Transfer Balls: The Mirror says that Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson “tops Spurs wishlist”. The Cherries’ striker is, apparently, heading to Spurs for £12m. Well, maybe.

The tabloids love to talk of transfer lists. In recent times, the tabloids have told us other player who sat atop The Tottenham list:

The Metro in 2010: “Croatian Lionel Messi’ Mateo Kovacic on Spurs’ transfer wish-list”. (He was Mateo Kovacic he still is).

Daily Mirror: “Yevhen Konoplyanka, who is one of the hottest properties in Ukraine football” was at the top of the list.

The Daily Mail said in March 2012: “Get Remy and Hazard! Redknapp targets duo to launch Spurs summer spree”

In 2014, the Telegraph told readers that these players we all on the Spurs wishlist:

Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea, £25m

Jay Rodriguez, Southampton, £15m

Loic Remy, Queens Park Rangers, £8m

Mattia Destro, Roma, £12m

Alvaro Vadillo, Real Betis, £8m

Dejan Lovren, Southampton, £15m

Daley Blind, Ajax, £8m

Morgan Schneiderlin, Southampton, £15m

Spurs bought none of them.
