The Lowdown: Spurs set sights on lower league talent…
Tottenham chief Fabio Paratici is allegedly leaving no stone unturned in his search for top talent, not excluding England’s lower leagues.
Peterborough United wing-back Benjamin Mensah and Middlesbrough starlet Djed Spence are two players who have been linked with a north London move recently and Savin, currently of Accrington Stanley, is another.
The young goalkeeper has impressed under John Coleman in recent seasons, allegedly attracting the interest of Spurs, with Wenham now sharing what he knows.
The Latest: Wenham shares what he’s been told…
As per his sources, speaking to FI, Tottenham are ‘very keen’ on Savin and the insider expects Paratici to make a move ‘as soon as the window opens’.
“I’m always happy for Tottenham to be signing up young, English talent from the lower leagues,” he explained.
“From what I’m told, Tottenham are massively interested in him and we have had scouts watching him extensively.
“I do expect we will make a move for him as soon as the summer window opens.
“What I think could then happen is he could be loaned back to Accrington for the 2022/23 season.
“He might even be loaned to a team in the league above, I’m not sure.
“But from what I was told, Tottenham are very. very keen on him.”
The Verdict: Get it done…
Also drawing attention from the likes of Man United, Savin has arguably stood out as one of the most promising keepers in the Football League in recent seasons.
Coleman has already lavished praise on the ‘outstanding‘ homegrown youngster and we believe he has the potential to be a future heir for Hugo Lloris should he continue his rise.
The colossal 6 foot 4 ace could well be one to keep an eye on.
