‘Top player’ is ready for a Premier League move amid Spurs links, says personal coach

Former Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham coach Saul Isaksson-Hurst has been discussing the attributes of Samuel Iling-Junior, and explained how the Juventus winger is ready to make the move to the Premier League amid interest from Spurs.

Spurs have held a longstanding interest in Iling-Junior, with plenty of speculation linking the English winger with a move to North London in January (TV Play).

That move never came to fruition, with Spurs opting to sign Timo Werner on loan instead. It remains to be seen whether the Lilywhites will keep hold of the German beyond this season.

However, rumours have started surfacing again with regards to Iling-Junior, with a suggestion that Juventus could look to offload the winger in the summer according to Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness).

A report from Football Insider last week revealed Spurs were still keen on Iling-Junior, but would face competition from a number of other Premier League clubs for the England Under-21 star.

Iling-Junior has what it takes to succeed in the Premier League

If Iling-Junior does make the switch to the English top flight, he could well be successful. That’s the opinion of Isaksson-Hurst at least, who was speaking about Iling-Junior on the Inside Track podcast. Isaksson-Hurst currently individually coaches Iling-Junior away from Juventus.

He said: “I think he does [have the ability to play in the Premier League at a big club]. If you’re playing for Juventus, one of the biggest clubs in Europe, fairly regularly now, I think you’re not a million miles away. He’s a top player and he has got a great mentality.

“He’s a great young man and he wants to work hard, do extra work and be successful. He’s a modest young man – not one to go out partying and stuff like that. He wants to keep his head down and wants to work really hard – he’s definitely there.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It will be interesting to see where Iling-Junior ends up, if he does make a move this summer. It sounds like he’s destined for the Premier League, but for some reason, I don’t think it will be Spurs who sign him. I can see him joining Brighton, to be honest.
