Josh Onomah is one of England's top youth stars, but should Tottenham be concerned about reports Man City are considering a bid?

Tottenham's England Under-18 midfield star Josh Onomah is reportedly being tracked by Manchester City, according to the Mirror.

The report says that the Citizens are eager to add talented homegrown players to their squad, even if they aren't quite ready for the first team.

Onomah, who made his debut for Spurs last season, is one of those they are looking at, but White Hart Lane fans shouldn't be too concerned at losing one of their top prospects - he recently told the club's website that featuring for the first-team for the first time was "the best moment of his life."

Do Tottenham have anything to fear with City's interest in Onomah?

One thing Spurs may be able to rely on is the midfielder's own recent statements that he is eager to get access to as much first team football as possible next season.

Speaking to the Tottenham website for a Q & A, Onomah admitted that his senior debut against Burnley was a huge highlight for him, before going on to lay out his plans for the new campaign.

"The best outcome would be playing first team football, if I get an opportunity," the 18-year-old said. "Playing at a senior level will help me to improve and gain more experience. I’m really looking forward to the challenges that 2015-16 will bring."

Whether City's interest is real or not, it is unlikely Onomah will have a better chance of gaining senior football at the Etihad than at Spurs.

The midfielder has a manager who is famed for giving youth a chance in Mauricio Pochettino, while City's expensively assembled squad are just as notorious for inhibiting the careers of young English recruits.
