Tottenham Hotspur have their own tricky winger at the centre of an international battle.

Tottenham Hotspur have a teenage winger who is causing an international tug-of-war.

The Telegraph report Keanen Bennetts is being fought over by both England and Germany, with Nigeria staking a claim too.

Lewis is only 15-years-old, yet the historic rivals are already eyeing him up such is his precocious talent.

The teenager was born in England but has represented Germany at under-16 level due to his mother hailing from the country.

England are however making overtures to attempt to sway him, and living and playing in the country could help their case.

His story echoes Adnan Januzaj's big decision, who was linked with playing for Belgium, Kosovo and even England before opting for Marc Wilmots' Red Devils and being part of their World Cup squad.

The Manchester United starlet is rated as one of Europe's finest young talents, and it was little wonder he was fought over.

The fact the FA are considering their options with regard to Bennetts shows he is a player with outstanding potential, and the Three Lions would be humiliated to lose him.

Given the fact he was born in and plays in the country, seeing him choose Germany at senior level could be a serious blow if he goes onto become a top star.

That's a long way off, and Bennetts has time to make his decision. It may come down to who shows they want him more, and even Tottenham treating him well, and managing to hold onto him, and not allowing him to be tempted away to a German side.

It will ultimately depend on whether Bennetts prefers the dream of playing with the likes of Marco Reus and Mario Gotze, or Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, which put like that, could be the real game-changer.
