The frustrated Tottenham winger is reportedly the subject of interest from West Ham.
Townsend is currently out of favour at White Hart Lane and the People suggest the north London side had previously rated him at £13m.
Indeed, it certainly seems to be last-chance saloon territory for Townsend at Tottenham.
And the 24-year-old would be lucky to land a club like West Ham if they are genuinely interested.
Do West Ham need Townsend? It's very unlikely he'll succeed there but they do lack width. And they probably need him more than Tottenham do right now, hence the wide man's frustrations at his lack of playing time.
