Report: Club braced for a transfer bid from Spurs for talented winger

Tottenham Hotspur have certainly been lacking quality out wide in recent seasons having tried and failed to recruit talent who can do the job.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Clinton N’Jie have both failed miserably to try and make an impression when given a chance which saw N’Jie leave the club on a permanent deal and Nkoudou shipped off to Monaco on loan.

Erik Lamela also continues to be a frustration with his continuous injury problems and inconsistent form.

Spurs are rumoured to be in the market for a wide new man this summer with Leeds United’s Jack Clarke.

The Daily Mail are reporting that Leeds are expecting a £12million bid to be made by Tottenham during the current transfer window.

Clarke has impressed during his first season in the Championship with the Elland Road outfit and their failure to gain promotion back to the Premier League could certainly play in Tottenham’s favour.

Opinion

The 18-year-old is considered to be one of the brightest talents playing outside of the top flight.  However, Spurs need players who are ready to hit the ground and make a difference from the first game of the season rather than someone who just has potential.

  1. Spurs may need players who can hit the ground running but they also need players with the potential to be future stars. The opportunity to buy Brooks and Madison before they came to the Prem was there, but we chose not to. We still covet both players but the buy price has doubled or tripled. There are no guarantees but buying Clarke (or Bowen of Hull) is a punt worth taking, especially at less than 20M for a home grown talent.
    Should they be a priority – no, if it’s a choice of using the 20m for NDombele then that is where it has to go, but I’d hope the budget includes enough money for Clarke and Sessegnon, two young English players with the potential to save us a boatload of money in the foreseeable future.
