Former Celtic striker Chris Sutton suggested on The Monday Night Club show on BBC 5 live Sport on Monday evening (broadcast from 7pm, August 1, 2016) that Danny Drinkwater should join Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.

According to a recent report in The Sun, Tottenham are interested in signing Drinkwater from Premier League rivals Leicester City in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Spurs could launch a £20 million bid for the England international midfielder this summer.

Former Celtic and Chelsea striker Sutton has suggested that if the 26-year-old gets the chance to move to Spurs, then he should take it.

However, the Englishman believes that Premier League champions Leicester should try to get more than £20m for Drinkwater.

“If I was Drinkwater, I would go,” said Sutton on The Monday Night Club show on BBC 5 live Sport on Monday evening (broadcast from 7pm, August 1, 2016) when asked if Drinkwater should join Tottenham and if Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri should take £20m for him.

“Yes, I would, but I wouldn’t take £20m for him. No. I would take what I can. I would hold out. He is a Premier League winner.”

Drinkwater has been on the books of Leicester since 2012 and was a key player for the Foxes last season.

The English midfielder scored two goals and created 44 chances in 35 Premier League appearances for the Foxes during the 2015-16 campaign.

The former Manchester United prospect had a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 30%, and won 29 headers, 31 dribbles and 74 tackles.
