Danny Mills: Tottenham should be looking at Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson

In Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min, Tottenham have a really good attack. And let us not forget about Dele Alli or Lucas Moura either.

But could a player from Bournemouth make it even better? Danny Mills certainly thinks so.

Check out what the former Manchester City and Leeds United defender has had to say in this instalment of our Pundit’s Choice feature.

“Would the likes of Tottenham not be interested?,” Mills said to Football Insider when speaking about Wilson.

“He could play alongside Harry Kane, he’s a very, very good player. If I was Tottenham I would be looking at him and thinking: ‘What am I going to get for my money? Actually yes. Is he better than what we’ve got in terms of secondary? Yes,” the Sky Sports pundit added.

With Fernando Llorente, who has not always been convincing to say the least, the only real alternative to Kane in the squad, signing a striker like Wilson makes a lot of sense from Tottenham’s point of view.

The 27-year-old was excellent last season, scoring 14 Premier League goals and averaging one key pass per game, which was significantly more than Llorente’s sole strike and his 0.7 key passes (as per WhoScored).

However, from Wilson’s perspective, it would be a pretty risky move. He would undoubtedly be joining to play second fiddle to Kane, something which Mills did eventually mention after his initial suggestion of a possible partnership.

In the form of his life and now part of the England set-up, he would surely risk jeopardising that by joining a side like Tottenham who have an untouchable No.9.

Bearing that in mind, if it is a choice between the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the Vitality, then Wilson would probably be better off staying on the south coast.
