Tottenham Hotspur have ‘joined the race’ for Rangers gem Jack Wylie and are currently in discussions with the player’s camp, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Wylie impressing…
His performances at youth level for both Rangers and the Scotland Under-16s have attracted real attention from south of the border, where Premier League giants Leeds United, Man United and Arsenal are all eyeing a move.
Wylie is seen as a real prospect in Glasgow but isn’t eligible to sign as a professional until he turns 16 next year, raising fears that English sides could poach the youngster.
The Latest: Spurs join Wylie race…
According to recent reports, Spurs have now ‘joined the race’ for him as sporting director Fabio Paratici’s scouting team seemingly gets to work.
Football Insider claim the north Londoners are joined by Newcastle in registering their interest and Tottenham are even ‘in dialogue with the youngster’s camp’.
The Verdict: Make the move…
Adding another rising star to Tottenham’s impressive collection of exciting youngsters would be a shrewd move by Paratici and co.
Wylie is amassing quite the reputation in Scotland and has almost half of England’s top flight chasing him going by this latest report.
Indeed, if the teenager keeps developing his game at this rate, and Spurs manage to get him, it isn’t unreasonable to think he can battle his way into the first team in years to come.
