Football Insider Verdict
It would be interesting to know if Tottenham have their own man in the stands to keep an eye on Sallai playing against them. Having him there at Wembley stadium would be great to see how the Hungarian international can perform against Premier League sides and on a cold night in the British Isles. Anyone who is dubbed as the next something has usually done something right to deserve that tag but it’s not always health to start comparing young talent otherwise they start to believe their own hype. Sallai is best to just ignore the speculation and do his talking on the pitch. It won’t be long before surely someone comes in and snaps him up.
