According to Football Insider journalist Wayne Veysey, Tottenham Hotspur are in a race with Leicester City to sign non-league striker sensation Fin Barker.
The Lowdown: Rising star…
The 18-year-old has apparently caught the eye of top tier scouts up and down the country for his sensational form at current club Mickleover FC in the Northern Premier League Premier Division.
Both Premier League and clubs from the EFL are able to sign anyone from outside the professional leagues at any time of year, even beyond a conventional transfer window.
The Latest: Tottenham plotting move…
According to Veysey and Football Insider, Spurs and Leicester are now ‘plotting moves’ ahead of the summer for Barker.
As well as this, both sides are tipped as possible favourites to sign the prolific striker given they can apparently make an offer ‘beyond the level’ of most Premier League sides.
The Verdict: Intriguing update…
It appears Spurs’ scouts are hard at work behind-the-scenes again as they unearth more potentially fruitful talent for the growing Hotspur Way group of exciting youngsters.
Barker could certainly come as one of them if Tottenham sign him outside of January, especially going by his 18-goal haul for Mickleover this season.
Those strikes come after only just making his debut in October, perhaps evidence of his sky high potential.
