Former striker Chris Sutton has tipped Norwich City’s Todd Cantwell to play for a top six club in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspur and a host of top flight clubs including Manchester United and Manchester City have been credited with an interest in the midfielder in recent months.

The Daily Mail claimed in January that Spurs are keeping tabs on the 22-year-old who is under contract at Carrow Road until 2022.

Cantwell was on target in the Canaries FA Cup defeat to Manchester United yesterday when he let fly from 25 yards with a low swerving shot that beat the reach of Sergio Romero.

Sutton, who started his career at Norwich described Cantwell as an exceptional talent, who can with time further develop his game to become a top player.

Cantwell has been of Norwich’s plus points in what has been a disappointing season for the side upon their return to the Premier League and currently find themselves with an uphill battle to avoid the drop at the first time of asking.

Sutton said on BBC Radio 5 Live: “I think eventually he’ll play [for a] top-six club. I think he’s got more developing to do so he can become a more rounded player, but I think he’s an exceptional, exceptional player.”
