According to Calciomercato, Tottenham Hotspur are one of the clubs to have registered an interest in signing Atalanta striker Musa Barrow.

Barrow, 19, has been on the books with Atalanta since 2016, plucking him from Banjul, the capital of his native Gambia as he looked to kickstart his career.

Now, Barrow has taken Serie A by storm after some superb displays in recent weeks, scoring three goals in his last four games as well as adding an assist too.

The teenager's tally for the season now stands at three goals and two assists in just 356 minutes of Serie A action, and his displays appear to be attracting major interest.

Calciomercato report that Tottenham Hotspur are one of the teams pursuing Barrow, with Juventus, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund also in the battle.

It's claimed that Atalanta don't want to sell Barrow this summer, as they believe that they can continue to develop him into next season, and would then charge around €35million (£30million) for his signature in January 2019 or the summer of 2019.

Spurs are still searching for another striker to back up Harry Kane, and with Daniel Levy almost certainly preferring a potential bargain now over a huge fee in a year's time, Spurs may well try their luck for Barrow.

That would make the striker just the second Gambian player to feature in the Premier League, after former Swansea City winger Modou Barrow.
