After a season of disappointment, we can't really see much that would cap off Spurs' season more appropriately than Christian Eriksen deciding to change his mind and push for a move away from the club. The Dane has been the obvious bright spot over the second half of the season, his performances, goals and creativity impressing pretty much everyone, and it's easy to forget that he only turned 22 in February.

Only recently Eriksen claimed that his happiness at White Hart Lane was not dependent on Champions League football, but quotes in the Daily Express at least hint at Spurs being a stepping stone to an altogether more glamorous location.

"I'm incredibly happy that they [Spurs] seem happy with me," Eriksen said. "I am very glad that they like what they see.

"Of course I have a dream and a secret plan in my head. But I keep it to myself. Right now I live in the moment and enjoy the success I have."

Whether or not that secret plan involves Nabil Bentaleb alongside him remains to be seen.

It is little surprise that the Metro have gone big on Diego Costa joining Chelsea, on the basis that it's a transfer most believe will happen this summer, and so takes very little 'balls on the line' reporting.

However, the paper do slip an interesting figure into a story that comprises of just seven lines, namely that Chelsea will pay £50million for the striker. That's considerably more than the £32million or even £40million that has been mooted elsewhere.

Costa has been ruddy excellent this season in both La Liga and the Champions League, but that's a huge fee for a striker who had never scored more than ten league goals in a season until this campaign.

Paying £50million for a Spanish striker that has a history at Atletico Madrid? What could possibly go wrong?

It seems that Tottenham's hierarchy are resigned to losing Hugo Lloris this summer (with Paris St Germain the presumed destination), so much so that the papers are now more focussed on touting his replacement at White Hart Lane.

The Daily Mirror report that Ben Foster could be the answer to Spurs' needs, with West Brom's England international reportedly top of the club's shopping list. The goalkeeper certainly impressed in the weekend fixture between the two sides, making a string of excellent saves.

Good way to make yourself feel old on a Monday morning: Realising that Ben Foster is now 31.
