Spurs chasing 17 year-old German sensation

According to an article in The Daily Mail, Spurs have joined the growing number of clubs to have checked on Hamburg striker Jann-Fiete Arp.

The article says how the teenager, who has been prolific for Germany Under 17s – he scored seven goals in the European Championships and five in the World Cup – has broken into Hamburg’s first team and scored twice in three appearances.

However it does say Juventus, Chelsea and Arsenal have already had scouts watch him this season and now the powers that be at Spurs have taken notice of the 17-year-old’s progress too.

The youngster scored to help Hamburg beat Stuttgart 3-1 last weekend, following on from his consolation strike in their defeat by Hertha Berlin the previous week, which the article says in turn made him the club’s youngest ever goalscorer.
‘I have a huge chance here and I’m really happy to be an integral part of the Bundesliga squad,’ said Arp.
‘The hype is honestly a bit scary to me. At the moment, I just want to focus on football.’

It adds how Arp has pinpointed Harry Kane as his role model and has similarities in style with the Tottenham and England centre forward.
It concludes by saying Arp is under contract until 2019 but with Hamburg lying just above the relegation zone in the Bundesliga, the club is braced for others taking a keen interest in their latest academy star.
