasco. On the easier side of the bracket, Belgium have to be the current favorites to at least reach the finals.

Harry Kane insists he feels "sharp" and "fresh" following criticism for his lacklustre performances at Euro 2016.

The Premier League hotshot is yet to score in the Championships and was way below par in the opener versus Russia, while manager Roy Hodgson only afforded Kane 45-minutes against Wales when he was hauled off at half-time. Kane was then rested for the draw with Slovakia but could return to the starting line-up on Monday when England face Iceland in the last-16: "I'm not tired, I'm 100 per cent fresh and I feel sharp, I feel ready," he said. "If called upon I'll be going out there and giving it 110 percent." Wayne Rooney and Adam Lallana will be checked ahead of the game after the pair picked up ankle injuries in training, although neither is believed to be serious. The Three Lions could face hosts France in the quarter-finals with a victory over the tournament outsiders.

After a couple of weeks of strong speculation, Victor Wanyama has officially departed from Southampton and joins Tottenham for a fee of about £11m.

Spurs get some early business done in the summer and get the man they have been pursuing since last offseason. Wanyama is a midfield enforcer, the type of player Mauricio Pochettino likes, so much so that it is the second time the manager has bought the Kenyan. Pochettino brought Wanyama to St. Mary's from Celtic back in 2013 in a season where the Saints achieved great success. Wanyama has little to offer in fantasy terms. Even in leagues that award for stats such as successful tackles, Wanyama has discipline issues and virtually no attacking threat. With a spot in Champions League, Pochettino now has flexibility with Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and Wanyama in defensive midfield, though, with Dembele spending the first several weeks of the season on suspension, Wanyama should be starting straight away alongside Dier.

Tottenham is set to hold more talks this week to finalize a summer transfer for Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The two sides are reportedly in negotiations over an £11 million move for the 24-year-old. Southampton reportedly want to recoup the £12.5 million they spent in 2013 to bring the Wanyama to the St Mary's from Celtic, but with only one year left on his current contract, the club won't want to risk losing him on a free transfer next summer after the Kenyan rejected the offer of a new contract. After losing Ronald Koeman to Everton, Southampton will be reluctant to finally lose Wanyama after flirting with a move to rejoin former manager Mauricio Pochettino over the past year.

Serie A side Fiorentina are prepared to let Croatian international midfielder Milan Badelj go to Tottenham, but want a figure of around £12m in return.

Badelj, who plays as a holding midfielder, is eager for the move as he is interested both a switch to the Premier League and an opportunity to participate in Champions League. The 27-year-old is in the prime of his career and can challenge to be a regular alongside Eric Dier in a central defensive midfield position. Is best attributes are his passing, tackling and interception skills, so he is not much of a fantasy prospect in standard leagues, but he will occasionally have a go at shooting from distance. The absence of Mousa Dembele through suspension at the beginning of the season could give Badelj an opportunity to start straight away should the Croatian make the move to North London.

With a 3-0 win over Bolivia, Argentina cruised to first place in Group D despite resting several starters.

Lionel Messi, Angel di Maria, Marcos Rojo, Javier Mascharano, and Javier Pastore all started the match on the bench and Argentina still cruised to an easy victory to finish atop Copa America Centenario Group D. All three goals came early with Lamela, Lavezzi, and Cuesta all scoring inside of 32 minutes. It could have been a lot more. Argentina will move on to face Group C runner-up Venezuela.

Former Manchester City manager and current Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini looks at Tottenham's Erik Lamela as his club's top signing target this summer.

Mancini is looking to improve on the attacking creativity of Internazionale, as the club looks to improve upon their fourth place finish in Serie A this past season after sinking to eighth in the table the season before that. Lamela showed tremendous growth with Mauricio Pochettino's side in his second season with Spurs after a forgettable inaugural campaign. Mancini is willing to fork over £20m plus a player or two to get the deal done and Tottenham are apparently interested enough to not shoot down the offer immediately. Whether Lamela wants to move from a Champions League side to a Europa League side is another story.

