Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Todd Cantwell in recent months.

Back in March, The Independent reported that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was interested in the Norwich City star, while The Daily Mail  claimed the same of Spurs.

It was a few months ago, of course, but if the interest was true then, it’ll definitely be true now after the 22-year-old midfielder scored against Manchester United on Saturday.

The Red Devils moved into the semi-final of the FA Cup by beating the Canaries at Carrow Road, but Cantwell equalised for the hosts with 15 minutes to go.



You can see why Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly interested in him, for he’s a major prospect.

Here’s what former City hitman Chris Sutton said on BBC Radio 5 Live about him: “I think eventually he’ll play [for a] top-six club. I think he’s got more developing to do so he can become a more rounded player, but I think he’s an exceptional, exceptional player.”

If it’s a race between Klopp and Jose Mourinho, Tottenham should prepare for disappointment.

Not only because Liverpool – crowned Premier League champions this week – have a more exciting future, but because the Reds have much more money available to them.

The North Londoners took out a £175 million loan from the Bank of England earlier this month, and they’re just not going to be able to rival the Anfield club for transfers.
