Tottenham Hotspur have made Norwich City playmaker Todd Cantwell one of their top targets in the summer transfer market, according to Football Insider.
The North London club will surely look to strengthen Jose Mourinho’s squad at the end of the campaign and Spurs could take advantage of the Canaries’ perilous top-flight status.
Norwich are currently bottom of the pile in the Premier League, six points adrift of safety and there will undoubtedly be many takers for some of their players, including Cantwell, should they be relegated.
Even if Norwich do stay up, the club could be tempted to cash in on the youngster’s breakthrough season with his contract expiring in 2022.
Tottenham have a good reputation in the market for signing and developing youth players, with Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Ben Davies prime examples of this.
Cantwell would surely have to bide his time at Spurs but a move to North London would surely be of interest to the 22-year-old.
He showcased just why he is so highly rated in the market to Tottenham first hand in midweek, playing 120 minutes and scoring in the shootout as Norwich knocked out Tottenham out of the FA Cup on penalties.
Spurs are thus stepping up their efforts to sign him, according to the report, with Cantwell a potential extra option for Mourinho in midfield.
Cantwell has scored six goals and provided two assists in 28 appearances in the Premier League this season, playing primarily from the left but also having the versatility to play through the middle behind the striker.
