The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are always on the lookout for the next big thing, and we recently made the case for them signing West Ham ace Declan Rice.
Rice has emerged as quite the talent over the last year or so, and it seems that some Spurs fans are interested in the prospect of him signing for the club.
We recently asked fans whether they’d like to see the club move for Rice, and 33% of those that responded said that they would.
This is significant because as of yet, Spurs are yet to register their interest in him, at least as far as we know. Not to mention, he’s also playing for a current London rival.
Typically, fans will prioritise their interest in players that the club itself is targeting, but in this case, a third of fans are hoping that the Lilywhites identify a fresh target.
In truth, it’s no real surprise that he is attracting some fans. Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld is yet to sign a new deal and is facing an uncertain future, and you could view Rice as the perfect replacement.
That said, it’s also easy to see why fans are against the idea. He’s relatively unproven, given that he’s just 19-years-old, and so it’s tough to say definitively that he’d be a fantastic replacement for someone like Alderweireld.
Either way, Spurs may need to be in the market for a new defender this summer, and Rice may be a good choice.
