Tottenham to compete with Premier League duo for midfielder who will cost over £20m

By Saikat -

Tottenham are ready to battle Crystal Palace and Brentford for the services of Sunderland sensation Jobe Bellingham.

The teenage sensation came up the ranks at Birmingham before joining Sunderland last summer in a deal worth just £3 million. He had an exceptional debut season for the Championship club and on the back of it, multiple Premier League sides want to sign him.

According to Alan Nixon, Tottenham are keen on signing Bellingham but will face stiff competition from Brentford and Crystal Palace.

The Birmingham graduate was involved in 47 matches last season and contributed towards 8 goals (7 goals, 1 assist). His performances have put him on the radar of Palace and Brentford who have been closely monitoring him but Spurs are the ones who could put forward the most intriguing proposal for the 18-year-old starlet.

The North London club are looking to reinforce their midfield with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Giovani Lo Celso expected to be on the move. They need to add more quality to the centre of the park and believe signing Bellingham could be a great move given his versatility. Manager Ange Postecoglou is an admirer of the teenager and people at the club feel he could be a great addition for the long run.

He is likely to be a squad player in the initial years and Bellingham could provide cover to James Maddison. Given his potential, he could soon establish himself as a starter. They have identified him as a primary target and with Sunderland looking for a fee of more than £20 million, it will be interesting to see if Spurs end up meeting their demands.
