Tottenham supporters have been somewhat frustrated in the Transfer Tavern in the last few days after seeing their team concede a late leveller to end up drawing 2-2 away at League One side Rochdale in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men went into their clash with the third tier’s bottom club off the back of coming from two-goals down to draw 2-2 with European giants Juventus in midweek, thus making them favourites for progression to the last eight of the Champions League when they meet for the return leg in a fortnight’s time. Yet the North London outfit have a battle on their hands making the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after a 93rd minute Steve Davis strike secured Rochdale a deserved replay on Sunday, thus earning them a trip to Wembley next week.
Thus, there have been several frustrated Spurs fans in the Tavern in recent times, many of whom are likely to be interested by a recent report from ESPN, which suggests that wonderkid Reo Griffiths’ future at the club is in doubt amid interest from RB Leipzig.
The 17-year-old forward has been in sensational form for the club’s Under-18 side this season with 14 goals in just 14 league games, helping Scott Parker’s team to seventh place in the Under-18 Premier League South table.
And with a few appearances in Premier League 2, the Englishman is clearly proving his worth and making his way up the ranks at the North London club, yet reports suggest that his future at the club is in doubt as RB Leipzig are reportedly monitoring his progress.
Thus, Pochettino’s men could well face a fight to keep hold of the wonderkid in the upcoming summer transfer windows.
Landlord’s verdict: With 14 goals in just 14 games for the Under-18 side this term, Tottenham’s Reo Griffiths looks set for a huge future in the game.
Yet that potential may not be fulfilled at Spurs as reports suggest that Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig are monitoring the 17-year-old’s progress, what with their head of recruitment Paul Mitchell formerly of Tottenham and likely to know exactly how good the forward is.
Thus, Spurs could well face a fight to keep hold of the striking wonderkid in the near future.
Tottenham fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
