Tottenham: Spurs hold ‘shock interest’ in Daniel James

Tottenham: Spurs hold ‘shock interest’ in Daniel James -Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur are surprisingly interested in Leeds United forward Daniel James, according to reliable journalist Alan Nixon.

The Lowdown: Gil replacement wanted

As reported by the Evening Standard, if Spurs winger Bryan Gil does end up leaving the club before next Thursday’s transfer deadline, Lilywhites manager Antonio Conte will demand a direct replacement.

Having already welcomed a £60m Richarlison to the plethora of forwards available at his disposal, the Italian boss is obviously keen to keep strength in his squad’s depth and rotational options, with a busy season ahead competing in both the Premier League and the Champions League.

Consequently, a number of wide players and attacking midfielders have been touted with a move to Hotspur Way, with a surprising addition now added to the list.

The Latest: Nixon’s news

Nixon has shared the latest Tottenham transfer news, revealing an unexpected name is now being linked with the north London club.

Taking to Twitter, the reliable journalist said: “Spurs shock interest in Dan James.”

Simply titled on his Patreon, Nixon added that indeed “Spurs want” the Wales international in what could be a dramatic late saga this summer.

The Verdict: Questionable signing

After failing to make a significant impact at Manchester United, where he contributed nine goals and nine assists in 74 games for the club, the Wales speedster was offered a lifeline at Elland Road, joining the Whites in a deal worth £25m.

Whilst the winger was a regular at Leeds last season, he didn’t stand out in the relegation-threatened side, adding just four goals to his Premier League tally.

Therefore, this appears to be a strange move by Tottenham, who have been linked with a myriad of attackers this summer.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

However, James still shows signs of some untapped promise. Earlier this year, pundit Micah Richards hailed the 24-year-old for his ‘outstanding’ performance against Aston Villa: “I’ve seen a measured, a more composed approach, his runs in behind – as a defender, it’s an absolute nightmare.”

The Spurs hierarchy may have spotted something they really like in the winger’s ability to stretch games – perhaps as an option off the bench against tired legs – although this appears to be a questionable candidate by Conte’s usual standards.
