Kyle Walker’s proposed move to Manchester City could drag on into next week as Tottenham stand firm on their £50 million valuation.

News broke in May that the England international wanted to leave Spurs following a falling out with manager Mauricio Pochettino. The pair clashed when Walker was left on the bench for the north London derby [April] while he was regularly rotated with Kieran Trippier during the latter part of the season. Pochettino is said to have concerns over the full-backs fitness and feels he is unable to play in two high profile games in a week. However, Tottenham have no need to sell, and chairman Daniel Levy is not prepared to agree a cut-price deal with Walker tied to the club until 2021. The news comes on the back of reports that Dani Alves has agreed a two-year deal at the Etihad, but his arrival will not be a simple case of one or the other, with Pep Guardiola still very keen to land his prime target.

Reports suggest that Erik Lamela may not be ready for a return to competitive action until October, but there was better news regarding his Tottenham teammate.

The Argentine endured an injury plagued 2016/17 which restricted him to just six Premier League starts. Lamela was battling an ongoing and persistent hip injury which ultimately ended his season after going under the knife. The initial procedure in early April focussed on a problem on his left hip and that was followed up by surgery on the opposite side 6 weeks later. Although there has been no definitive timeline outlined by the club, the Mirror say that Lamela is still around 4 months away from playing again. However, there was better regarding Danny Rose who is recovering from a knee operation. The England international was back with the first team in April having been sidelined since January, but a decision was taken to undergo "exploratory surgery" as the problem had not been fully resolved. While Rose is expected to miss the opening weekend, he should be available by mid-August.

Manchester United will have to fork out £50 million to sign Spurs' Eric Dier.

The Telegraph are reporting that Dier is one of names on the list of transfer targets which José Mourinho delivered to Ed Woodward for the current transfer window. United crossed Victor Lindelof's name off earlier this week, and Mourinho is keen for United's dealings to be complete in time for the new season. Mourinho views Dier, 23, as a viable replacement for Michael Carrick, who United signed from Spurs back in 2006. The veteran midfielder is expected to retire at the end of next season, having been handed a one year extension to his current contract recently. Spurs' valuation of Dier is north of what the Red Devils expected to pay for the midfielder who can also play as a defender. A move to United should see Dier more than double his current salary.

Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son faces further tests after suffering a suspected broken arm.

The 24-year-old, who has just enjoyed a hugely successful Premier League campaign, was injured playing for South Korea in a World Cup qualifier in Doha. Son landed awkwardly following an aerial challenge, and was led down the tunnel holding his arm in an ice-pack on the half hour mark. The Korean Football Association released a statement soon after the 3-2 loss to Qatar confirming he would undergo further tests: "Son is suspected of having his arm broken. Our team doctor had the arm braced before being scanned when the team arrives back here this afternoon." Coach Uli Stielike also revealed the injury is "not good" and that the right forearm could be fractured: "We have to have a scan, it may be broken." The setback is likely to keep Son out of full contact training when Tottenham reconvene for pre-season at the beginning of July but he should be OK to resume light activities depending on the severity of the break.

Manchester City is expected to open talks for Tottenham defender Kyle Walker this week.

Reports suggest that Spurs are looking for close to £50 million for the right back, but Manchester City is hoping to broker a move closer to £40 million. The club has a desperate need for a right-back with Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta both leaving on free transfers, and Walker is one of their top choice to fill the position. The 27-year-old is said to be bemused by his current platoon situation with Kieran Trippier, which included being left out of the North London derby.

Moussa Sissoko had a forgettable first season with Tottenham and is now drawing interest this summer from Ligue 1 side Marseille.

This will wind up as a net loss for Tottenham at some point, as Spurs somewhat surprisingly splashed big cash on the French international at the end of last summer's transfer window to the tune of £30million, a figure no doubt inflated by Sissoko's impressive performance in last summer's Euros. With Spurs though, he never made much of an impression. A chance to grab a role in the attacking midfield was blocked by a breakout season for Heung-min Son, who cemented his spot following the long-term injury to Erik Lamela. Central midfield was even tougher to crack, as three very solid option - Victor Wanyama, Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier, were already fighting for two spots. Sissoko's stock may be down, but he could be a nice buy-low impact player for another club this summer.

In a goalless affair entering its 70th minute, the England v Scotland match on Saturday evening saw two lead changes and a late equalizer as the two sides played to a 2-2 draw.

Kane was awarded the armband for the first time as a member of the Three Lions and he paid off the honor by scoring three minute into second half stoppage time to rescue a point and stay top of their World Cup qualifier group. Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain came on as a substitute in the second half and immediately opened the scoring on seventy minutes. Scotland had an ace up their sleeve in Leigh Griffiths though, who left England stunned when he converted two free kicks for goals, in the 87th and 90th minute respectively, putting Scotland in position to grab three points. Kane would score on a volley after being picked out by Raheem Sterling cross though to end the match on level terms. Given his form, consistency, the club he plays for, and a firm grip on his role, Kane looks poised to be the top pick in most fantasy draft leagues in the new season and will be difficult for any manager to be without at the start of the FPL game.

Mousa Dembele will miss Tottenham’s end of season trip to Hong Kong as he is scheduled to undergo foot surgery this week.

