Tottenham face Arsenal and Burnley competition for Nathan Wood
The 17-year-old has played for the England U18s and has also become Boro’s youngest player ever when he featured in the EFL Cup.
The report adds that Arsenal
Wood mostly plays as a centre-back but is capable of taking up a defensive midfield role too.
Spurs looking at another youngster
Jack Clarke was signed in the summer and has a ton of potential. Ryan Sessegnon also joined us this season, and it will be interesting to see how he develops under Mauricio Pochettino.
Wood could be a great defender in the future but he isn’t a regular for Boro yet and needs more experience in the lower leagues before making the jump up.
Spurs could follow the Clarke route and send Wood back to the lower leagues to attain more first-team minutes.
Tottenham need to plan for their future too as both Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are in their 30s.
