Any club chasing Poch must still negotiate with Levy - Paper Round

There's a Tottenham theme to Monday's Paper Round with Mauricio Pochettino, Christian Eriksen and Giovani Lo Celso all featuring.

Levy-ing a fee

Paper Round's view: A savvy deal and one which shows you it all ended on relatively good terms. You have to laugh, though. After Poch goes, they bring in Jose for £15m a year and look set to ease that new salary with a bumper compensation package for the old boss.

Paper Round's view: Not a surprising move, but it will be intriguing to see how heavily Eriksen features under Mourinho, not only in the build-up to the January transfer window but also after should he remain at the club until the summer. He may be planning for life after Eriksen, but he may still need to rely on the playmaker in the meantime.

Lo Celso wants Spurs exit

Paper Round's view: You would imagine Lo Celso is intent on impressing new manager Mourinho before he labels his switch to Spurs as a failed move, but only time will tell to see if he can force his way into Mourinho's plans.

Giroud leaving in January?

Paper Round's view: With Euro 2020 looming it's no surprise to see Giroud wants more regular football, not like that prevents French boss Didier Deschamps anyway. But where next? Answers on a postcard, and all that.
