JARROD BOWEN’S dream move to Tottenham could be scuppered if they cannot flog Vincent Janssen and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.
The pair have flopped at White Hart Lane and have no future at the club under Mauricio Pochettino.
The Dutch striker moved to Spurs two years ago from AZ Alkmaar for £17million and after a loan stint with Fenerbahce last term has not featured at all this season.
Janssen has been linked with a move to Celtic, but Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers is set to look elsewhere to beef up his attack.
Nkoudou, 23, was a £9m addition from Marseille two years ago has made just 24 appearances and failed to impress on loan at Burnley earlier this year.
But they will both need to be moved on in order to make way for the Hull winger who is regarded as one of the hottest properties outside the Premier League.
Bowen, 22 was the subject of strong interest from Everton in the summer.
But the Toffees failed to form up their interest leaving the Londoner’s in pole position for his signature.
The forward hit 15 goals last term and already has bagged 10 before the turn of the year including a brace in the 2-0 win at Leeds United on Saturday.
Six goals and two assists in December looks to have convinced Pochettino and his staff Bowen is ready to make the step up to the top flight.
Spurs have extensively scouted Bowen in recent months and are could firm up their interest with a £12million bid during next month’s window.
But Tigers boss Nigel Adkins is keen to hold on to his star man and reckons the Championship side are not under pressure to sell.
After the Leeds win, Adkins said: “We’re not looking to sell. The owners have said we don’t need to. However, we all know what football can be like.
“Jarrod has scored 15 last season, he’s got 10 this season. He’s a young English player who’s exciting and has got flair. Who knows what will happen?
“I’m sure his representatives would love to have him touted around everywhere, that’s football. But I’m really pleased that he’s working hard for the team.”