After failing to acquire him from Southampton last summer, Tottenham are once again in hot pursuit of midfielder Victor Wanyama.

Spurs were willing to swap a wide man for Wanyama last summer, dangling Andros Townsend and Erik Lamela as potential bait, but the Saints were perhaps holding a grudge after Tottenham swooped in and plucked Toby Alderweireld from their grasp after a contract snafu. With Mousa Dembele beginning the season on suspension and Champions League football in store, Spurs are looking to bolster their midfield options and Wanyama should get adequate playing time though Dembele and Eric Dier look poised to be the preferred duo in the middle. Wanyama is a card magnet so Mauricio Pochettino should be able to rotate him in and out while keeping everyone happy. With only 12 months left on his contract, the Saints may feel ready to do business with Spurs again and cash in on the Kenyan.

Tottenham are looking at a pair of young strikers to address their most important need this summer, a viable secondary option to Harry Kane.

The two strikers rumored right now are Antonio Sanabria, a 20-year-old Paraguayan who currently plays for AS Roma, and Vincent Janssen, a 21-year old Dutchman who is coming off a very fine season playing for AZ Alkmaar in the Eridivise. Arsenal attempted to snatch up Sanabria a couple of seasons ago but Roma beat them to the punch. He has spent the past season on loan with La Liga side Sporting Gijon, where he has had the opportunity to develop with regular playing time. Janssen seems more polished of the pair, and had a phenomenal scoring record this past season, netting 27 times in 34 games. Perhaps there is room for both at Tottenham, as they will surely want to have adequate depth ahead of a Champions League campaign.

Mousa Dembele is back in training for the Belgium national team ahead of Euro '16 after overcoming a calf strain.

Dembele was absent for Belgium in their final tune-up against Finland before this summer's tournament but reportedly returned to training the very next day. After an outstanding season for Tottenham, he has a good shot at starting for his country despite a talented player pool at his position. Of course, things did not end well for him after being charged with violent conduct and being slapped with a ban that will carry into next season. That will not prevent him from helping his nation though, as the Belgians open up their tournament a week from Monday against Italy.

Wanyama scored for Kenya in their friendly match against Tanzania.

Wanyama had a solid season for Southampton but he is not on penalty duty in the Premier League and his fantasy value remains extremely low. He is a better on-pitch performer than a fantasy contributor, and this doesn't seem likely to change going forward. Avoid him in standard leagues.

Crystal Palace has emerged as the favorite to land Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason in the summer transfer window.

Rumors have been swirling about the 24-year-old's future at the club despite signing a five-year contract last year. Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew is known to be keen on a move for the 24-year-old, with reports saying the Eagles are interested in making a £4million bid while Spurs value Mason at around £8million. With the emergence of Dele Alli, Moussa Dembele, and Eric Dier, Mason started only seven Premier League games this season, just two coming after the New Year. But it remains to be seen whether the English international wants to force a departure with Spurs in Champions League next season.

Spurs forward Heung-Min Son confirmed he has no interest in leaving the club despite rumors linking him with a summer exit.

Said the South Korean: "I haven't heard anything from the club regarding those transfer rumours. I'm sure my club will take care of this, and I think there is nothing special for me to be worried about. My first season in the Premier League didn't meet my expectations, but I had a good experience. For my first season, I played with the thought that I should learn many things here." Son joined Tottenham toward the end of the summer transfer window from Bayer Leverkusen, scoring four goals in 26 league appearances in his first Premier League season.

After falling down the ranks at White Hart Lane, Ryan Mason could be on his way to Bournemouth in search of a starting role.

It wasn't too long ago that Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb were the rising stars of the Spurs midfield. Injuries and the emergence of Dele Alli and Erik Dier along with Mousa Dembele's good health have seen Mason relegated to a reserve role. Bournemouth may come to the rescue and offer a starting role as they look to strengthen for their second season in the Premier League.
