TOTTENHAM Hotspur and Liverpool have both struggled to adapt since the departure of their star man, with Gareth Bale leaving Spurs last summer and Luis Suarez exiting Anfield this July.
Both clubs have endured a difficult start to this season, and according to a report in one of today’s newspapers, both are set to compete for the same player in January.
That is just one of the stories to have made the headlines, though, with Manchester United, Sunderland and Arsenal among the other clubs to feature.
