Tottenham prepared to make £30m move to sign 21-year-old midfielder

Tottenham are set to make a £30m move to sign Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook this summer, based on reports coming from The Express.

Spurs have been linked with several midfielders, despite the fact the club is yet to secure any new faces with only a week left before the closing of the transfer window.

Cook has risen to prominence since joining Eddie Howe’s side on the south coast, and was tipped by many to make Gareth Southgate’s final 23 for the World Cup in Russia following a season ending injury to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The reported interest from Spurs holds an air of panic from a club who are yet to make a single signing in the 2018 summer transfer window, despite manager Mauricio Pochettino signing a new five year contract in May and reportedly being promised in the region of £150m for transfer expenditure.

Cook would add unquestionably quality to Tottenham’s squad, though whether he is capable of displacing the likes of Moussa Dembele, Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier as Pochettino’s preferred midfield options remains to be seen.
