Fabrizio Romano drops James Ward-Prowse update

The well renowned football journalist was speaking on YouTube with Chris Cowlin and responded when asked about the 27-year-old Southampton midfielder’s future:

“No update on him (joining Spurs). West Ham are tracking him though.”

Ward-Prowse would be a brilliant signing for any club in the Premier League and especially for either West Ham or Tottenham.

The 10-capped England international is a sensational footballer and has been dubbed as the best set-piece taker in world football by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

The central midfielder possesses exceptional technique, is a magnificent passer of the football and has a very impressive engine.

The 27-year-old is truly incredible from dead-ball situations as well. His free-kick and corner taking technique has been described as ‘unreal’ (Give Me Sport).

Considering how much emphasis David Moyes places on set-pieces, it’s easy to see why signing Ward-Prowse would be very high up on the Scot’s priority list.

A move to the Hammers or Spurs would surely appeal to the Saints ace this summer.

Whether West Ham or Tottenham will be prepared to pay anywhere near the £75 million that Southampton are demanding for James Ward-Prowse is highly doubtful, however.
