Tottenham are working towards adding further new signings to the squad ahead of the start of pre-season.

Antonio Conte already has three new faces through the door in Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster and Yves Bissouma, but the manager wants at least six.

A centre-back, right wing-back and wide forward are the targets, though first-choice target Alessandro Bastoni is expected to stay at Inter.

Here is your latest update on Tottenham transfer news and rumours...

Raphinha

Tottenham and Arsenal are again battling over the same target after the Gabriel Jesus tug of war, with Tottenham are ready to better Arsenal’s bid for Raphinha, according to Sportitalia journalist Gianluigi Longari.

The Gunners have seen an opening offer rejected by Leeds, who are holding out for around £60million.

Longari claims Spurs are ready to meet Leeds’ valuation with a bid of £50m plus a further £10m in add-ons.

Joao Felix

Talking of talented forwards, Tottenham have been alerted to the availability of Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix.

Diego Simeone is, according to Barca Times, ready to sell the youngster and interest in Giovani Lo Celso could see Spurs get involved in the mix.

Felix, who cost Atleti around £100m three seasons ago and Simone is ready to cash in after his best season to date, as he remains unconvinced.

Djed Spence

Tottenham are planning further talks over a move for Djed Spence as they plot the next signing in their summer recruitment drive, writes Standard Sport’s Giuseppe Muro.

The England Under-21 international is one of the most promising homegrown talents on the market and is valued at around £15million.

Tottenham held initial talks with Middlesbrough earlier in the summer and hope to negotiate a price for Spence to make the 21-year-old their fourth summer signing.
