Tottenham are considering a move for the Nottingham Forest winger Callum Hudson-Odoi. The 23-year-old was offered to them last summer when he was surplus to requirement at Chelsea only for Spurs look elsewhere. They ended up signing Brennan Johnson from Forest on deadline day for £47m, with Forest taking Hudson-Odoi for a cut-price £3m.

Spurs’ opinion towards Hudson-Odoi has changed after a fine season at Forest and they have him on their wishlist for what is expected to be a busy summer. The one-time jewel of the Chelsea academy finished as Forest’s second-top scorer with eight goals – all of them in the Premier League. Were Forest to be tempted to sell, they could expect to make a hefty profit.

It is no secret the Spurs manager, Ange Postecoglou, wants to strengthen his attacking options, having seen them stretched by injury over this past season when the club did not play in Europe. Their schedule will be swelled next time out by a Europa League campaign after the fifth-placed finish in the league.

Postecoglou lost another winger signed last summer – Manor Solomon – to a season-ending injury in September. He counted on the captain, Son Heung-min, Johnson, Dejan Kulusevski and the January loanee Timo Werner in wide areas. Richarlison, nominally a No 9, also played out there. Spurs have yet to decide whether to take up the £15m option to make Werner’s move from RB Leipzig permanent.
