Report: Tottenham are eyeing a double raid of Scottish club this summer

The Sun have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are considering making a move for Kilmarnock youngsters, David Watson and Ben Brannan.

Watson made his debut for Kilmarnock’s senior side earlier this season and has impressed in his four league appearances and two Scottish Cup appearances so far (Transfermarkt).

The Sun claim that the 18-year-old’s displays have caught Tottenham’s eye, with the North London club said to be keen on signing the attacking midfielder before other clubs enter the equation and make it a scramble.

It is alleged that the Lilywhites are keen to bring Watson to Hotspur Way to train as early as this week.

The report adds that Spurs also like Kilmarnock’s young right-back Ben Brannan, who has impressed for the club’s Under-18s this season.

In fact, The Sun state that the 16-year-old is already on trial at Spurs after the Scottish club granted permission for him to go to the Premier League side.

Brannan is yet to sign a professional contract with Kilmarnock, which means that the club will be due compensation should Tottenham wish to add the right-back to their academy ranks.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is likely that Andy Scoulding, who joined Tottenham as a scout last summer, would have alerted the club to the two Kilmarnock starlets.

Having spent five years as Ranger’s head of scouting, the 41-year-old would certainly be well aware of the best young talent coming through Scottish football at the moment.
