Speaking to Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur ‘insider’ John Wenham has shared what he knows as managing director Fabio Paratici allegedly eyes a swoop for West Ham star Jarrod Bowen.
The Lowdown: Spurs scouts get tracking…
As per The Independent, it appears Tottenham and Paratici have now taken a keen interest in signing the Irons attacker who has thoroughly impressed under David Moyes so far.
Indeed, as they reported earlier this week, Spurs are long-time admirers of the Englishman and have been circling alongside the likes of Liverpool and Leicester City.
The Latest: Lilywhites source shares what he knows…
Speaking to FI, Lilywhites source and ‘insider’ Wenham has shared what he knows on this interest and reliably informs whether this deal could indeed happen.
“West Ham spent £18million on him and would obviously look for a lot more than that to sell him,”
“Tottenham and West Ham don’t do business. There is no love lost between the two clubs at boardroom level.
“I don’t see West Ham entertaining any bids for Bowen from Tottenham, that one is a non-starter.
“Tottenham may be interested in him but some clubs just don’t do business.
“I would categorically rule that one out now. Even if West Ham said he was available they would turn down an approach from Tottenham.
“From what I’ve heard from people I know in the industry, I just can’t see that one happening.”
The Verdict: Blow for Spurs fans?
Going by the numbers, Bowen would be a stellar signing for Spurs, so it comes as a blow that this N17 source sees it as a non-starter.
As well as this, talkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan recently labelled him a ‘world-beater’ for his fine form (talkSPORT via Read West Ham).
