Paul Robinson has hinted that Tottenham would likely only be able to sign West Ham United winger Jarrod Bowen if they are able to guarantee him regular game time.
Spurs were previously linked with acquiring the 24-year-old during his time at Hull City.
It was also recently reported that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have still been keeping tabs on the Hammers winger, but have been joined by other Premier League sides in Liverpool and Leicester City.
Bowen has started the season well for West Ham starting each of their six league games so far.
Spurs currently have the likes of Heung-min Son, Steven Bergwijn, Lucas Moura and Bryan Gil who occupy the wide areas, which could make it unappealing for Bowen if he were to join.
However, ex-Spurs goalkeeper Robinson believes his former side have promised the winger they will clear a path for him to gain regular minutes in North London, and could push for a move to get their long-term target.
Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “I can’t see where he would fit in at Tottenham at the moment. Would he want to leave West Ham, where he has been integral, to play a bit-part role at Spurs?
“Spurs have got Son, Bergwijn, Lo Celso, Gil. They are very strong in the forward areas.
“Unless he has been promised something else, promised that Spurs are going to clear players out.
“It’s going to be an interesting window at Spurs. Bowen is still very young so he has the opportunity to play at the top level for a number of years yet.”

Bowen has been a target for Spurs before and has shown his talent in the Premier League for West Ham. Spurs have quite a bit of depth in the wide areas and are unlikely to shift any of those players any time soon, which makes it difficult to fit someone like Bowen in.
