Report: After scouting Alli, David Pleat wants Spurs to sign Luton's Tyreeq Bakinson

Tottenham are reportedly keen on Luton Town teenager Tareeq Bakinson.

According to The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are looking to sign Tyreeq Bakinson from Luton Town, with David Pleat recommending him to the club.

Spurs have earned quite the reputation for developing young players under current manager Mauricio Pochettino, as a host of starlets have become first-team players at White Hart Lane.

Players like Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Ryan Mason, Tom Carroll, Joshua Onomah and Harry Kane have all made the step-up under Pochettino, and other young players are no doubt keen to join Spurs' youth movement.

Now, The Mirror report that Spurs are keen to sign another young English player, with Luton Town midfielder Tyreeq Bakinson now on the club's radar after a recommendation from scout David Pleat.

Pleat, a former Luton and Spurs manager, is a talent spotter for Tottenham and is even credited with recommending current Spurs star Dele Alli to the club whilst he was starring for Milton Keynes Dons in League One.

Alli has taken the Premier League by storm this season, and another central midfielder like Bakinson could see his success and be desperate to make the move to North London.

The 17-year-old has yet to make his first-team debut for the Hatters, but the 6ft 3in teenager has already signed a three-and-a-half year professional deal with Luton, such is their admiration for their hottest young prospect.

Yet with Pleat allegedly urging Spurs to make a move for Bakinson, Luton could end up losing the midfielder this summer as Spurs chase another Dele Alli-like signing.
