Tottenham’s under 21’s have been claiming impressive headlines in their own right and the side claimed a fifth successive victory in their version of the Premier League with a 4-1 win at Stoke on Saturday. By all accounts, their dominance was such that the score could have sneaked into double figures but for the performance of the Stoke goalkeeper.
Those displays have also extended to the NextGen series but the performances in this competition, and in particular a defeat of Barcelona has led to rumours linking at least two of the players with a transfer to the biggest two teams in La Liga.
Shaq Coulthirst scored a perfect hat trick in the 4-1 win over Barca earlier this month and it’s being reported that the Catalan giants are now monitoring his progress. Meanwhile, Alex Pritchard who added the fourth goal in that game is said to be under Real Madrid’s microscope.
Of course, this could be an example of the laziest journalism ever but if there is any truth in these rumours, it might be hard to keep both players happy at the Lane, when a move of this kind is in prospect.
