Dybala is probably Poch's number one target out of the lot. If Levy delivers him on top of Ndombele then he will have to be impressed. That's without taking into account others!
Think GLC was always the top target after Ndombele. Betis probably screwed this one up.
Dybala is an opportunistic buy and probably most difficult to complete.
Fernandes has come about cos of CE pissing around.
Coutinho is more opportunistic, but has been in shop window whole time.

Who we end up with lord knows but its obviously why we have not pursued plan Bs as some have suggested as there were always good options.

Here's hoping we end up with 2 minimum - BF probably the easiest but the one with least appeal.

Its good being a Spurs fan, life is anything but boring.

Heres to the next 41.5 hours. Good luck to Daniel and his team getting what we need over the line.

And good luck to Hercs, Trix, Val and Dov keeping us up with all that's going on.

To be fair if Juve want him out and he wants to come it must also be in the interest of a company owning his image rights to help facilitate this. His image won’t get boosted by him sitting on Juves bench. Unless we are trying to buy his rights out 100%
Image rights are covered by Clause 4 of the standard Premier League contract. Basically this clause requires only that the player gives the club the right to use his image to promote the club and club branded merchandise. Any player including Dybala can reserve the rights to exploit his image for other purposes. The club doesn’t need to buy out these wider image rights.

my Wi-Fi has been down all day can someone round up the news from today so I'm not scrolling for hours.
Pretty much nothing. Hoping for something to maybe happen tomorrow. Looking pretty bleak at the minute tho. Probably best to just get some kip.

That’s awesome and answered the question before I asked it - I assume we can just leave the status quo and maybe deal with it after if it’s an issue?

Just caught up with 20 pages of this thread, it’s taken me over an hour.

At this point I think we’re one ITK about Bale away from shouting “BINGO!!”

I need sleep.

Fee agreed with juve for Dybala, but no agreement with the player yet. Some hurdles to overcome there.

Reports that we're talking to Barca about taking Coutinho on loan. Nothing on Bruno Fernandes or Lo Celso. Nothing new on Sessegnon either.

Aurier might go to psg and Eriksen looks too be off to United.

Not much. In no particular order:

Sessegnon may have had his medical today, or it may be off completely

Bruno Fernandes is reportedly booked in for a medical tomorrow, but it may all be a smokescreen for other deals, such as...

...Betis are still interested in selling us Lo Celso, at the right price...

...while Coutinho is being touted to us for a loan, while we remain non-commital - but both Levy and key Barca suits are in Miami, which may be a complete coincidence but everyone seemed to be running with it until...

...the world and his mother began reporting we've agreed a fee with Juventus for Paulo Dybala, having failed to agree a fee for anyone else in the last four weeks, which is possibly the most unbelievable element of the whole thing.

Oh, and we're also tracking a right back in case Aurier returns to PSG/France

I think that's everything. I lost track of Sessegnon amidst all the Iberians/South Americans, so there may be more (or less) going on there than I realised.

EDIT: And as nikojev says, Eriksen may be going to United as he appears to have burned his bridges here.

I keep going back and forth between optimistic and realistic. Optimistically, the names linked going into the last three days are probably the highest-level names we have had ever, particularly Coutinho and Dybala today. Would certainly be a statement across not just England but Europe if those two were brought in. Certainly Poch would be happy as well.

Realistically, we normally do get a lot of ITK potential dealings and names and at least recently, nothing has obviously happened. Over the past few windows, there have always seemed to be something that would end up preventing the conclusion of the deals and people would get upset.

Are things really going to change? I hope so but I am trying to temper my expectations (fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me sort of thing). It is certainly possible that PD and PC are getting out today to raise interest and for Spurs to say "we tried hard to get top names, but it was too difficult". We've heard that before. The image rights thing with Dybala is a perfect "excuse" for not completing the deal. Levy is playing a dangerous game in terms of fans however if these deals are not completed IMO. People are rightly excited and for nothing to get done would be more than just another letdown. This info today has almost backed him into a corner even more now that something has to get done. I'd imagine Poch is just as excited with the chance of getting PD and PC.

If Thursday comes and we've sold CE and signed Sess while missing out on all these names, I think the reaction would be even worse than last year's window of nothing. Hopefully things are really about to change. Should be an interesting two days.

Been out all evening since everything went mental.

Can anyone tell me if there’s been any actual ITK over the latter end of this evening?
