Real Madrid are interested in signing Tottenham striker Troy Parrott, according to Spanish sports magazine Don Balon.

The 18-year-old, who will miss the restart of the Premier League campaign after having his appendix removed at the beginning of this month, burst onto the scene at the start of 2019 when he caught the eye of manager Mauricio Pochettino after some excellent performances for Spurs’ youth sides.

Parrott trained with the senior side towards the back end of last season, but didn’t make his first-team debut until the Carabao Cup tie against Colchester United back in September.

Despite his impact with the first-team, Parrott continued to shine for the U23s, netting a brace against Manchester City in August before bagging an incredible four goals in one match in a UEFA Youth League victory over Red Star Belgrade two months later.

The striker has also earned recognition on the international stage and was handed his Republic of Ireland senior debut in a friendly win over New Zealand. Since then, Parrott was linked with a loan move to a host of Championship clubs in January, but instead, ended up signing a new three-year contract with Tottenham, keeping him at the club until 2023.

However, the report suggest that La Liga giants are keeping a close eye on the teenager, who has struggled for first-team opportunities under Jose Mourinho – making just four appearances in all competitions this season.
