Tottenham expert issues 'incredible' Rodrigo Bentancur claim after source's reveal - 'staggering'

Rodrigo Bentancur’s recent development at Tottenham is “absolutely incredible.”

That is according to Spurs expert John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

On Wednesday (16 November) Football Insider revealed that Tottenham value Bentancur at more than £50million following his first year at the club.

The midfielder was the hero against Leeds United on Saturday (12 November) scoring twice in three minutes at the end of the game to secure a 4-3 win.

Wenham has been blown away by Bentancur’s development after his recent glut of goals.

“I said three weeks ago that I thought Bentancur was stepping out of the very good category into the world-class category, there is no denying that now,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“He is now on five goals for the season as a holding midfielder, it’s an incredible return, absolutely incredible. These are just normal goals these are match-winning, vital goals.

“Two weeks running he has scored match-winning goals. Two in two minutes to end the hopes of the Leeds fans and what else can I say?

“The deal to bring him here looks better and better every single week. The return on our investment there is staggering.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure watching him develop over the last few months.”
