Can Tottenham and West Ham now move for Daniel Wass following Evian’s relegation

Tottenham Huddle

West Ham and Tottenham have been linked with Evian’s Daniel Wass.

As reported by BT.dk a few months ago, Spurs and West Ham have been long-term admirers of Wass, a 25-year-old winger currently playing for Evian in Ligue 1.

A Danish international, the Premier League duo have been keen on signing him since the January transfer window, and are set to revive that interest this summer.

Whilst no deal could be agreed in the last transfer window, it appears as if West Ham and Spurs have the ball in their court this summer, with Wass now openly available - with Evian being relegated to Ligue 2 at the weekend.

Four successive defeats have seen Evian lose their status as a top flight outfit, meaning that Wass is open on the market, and could be a budget signing if his currently club are pushed to sell him.

Although Evian's form this campaign has been well below par, Wass has enjoyed a solid campaign. Playing both in defence and in a wide attacking position, Wass has made 32 appearances in the league, scoring eight goals and registering five assists.

He has 1.5 shots per game, plays 1.2 key passes per game and plays on average 31 passes every match.

His defensive work is also impressive, completing more than one tackle, interception and clearance per game.

Wass has long been scouted by the Premier League duo, and now could be the perfect time for Spurs or West Ham to swoop in and sign him up, with a budget deal likely following Evian’s unfortunate relegation.
