17 Y/O Tottenham Hotspur Ace Red Hot On Bundesliga Club’s Radar: Should Pochettino Let Him Leave?

RB Leipzig are plotting a move for Tottenham Hotspur youngster Reo Griffiths next summer. According to recent reports, the 17-year-old has emerged as a target for the big-spending Bundesliga club. The English teenager is being dubbed as the new Harry Kane in North London and has recently enhanced his growing reputation by scoring a hat-trick in Spurs’ Premier League Youth Cup semifinal victory over their North London rivals Arsenal last weekend.

Griffiths has found the back of the net 20 times for the Tottenham Under-18 team so far in this campaign and has been tipped to be the latest promising talent to progress through the youth ranks and break into the Spurs first-team following in the footsteps of Kane and Harry Winks. He has also featured for his nation at the youth level and is widely considered as one of the most talented young prospects in English football after impressing for both club and country during the past few years.

The London born forward is being monitored by a number of European giants due to his incredible goalscoring exploits. RB Leipzig have been made aware of Griffiths’ talents by their new head of recruitment Paul Mitchell who has previously worked at Spurs and knows about the English starlet’s undoubted potential.

The North Londoners are currently in 5th place in the Premier League table, just a point behind fourth-placed Chelsea with just 11 league matches remaining this term. Spurs are hoping to finish in the top 4 so that they can ensure Champions League football for the next campaign. 

However, they are a massive 20 points behind the league leaders Manchester City and are in need dire need to bring in some reinforcements in the summer to bridge the gap between themselves and the Premier League’s ‘Top 4’ in the next few years. The departure of Griffiths would come as a big blow for Pochettino as he looks to build a bigger and brighter future for the Lilywhites. The Argentinian manager should do everything in his power to make sure that the youngster stays put at the club and continues with his development. 

German clubs are slowly making a habit of moving in for English talents as evidenced by RB Leipzig’s loan signing of Ademola Lookman from Everton as well as Borussia Dortmund’s acquisition of Jadon Sancho from Manchester City. Hence, a potential move for Griffiths looks like a real possibility if they can convince Tottenham Hotspur to part ways with their prized asset. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Griffiths and whether he ends up leaving Spurs in search of fresh adventures in the near future.
