Tottenham: Spurs leading the race for Oscar Gloukh

Tottenham: Spurs leading the race for Oscar Gloukh -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur believe that they are leading the race to sign Maccabi Tel Aviv wonderkid Oscar Gloukh, according to The Mirror (via The Spurs Web).

The Lowdown: Gloukh in profile

The Israel under-21 international was promoted to Maccabi Tel Aviv’s first team in April and has since gone on to play eight games in Ligat ha’Al (Championship round), scoring three goals as an attacking midfielder.

The 18-year-old was a vital component in Israel’s superb run to the final of the European Under-19 Championship earlier this summer. Gloukh scored three goals in the tournament, including one in the final against England.

The Latest: Spurs interested in Gloukh

According to a report by The Mirror (10/7, p74, via The Spurs Web), Spurs believe that they are in the lead in the race to sign Gloukh this summer.

The report stated that the midfielder is valued at £10m and is wanted by the likes of Ajax, Borussia Dortmund, Rangers and AS Roma, but Tottenham have already made early contact over a possible transfer.

The Verdict: Huge talent

Hailed as a ‘special’ player by former Israel international Gil Vermouth, Gloukh has been likened to former Premier League star Yossi Benayoun, who played for West Ham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, making 194 appearances in the English top flight.

With some big-money arrivals at Hotspur Way this summer, it is promising to see Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici keeping an eye on youth talent, with the club clearly preparing for the longer-term in addition to the here-and-now.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

Therefore, if Gloukh is as good as his widespread transfer interest suggests, then this could be a great swoop for the north London club.
