Paratici masterclass: Spurs could find Nuno's next Traore in £27m-rated "world-beater" - opinion

Tottenham Hotspur have been mooted with interest in Jarrod Bowen this week…

What’s the word?

According to the Independent’s Melissa Reddy, the north Londoners are one of several Premier League teams scouting the West Ham attacker extensively, with Liverpool and Leicester City also mentioned.

The 24-year-old winger joined the Irons in a £20m-plus move back in January 2020 and has been a standout performer for David Moyes ever since, so it’s no wonder some of the bigger teams are taking a keen eye on potentially swooping for him in the future.

It still very much remains to be seen how much Bowen would command in the current market, although he is valued at £27m by Transfermarkt, having signed a £60k-per-week deal at the London Stadium.

Paratici masterclass

Interest in the versatile dynamo should hardly come as a surprise given his recent form, even during their defeat to Manchester United at the weekend, he stood out amongst his peers, creating four key chances and being a tireless presence out of position up top.

Not only would he meet the homegrown quota but he could also meet one of Nuno Santo’s previous desires – if reports are to be believed.

During the summer window, the Telegraph’s Matt Law claimed that the Portuguese was keen to convert Spurs’ system to a two-man attack and that he wanted to find a Premier League experienced player to play alongside Harry Kane.

That did not come to fruition, which may have left the Spurs boss rather frustrated, especially given their struggles in front of goal this term. They haven’t scored in their last two league outings and before then, they won three games by a 1-0 scoreline.

Bowen isn’t an out-and-out striker but he fits the mould of what Nuno likes – think of Adama Traore at Wolves as he often was deployed up top, more so in the absence of Raul Jimenez.

Just like the former Hull City hotshot when Michail Antonio is out of the side.

The uncapped Englishman has delivered nine goals and 11 assists in 59 appearances for the Hammers, contributing once every 200 minutes, via Transfermarkt.

Whilst he’s only been able to provide one assist so far in 2021/22, Bowen tops the charts for creativity, averaging 2.4 key passes per game, which is better than every single member of Spurs’ current squad, which suggests he could well fix another issue in N17.

It’s no wonder he was once lauded as “unplayable” by his former Tigers head coach Grant McCann, whilst talkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan once described him as a “world-beater.”

In Bowen, Paratici could well deliver an absolute masterclass of a signing. He can help fix their creative issues, be the perfect foil for Kane and be a Traore-like presence up top for Nuno.

If a deal can be done, then Spurs must sanction it.

AND in other news, Nuno set for Spurs boost as major Hotspur Way development emerges, fans surely buzzing…
