Report: Paratici impressed by Garner every time he saw him last year

Fabio Paratici was impressed by James Garner every time he went to watch Djed Spence last season amid reports Tottenham now want to sign the Manchester United youngster, according to Football London.

Garner is one of the latest names to find himself on the Tottenham radar. Reports on Monday claimed that Spurs are one of the sides who have monitored the 21-year-old.

Manchester United are ready to sell Garner. And he could leave for as little as £14 million.

Fabrizio Romano then reported later in the day that a Tottenham move for Garner is looking unlikely. But that is not down to the Spurs hierarchy not being admirers of the midfielder.

Of course, Paratici has already signed a player this summer Garner knows well. Like Garner, Spence spent last season on loan with Nottingham Forest.

And Football London reports that Paratici was impressed with Garner on every occasion in which he went to look at Spence.

Garner and Spence both played pivotal roles in Forest securing promotion. So it is no surprise that the Manchester United man caught Paratici’s eye along with Spence.

But Tottenham probably do not need to sign another young midfielder this summer. They have added Yves Bissouma in this window. And Antonio Conte will hope to have Oliver Skipp available for most of the campaign.

Of course, the squad is going to be stretched. Tottenham will be battling on four fronts this season.

But they will potentially have much greater priorities for the final stages of the window.

However, Tottenham will certainly be one team to keep an eye on while Garner’s future remains uncertain – particularly if he remains at Manchester United beyond this window.
