Tottenham Hotspur have beaten Barcelona to the signing of Lucas Bergvall with the Premier League-bound Swedish wonderkid likened to both Frenkie de Jong and Pedri.  Before sealing his £8.5 million move to North London at the start of February – Lucas Bergvall will arrive in the summer when the current Allsvenskan campaign comes to an end – Barcelona president Joan Laporta made no attempt to hide the fact that the teenager also had admirers at the Camp Nou.  You can usually tell a lot about a player’s potential by the nature of the club’s interested in him. And, in the space of just a ..read more

Former Newcastle United midfielder Mikel Merino is plying his trade in the Champions League knockout-stages these days with one Real Sociedad team-mate labelling the Spain international a ‘world-class’ player.  Wednesday’s last-16 clash at the Parc des Princes did a pretty good job of highlighting both the good and the bad of Imanol Alguacil’s side. La Real carved open the PSG backline on a number of occasions. But, when it came to sticking the ball in the back of the net, the visitors proved themselves to be about as blunt as a butter knife going up against the razor-sharp katana that is ..read more

Gio Reyna may have made a mistake joining Premier League strugglers Nottingham Forest with La Liga a better fit for the Borussia Dortmund loanee.  That is according to Taylor Twellman, the former USA international ‘concerned’ about a move he feels will do little to put Giovanni Reyna’s career back on the right track again.  The £13 million-rated Reyna arrived at Nottingham Forest on loan in January, moving to the City Ground after tumbling down the pecking order at Dortmund following a seemingly never-ending spate of injury issues.  And Twellman has a nagging feeling that decisi ..read more

It is no coincidence that, only a few hours after performing a more-than passable Thibaut Courtois impression on the biggest stage of all, reports emerged suggesting that Andriy Lunin could be in line for a new contract at Real Madrid.  Few would argue he doesn’t deserve it. Not after the performance he put in during Tuesday’s nervy 1-0 Champions League knockout stage win away from home at RB Leipzig. “(Andriy Lunin) was our hero tonight,” Madrid midfielder Fede Valverde says without too much exaggeration. “We are lucky to have such a talented goalkeeper.”  In a squad chock-full ..read more

The ‘spectacular’ Sokratis Papastathopoulos is still shining at the highest level aged 35 with the former Arsenal and Premier League defender making a big impact at Real Betis.  Manuel Pellegrini’s side have certainly made quite a name for themselves as a club where big-name players who have fallen on hard times can get their careers up and running again. No wonder Pablo Fornals, out of favour at West Ham United, jumped at the chance to join in January, following in the footsteps of Nabil Fekir, Ayoze Perez and the masterful Isco.  Sokratis still making his mark two years after Arsen ..read more

£7m man sold by West Ham enjoys 'excellent start' at new club, goal on full debut

Pablo Fornals has been tipped to make a positive impact at Real Betis after enjoying an ‘excellent’ start to life back in Spain following his deadline day departure from Premier League outfit West Ham United.  Only two weeks after the window closed, the logic of West Ham’s deadline day business is already coming into question. OK, Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma – the duo sealing moves to Real Betis and Lyon despite a late hitch – appeared to make sense from one perspective, given that neither player was a regular starter under David Moyes any longer.  But with Lucas Paqueta picking ..read more

Dane Scarlett struggled for goals on loan at Portsmouth but his former Pompey coach is backing the Tottenham Hotspur target to fulfil his potential as he fights for his chance at the Premier League giants.  On the final day of the January transfer window, Spurs farmed Alejo Veliz out on loan to Sevilla. If the £13 million wonderkid they signed last summer could not force his way into Ange Postecoglou’s first-team plans, then what chance does a 19-year-old returning to North London after a pair of underwhelming loan spells in the EFL.  In a combined 46 league games at Ipswich Town and ..read more
