The Whites have long been known for bringing through young players, and Marcelo Bielsa has embraced that history, developing Clarke this season.
The 18-year-old wide man notched two goals and two assists for Leeds this season, starting just four league games whilst racking up 20 substitute appearances.
Clarke's direct dribbling and pace really impressed many, and it's no great surprise that he's already attracting major interest after Leeds missed out on promotion back to the Premier League.
The Independent claim that Leeds have now had several enquiries from teams looking to sign Clarke, though no bids have actually been submitted just yet.
With other Premier League clubs interest, Tottenham can't afford to wait around, as they're often guilty of doing in the transfer market.
They need to move now and secure Clarke, even if they end up having to a deal like Dele Alli, where he's loaned back to Leeds to continue his development. Either way, Spurs can't sit back and allow a Premier League rival to beat them to Clarke, and whilst they're still reeling from their Champions League final defeat, they need to act now for Clarke.
