The Daily Mail is reporting that the current English Premier League champions Manchester City are interested in luring young Tottenham Hotspur prodigy Omari Forson away from the clutches of the London based club this transfer period. Everton have also been monitoring the young man as they look to deplete Tottenham of their star Under-14 youth player.
Young Omari was said to have trained with the Everton junior set up earlier this week as he starts to make a name for himself in the game. City had been keeping tabs on the youngster way back in 2009 when the 9-year-old was tied to West Ham United.
Tottenham acted upon their desires to lure Forson with the target to help him develop further as a player whilst training with their youth team’s setup. Spurs are trying to keep young Omari in their ranks as the 14-year-old could be tempted to turn his head to the direction of the English first tier champions. It is understood that City will have to pay Tottenham a small amount of money as compensation for luring away their young prized possession if they are to be successful in their capture.
If Spurs do manage to develop the boy into someone who is a proper professional, then White Hart Lane will have a real prodigy in their ranks. Omari is known to prefer his left foot over the right and plays as a centre-forward and can be a great asset to the North London club in the future.
Great things are expected out of Omari should he continue to work hard at achieving his dream of playing professional football. While still at West Ham United during his Under 10 and 11 phase, his performances drew similarities to that of Football Icon Zlatan Ibrahimovic. A heavy burden to place on the young boy’s shoulders considering he has miles to go before he can dream of replicating what the Swedish legend has accomplished in the sport.
To have their son enrolled in a fantastic Manchester City graduate set up, Omari’s family are keen for the deal to fall in place. He also became a YouTube sensation at the age of eight, for showcasing his skills of control over the ball.
Tottenham will do well to keep the player under contract and both parties will have to play an equal part in implementing the plan to nurture him from a boy into a man, completely in love with football. Omari Forson; remember the name!
