Erik Lamela, looking to fend off a potential challenge to his spot in the line-up, scored Spurs' lone goal in their 2-1 loss to Juventus on Tuesday.

Spurs, traveling to Australia for their part in the International Champions Cup, lost their initial match to Italian Champions Juventus on Thursday. While they lost, their lone goal was promising with new arrival Victor Wanyama who won the ball as Juve attempted to clear their own end. He passed up to youngster Shayon Harrison who fed Lamela for a fine finish low to the far corner. A solid effort from a predominantly second team and youth squad for Spurs.

Speaking at a press conference in Australia ahead of Tottenham's preseason tour down under, Mauricio Pochettino let it be know that Nabil Bentaleb, among others, is not in the manager's plans for the upcoming season.

Pochettino also listed Alex Pritchard and Federico Fazio as players "on the outs". Pritchard never had a chance to make an impression, earning only one appearance during the Pochettino regime and Fazio had fallen out of favor and frozen out by the boss for quite some time. Bentaleb, on the other hand, once showed promise as a defensive midfielder but injury, the emergence of Eric Dier and the acquisition of Victor Wanyama has blocked the Algerian international's path. There was talk of sending Bentaleb out on loan but it sounds now that he is on the market. He is only 21-years-old and has the potential to be very helpful to another club this season.

Reports in England claim Tottenham winger has taken a medical for Marseille ahead of a summer move in the upcoming week.

The 22-year-old will join the Ligue 1 giants on a season-long loan that will reportedly turn into a £7 million permanent deal after meeting certain milestones in the upcoming season. N'Jie only joined Spurs one year ago in a £8 million move from Lyon on a five-year deal, but didn't score a goal in 14 appearances for the club last season. Now, the Frenchman is set to negotiate personal terms after passing his medical with both clubs having reached an agreement after Spurs reached an agreement to sign Marseille winger Georges-Kevin N'Koudou.

Swansea City have approached Tottenham in an attempt to sign Nacer Chadli, who looks to not be a part of his current club's future plans.

Chadli only made ten league starts last season, playing the role of substitute more often than not and, with Tottenham on the verge of signing wide man Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, the Belgian international's chances of more playing time with Spurs this season looks to be rather grim. Meanwhile, Swansea have been openly shopping for an option to play on the left wing and Chadli would likely find regular playing time there. The two sides need to reach a financial agreement at this time though, with Tottenham reportedly seeking £15m while the Swans currently are bidding around £10m.

Tottenham has refused to confirm but reports say the club have agreed to a transfer fee with Olympique Marseille for the purchase of winger Georges-Kevin N'Koudou.

After losing out to rivals Chelsea for the rights to Michy Batshuayi, Spurs are now looking at his former Ligue 1 teammate, the 21-year-old N'Koudou. N'Koudou is less polished of a player compared to Batshuayi but scouts for Tottenham apparently sent back positive remarks on the winger, who is comfortable on playing either side. Marseille look to be delaying the deal until they can find an adequate replacement first after already losing Batshuayi and it could be possible that Clinton N'Jie may be sent the other way on a loan deal. That may prove wise for Pochettino. With Vincent Janssen now the clear backup to Harry Kane, a loan move for N'Jie could help further his development rather than rarely seeing competitive action.

Tottenham have finally struck a confirmed deal with AZ Alkmaar that will send striker Vincent Janssen to Spurs for a fee of £18.6m.

Tottenham's need for a striker has been in existence since last summer and, after several failed attempts to land one, they now have there man. The 22-year-old was red hot last season in the Eridivise, leading the league in goals with 27, twenty of which came in the second half of the campaign. He also made his Dutch debut this past year, scoring three times in five caps. It looks a great situation on paper. Janssen made it public that he wanted to play for Spurs and he's surely aware of Harry Kane's presence, meaning he's complacent with the idea of being second choice. That said, Mauricio Pochettino will look to utilize Janssen as much as possible and grant Kane the occasional rest, a luxury the Englishman was not afforded last season. Janssen would seem to have limited appeal in fantasy draft leagues, but Kane owners may want to handcuff their star. He's certainly worth a late round add if room on your roster permits, though we have yet to see how he will adapt to the PL.

Tottenham and Liverpool are both in pursuit of Bayern Munich's playmaking maestro Mario Gotze, with Spurs apparently in the pole position.

It would seem a Gotze reunion with Jurgen Klopp at Anfield is a bit of a stretch, with players like Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino already in the fold and the club has just spent big money on acquiring Sadio Mane, but Tottenham have reportedly held talks on two occasions with Bayern, where Gotze has let it be known he is keen on a move. Borussia Dortmund is also in the mix. Should Gotze end up at White Hart Lane, it would be a landmark purchase by Daniel Levy. Spurs are not the type of club to take on a player with wages Gotze commands, but with Champions League status, added revenue from a TV contract and a mission to stay title contenders, the German international has a chance to be a marquee signing. It would beg the question as to how Gotze would affect the club's chemistry, but fans would likely be happy to take the risk to land a player of his stature.

France will play Portugal in the Euro 2016 final after defeating Germany this evening, 0-2.

The host country were outplayed clearly in the first half, with the Germans dominating possession and putting France into a desperate position of defending. It was the play of each side's goalkeepers that kept the match goalless into the 45th minute with Hugo Lloris making a superb stop of an Emre Can shot. Then, just seconds before halftime, a handball by Germany awarded France a penalty kick and Griezmann struck with confidence and authority. Griezmann gave France the cushion it needed with another goal in the 72nd minute, cleaning up from a loose ball that was initially saved by the keeper. Lloris made another top drawer save in added time to preserve a clean sheet.

Hull City are reportedly interested in Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason and the newly-promoted club could spend upwards of £10m to get a deal done.

The Tigers apparently like shopping at White Hart Lane when in need of midfield help. In their last top flight season, they acquired both Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone from Spurs, and now they are targeting Mason. It appears Mason is best served moving to a new club as Mauricio Pochettino has a pretty settled cast of regulars and at 25 years of age, Mason needs the opportunity to get regular pitch time, which should be possible under Steve Bruce. It would also serve Tottenham well because Mason's value is probably not going to get any higher than he is now should he remain with the club. According to reports, Borussia Dortmund may be interested in him as well.

Tottenham are still targeting Vincent Janssen even though their initial bid for the striker was turned down by AZ Alkmaar.

After Spurs entered what they thought was a healthy bid for the 21-year-old, they were summarily rejected by AZ Alkmaar, much to Janssen's chagrin. Janssen stated publicly that a deal could not be reached and that he was ready to take the next step in his career and move on from his current club. He also is reported to favor a move to Tottenham over PSG, who are also interested in him. Spurs had also dangled an offer to Inter for Mauro Icardi, but that deal was squashed and the rumors have died down, so it is looking like Janssen is the most likely to fill an important void on Tottenham's roster at this point in time.

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.
