Tottenham are looking to make a bid to sign Lewis Cook from Bournemouth, according to the Daily Star. The report claims that Mauricio Pochettino might have to spend £30m to sign the 21-year-old midfielder.

Spurs have not bought a single player in the summer so far but are ready to test Bournemouth’s resilience. The 21-year-old Cook only moved to the Cherries a couple of seasons ago as Eddie Howe paid £7m to sign the Englishman from Leeds.

Cook’s teammate Simon Francis also believes that any club looking to sign the youngster up would have to pay big. He was quoted by the Daily Star as saying,

“If clubs were in for Lewis Cook now, you would be looking at £20m or £30m.”

There is interest in the midfielder as Jurgen Klopp is a big admirer of the 21-year-old. Cook played 29 times for the Cherries last season as he notched up a couple of assists. He also played in the U20 World Cup and led the Three Lions to victory in the tournament.

The Englishman’s impressive performances for Bournemouth also had him as a standby for the World Cup squad.

While Tottenham have an injury crisis in midfield with Moussa Sissoko and Victor Wanyama nursing injuries, a move for Cook would be pretty good.

The Englishman is young and has a lot of potential, something that Pochettino can work with. If he is available for around £30m, it would be a good deal for us as we look to add quality players to a pretty decent Tottenham squad.
