Report - Four clubs chasing a deal for Spurs youngster Alex Pritchard

Tottenham Alex Pritchard

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Alex Pritchard is a highly sought after player according to the Standard.

The Standard has suggested that four clubs are keeping tabs on the future of Tottenham Hotspur owned Alex Pritchard.

The 21-year-old has been at Spurs since before he became a teenager and is currently on loan at Brentford, impressing with consistent performances in a competitive Championship division.

The Standard has reported that two clubs from the Premier League are interested in potential moves for him, while two clubs from the Championship are also thought to be interested.

“Tottenham midfielder Alex Pritchard has attracted the interest of Swansea and West Brom with his performances on loan at Brentford,” reports the Standard.

“The Griffin Park club would like to turn his season-long loan move into a permanent transfer and have prepared an offer that could rise to £2million.”

“Wolves are also following his progress along with the Premier League duo, but Standard Sport understands Tottenham believe Pritchard could have a future at White Hart Lane.”

Pritchard’s performances for Brentford have also allowed him to retain a position for the England under-21 side under Gareth Southgate, which has allowed him to train and play with several stars already competing at Premier League level.

That will be his ultimate ambition, but central midfield is one of the busiest areas of Tottenham Hotspur’s squad.

First team boss Mauricio Pochettino has shown that he’s not afraid to use younger players in his senior team, but Pritchard will have to work extremely hard to get a chance under the Argentine.

The strength in that position is further demonstrated by the decision to let Gylfi Sigurdsson leave the club last summer, along with another Spurs youngster, Tom Carroll, with both players joining Swansea.

The 21-year-old could inject some freshness and enthusiasm into the Tottenham squad and all he can do in order to get that chance is keep his head down and continue to work hard.