The 29-year-old has struggled during the latter part of the season due to a persistent foot problem and the club have taken the decision for the midfielder to go under the knife in an attempt to cure the long-standing injury. It’s hoped that Dembele will be ready to return for the start of pre-season at the beginning of July. Kyle Walker will be included in the squad, even though he is being heavily linked with a summer move away, and in spite of missing the 7-1 win at Hull because of an ankle issue. However, Danny Rose [knee] and Erik Lamela [hip] will not be a part of the travelling group after the pair had more surgery earlier this month. In addition, Harry Winks [ankle] remains on the sidelines.

Tottenham finished the season on a very positive note as Harry Kane scored a hat trick for the second time in three days and Spurs got goal-happy, ripping apart Hull City 1-7.

Kane scored seven goals in less than 72 hours. Incredible. He finishes the season with 29 goals in league play alone and grabs his second straight Golden Boot. It looks pretty safe to say, this is no one-season wonder, as the away supporters chanted during the dazzling display. Too many goals to provide detail, but Dele Alli, Victor Wanyama, Ben Davies and Toby Alderweireld also got on the score sheet. Christian Eriksen provided a pair of assists as well as Kieran Trippier, who looks poised to try and claim the right back role next season with Kyle Walker heavily linked to an exit from the club in the summer. According to Opta, Spurs +60 goal difference is the highest in league history for a non title-winning side. The future certainly looks bright enough though.

Hugo Lloris is a doubt for Tottenham's trip to Hull City on Sunday, as the French international keeper is coping with a knee injury.

It is unclear whether something happened to Lloris' knee during Tottenham's win over Leicester on Thursday night or if something happened in training on Friday, but either way, with the club's fate sealed, one wonders if any chances will be taken with the club captain. Michel Vorm looks to step in if need be. He filled in for Lloris when the Frenchman injured himself on opening day and has four league starts, keeping two clean sheets on the season, so he is a very capable replacement and a potential fantasy play in the final weekend of the season.

Kieran Trippier has returned to training ahead of Tottenham's season finale against Hull City, with the full-back recovered from a concussion.

Spurs were without both of their normal right-back options against Leicester in midweek, but the loss was hardly felt as they scored six goals to clobber the Foxes. A short turnaround before facing the Tigers, there was worry neither Trippier nor Kyle Walker would come into contention but Trippier is back in the fold, while Walker will be assessed a final time on Saturday. With very strong rumors of Walker departing the club this summer and Tottenham's position in the table locked, odds are Trippier will get the nod in Mauricio Pochettino's XI, even if Walker shows improvement in his final assessment. Trippier, then, makes an excellent defender option in DFS leagues or H2H leagues where he may be floating out there on the waiver wire.

Tottenham Hotspur dispelled any fears that they would stop performing once the title was lost by routing Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

The game played on an equal footing in the early stages, until Spurs broke the deadlock through Harry Kane from close range. The provider of that goal Son netted soon after as Spurs relentlessly pressed the hosts. Ben Chilwell brought Leicester back within one of Spurs, but that was as close as they got. Kane grabbed his second of the night before he provided the ball for Son to complete his brace. Kane completed his hat-trick just before the end of normal time, before adding a fourth in injury time to sign off a massive statement from Spurs for next season. That's 26 goals for Harry Kane this season. He is now on 26 goals, two ahead of Romelu Lukaku going into the final gameweek.

Tottenham face a crisis at right back for their match with Leicester Thursday night, as both Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier have been ruled out.

While the finale at White Hart Lane ended with their fourteenth straight home win, it came at a price as Walker has picked up an ankle injury while Kieran Trippier is recovering from a concussion he sustained in the win over Manchester United. Tottenham's final match of the season comes just three days later, so the status of both players will be in doubt until we hear an update from Mauricio Pochettino before the Hull match. Against the Foxes, it may be Eric Dier deputizing, who has played the position a handful of times before. That would afford a chance to field Dier, Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele, when usually one of the trio is the odd man out of Pochettino's XI.

Danny Rose underwent exploratory surgery on the knee that has kept him sidelined since January today, and will spend the summer in recovery.

After previous recovery attempts without surgery failed to work, Rose hopefully will be sorted when he rehabilitates over the summer, but he will likely not be ready at the start of next season in even a best-case scenario. It is tough news for Spurs as well as the England national team, as the 26-year old had a grip on the left role for the Three Lions. It is also concerning that his knee showed signs of improvement a week to ten days after the injury, with a specialist initially indicating that a scan revealed the damage was not too significant. Clearly, that wasn't the case and it has cost the full back a couple of months before the club decided to go forth with today's surgery. The hope is that he can return to the level he had been playing at, but it looks like Ben Davies will be the main option on the left starting next season.

Tottenham's final match at White Hart Lane ended in a 2-1 win over Manchester United, as they close out the season winning 14 straight at home, matching their all-time record.

It was an electric atmosphere in North London, despite dreary weather conditions, and the proceedings got off to a perfect start, with Spurs taking the lead inside of six minutes. A corner was played short to Ben Davies, who sent a pinpoint cross to Victor Wanyama and Wanyama headed home. They would then go two goals to the good shortly after the second half began, when Christian Eriksen sent in a free kick that Harry Kane met with a side-footed finish. Things got a bit testy when Manchester United pulled one back, but Spurs were able to hold tight and secure a second place finish in the league and it was only apropos that Kane would score what turned out to be the match winner.
