Tottenham Step Up Interest In Pursuit Of This Talented English Lad As Manchester United Join The Race

Published

on

Tottenham Hotpsur are looking to step up their interest in Bolton Wanderers’ goalkeeper Jake Turner after learning that Manchester United are also interested in the player. The Lilywhites are yet to sign a player for the first team but are looking to add this highly rated teenage ‘keeper to the squad. As reported by The Sun, the race for the 18-year-old is just heating up.

Jose Mourinho is interested in bringing Turner to Old Trafford and has earmarked him as one for the future. The Red Devils have been tipped by some of the FA coaching staff on the quality of the Under-18 Three Lions’ player.

Bolton Ready To Cash In On The Player

Bolton Wanderers are in no rush for the sale after having put Turner on a full-time contract only recently. He was on the bench last season but is expected to make it to the main team soon. Everton too were interested, but United’s interest is a bit more serious. Sensing a need to up their ante, Spurs have sent scouts to Bolton’s last two reserve games, to watch the youngster, and are ready to make a bid.

Bolton will surely take the highest offer and aid manager Phil Parkinson’s bid to strengthen his ranks following the club’s return to the Championship.

A Very Good Under-study

Turner would not make it to the first team or even the match day squad. The youngster will play for the reserve team of the club he may join and would be a great addition. He is highly rated and has the right characteristics to make it big at the highest level. Will that be at Tottenham or Manchester is the question.

The Cheshire-born keeper is expected to be snapped up by one of the top sides before he gets to make his first team debut at the Macron Stadium.

The lanky ‘keeper started his career as a striker but looks a very natural goalkeeper. With United in the fray, this could go down to who bids the maximum. Daniel Levy is not a great fan of bidding high for young players and that could be a stumbling block.

However, considering the future potential, Turner could be an exception to this Levy rule.
