With many current Spurs players linked with a move away from the club this summer, including a number of central players, Tottenham would be wise to bolster their midfield options.

According to talkSPORT, the club have been particularly interested in Leicester City's Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, who helped the EFL Championship side earn promotion to compete in England's top flight next season.

Now, sports broadcaster Ben Jacobs, who recently spoke with GiveMeSport, has added that Dewsbury-Hall's current club may be forced to sell the 25-year-old before the end of June.

"I don't think the Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall links have overshadowed Leicester's promotion. It's a fantastic achievement. And it was important for Leicester to come up the first time of asking, but we know now that they fall under the jurisdiction of the Premier League, and they could be in a difficult financial position," the broadcaster stated.

"Leicester are going to have to sell despite coming up to the Premier League, and they might have to still sell relatively fast," Jacobs affirmed.

He added, "Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall - a pure-profit player as it's known - is maybe somebody that the club feel at the right number they have to sacrifice even though the player has said publicly that he's got no intention of leaving."

The English footballer, who came up in the Foxes' academy and has notched 129 appearances for his current club, would likely be a harsh loss for Leicester (Transfermarkt). Just this past season, Dewsbury-Hall managed to contribute 26 goal involvements (Transfermarkt).

Nevertheless, if Jacobs' analysis is accurate, then it should serve as even greater reason for Spurs and Technical Director Johan Lange to go after the English talent before another club can scoop him up.
