Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are both interested in signing Tottenham starlet Troy Parrott, according to 90 Min.

Parrott made his first-team debut for Spurs in last month’s embarrassing Carabao Cup exit at Colchester United. Despite his failure to make an impression in that game, the 17-year-old has impressed for Tottenham’s youth team and has become a key player for the Republic of Ireland’s Under-21s side.

He scored 14 goals in nine appearances for Spurs’ Under-18s last season and has been identified as a potential first-teamer for the Londoners in the future. But it looks like the club may have to work hard to keep hold of him.

According to 90 Min, Bayern and Dortmund are both chasing Parrott as they look to add depth to their front lines. Bayern in particular are on the lookout for a long-term replacement for the 31-year-old Robert Lewandowski, who was excellent against Tottenham in the Champions League recently.

Dortmund have prospered from English academies in the past, taking Jadon Sancho from Manchester City and giving him plenty of first-team opportunities. Spurs will hope Parrott will resist the urge to move to Germany if the Bundesliga duo come calling.
