Report: European clubs to launch bids for exciting Spurs prospect yet to make debut

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Grant Ward is reported to be attracting interest from clubs across Europe.

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Grant Ward has drawn admiring glances from Deportivo La Coruna and Udinese, according to a report on TalkSPORT.

Ward is yet to make a senior appearance for Spurs, but Udinese and Depor are reported to have seen enough in him to convince them that he could enhance their squads in the future.

Ward has taken in loan spells at Chicago Fire and Coventry City during his fledgling career, and his performances at both clubs have clearly done enough to attract the attention of clubs across the continent.

Ward's future is in doubt due to the competition for places in Tottenham's central-midfield, and the 20-year-old reportedly feels that he may have a better chance of making the grade elsewhere.

Would Tottenham be impacted by losing Ward?

There would be no initial impact on their first-team to losing Ward, but it would be surprising to see Spurs prepared to part with one of their brighter prospects.

Tottenham have shown a desire to develop their own players and Ward looks to be one of the more promising scholars in their ranks at this moment in time.

If he did depart, though, it would show the London outfit's confidence in the Dele Alli, Harry Winks and Josh Onomah, as the trio could all become starting midfielders for the Lilywhites in the future and the club clearly do not want to block their progress.
