Tottenham want 17-year-old Reo Griffiths to sign a new contract with the club amid interest from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, according to the Mirror.
Griffiths scored four goals and provided three assists as Spurs’ Under-18s side thrashed Arsenal 9-0 in a Premier League youth fixture earlier this week.
The teenager has now found the net 33 times in domestic competition this season, including seven braces and three hat-tricks, inevitably drawing comparisons to Harry Kane.
The Mirror claims Tottenham are trying to sort out a new contract for Griffiths, but the striker could leave the club this summer if a deal isn’t agreed.
Earlier this year, reports suggested Leipzig hold an interest in the youngster – former Spurs head of recruitment Paul Mitchell now works for the German club, and he has likely advised his employers to have a look at Griffiths.
That interest remains, according to the Mirror, but there is as of yet no indication Griffiths would be keen on a move abroad.
With Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen set to leave this summer, Tottenham could turn to Griffiths as a deputy for Kane if he is deemed appropriate for the role by Mauricio Pochettino.
