According to an exclusive report from Own Goal Nigeria, Tottenham Hotspur have been offered exciting young duo Kingsley Michael and Orji Okonkwo.

The report cites a source which claims the duo’s agent is waiting for a final decision from Tottenham after allegedly making them available to the North London club earlier this summer.

It is being reported that Michael and Okonkwo already have an offer on the table from Italian side Spezia, but that any move could be dependent on Tottenham’s decision.

Michael is a 16-year-old defensive midfielder while Okonkwo is a 17-year-old goal-scorer who has previously been linked to both West Ham United and Chelsea by All Nigeria Soccer.

Tottenham are always on the lookout for exciting young players yet for now their focus will be on securing the senior stars who can fire them to the next level, with Victor Wanyama expected to be joined by Vincent Janssen in due course.

It remains to be seen if Michael and Okonkwo will be Tottenham players in the future or if this is simply a case of an agent trying to get the best possible deal for those he represents.
