Former Hull City defender Alex Bruce, has tipped Tottenham to complete a deal for Callum Wilson this summer.

The Sun reported last week that Tottenham were looking to sign the Bournemouth striker in a £10million deal following the Cherries’ relegation from the Premier League.

However, the Lilywhites are reportedly facing competition from West Ham United and Newcastle United for Wilson, who Bournemouth reportedly rate at £20million (Sky Sports).

Meanwhile, The Daily Mail have claimed that Jose Mourinho’s men are also looking at Watford’s Troy Deeney as an alternative option.

Bruce has suggested that he would not be surprised to see Tottenham snap up the Bournemouth forward this summer to act as an understudy to Kane.

He claimed that the England international is one of a number players that will leave the Vitality Stadium following their relegation.

The pundit told Football Insider: “He’s a good player, I’m sure there’s a number of Bournemouth players. They’ve got four or five very decent ones.

“It wouldn’t surprise me if we saw them move on. The likes of Josh King, David Brooks and Ake are all good enough.

“It’ll be a tough time for Bournemouth and their supporters seeing their best players leave but unfortunately with relegation, you’d expect if the price is right the likes of Callum Wilson to be moving on.

“If he does go to Tottenham it might not be a bad option to have Callum Wilson and Harry Kane in your armoury for Jose Mourinho, so it wouldn’t surprise me if we do see him go there.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Between Wilson and Deeney, I would prefer us to get Wilson. The 28-year-old might not be as good a target man as the Watford star but he can play alongside Kane with his ability to get in behind the opposition defence. He is still in his prime and has shown that he can score goals in the Premier League.
