Tottenham are reportedly pursuing a move to sign Jack Harrison from Leeds after a conspicuous couple of seasons in the Premier League. A player Patrick Vieira called “really talented” earlier this season.
Harrison, 25, has been overshadowed by Brazil international Raphinha at Leeds since the ex-Rennes star joined Leeds in the summer of 2020. He is expected to leave in the coming months for a fee in excess of £60million.
Harrison could go too. He has scored 22 goals in his 63 Premier League appearances since Leeds were promoted – scoring 13 and creating nine. Harrison cost Leeds £11m last summer (BBC) of Manchester City.
The telegraph report that Tottenham are considering a move for Harrison. Earlier this season, Crystal Palace boss and Arsenal legend Vieira was full of praise for a player he previously mentored as gaffer in New York City.
“He’s a really talented young player who just needed to find the right place to play and challenge himself because his work ethic is among the best in football.” Viira said in January, according to Football London.
Tottenham eye Harrison: Leeds would lose a crucial component
As mentioned, Harrison is a bit underrated at Leeds. Not only does he shoot and set up goals, but the winger’s work output – as Vieira notes – is second to none. His stamina, in turn, has attracted Conte and Spurs.
Tottenham will likely want him for his hardworking nature, his ability to likely play at left-back and mark for Son Heung-min. For Leeds to sell Harrison it would have to be a £20million offer.
