Southampton may be an unlikely breeding ground for top Premiership talent but as all Spurs fans will know, they gave us PFA player of the year Gareth Bale while apparently there are some ex-saints plying their trade up the road.
With that track record, it’s no surprise that the top sides are keeping tabs on the south coast’s biggest club and Spurs are believed to be preparing a move for Luke Shaw, a 16 year old who has just broken into the first team squad at St Mary’s.
Shaw has yet to play a first team game but has impressed in his age group at England level and while Arsenal scouts have been watching him, it’s thought that Harry could use some old contacts to get his man.
In the meantime, Spurs are also said to be preparing a bid for another young player; this time it’s 15 year old George Green, who scored a hat trick in a youth game while on trial at White Hart Lane. Everton have been rumoured to be close to a move for the Bradford midfielder, but Spurs could be ready to gazump the cash-starved Merseysiders.
Both players look to be good prospects and while it would take time to turn them into first team players, they could form part of a capable dynasty at Spurs that may include the likes of Tom Carroll, Harry Kane and Souleymayne Coulibaly.
