Three Football League stars Tottenham could sign to follow in Alli's footsteps

We take a look at the Football League youngsters from Leeds United, Bournemouth and Birmingham City that Tottenham Hotspur could be considering signing.

With Tottenham Hotspur seemingly intent on building a young team, they are likely to have a keen eye on the progress of some of the Football League's brightest prospects.

Spurs are renowned for typically signing players with high re-sale values and they may see the Football League as a good market for them to shop in. 

Tottenham have already moved to sign Dele Alli from MK Dons this season and here are three fellow lower-league players who could join him at White Hart Lane in the summer.

Lewis Cook (Leeds United)

The 18-year-old already looks a thoroughly accomplished performer and his future is hugely exciting. 

Cook has become a mainstay in Leeds' team, making 31 appearances for the side already this season.

It is a staggering achievement for someone of such tender years and Cook will be hoping that he can fulfil his very obvious potential in the future.

The central midfielder likes to operate as a protector of the back four, but he is also very adept in possession and can drive the team onwards with the ball at his feet.

It makes him the complete midfield player and his future looks set to be spent at a higher level than the Championship, meaning Leeds will need to get promoted soon if they are to stop him leaving. 

Callum Wilson (Bournemouth)

Strong, quick and clinical, Wilson has the makings of a top Premier League striker and he looks one of the finest talents in the lower leagues.

With Danny Ings and Charlie Austin both proving that the Championship's best are able to score goals in the Premier League this season, Wilson looks set to follow in their footsteps soon.

The 22-year-old has 18 goals in 36 appearances for Bournemouth this season and Tottenham could do far worse than to bring him in over the summer.

Demarai Gray (Birmingham City)

The Birmingham winger has shot to prominence this season, with his skill and pace being a threat to defences across the division.

Although Gray is still a raw prospect he has all the natural talent to go to the very top and he looks one of the finest youngsters in the country.

The 18-year-old has four goals in 29 appearances for Birmingham this campaign and he is already one of their most vital attacking influences.

As a result, the Blues are determined to keep hold of him - and Sky Sports carried reports of them rejecting a £5 million for Gray in January - but if Spurs are prepared to spend big then Gray could be a great acquisition for the future.
