Some Spurs fans want the club to take a punt on Troy Deeney this summer after Watford’s relegation from the Premier League.
Watford’s 3-2 defeat against Arsenal in their final game of the season and Aston Villa’s point against West Ham sealed the Hornett’s Championship fate this year.
Deeney was understandably quite emotional after the final whistle, having spent ten long years at Vicarage Road.
In fact, the 32-year-old’s influence at Watford on and off the pitch was a key part of the club’s impressive showing over the last few years.
Deeney has proven himself to be a handful for Premier League defences, although his performances have dropped off a bit in the past couple of seasons.
However, some Tottenham fans are convinced that the experienced striker would be a good fit for the way Jose Mourinho wants to play.
They insisted that Deeney could serve as a useful backup up to Harry Kane.

Seriously think Deeney would be a perfect backup for Kane

Hojbjerg, Eze, Deeney & 2 new full backs

I’d take him. Better than we got as back up. Hates arsenal!

If it's between the two, it's Deeney all day. Has the experience, is a consistent performer and would be suitable backup to Kane.

I wholeheartedly agree. Deeney has been superb this season and Spurs should spend £15-20m on him. In no way is this tweet sarcasm https://t.co/1jiL2kjev2

Is it bad that I’d actually like to see a player like Deeney at Spurs. Not sure he’s an intelligent c**t but he’s defo a crafty c**t

I would have been much more receptive to the idea of signing Deeney a couple of years ago but there are clear signs that he is on the decline. Having said that, he could still be a very useful plan B for us and could do a similar job to the one Fernando Llorente did. However, I would prefer someone like Callum Wilson, who is still in his prime.
