Tottenham Turn Thier Attention To Sign Arsenal Target From League Two

Bright Osayi-Samuel: A man in demand

Tottenham have been in the race to sign Blackpool youngster Bright Osayi-Samuel, as per the reports from Daily Express.. The 19-year-old has been regarded as one of the best players in League Two. Tottenham have had huge success when it comes to signing young players from the lower divisions, and there is a consensus that Bright Osayi-Samuel could join in the list. The right-sided midfielder has managed to score two goals in 27 appearances. Tottenham are not only club showing interest in the youngster, as Arsenal are also in the mix. However, both clubs are thought to be concerned about the entry of Aston Villa into the picture – according to the Birmingham Mail .

While a club in the Championship like Aston Villa may not be seen as a threat in the transfer market for clubs like Arsenal and Tottenham, there is quite a possibility of a player like Bright Osayi-Samuel choosing Villa Park over White Hart Lane or the Emirates stadium. Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has been sending a lot of scouts in recent weeks. Bright Osayi-Samuel has been a regular for Blackpool since making his debut for the club in 2014.

One of the major factors behind the club’s queuing up for the signature of the 19-year-old is that his contract runs out in the summer. Even though he is a right winger by nature, Blackpool manager Gary Bowyer has deployed him in several positions of late. Osayi-Samuel has featured in the left wing or as a striker when required. Bowyer has admitted that the club will be powerless to prevent the 19-year-old from leaving. The opportunity to receive a huge sign-on bonus could be one of the decisive factors that could lead to Osayi-Samuel not signing a contract with Blackpool.

Even though the club that signs the player will have to pay a training compensation since the player has moved on a free transfer when he is less than 23 years of age, it is likely to be much lower than his current transfer value of around £1 million. Aston Villa will seem like a great destination for the player considering that his first-team opportunities will be significantly higher. The club recently appointed former United defender Steve Bruce as the new manager. The arrival of Bruce has helped alleviate any fears of relegation. Rather than move to a Premier League club where his first-team opportunities would be limited straight away, Osayi-Samuel may consider the possibility of joining a Championship club and play regularly.

Spurs, though, will represent his best possible option when it comes to Premier League choices. The club have a great track record of fast-tracking young players even if they come from the lower leagues. The likes of Kyle Walker and Dele Alli are perfect examples of the same.
