Tottenham Hotspur are looking to bolster their ranks of talented youngsters as they look to snatch a striker from fellow Premier League side Manchester City. According to the latest reports from The Times (via ninety minutes online), Spurs are interested in signing the highly-rated Bobby Duncan.

The youngster has football in his genes and is a cousin of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard. However, he was reportedly turned down by the Reds before joining the famed Etihad Academy at Manchester City.

The report claims that the youngster is contemplating if his future lies at the Etihad and that has given hopes to the likes of Arsenal, Southampton, and Tottenham.

The 16-year-old City Academy player has already impressed at the national level for England having helped the England Under-17 team complete a 3-2 comeback against Portugal on Wednesday.

That is not the first time he impressed for the national side because his hat-trick for the Three Lions Under-16 team against Brazil last November made clubs notice his talent.

That hat-trick incidentally made Duncan the first England player to score a hat-trick against Brazil at any level.

The latest reports indicate that the youngster is yet to sign a professional contract with City and that could pave the way for him to make a switch to any club he desires.

One of the prime concerns that would determine his next destination would be the number of chances he can get in the first-team. It is an open secret that the route to City’s first squad is littered with several foreign stars.

City have already seen the talented Jadon Sancho leave the club to join Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in search of regular football. For all their lofty promises, City struggle to help young Under-16s and Under-18s realize their dreams at the club.

Tottenham, on the other hand, have a proven history of making the careers of many youngsters. Be it Harry Kane or Harry Winks, under their Argentine manager Mauricio Pochettino, the Lily Whites have become the new hotbed for English youngsters.

Should Duncan decide on a move to the White Hart Lane, he can be sure of improving under Pochettino and a better opportunity to grow into senior football.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.

(Video) Watch Tottenham’s new stadium’s artificial pitch lights functioning as work continues

Tottenham stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching towards completion as another new time-lapse video of our home was put up on YouTube.

The latest video shows a lot of pavement work being done outside. And the most interesting aspect of the clip is of our pitch.

Cranes can be seen operating on the surface inside the stadium. Once the vehicles leave, our artificial lighting can be seen moving about and illuminating the surface.

There is a lot of work still to be done on the exteriors and Tottenham haven’t communicated as to when our new home would be completed.

We had reported that Spurs quashed suggestions that the venue would not be ready before 2019.

Another allegation related to drug and alcohol abuse by the workers in the stadium was also refuted.

Tottenham had earlier claimed that the venue would be complete by 15th September, which was our clash against Liverpool.

Although a lot of effort is being taken to ensure the home is finished as quickly as possible, it is frustrating to see the stadium not looking close to completion as the pitch hasn’t been installed yet.
