As Tottenham Hotspur prepare for the departure of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, they seem to have turned to Aston Villa’s Douglas Lewis as their preferred target.

The Spurs midfield core has been linked with a move away this summer. Atletico Madrid and others have been linked with a move for the midfielder. The loss of the iron man and midfield stalwart would be devastating for Spurs. Even with the likes of Oliver Skipp, Yves Bissouma, and Rodrigo Bentancur, losing him would be devastating.

In preparation for the transfer, they are looking to strengthen their midfield. James Ward-Prowse is on the radar. Ward-Prowse is a Southampton Saints youth player and captain. He came through the youth ranks in 2003 and has been with Southampton since making his professional debut in 2012. He hasn’t had a loan spell with any other team and has only played for Southampton.

After earning a spot on the England national team and becoming one of the best kickers in the English Premier League (EPL), he was approached by numerous teams, but Ward-Prowse remained loyal. After the end of last season, things changed. Southampton couldn’t overcome a serious slump. They changed managers several times and were relegated. As a result, Ward-Prowse was looking for a move. 꽁머니지급

West Ham United was the favorite, but Tottenham tried to hijack the deal. Despite Tottenham’s efforts, the move to West Ham was finalized. “West Ham are looking to finalize a move for Southampton midfielder Ward-Prowse,” David Onstead of The Athletic reported on Monday (Sept. 9).

If Ward-Prowse goes to West Ham, the Hammers are looking to bring in Luiz. The Brazilian international, formerly of Manchester City, has been with Villa since 2019. He was linked with a move to Arsenal, but stayed at Villa and continued to play in the core of the midfield. He is a three-way midfielder and has very good build-up play. He would be a great addition to Tottenham’s midfield.

The British ‘Football Insider’ said on the 8th, “Tottenham are ready to sign Lewis. In addition to Lewis, Unai Emery also has John McGinn, N’Golo Kemara, Yuri Tillemans and Jacob Ramsey at his disposal. Lewis signed for Villa last summer and is under contract until June 2026.”
