Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Tottenham are linked with Adrien Silva…

Tottenham are due to meet with Sporting Lisbon directors as they look to try and thrash out a deal to sign £26m-rated midfielder Adrien Silva this summer, according to The Sun.

Mauricio Pochettino needs to strengthen his squad ahead of Tottenham’s return to the Champions League but he’s been extremely quiet in the market so far having failed to make a single major signing.

However, it looks as though Spurs could be closing in on their first addition of the summer as The Sun claim they are scheduled to meet with Sporting Lisbon chiefs over a deal to sign Silva.

The newspaper says the midfielder’s agent will also be present at the meeting as the north Londoners look to beat the likes of Everton to the Portuguese international’s signature.

Silva still has three years left on his contract so Sporting are under no pressure to sell to Tottenham and The Sun claim they are demanding £26.5m for their skipper this summer.

It remains to be seen whether Spurs will be prepared to meet that valuation but the 28-year-old would be a solid signing if the north Londoners could get a deal agreed.

Silva has been with Sporting his entire career having progressed through their youth ranks and he’s gone on to take the captains armband after making his debut aged just 18-years-old.

The 20-cap Portuguese international would provide competition for Victor Wanyama in the middle of the park and he’d bring plenty of Champions League experience with him if he does eventually move to White Hart Lane.

However, Silva’s arrival could cast further doubt over the future of Eric Dier with the versatile England midfielder being strongly linked with a move to Man Utd this summer.
