Speaking exclusively to talkSPORT, Watford striker Troy Deeney has opened up over his links to Spurs in the summer window and hinted that he would ‘love‘ a move to north London – with the Tottenham target also revealing he ‘saw Jose‘.
Should Spurs still make a move for Deeney?
Deeney was named as one of the strikers who Spurs had their eye on before Daniel Levy eventually secured a loan-to-buy move for Benfica star Carlos Vinicius.
The 32-year-old, speaking candidly to talkSPORT, has now revealed that there was ‘a lot of talks’ over a potential move – with some materialising and others never really getting off the ground.
Tottenham were on the lookout for a back-up striker to Harry Kane, with Deeney being one of the alleged targets, and judging by recent reports, it is feasible that Spurs may not be ruling out a move just yet, given their alleged interest in a triple swoop next summer.
The Englishman arguably fits the Mourinho mould of a ‘powerful’ and ‘aggressive’ centre-forward who can hassle defenders, and the £100,000-per-week frontman has been described as a would-be ‘fantastic signing‘.
Transfer Tavern take
Valued at just £4.5 million by Transfermarkt, along with the fact he is homegrown, Levy appears to have very little to lose regarding a potential January swoop for Deeney as a back-up.
Whether or not Spurs move again for their alleged target in January remains to be seen, but he could still be a fairly noteworthy coup if they do.
