Tottenham should make every effort to sign Jesse Lingard from Manchester United this winter.

That is according to club legend Clive Allen, who believes Lingard can find his best form in a Spurs shirt.

He also stated that star striker Harry Kane would benefit from having someone with Lingard's intelligence and ability to move into the right spaces during counter attacks.

Allen told talkSPORT: "When he came to West Ham he was outstanding, when he spent some time in east London.

"He is a talented player and at the moment Spurs are looking for an injection. One, they need some creativity in that midfield area.

"Harry Kane is looking a little frustrated at the lack of opportunities created for him.

"Someone of Lingard's quality would be a fabulous addition."
