Sky Sports journalist Micheal Bridge has made a ‘surprise’ Tottenham Hotspur transfer claim involving Wales international Daniel James.
The Lilywhites and their manager Antonio Conte have been linked with further moves in the transfer window despite having already sealed eight major signings in total.
Including a permanent deal for superstar defender Cristian Romero, Spurs have also added Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence and Destiny Udogie to their roster.
The Premier League giants have been linked with late moves for James and Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech, with Bridge now sharing what he knows on the former.
Speaking to GiveMeSport, the reporter says that Spurs eyeing the 24-year-old comes as a ‘surprise’.
Bridge added that Conte has given the green-light for Tottenham to make a move, as the journalist stated:
“It sounds to me that it’s one Conte’s given the thumbs up to. It is a bit of an eye-opener. There is an element of surprise to it, but it seems like Tottenham are playing a certain way, aren’t they? You know, breaking on the counter-attack.”
Hailed by Wales boss Robert Page as ‘unbelievable’ and ‘talented’ for his displays in his country’s colours, if James were to replicate that at club level, Spurs could have a real talent on their hands.
At the very least, the 24-year-old’s ‘frightening pace‘ could prove an asset for Conte and a nightmare for defenders, especially in the final stages of closely-contested matches.
Indeed, the young forward could prove to a useful weapon for Spurs if they manage to get him over the line before the 11pm deadline, although they will have to fend off serious interest from Fulham.
