According to Sky Sports, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to sell playmaker Alex Pritchard - but they want a fee of around £8m to do so.

Pritchard, 23, had been on the books with West Ham before joining Spurs in 2009, aged 16 - and he has been making his way up through the ranks at White Hart Lane.

The diminutive attacking midfielder had been a regular for Spurs' youth and reserve teams before loan spells with Peterborough, Swindon and Brentford, with the latter providing the most success.

The former England Under-21 international hit 12 goals and seven assists during his season-long loan deal with Brentford during the 2014/15 season, and he headed back to Spurs with real hope of a first-team place after the emergence of Ryan Mason and Harry Kane from the Tottenham youth ranks.

However, Pritchard not only required surgery on an ankle injury, but was then loaned out to West Brom in January, making just two appearances for a combined 62 minutes of action.

Pritchard's career at Spurs is now looking in doubt, and despite looking like a young English player with real talent, it now looks like Tottenham are willing to sell the player this summer.

Sky Sports report that Tottenham could move Pritchard on, and have named their price at £8m as the midfielder looks to play first-team football next season and beyond.

It's added that two unnamed Premier League clubs are keen to land Pritchard this summer, but with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy a notoriously difficult negotiator, they may have to pay the full £8m asking price to land Pritchard.
