Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Genk attacker Dante Vanzeir.

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Genk forward Dante Vanzeir, report Italian website Tuttomercatoweb.

Vanzeir played in the same Belgian side at the under-17 World Cup as Ismail Azzaoui, the impressive youngster signed by Spurs from Anderlecht in 2014, before surprisingly being sold to Wolfsburg 12 months later.

Ominously, Tuttomercatoweb report Wolfsburg are also interested in the player, along with Serie A giants Inter Milan.

Vanzeir, born in 1998, is 17-years-old and is a right winger. His contract with Belgian club Genk is set to expire in the summer.

He is yet to make his first team debut for the club, and has two goals in seven games for Belgium's under-17s. He has recently made the step up to under-18 level.

He would be a player expected to go into Tottenham's under-21 side rather than the first team, but signing him could help make up for the disappointing and peculiar decision to sell Azzaoui, after a sensational first season in North London.
