10 More Players Spurs are Scouting


10 More Players Spurs are Scouting


Following the last article about players Tottenham are watching, here is a list of 10 more players Spurs are scouting.

Liverpool's 23-year-old (24 in April) Belgium striker Divock Origi was a target for us before he joined Liverpool and it hasn't really worked out for him there.

He has 3 goals in 26 appearances for Belgian, is right-footed and can play on either wing as well as his usual centre-forward role. Origi has scored 1 goal and had 1 assist in the Premier League this season.

Under contract until 2020, he spent the 2017/18 season on loan at Wolfsburg and this season has only been given 87 minutes over 4 Premier League games and 11 minutes in the UEFA Champions League. He has also been given 1 FA Cup outing.

It is common knowledge that we are looking for homegrown players and that 22-year-old (23 in December) Hull City forward Jarrod Bowen, as well as 22-year-old (23 in November) Leicester City midfielder James Maddison, are on our radar.

Bowen has scored 15 goals and had 3 assists in 30 Championship games this season. Given that he has been playing on the right wing that is quite a return. 

The left-footer is under contract until 2020 and Hull have a one-year extension option.

Attacking midfielder Maddison has scored 5 goals and had 4 assists in his first season in the Premier League having played 23 times in the competition. He is under contract until 2023.

Ex-Sunderland striker Josh Maja was linked with us and we continue to watch his progress after his January move to Bordeaux in France. He has yet to represent the senior team.

Tottenham are one of several clubs taking a keen interest in 17-year-old (18 in April) left-footed left-back Luca Connell, who has just broken into the Bolton team.

The Irishman born in Liverpool can play further forward and is a good crosser of the ball. He looks to have a good future in the game. He is a Republic of Ireland U-18 international having previously played for the U-17 side. 

Southampton, Brighton and Burnley have made inquiries for him. He is out of contract in the summer and Bolton are in financial difficulties. 

Connell has played two Championship games recently against Reading and Sheffield United. We sent a scout to watch him against Reading (he played 72 minutes) and are following his progress closely. 

He already has one assist to his name from a pin-point cross in an FA Cup tie against Bristol City.

QPR's young forward Eberechi Eze is attracting a lot of interest. The 20-year-old (21 in June) attacking midfielder has represented England at U-20 level (2 caps).

He has 4 goals and 4 assists from 29 Championship games and is under contract until 2021.

21-year-old (22 in August) Pape Cheikh Diop is a central midfielder who learnt his game at Celta Vigo before he joined Lyon on 29 August 2017 for £8.76 million (€10m).

Born in Senegal, he has opted to represent Spain at international level and has played for their U-20 (10 caps) and U-21 (3 caps) sides.

He has played 375 minutes over 11 Ligue 1 games, 95 minutes over 4 Champions League games, 181 minutes over 2 League Cup games and 92 minutes over 2 French cup games.

His contract runs until 2022 and is a good passer with good vision. While being a box-to-box midfielder, he can also operate as a defensive midfielder, has pace and technical ability.

Tottenham made him an offer last summer but he chose the French side and we have continued to follow his progress.

Spurs are still keeping an eye on 24-year-old (25 in June) Danish international (he has 36 international caps, 5 goals) Yussuf Poulsen.

He is a centre-forward, but can play across the front three. He is under contract at RB Leipzig until 2021 after joining from Lyngby Boldklub (Danish 1st Division) on July 4th 2013.

This season he has 13 goals and 6 assists in 31 games, 10 of those goals and 3 assists coming in 20 Bundesliga games.

Both Tottenham and Manchester City are watching 22-year-old (23 in May) Sampdoria centre-back Joachim Andersen. The Danish U-21 (16 caps) international is under contract until 2022. He is highly regarded and is not a new name on our radar.

Sergej Milinković-Savić is a 23-year-old (24 later this month) Serbian international (10 caps) who plays for Lazio, having arrived from Belgian side Genk in 2015.

The central midfielder is under contract until 2023 and has scored 4 goals with 1 assist in 26 games.
