Spurs could find a new Carrick in Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff

Tottenham Hotspur has been mooted as a potential future destination for a rival midfielder this week…

What’s the word?

According to the Daily Mail, boyhood Newcastle United graduate Sean Longstaff has signed a deal with a super-agent, Pini Zahavi, and it’s expected that the Israeli veteran will look to move his new client on before his contract expires in 2022.

They claim that sources close to the situation say the 23-year-old workhorse could be offered to Spurs even if a fresh attempt to sign an extension is made in the next 12 months.

Zahavi is also the representative of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Champions League superstar, Robert Lewandowski.

Who would you rather have at Spurs in 2021?

More trouble for Winks?

Whilst it very much remains to be seen if the north London outfit hold any real interest in the Magpies midfielder, it would be an interesting move to consider, especially with Harry Winks’ immediate future up in the air.

The Telegraph’s Matt Law reported earlier today that the England international is set for crunch talks with Daniel Levy over his lack of game time under Jose Mourinho.

Winks himself has already expressed that the situation is “difficult” at Spurs ahead of the European Championships this summer.

Perhaps Longstaff is an ideal replacement later down the line.

Former Spurs midfielder Jamie Redknapp once compared the £15.75m-rated talent to another ex-Lilywhite in Michael Carrick, speaking on Sky Sports (via ChronicleLive), he said:

“He reminds me a little bit of Michael Carrick. He’s got that nice stance and the way he plays, always looking to pass the ball to a black and white shirt.

“He has got a nice pass from either foot. That’s a massive asset to have and he can score goals as well.

“He’s very down to earth. He looks like a bright kid, he’s got good pedigree.”

Who was the top scorer during the 2018/19 season?

Longstaff has previously been linked with a £50m move to Manchester United, so there’s a chance he won’t come cheap but Levy shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to replace a wantaway player with one compared to a former great.

The “ridiculous” maestro has even been lauded by Pep Guardiola and he certainly knows a player when he sees one.

AND in other news, Mourinho must unshackle his “extraordinary” genius after match-winning display…
