According to a report published at Vital Sports, who they claim to be their exclusive, Spurs are keen on Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse as Christian Eriksen’s replacement.
The report further notes that Pochettino has a great rapport with the 24-year-old from his time at Southampton.
“The heads of the Tottenham recruitment squad are being challenged to seek young athletic replacements for Spanish bound Christian Eriksen.
It has already been agreed by the management that any bid north of £100million will be accepted and Mauricio Pochettino will be given this and more to strengthen our squad.
Top of Mauricio’s list is the Southampton midfield maestro James Ward-Prowse. There has been a lot of rubbish written about Tottenham targets for the next window but this one will definitely happen.
The player is keen, he is top of Mo Po’s list and Southampton are a selling club who we can do business with. Relegation for the Saints would make this deal a certainty but even if they survive you can expect to see James Ward-Prowse in a Tottenham shirt next year.” – Vital Football
