Former Leeds United defender Danny Mills has backed Tottenham to make a move for Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell if the Canaries suffer relegation from the Premier League at the end of the season.
Norwich have had a poor first half of the season upon their return to the Premier League and are currently rooted to the bottom of the table with 14 points.
With Daniel Farke’s side being seven points clear of safety, relegation back to the Championship is a real possibility for the Canaries.
Cantwell has been one of the few bright sparks for the club so far this campaign as he has impressed particularly in some of his performances against the big six sides.
His performances have reportedly already bought him to the attention of some big hitters with Spurs, Manchester United and Manchester City all linked with a move for him (Daily Mail).
Danny Mills has suggested that Lilywhites could win the race for Cantwell since he fits the profile the club generally goes for.
When asked if Tottenham could sign the 21-year-old if Norwich go down this season, Mills told Football Insider: “Yeah, he is one for the future.
“A bit like Jack Clarke, bit like Dele Alli when they took him and loaned him back, that’s the sort of player they’ll be looking at.
“That’s the sort of idea that they will have, yes it would be a very very good signing but they have to wait and see.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Cantwell is still quite a raw talent with a seemingly high ceiling and so could be a decent addition for the right money. However, the move isn’t really a priority as Spurs have the likes of Dele Alli, Giovani Lo Celso, Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen (for now) who can all play in a similar position.
