St James Park

Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are reportedly interested in Newcastle United’s Olivier Kemen.

Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are interested in Newcastle United midfielder Olivier Kemen, according to L’Equipe.

The French sports newspaper has not provided any further information regarding the two clubs' interest, though.

Who is Olivier Kemen?

Kemen is a highly-rated French midfielder who is only 18 years of age.

The teenager has yet to make his debut for the Newcastle first team, but he trained with the Magpies senior squad on a number of occasions last season.

The youngster played well for the Newcastle Under-21 last season, and came close to making his debut for the senior side.

Newcastle signed Kemen from French club Metz in the summer of 2013.

Do Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur need Olivier Kemen?

No, at the moment neither Liverpool nor Tottenham need Kemen. However, the Frenchman is a hugely talented player who would be a good investment for the future.

Both the Reds and Spurs have given chances to young players over the years, and their reported interested in Kemen should not come as a surprise.
