The 25-year-old is being linked with a move to the north London club, with Spanish outlet Fichajes claiming that he is a player that they have on their shortlist.
Would you take Watkins at Spurs?
It makes it no surprise that a side like Tottenham have been linked with him. However, Palmer believes Spurs will find it difficult to strike a deal with Villa.
“They won’t get him out of there. They won’t get him out of there,” the ex-Leeds United and Southampton player said to TIF.
“Everybody’s got a figure. But the problem that they’ve got now is if Harry Kane is going to go for 120 million, everybody knows that they’ve got 120 million to spend.”
If Kane does eventually move on after failing to secure that transfer to Manchester City during the summer, then perhaps Watkins is a striker Tottenham have a serious look at.
Villa, though, will be under no pressure to sell, with the England international’s contract not up until 2025.
