Tottenham Hotspur show interest in Peterborough United youngster Benjamin Mensah

As per the Peterborough Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are said to be interested in Peterborough United defender Benjamin Mensah and have enquired about the player’s availability.

The 19-year-old has only made four appearances for his club so far, all of which have been in the EFL Trophy, over the past two seasons. The player is said to be highly thought of by Peterborough United, who currently sit 22nd in the Championship table.

Despite being held back this season by injuries and contracting Covid twice, the club’s director of football Barry Fry confirmed that Spurs have been one of the sides that have approached him regarding the youngster’s availability.

“I have talked to Tottenham and they have suggested one or two things to me, which I told the manager and the chairman about but they were adamant it was a no. Tottenham are still monitoring the situation.”

Antonio Conte has demanded reinforcements this transfer window to beef up his squad, and Spurs seem to have identified young Mensah as a potential candidate. The 19-year-old barely has enough experience playing at the highest level, but it is a testament to his skill that a Premier League club like Tottenham has inquired about him.

Despite significant interest in the player from several sides, Peterborough does not seem keen to lose the teenager. Fry confirmed to the club media that all offers for the teenager have been rejected.

Mensah has been unlucky this season with injuries and COVID, but Fry believes that the defender would have been making appearances for the first team if not for these unfortunate obstacles.

“Benjy has been so, so unlucky. If he hadn’t had the injuries and covid twice, he’d have been knocking on the door of the first team. It’s nice that clubs like Tottenham recognise his talent but we have declined everything that has been suggested.”

Antonio Conte is keen on reinforcements this month.

In what has been a quiet January for Spurs so far, it is surprising to see a relatively unknown name like Mensah’s being floated around in the market and reports of the club being interested in bringing him to London.

Conte however, will be looking at players that can make an instant impact with his team and push us up the table in the coming weeks. Mensah is surely not what the Italian would have expected to land this month.

Despite Mensah’s talent and the interest surrounding him, it is clear that we need more than a teenage full-back to inspire our team to succeed this season. His lack of first-team experience makes the chances of him making a stunning impact unlikely.

Mensah may be an investment for the future, and Spurs are sure to pursue him with an eye on developing the player for the highest level. But for now, we need top talents playing at the highest level to spur us on in our quest to gain finish the season strong.
