According to The Sun, the Spurs hierarchy want to turn young Sheffield United striker David Brooks into the new Harry Kane.
An article in the paper says we are negotiating with the Blades for the talented forward and hope to agree a deal worth about £10million plus extras.
Warrrington born Brooks, 20, has shown glimpses of his potential for Blades in an injury-hit campaign.
He has also played for the senior Welsh side after appearing for England as a kid.
The article says Spurs are convinced Brooks is a star in the making and want to develop him as a long-term replacement for Kane.
The article goes on to say the club’s scouts have looked at other top prospects in his age group but have decided to go for Brooks.
United boss Chris Wilder has used whizkid Brooks sparingly and will not want to lose him, however the article adds that it will be hard to stand in the way of such a move, with United’s best hope being a loan return.
The article goes on to say that Spurs are eyeing Stevenage centre-half Ben Wilmot — though they face a battle with arch rivals Arsenal for his signature witybGunners scout Pat Holland — who ironically used to be the head man at Tottenham’s youth level — watching Wilmot, 18, in action last week.
