Report: Tottenham scout Anderlecht star Andy Najar

Tottenham are showing an interest in signing Anderlecht’s Andy Najar.

Tottenham’s transfer work over the summer was all based around building a young and energetic team to progress into the future, and a report in Belgian media outlet De Standaard has claimed that Spurs are scouting another player who fits this policy.

Andy Najar currently plays for Anderlecht, and is the target of a Tottenham scouting mission that has seen the North London club keep their eye on him for a number of weeks.

Coincidentally, Najar is part of the Anderlecht team who took on Spurs in the Europa League, although the 22-year-old winger missed the game. However, he should be ready to return to the squad this week, when the two teams take on at White Hart Lane.

A Honduran international, Najar already has 176 club appearances to his name, as well as 31 international caps, despite still being just 22.

If Najar’s career had progressed in a different manner, he could actually have already been playing for Spurs, as he spent a trial spell with the Lilywhites in 2011. Whilst still a DC United player, Najar spent two weeks with Spurs, but could not earn a permanent move, and he switched to Anderlecht in 2013.

Despite the failure to agree a deal back then, Spurs are once again showing an interest in Najar, and the youngster will be hoping to prove himself in the coming weeks ahead of the January transfer window.
