Tottenham could be prepared to spend big this summer for Everton defender Michael Keane, the Express says. According to the paper, Mauricio Pochettino could be ready to shatter Spurs’ transfer record with a £50million offer, but their efforts could be dealt a blow as Arsenal reportedly have the 26-year-old England international in their sights.

Sticking with Spurs, boss Pochettino is said to be happy to keep Hugo Lloris as his number one goalkeeper. The Mail reports that despite a drop in form, Pochettino is more likely to focus on strengthening his back line and midfield positions come the transfer window.
