Here is your Tottenham Hotspur morning digest on Friday, October 1.

Insigne alert

Euro 2020 winner Lorenzo Insigne has put Tottenham on alert after the Italian admitted that he is yet to sign a new contract with Napoli.

The 30-year-old’s current deal expires in the summer but revealed that negotiations with the club are yet to start over an extension, despite Insigne graduating through the club’s academy and spending 11 years in the first team.

“I only think about playing and about what happens on the pitch,” Insigne told Sky Sport Italia, via the MailOnline.

“My agent takes care of the other issues. I always put the team in front, I always work hard and I always arrive with a smile. I don’t think about the contract, there’s time to discuss with the club.

“My agent and the club will take care of it, I still have one year.”

Van der Vaart makes bold claim

Former Tottenham midfielder and club legend Rafael van der Vaart has claimed that Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech should have signed for Spurs instead of the Blues.

“With hindsight, it’s easy, but I think it was a wrong choice,” the Dutchman said.

“I hope he still fully blossoms, but if he had gone to Tottenham, for example. They are lacking a player like him. He played very well at Ajax and did the same against Tottenham. Just take him then.

“With a player like that, Tottenham are title contenders, and they’re not now because they have all the same kind of players. It was a pity he went to Chelsea.”

Alderweireld delivers Levy verdict

Former Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld has praised under-fire chairman Daniel Levy, insisting that he has done all can to bring success to the club.

“No, no, I don’t think the club can regret anything. I think they did wonderful,” he said.

“You don’t know all the things that happen in a club. It’s not Football Manager. I know for sure that Levy gave 100 per cent for the club.

“It’s good they’re not happy with where they are now. The structure is there to be one of the biggest clubs in the world. Maybe they need some more time. I know in football there’s no time but I don’t think the club should have done anything else.

“How many times do you see clubs invest too much and then they’re in trouble? Spurs know what it is to be healthy.”
