Tottenham Hotspur scouts assessed Hoffenheim starlet Nadiem Amiri during Germany U21s' emphatic 7-0 victory over Azerbaijan last week.

The 21-year-old, who is also capable of playing on the left wing if required, was amongst the scorers for his country and produced an encouraging overall display, which will undoubtedly have impressed Tottenham's representatives, as reported by

A player with vast potential, Amiri is renowned for his excellent technique, while he is also rather quick. There may well be some concerns regarding whether he could cope with the intensity and physicality of the Premier League, but there is little doubt about the prospect's ability when in possession.

Part of the side that won the U21 European Championship this year, it is expected that Amiri will go on to become a senior Germany international and, as he continues to develop, the interest in him will inevitably intensify.
