Spurs reportedly want 'special' talent who is on the same level as Gini Wijnaldum

Spurs are reportedly interested in Norwich City star Todd Cantwell and they could have quite the talent on their hands if they do land him.

Reports this week have suggested that Cantwell is one of a number of players on the list for new Spurs supremo Fabio Paratici.

The England under-21 star has been one of the shining lights for Norwich for some time now. He enjoyed a fine season in the Premier League even though they get relegated, before being key as they romped to promotion last season.

And if Cantwell was to end up signing for Spurs, then the Londoners would be getting a player who has been tipped for greatness before.

Talent

Cantwell has been highly-regarded for a while now. Indeed, Liverpool were looking at him last summer as well.

And it’s little surprise, given the compliments he has had already in his young career.

His former youth coach, Gary Cockaday, branded Cantwell as ‘special’, thanks to some of the moments he could produce in training.

Further to those comments, his manager during his loan spell with Fortuna Sittard, told the Athletic that Cantwell had a higher ceiling than the likes of Gini Wijnaldum.

“I’ve worked with Danny (the Portugal international) and, in his youth, I worked with (Liverpool’s) Gini Wijnaldum,” Claudio Braga said.

“But what I can say is for me – and it is difficult to say these things – is I think Todd is at the same level and maybe he can achieve more, because he has the talent.”

If Spurs do indeed get their hands on Todd Cantwell, then their fans can expect big things. That is, of course, if Norwich will even consider a sale.
