The Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern have been watching the development of Reo Griffiths with a keen eye this season, and so far they have been mightily impressed with what they’ve seen.
Harry Kane’s brilliance at the spearhead of Tottenham’s attack has left little need for a back-up striker in recent years as the likes of Vincent Janssen and Fernando Llorente have struggled to play the role of his understudy.
However, Tottenham could solve their back-up striker problem by boosting Reo Griffiths to the first-team next season, providing he signs a senior contract with the club.
According to The London Evening standard, Tottenham have offered a contract to the youngster in reward for his excellent form this season which has seen him notch a staggering 27 goals from 20 appearances in the U18 Premier League.
With a record as eye-catching as that, it’s no surprise the supporters are excited by the prospect of seeing him in the first-team next season, and naturally they are hoping he will commit his future to the club despite rumoured interest from the Bundesliga.
And the news arrives on a day when the club have already confirmed that Harry Winks and Cameron Carter-Vickers have put pen to paper on new deals, so the supporters will be pleased to see the Tottenham hierarchy are laying the foundations for a successful future.
Here’s what the Tottenham fans have had to say about the latest news regarding Griffiths’ future on Twitter…
Reo Griffiths he’s one or our own !

If true then great news. He has had an exceptional season. But one step at a time as would like to see his performance level with the U23's before anything else.

Fantastic, chuck him in the main squad. Sell Llorente. Buy Bale.
