Tottenham Hotspur lead race for Bristol City star Alex Scott amidst West Ham United interest

According to London World (h/t The Mirror), Tottenham Hotspur are in the lead to complete a move for Bristol City starlet Alex Scott amidst interest from West Ham United for a future transfer. He has quickly become a regular for his side after achieving promotion to the first team only at the start of this term.

Tottenham sent their senior scout Peter Braund to assess Scott, and he was left impressed by the teenager. They have expressed their interest as a result and are in pole position to secure his services in the summer transfer window. That is despite competition from multiple other Premier League clubs who are also keeping tabs on the youngster.

Everton are also in the fray alongside West Ham as they look to rebuild their squad under Frank Lampard. David Moyes, on the other hand, will be looking to bring in the 18-year-old to boost their chances of pushing into the Champions League places moving forward.

Who is Alex Scott?

Primarily an attacking midfielder, the U19 England international can also play in a variety of positions across the midfield. His flexibility would be a useful asset for any team to have, and his playing style has also been compared to Manchester City’s Jack Grealish.

The Robins midfielder has featured in 28 matches this season and has scored three goals alongside two assists in the second division. The early promise he has shown has caused many inside the Championship side to declare him as “elite“, indicating the potential he can reach in the future.

Leicester City have shown an interest in facilitating a move for the Championship prospect as well ahead of next season, according to London World (h/t Hartlepool Mail). Despite our current lead, we must remain vigilant at all times so as not to lose out on a talented target in the near future.

With three other clubs from the English top-flight monitoring the situation, we must be wary of more teams entering the race due to the increased attention. As such, it would be best to put an end to this subject at the earliest by reaching an agreement as soon as possible.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Harry Winks are doing a decent job in the middle of the field right now, while Rodrigo Bentancur and Oliver Skipp are also making a mark at N17. But we still could use someone like Scott in the ranks, who can be a long-term prospect for us. Whether that will happen or not, though, remains to be seen in due time.

Dele Alli’s permanent departure to Goodison Park has opened up a spot in the attacking area of our midfield, while Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele’s loan moves show where they are in the pecking order under Conte.

In such an instance, it is always good to plan for the future and sign exciting, talented players who may otherwise cost a fortune in the future if they reach their potential. He may not be an instant starter to solve any potential problems Conte may be having in his midfield, but Scott would certainly not be a shabby addition for the future- if we do sign him, that is.
