TOTTENHAM BOUND...

Tottenham are in the running to sign Saido Berahino. The West Brom striker refused to celebrate any of his four FA Cup goals against Gateshead at the weekend, which according to The Independent's Sam Wallace was "an expression of the situation he finds himself". With the striker unsettled, a £20m bid could prise the 21-year-old away, although Spurs will face competition from Liverpool. More on that story here.

Tottenham look set to beat Arsenal to the signing of PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot - if PSG let him go. It's claimed that Arsenal were keen on the 19-year-old, however they were only interested in a permanent deal for the player. But with his club only wanting to let him out on loan for the rest of the season, Spurs are ready to provide a home on those terms. However, another report suggests any deal could be scuppered after Thiago Motta told PSG he wants to leave. The French club won't allow both to go.

Tottenham could also face competition from Liverpool for Fabian Delph. The Aston Villa midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and a cut-price offer of £3m is being lined up by Spurs as they aim to move ahead of interest from Anfield.

 

An £8m bid has been made for Fenerbache striker Emmanuel Emenike (pictured), although it was quickly turned down according to reports. Emenike joined the Turkish club from Spartak Moscow for €13m in the summer of 2013 and has scored 13 goals in 41 appearances. With Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado failing to fire this season, it's thought Mauricio Pochettino wants a new striker to share the load with Harry Kane.

HEADING OUT OF THE LANE...

Younes Kaboul could be set for a move to Besiktas. According to CNN Turk, the club are preparing to make a bid after identifying a defender as top priority during the January transfer window. Kaboul has fallen out of favour with Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino in recent weeks.
