Tottenham are reportedly keen on Norwich City defender Jamal Lewis ahead of the summer.
According to talkSPORT, Spurs have a “muted interest” in the 22-year-old and he impressed their supporters in games against them this season.
The left-back was part of the Norwich team that knocked Spurs out of the FA Cup on penalties and he also played in a 2-2 league draw against them in December.
Lewis, who earns £5,000-a-week (Spotrac), is a product of the Norwich academy that has come through their youth system and is now an important first teamer.
The left-back has caught the eye in his 23 games across all competitions this term and ticks a lot of boxes in terms of being a modern full-back.
He is a six-time capped Northern Ireland international that has impressed this year during his first taste of the Premier League and it would be no surprise to see him exit Carrow Road if Norwich suffer relegation from the top-flight.
TBR’s View – Spurs should step up interest
Lewis may not be the finished article yet, but has shown so mush promise for Norwich this campaign and should be a Premier League regular.
He offers a decent attacking threat from out wide with his tireless work-rate and scored a brilliant goal at the end of February in the 1-0 league win over Leicester City.
There is certainly a lot more to come from him, so Spurs boss Jose Mourinho should step up interest in the summer and make him a priority target.
They need competition for Ben Davies next season at left-back, plus Danny Rose’s days look numbered after he was sent out on loan to Newcastle United.
