Monday's Tottenham Hotspur transfer talk news roundup: Wout Weghorst, Gareth Bale, Jesse Lingard

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Tottenham on Monday, September 21.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Tottenham Hotspur eye possible reinforcements.

Spurs were among the biggest spenders during the January transfer window but are expected to be active again in the summer as Jose Mourinho continues to mould his squad.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Monday morning's Tottenham Hotspur transfer talk news roundup:

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen to sign Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst before the end of this summer's transfer window.

Spurs put five goals past Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon and have boosted their attacking options this summer with the signing of Gareth Bale.

However, head coach Jose Mourinho said after Sunday's 5-2 victory at St Mary's that he is still keen to bring a new centre-forward to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before the October deadline.

According to Tabantia, Spurs are 'serious' about signing Weghorst, who was believed to be a target for Arsenal in the early stages of this summer's transfer window.

The 28-year-old enjoyed an excellent 2019-20 campaign for his German club, scoring 20 times and providing five assists in 42 appearances in all competitions.

Weghorst recently admitted that he could be on the move this summer, but the Netherlands international still has three years left to run on his current deal.

Tottenham Hotspur willing to pay £30m for Jesse Lingard?

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly contemplating a big-money bid to sign Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard.

With Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale having joined from Real Madrid on Saturday, it was believed that Spurs may not make any further additions before the end of the summer transfer window.

However, according to the Daily Star, manager Jose Mourinho is open to a reunion with Lingard, whom he worked with during his time at Old Trafford.

As a result of the England international falling down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United have no intention of extending the 27-year-old's contract past 2021.

Despite being able to sign Lingard on a free transfer in July, Spurs are allegedly contemplating whether to spend £30m on the player in the coming weeks.

Lingard did not feature in United's 18-man squad as they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.
