Bournemouth readying £6m bid for Spurs and England midfielder, could see five-goal striker head the other way

Ryan Mason

Ryan Mason’s miss against Chelsea could prove to be the last major event of his Tottenham career, if reports from the Evening Standard are to be believed.

Considering the implications following his miss at Stamford Bridge on Monday evening, suggestions that Premier League rivals Bournemouth are lining up a £6m move for the midfielder have barely been met with disgust.

Despite finally breaking the first-team and even making it into the England squad, the 23-year old is far from a regular starter under Mauricio Pochettino and is behind the likes of Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele in the pecking order.

With Champions League football on the way and Spurs likely to be active in the transfer market, the Cherries are believed to be eyeing Mason ahead of a potential summer move.

He is believed to be high on their list of targets heading into next season, aiming to consolidate themselves as a comfortable top flight team.

Should discussions start over Mason, Spurs are thought to retain an interest in Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson in return.

The 25-year old striker started the season on the South Coast well after notching 5 goals in 6 games, though has only recently returned from a lengthy injury since.

However, he is said fit the bill as Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino looks for backups to star striker Harry Kane.

Would Callum Wilson fit in at Spurs? Is a move away from the club exactly what Mason needs?
