Tottenham ‘seriously interested’ in £25m rated ‘phenomenal’ midfielder praised by Pep Guardiola – club ready to sell

 

According to journalist, Tottenham are one of the clubs interested in signing Bristol City midfielder Alex Scott.

 

Scott has attracted interest from clubs all over Europe after an incredible season with Bristol which saw him win the EFL Young Player of the Year award.

Among clubs keen on signing him include West Ham, Wolves, Inter Milan, Leeds United, Leicester City, Brentford, Liverpool and Brighton.

 

Jacobs reported that Spurs are “seriously interested” in Alex Scott along with Wolves.

 

He added that Scott would cost Spurs around £25m and that Bristol City would sell him for the right price.

 

Speaking on the Tottenham Fan Chris Cowlin YouTube channel about Tottenham and their interest in Scott, Jacobs said:

 

“The big one is Alex Scott for sure. There are two front runners for him who are very seriously interested in a deal – Tottenham and Wolves.

Wolves have been all over him for months and months and months. There are plenty of others who have looked and luckily from Tottenham and Wolves’ point of view some of them are now in the Championship – because Leeds and Leicester were two of them. Brentford could be one to watch and Brighton have taken a look as well.

 

“Scott is a phenomenal talent, with tremendous potential and very mature for his age. Even clubs like Liverpool have scouted the player but they are one who are definitely not going to move. The deal would need around £25 million and Bristol City know that if the right number comes in they will sell the player. This is going to be one to watch for Spurs and Wolves.”

Scott has drawn special praise from Manchester City’s treble-winning boss Pep Guardiola after their Carabao Cup meeting last season, the Spaniard calling the midfielder an “unbelievable talent”.

Ange Postecoglou has a reputation of developing young talent and although he may not get into the first team immediately, it could be an ideal move for the younsgters development.
