In a recent interview with Football Insider, former Leeds United and Manchester City defender, and BBC Pundit, Danny Mills was full of praise for Callum Wilson and urged Tottenham Hotspur to sign the English striker when he said, “Would the likes of Tottenham not be interested? He’d be an addition (rather than backup).
“He could play alongside Harry Kane, he’s a very, very good player. If I was Tottenham I would be looking at him and thinking: ‘What am I going to get for my money? Actually yes. Is he better than what we’ve got in terms of secondary? Yes.’
“Is he going to want to go there and be second fiddle? Champions League football might encourage him, new stadium – all these types of things. He might just think: ‘Yeah, you know what? I’ll give that a go and if I get a chance, I’ll take it.’ The manager, Pochettino, if you do well will leave you in.
“I think Tottenham would be a good fit for him. He’d have to prove himself to get in the side week in, week out but it’s certainly something he would want to be chasing.”
Wilson’s Brilliant Rise In English Football
Wilson worked his way up the youth ranks of Coventry before going on to play on loan for teams such as Kettering Town and Tamworth. The Cherries brought him to the Vitality Stadium in the summer of 2014 with the hope that he can break into their first-team. The English striker did precisely that as he started getting regular starts in Eddie Howe’s senior team.
The 27-year-old had experienced a fruitful campaign in the Premier League last season as he put in many goal-scoring displays for Bournemouth. The English frontman was amongst the top goal-scorers in the English top-flight in the previous campaign. The Coventry born prospect had made 33 appearances for Howe’s team, finding the back of the net 15 times while creating ten assists across all competitions.
What Will The English Striker Bring To The New White Hart Lane?
Wilson has a lot of pace under his belt and can make some dangerous runs behind the opposition backline. He has also found his goal-scoring touch after he finished with a tally of 14 goals in the Premier League last season. The Cherries starlet is also a class act at linking up play with others around him as evidenced by his tally of ten assists for Bournemouth in the recently concluded English top-flight season.
A striker of Wilson’s attacking prowess will undoubtedly bolster Mauricio Pochettino’s squad at the new White Hart Lane. The English frontman will not only be a perfect back-up for Harry Kane but will also possess the necessary skill set to compete with Kane for a place in Pochettino’s first-team or Gareth Southgate’s England team.
Will Wilson Be An Ideal Replacement For Llorente?
Wilson will not only be a suitable replacement for Fernando Llorente, but one can argue that he might be an upgrade over the Spaniard due to the fact that he is a potent goal-threat. Thus, the Spurs boss should take Danny Mills’ advice and bring Wilson to North London this summer as he could be the final piece in his Tottenham jigsaw who could come in and help them finally win some silverware in the coming years.
