Danny Mills tipped Tottenham to swoop for Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell if the Canaries suffer relegation.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England defender admitted he thought Spurs could make a very good signing by recruiting Cantwell.
It was reported that the 21-year-old Norwich midfielder was rated as being worth £30million with Jose Mourinho’s side, Manchester United and Manchester City keen on his services.
Mills was confident Cantwell was the sort of player Spurs will be looking for and will likely be waiting to see if Daniel Farke’s side are relegated before making their move.
When asked if Tottenham will swoop for Cantwell if Norwich are relegated and whether he’ll be a signing with the future in mind, Mills told Football Insider: “Yeah, he is one for the future.
“Bit like Jack Clarke, bit like Dele Alli when they took him and loaned him back, that’s the sort of player they’ll be looking at.
“That’s the sort of idea that they will have, yes it would be a very very good signing but they have to wait and see.”
The left-sided midfielder has scored six goals as well as register four assists in the 21 league outings he has made this season.
Cantwell is Norwich’s second-top goalscorer currently for the season with only striker Teemu Pukki having racked up more goals than him.
The England U-21 international is a product of the Canaries youth system and is contracted to stay at Carrow Road until 2022.
