Arsenal and Tottenham are reportedly ready to renew their interest in Ipswich Town youngster Andre Dozzell, who has recovered from a long injury layoff.

According to The Mirror, Andre Dozzell’s return to fitness has alerted Arsenal and Tottenham. The Ipswich Town youngster was sidelined with a long-term cruciate knee ligament injury. But, he has recovered, which might see Arsenal and Tottenham renew their interest in the midfielder.

Andre Dozzell has a special connection with Tottenham. The Ipswich Town youngster is the son of Jason Dozzell, a former Spurs star. The latter, also a midfielder by trade, represented Tottenham 84 times and retired in 2002 without ever earning a senior England cap.

His son though, created a lot of buzz in his services and potential when he first burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old. Unlike his father though, young Andre was tipped to become a senior England pro in time, having captained the Under-17 side while being a part of the Under-19 side that won the Under-19 Euros in 2017.

Andre equalled dad’s record of scoring on his senior debut. But, tragedy struck in his sophomore season as he was hit with a cruciate knee ligament injury. 13 months have since passed, with the 19-year-old finally making another appearance as he came on to play 14 minutes in a loss against Middlesbrough. Arsenal and Tottenham, who were admirers before the long-term injury, might renew their interest.
