The Evening Standard have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to sign Manchester City forward Adedire Mebude.
Mebude has impressed for City’s development sides over recent years and the 18-year-old has started the new campaign on fire, with three goals in his first four games in Premier League 2 (Transfermarkt).
The Scotland Under-19 international primarily plays on the right but can also operate on the opposite flank.
The forward’s current contract runs until 2024 and The Evening Standard claim that he is now stalling on signing a new deal at the Etihad.
Tottenham are said to be one of the clubs who want to take advantage of the situation and snap up the player. The North Londoners are thought to be facing competition from Southampton and Newcastle United for Mebude.
The report claims that the City starlet is also on the radars of several clubs across the continent, including PSV Eindhoven and Club Brugge.

As we saw with Tottenham’s capture of Will Lankshear earlier this week, the North Londoners seem to be prioritising bringing the best young local talent into the academy. Mebude would be a big coup for the Lilywhites, given how highly the teenager appears to be thought off around Europe.
