Specifically, a source from The Mail said that Tottenham Hotspur had aimed to recruit two Southampton players, including midfielder captain James Ward-Prowse and goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu.
In fact, Spurs’ midfield has been weakened a lot since Rodrigo Bentancur retired due to injury. Therefore, the Tottenham leadership will want an upgrade to this area and Ward-Prowse will be an ideal choice.
The English midfielder was once called up by coach Gareth Southgate to the Three Lions squad and he was also impressed by his extremely effective free-kick skills. The presence of the Southampton captain promises to significantly upgrade the strength of the Spurs midfield.
In addition, the Rooster also wants to find a goalkeeper to replace Hugo Lloris in the long run. Therefore, they have targeted Gavin Bazunu, who has played quite impressively this season. The mature goalkeeper from the Manchester City training camp is currently only 21 years old and still has a lot of potential for development ahead.
