    The most likely

    Top of the shopping list is Ajax centre-half Davidson Silva.

    The Colombian made a name for himself in the Europa League final, where he was undoubtedly the star player for the Dutch side.

    21-year-old Silva missed Ajax’s match on Saturday in Holland amid claims he’s about to sign for Spurs. The tabloid report:

    Dutch sources have told the Daily Star Sunday that Holland’s top club were prepared to sell him for £22.6m. 

    But with transfer fees escalating, Ajax could now demand £35m.

    Two other targets

    Aside from Silva, Spurs are again linked to Everton’s Ross Barkley and Valencia’s Joao Cancelo.

    Barkley has been a long term target for Tottenham, although Spurs have yet to lodge a bid.

    Chelsea have also been tipped to hijack the deal with Everton.

    The main update in the Star is the claim “Barkley, 23, remains the top target for Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino and he still hopes that a £30m deal can be agreed before the transfer window closes.”

    As for Cancelo, the 23-year-old defender is listed as having a £20m price tag.
