Tottenham: Spurs eye Harry Souttar -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham have joined Aston Villa in the race to sign Stoke City defender Harry Souttar, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Souttar profiled

Souttar, described as ‘quality’ by Potters boss Michael O’Neill, is 22 years of age and stands at a huge 6 foot 5.

The Australia international has been with Stoke since 2016 and has made 56 senior appearances for the club, 11 of which have come during the current campaign.

He appears to be at the top of his game with a career-high £3.6m Transfermarkt valuation, and it seems as if Daniel Levy is willing to get the chequebook out for Souttar’s services.

Do Spurs need another centre-back?

The Latest: Scouting mission

Football Insider shared a story on Thursday afternoon, claiming Spurs are looking to pip Aston Villa to a deal for Souttar.

They were informed by a Spurs source that the club have sent scouts to watch the defender in action on multiple occasions already this season and are keeping tabs on Souttar ahead of the winter window.

The Verdict: Revenge on Villa?

Villa pipped Spurs to a deal for Caleb Chukwuemeka over the summer, and it appears as if the two could go head-to-head again in the New Year.

However, Tottenham have five senior centre-backs on the books at this moment in time, four of which are 25 years of age or younger, so a winter window deal doesn’t seem vital.

Spurs may like what they see in Souttar, though, so it’ll be interesting if they firm up their interest and battle Villa for his signature.
