The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are glad that their side has placed a strong focus on the future of the club…
Whilst emphasising the present, Tottenham have been sure to recruit well in recent years, both in terms of quality and potential. Big players like Dele Alli and Eric Dier have moved to London as young professionals, only to hone their craft at the club.
Not only does this keep costs down, but it also allows the club to plan ahead – with both players able to play on at the top for the best part of a decade if Tottenham hang on to them.
It’s become a theme of their transfer policy as of late, and it’s a tactic that is reportedly leading to them keeping an eye on a very talented young forward. Currently playing for SM Caen, Elye Wahi is the player in question according to Le Parisien, with the attacker drawing attention after scoring 89 goals last season.
Significantly, he is just 14-years-old, and so he’s unlikely to make it onto our TVs for quite a while yet, but Tottenham are already looking to the future by keeping an eye on him.
He can’t be signed for a few years yet, but that won’t stop them from scouting him – and last season he looked very good indeed. Anything can happen as teenagers grow older, but the signs are all there that he will become a top player
Tottenham has been a fantastic hub for young talent to hone their craft lately, and so a move to White Hart Lane could be attractive.
That said, there are a host of clubs reportedly keen on him, and so a move won’t be easy.
There is no rush to sign him, of course, so Pochettino won’t be worried about losing him just yet.
