Tottenham hero Teddy Sheringham says they should move for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice.

Sheringham says the club need to match the ambitions of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son by signing world class players to play around them.

Sheringham told The Sun ahead of a Masters football event in association with Bookmakers.com: "West Ham supporters wouldn't like it but Declan Rice would be ideal for Tottenham.

"Tottenham have got to go to the next level to keep players like Son and Kane happy. You can't be signing average players.

"If you want to go to the next level as a football club you've got to be signing the likes of Declan Rice.

"I think he's awesome. I think he's the best midfield player in the world at the moment. He's up there with the best players in the world."

Sheringham says Rice has the X factor. The 23-year-old captain "can do everything".

He continued: "I think he can do everything; he can pass the ball, he can win the ball, he can run with the ball - as a midfield player he has everything to be sensational.

"He has already been sensational in his career and I think he can go on to be even better."
