Tottenham Hotspur and Mauricio Pochettino have always been ones to invest and put faith in young talent, with the likes of Harry Winks, Oliver Skipp, Kyle Walker-Peters, Luke Amos, and more coming through the academy in recent years.
However, it has been a while since a young striker has come through the ranks at Spurs, with Harry Kane being the last notable one.
According to L’Equipe, Spurs may now be looking outside of the academy for a teenage strike sensation, as they are interested in young Haissem Hassan.
The 17-year-old striker plays for Chateauroux, and although he has only made two appearances for the French second tier side this season, he has apparently caught the eye of two English and two Spanish sides.
L’Equipe names Tottenham as one of the interested parties, with Hassan reportedly worth £1.7m.
The report also claims that the club have received an offer for the player already, however it is unclear who has bid. Could it be Spurs?
Spurs Web Opinion:
While Hassan doesn’t sound like a player who could influence Tottenham next season, or perhaps even the season after that, I see nothing wrong in investing small fees in teenage talent. Either he flourishes into a star, or Spurs sell him on at a later date. If the scouts are impressed with Hassan, then they should put in a bid.
