Adrian Blake to snub Watford contract amidst Tottenham Hotspur links

Watford wonderkid Adrian Blake, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, is set to snub a contract offer from the Hornets, according to the Evening Standard.

The 17-year-old has turned down the latest deal that was offered by the Championship outfit. As such, the youngster is now considering the options for his future.

A number of teams in the Premier League as well as abroad are interested in the English national. Therefore, the forward has an important decision to make—whether to fast-track his way into a club’s first-team setup or join a top sides academy.

Blake has already made three appearances for Watford in the current campaign. However, the youngster is yet to get a call-up to the Three Lions’ youth team. As a result, Jamaica are looking to poach the forward.

The 17-year-old is one of the most promising prospects to come out from the Hornets’ academy. However, it remains to be seen what the future holds for him.

Tottenham have an abundance of young talent in their ranks as well. The North London side have seen the likes of Troy Parrott, Alfie Devine and Dane Scarlett, amongst others, develop in the academy.

Harry Kane is one the best examples of Spurs’ talented youth setup. The England international is now the Lilywhites’ talisman. Over the years, the 29-year-old has turned into a world-class striker.

However, Tottenham possess an ageing squad right now. In the attack, Kane and Son Heun-min are not getting any younger. Therefore it is pivotal for the North London side to plan for the future.
