Ward-Prowse is widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s premier number 8s. His ability from dead ball situations is a sight to behold and there are not many players who come close to him in this regard.

With an impressive record of 17 direct free-kick goals in his Premier League career, he stands only one goal away from matching the legendary David Beckham. Ward-Prowse’s dead-ball precision and long-range shooting prowess make him an invaluable asset.

Tottenham have already made a significant addition to their squad this summer by securing the talents of James Maddison for a reported fee of £40 million. Maddison, known for his attacking flair during his tenure at Leicester City, could potentially be deployed as a number 8.

However, the ultimate decision lies with James Ward-Prowse himself. If he seeks regular playing time, the allure of West Ham or Aston Villa, who can offer more guaranteed minutes on the pitch, may be enticing to him.
