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

Real Madrid transfer news: Zidane explains Bale omission, Premier League return most likely

Real Madrid's sole focus today is on their Champions League last-16 second leg with Manchester City, which they trail 2-1 on aggregate at the midway stage.

That is not to say plans are not still ongoing behind the scenes with regards to incoming and outgoing transfer activity, however, with Gareth Bale's future very much back in the spotlight.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news of possible comings and goings at the Bernabeu.

Friday morning's Real Madrid transfer talk news roundup:

Zinedine Zidane: 'Gareth Bale's call to miss Manchester City clash'

Bale's omission from Real Madrid's travelling party for Friday's tie with Man City was made all the more surprising by Sergio Ramos's inclusion - the skipper having been ruled out of the match through suspension.

Explaining the decision at his pre-match news conference on Thursday, Zinedine Zidane stated that it was the Welshman's decision to be overlooked for selection.

Talk of a summer exit for Bale is now in overdrive, with a number of teams believed to be keeping a close eye on the situation.

The 31-year-old has scored just three times in 20 appearances for Los Blancos this season and has featured only twice for Zidane's side since their campaign resumed in June.

'Gareth Bale wants Premier League return'

A return to the Premier League seems the most likely outcome for Bale if he does indeed leave the Bernabeu in the coming weeks.

According to Spanish football expert Alvaro Montero, the former Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur ace is holding out for an offer from an English club.

However, Montero claims that a move is unlikely to go through due to Bale's substantial wages.

Tottenham and Manchester United have both recently been linked with a summer move, while Newcastle United were also credited with an interest before their takeover fell through.

Wolverhampton Wanderers make Max Aarons approach?

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly leading the race to sign Norwich City full-back Max Aarons.

Having suffered an immediate relegation back down to the Championship in the 2019-20 campaign, the Canaries will most likely be resigned to losing several key players this summer.

Despite finishing rock-bottom of the pile, Aarons impressed for Daniel Farke's men and is expected to be in high demand prior to the start of next season.

A whole host of clubs have been linked with a swoop for the 20-year-old, but according to Football Insider, Wolves have already made contact with Norwich over a potential transfer.

However, the report also claims that Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Bayern Munich are all in the running and have not given up hope of securing the defender's signature.

The England Under-21 international, who is under contract at Carrow Road until 2024, could reportedly be available for a reasonable figure of £18m this summer.
