The Spurs have grabbed headlines this week after securing the services of Davinson Sanchez in an effort to strengthen the side defensively.

Controversial striker Diego Costa remains AWOL in Brazil and appears incredibly unlikely ever to play for Antonio Conte again as he seeks to force through a return to Atletico Madrid before the transfer window slams shut on 31 August. "Why not? I hope because this could be a fantastic challenge for me and also for the club, to stay together and also to play with this team in a new stadium".
