TOTTENHAM target Paco Alcacer could be set to return to La Liga.
Spurs are looking for a backup striker to Harry Kane and the arrival of Erling Haaland to Dortmund has thrown the Spaniard's future up in the air.
But according to build, Sevilla have now entered the race for Alcacer's signature.
SPURS and Arsenal target Isaac Lihadji has come under fire from former French international Jerome Rothen for refusing to sign a contract extension at Marseille.
It has been claimed that the 17-year-old forward has rejected a £7,500-a-week deal with the Ligue 1 side.
Rothen said: “It is unacceptable that he refuses this contract.
“The goal when you are trained at a club, is to grow in the club, even more so when you are at a club like Marseille where he had a real chance of being in one of the three biggest clubs of France.
“What shocks me is the player. What does he want to do? Already his mentality isn't good.
“Marseille, it must make you dream.”
CHELSEA, Man Utd and Spurs have been dealt a blow with Neil Lennon stating Odsonne Edouard will not be leaving Celtic this month.
Speaking to Sky Sports on whether his departure is inevitable, Lennon said: “It might be inevitably, but certainly not in the short term.
“We want Odsonne here.
“We have a huge second half of the season and he has made a huge contribution with his play, his goals, his influence on the team and we are certainly not in a position to want to lose that right now.”
TOTTENHAM have been backed to turn Giovani Lo Celso's loan spell from Real Betis into a permanent move this month.
The 23-year-old has struggled for regular game this season – starting just twice in the Premier League.
Football.London journalist Alasdair Gold said: “I’d be shocked if Spurs don’t make his deal permanent this month.
“If they don’t and then finish in the top four then Lo Celso becomes a permanent Spurs player anyway, and for £34 million rather than the £27.2million it would cost this month.”
