Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in Southampton ace James Ward-Prowse

According to The Daily Mail, Tottenham remains interested in acquiring the services of Southampton star James Ward-Prowse.

The North London club have recently made a statement of intent with the signing of James Maddison from Leicester City. However, it seems that their ambition doesn’t stop there and they want more midfield reinforcements.

The midfielder has caught the attention of several clubs, and Tottenham is among them. West Ham and Fulham are also rumoured to be in the race for his signature. Ward-Prowse is widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s finest number 8s.

With an impressive tally of 17 direct free-kick goals in his Premier League career, he is just one goal behind the legendary David Beckham. Ward-Prowse’s dead-ball precision and ability to find the back of the net from long-range make him a valuable asset for any team.

Having already secured the signature of James Maddison this summer for a reported fee of £40 million, Tottenham’s squad is already bolstered with attacking talent. Maddison, predominantly an attacking midfielder during his time at Leicester City, could potentially be deployed as a number 8 under the guidance of manager Ange Postecoglou.

Should Tottenham pursue the signing of Ward-Prowse, it raises intriguing questions about how both Jameses could be integrated into the team. Tottenham’s midfield options would undoubtedly be enhanced, and the competition for places would be fierce.

However, the decision ultimately rests with Ward-Prowse himself. If he seeks regular playing time, he may be enticed by the likes of West Ham or Aston Villa, who can offer more guaranteed minutes on the pitch.

Tottenham, under the stewardship of manager Ange Postecoglou, is undergoing a summer rebuild. The acquisitions of James Maddison and Guglielmo Vicario have already made a statement of intent.
