Why Tottenham Hotspur should make a move for Sheffield United's Che Adams

Tottenham Hotspur have already seen the damage Sheffield United's Che Adams can do, as the striker scored twice against them in the Capital One Cup last season.

After the success of Dele Alli, Tottenham Hotspur should look to the Football League again to provide them with future first-team talent.

Alli arrived at Spurs from Milton Keynes Dons in the summer transfer window, and he has made a huge impact at White Hart Lane.

The central-midfielder has gone straight into Spurs' starting line-up, and earned international recognition for his excellent form.

The 19-year-old made his England debut against Estonia last Friday, and he seems to be going from strength to strength after being exposed to top-level football. 

Mauricio Pochettino has developed an ethos at Spurs, which is making them one of the best clubs in the country for youngsters to develop at. 

And, with Spurs seemingly intent on aiding young talent to progress, there is already a player who should be on their radar.

Sheffield United's Che Adams has been in excellent form in League One this season, and he appears to have everything required to play in the Premier League in the future.

Adams is rapid, clinical and skilful and, although he was playing in the non-league less than 12 months ago, he is already one of the Blades' key players. 

Adams has scored five times in his first 11 matches this season, and he is quickly forging a reputation as one of the finest talents outside the Premier League. 

Spurs are in need of a striker, with Harry Kane the only recognised number nine in their current team, and they would be wise to bring in Adams. 

Although the former Ilkestone man may not be ready to play as prominent a role as they have given Alli, he could push Kane for a starting place and provide cover for the front-man in cup competitions.  

Kane has been handed a lot of responsibility this term, and it seems that he needs another teammate who can help to take the goalscoring burden off of him.

Tottenham have actually had first-hand experience of the damage that Adams can do, as he scored twice against them in the Capital One Cup semi-final last season. 

The England under-20 international has recently signed a new contract extension at Sheffield United, and there are no signs that he wants to leave, but the opportunity to join Spurs would likely be too good for him to turn down - meaning that he should be a target on Pochettino's wishlist in the January transfer window.
