why would he wish to go from a side in the top half of the Premiership to one in the bottom half?
They are not suggesting he would. Presumably just gossip, unlikely unless Harry Kant leaves in January, but if Villa got an offer they couldn't refuse, he'd be off. And I imagine Spuds would increase his wages considerably.

It’s been chewed over before probably but would we pick up anything on such a deal?

This is Daniel Levy you are talking about ! Ollie is already is reportedly on just over £70k pw (£3.7million pa!) and playing for a manager who really rates him. Spurs are in turmoil with the potential of a manager change on the horizon, seems to be a move that could be fraught with danger. It is only a rumour coming from Spain of all places. Don't think that there is much to see here, even if there would be a 15% slice of any transfer fee profit destined for our bank account !

Indeed. This is one bit of 'gossip' which is so unsurprising that its diametric opposite would be more surprising...

Kane has asked for a transfer and wants/may well leave. Just in case he does Spurs ought to complile a list of potential replacements to have a think about. That list obviously should include Watkins as a premiership and international centre forward familiar with playing in a 'one up front' pressing role. Just because Spurs write his name on such a list doesn't mean a transfer will happen...but it would be crazy if Spurs a) didn't have such a list or b) if Watkins wasn't on it.

As much as it pains me to say it Spurs are the bigger team who have had far greater success than Villa in recent years, Ollie is likely to give any interest from Tottenham serious consideration.
