In the past, Tottenham have been linked with signing Stewart Downing from Middlesbrough. However, it now appears that they’re after his understudy at the Riverside Stadium. Daily The Daily Mail report that Adam Johnson could become Juande Ramos’ first signing .

The Mail said:

Spurs’ fans have been wanting the club to buy a left winger in recent seasons and it looks like the 20-year-old will finally fill the void at the Lane.

Johnson impressed while on a three-month loan at Watford earlier this season and Tottenham are convinced Middlesbrough will be prepared to sell so they can spend the money to strengthen other positions.

It remains to be seen whether Gareth Southgate will be keen to let one of the club’s most exciting talents to leave at this stage of his career. The winger was one of the main reasons behind Watford’s good start to the season after scoring five goals.

More importantly, how many people reckon the first thing Juande Ramos said when he arrived was “GET ME ADAM JOHNSON”?
