Tottenham Hotspur have been extremely impressive in recent times as they continue to gather momentum, with the Premier League title still within their reach.
Spurs really have surprised everyone by enjoying a lot of success in Harry Kane and Dele Alli’s absence, as many thought they wouldn’t be able to cope without the world-class pair.
Interestingly, it appears as if Mauricio Pochettino is possibly looking towards the summer, as according to Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur are very keen on signing Jarrod Bowen.
Indeed, Christian Eriksen’s future remains uncertain and AS (via talkSport) reported last month that the Dane is unlikely to sign a new deal with the Premier League club. So, perhaps Bowen could be his replacement.
Bowen has the ability to operate on either flank or centrally and he’s established himself as one of the best attackers in the Championship this season, with a whopping 16 goals and three assists to his name. He’s still very young at 22 years of age and but he’s already shown that he has what it takes to produce on a consistent basis.
Sky Sports reported last month that Spurs may have had to pay £20 million to secure him in January, but nothing came of the interest. It’s clear to see that Spurs wouldn’t exactly have to break the bank to sign Bowen as his current club Hull City reportedly only wanted £20 million last month, and Eriksen is valued at £72 million (by Transfermarkt), so the Englishman could be a perfect but cheap replacement.
The Hull City man would be the perfect potential replacement for Eriksen as he’s hungry to impress and has shown that he can score a very impressive amount of goals, as well as providing for his teammates, so the attacking ability is certainly there. It’s safe to say that Bowen isn’t on the same level as Eriksen just yet as he’s just starting to reach his full potential in the Championship, but he certainly has all the ingredients to become a future star and could definitely fill the huge void left by Eriksen if he leaves at the end of the season.
So, after witnessing Dele Alli’s rise in the Premier League, it would make perfect sense for Spurs to dip into the Football League to find their next star.
