Tottenham have joined the race to sign Blackpool teenager, Bright Osayi-Samuel. The teenager has been in outstanding form for the League two team this season and has attracted the attention of several top teams.
Everton and Aston Villa also hold strong interest in the player and they have repeatedly sent their scouts to watch the player this season, but it seems that Tottenham have stolen a march on them for the player’s signature.
Tottenham have been frustrated in their pursuit of Crystal Palace winger, Wilfried Zaha and they believe that Osayi-Samuel is a close match to the Ivorian.
Osayi-Samuel has been compared to Wilfried Zaha for his style of play and the 19 year old looks set move up the ladder of English football this summer.
He qualifies for England, but has pledged his allegiance to Nigeria, the country of his birth. He moved to England via Spain as a 10 years old.
He has scored five goals in 38 appearance for the Tangerines this season.
He is currently focused on developing his career at Blackpool but is also open to moving to the Premier League this summer.
