  • TOTTENHAM have provided an update on the alleged racism incident against Chelsea after Blues ace Antonio Rudiger claimed he was targeted.

    Spurs said: “The Club and the Metropolitan Police have now exhausted all avenues of investigation following the reported incident at our home fixture against Chelsea on 22 December.

    “We carried out extensive reviews of CCTV images and footage, working with professional lip readers. All materials and reports have now also been reviewed by the police who have carried out their own investigation.

    “The police have notified us today that, having reviewed and investigated, they have closed the crime report as they can find no evidence to support the allegation of racial abuse.

    “We fully support Antonio Rudiger with the action that he took – however there is no evidence to corroborate or contradict the allegation and as such neither ourselves nor the police are in a position to take any further action.

    “We are fiercely proud of our anti-racism work and our zero tolerance of any form of discrimination. This is one reason why we have attributed so much time and resource to investigating this matter.

    “Had we identified anyone guilty of this we were intent on issuing them with a lifetime ban from our stadium as they would have no place among our proud, diverse fan base.

    “If any new information comes to light, this will be fully investigated.”

  • ANTONIO CONTE is leading the chase for a £10million reunion with Olivier Giroud at Inter Milan.

    West Ham, Aston Villa and Newcastle are also tracking Chelsea’s unsettled striker who has been told to find a new club by France boss Didier Deschamps.

    But it is understood the World Cup winner would prefer a move abroad over a Premier League relegation battle.

    Ex-Blues boss Conte signed Giroud for £18m from Arsenal in January 2018 only to be sacked six months later, eventually turning up in Italy last summer.

  • CHELSEA, Liverpool and Tottenham are monitoring Brighton defender Ben White, according to reports.

    The centre-back has been a regular during his loan spell at least and all three clubs have scouted him frequently over the past few weeks.

    Sky Sports also claim that Liverpool will not make any move for White in this window, so the Blues could be in position to buy the 22-year-old before loaning him back to Leeds.
