Here is your Tottenham Hotspur digest for Tuesday morning.
Spurs board identify the ‘new Luka Modric’
Tottenham have reportedly identified Lovro Majer as their next signing – and are in pole position to secure the signature.
The 23-year-old has made an impressive start in Ligue 1 with Rennes after joining this summer, with a host of clubs said to be monitoring his performances.
Conte is said to be looking to bring in a creative midfielder and according to a report cited by FourFourTwo, Spurs are said to be ahead of Manchester United and Bayern Munich in acquiring the services of Majer – who has been dubbed the new Luka Modric.

Majer cost Rennes just over £10million earlier this summer, but could cost Spurs triple that, if they’re to make a move for the Croat in January.
Tottenham’s classy gesture to fans
Tottenham are offering fans free coach travel for their rearranged Premier League fixture with Burnley, the north London club have confirmed.
Spurs were due to take on the Clarets on Sunday afternoon, but with less than an hour until the match kicked off, the game at Turf Moor was called off due to adverse weather conditions.
The Turf Moor pitch was covered in snow and despite the best efforts from Burnley’s staff, they were unable to make it playable for the clash.
Now, Tottenham have confirmed that supporters travelling up to Burnley for the rearranged fixture will be able to do so free of charge on the coach.
A statement from the club on Monday afternoon read : “Following the postponement of yesterday’s Premier League fixture at Turf Moor, the Club can confirm that match tickets will remain valid for the rearranged fixture…

Spurs fan’s 4,000-mile journey to postponed Burnley game
For those Tottenham fans who made the difficult trip in tough conditions up to Burnley only to be told the game was off 45 minutes before kick-off, at least they had not travelled 4,000 miles to get there.
With trains heading up from London replaced by shuttle services due to engineering work after Preston and Manchester and snow falling heavily in and around Burnley, the trip to get to Turf Moor had already been treacherous.
Then just 45 minutes before kick-off, with Burnley having to wait for Antonio Conte’s Spurs squad’s delayed arrival for them to play their part in the decision, the game was postponed as snow kept covering the pitch.
The travelling Tottenham fans either turned around and went straight home amid the white stuff or they stopped for a while in the town hoping that it would stop.
For two Spurs fans – Ken and Brandi Saxton – the decision to call off the game marked a farcical footnote to their long trip from Dallas in the USA to the snow-covered hills of Burnley and it was left to a Tottenham striker to save the day.
Ken takes up the story of their journey from here.
