Exclusive: Ex-Spurs ace makes transfer claim amid Potter link - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Former Tottenham Hotspur star Paul Stewart insists that Graham Potter would be a fine appointment for the club, and believes he could well bring both Lewis Dunk and Yves Bissouma with him to north London.

Spurs are still on the lookout for a new boss after sacking Jose Mourinho in mid-April.

Ryan Mason ultimately led the club to a seventh-placed finish, ensuring qualification to the Europa Conference League.

Links with both Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte have ultimately come to nothing and Potter is still being touted as a potential target.

Brighton finished 15th in the Premier League table but, per Understat, their xG rate means they should have finished 10th.

Both Dunk and Bissouma have developed into key players at Brighton, in central defence and central midfield respectively, and Stewart believes they could both come to Spurs along with Potter if he were appointed.

Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, Stewart said: “He’s done wonders at Brighton, to keep them in the Premier League. When you watch them, they do play good stuff, I’ve been impressed by the football they play.

“I’m very impressed with the big centre-half, Dunk, I think someone will snap him up because unfortunately Brighton won’t be able to hold onto their better players and I think they’re resigned. Bissouma in midfield, as well, is somebody you’d be looking at.

“And if Graham Potter does get the job, and having worked with them two players in particular, I think there’d be strong links with them.”
