Tottenham tipped to succeed in pursuit of Manchester United ace


Tottenham Hotspur have enjoyed quite a summer so far.

After such a disappointing campaign last time out it was always going to be essential that the north London side looked to kick on.

After all finishing in sixth place is far from good enough for Daniel Levy.

The club moved quickly to bring in the solid additions of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty.

Those deals looked like shrewd additions, but it was what followed that really set pulses racing.

A spectacular double deal for Sergio Reguilon and club favourite Gareth Bale ensured that supporters will go through the season with genuine optimism that they have what it takes to push themselves back into the top four.

But it seems that Tottenham aren't done yet.

Reports have suggested that Jose Mourinho could be plotting a move for Jesse Lingard.


The Manchester United man has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford and looks set to be available for a move this summer.

While a move is far from agreed, former Spurs striker Darren Bent has been discussing the move and claims that it could be in Lingard's best interests to get his career back on track.

Discussing a potential move to Spurs via the Express, Bent told TalkSPORT, Bent said: “I like Jesse, but I think he does need a change of scenery.

"I think he needs to maybe get out of Old Trafford.

"“I know that it has been his club since he was young, but I think everyone at some stage, unless things keep going well, keep going on the upward spiral, everyone needs a change of scenery, just to freshen up a little bit.


"I think Jesse is definitely one of them players that could do with a change of direction.”

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

This is a move that seems to make a lot of sense.

Valued at £15.75million by Transfermarkt, Jesse Lingard is a player who has proven himself as a good Premier League player.

But his future with Manchester United seems to be uncertain.

Tottenham Hotspur still need creativity in their midfield and I think that he could be a good option.


Jose Mourinho demands that his players work tirelessly and have the stamina levels to keep up the intensity over the full 90 minutes, and that's something that Lingard would definitely bring.

Whether a deal can be agreed is up for debate, as there's been little in the way of progress over a move.

That said, it certainly seems to stack up.

Both Manchester United and Tottenham would benefit from the deal, while Jesse Lingard would have the opportunity to kickstart his career after a difficult period.
