Tottenham step up chase for top European and South American teenagers

Tottenham have been criticised for much of this summer for not signing any new player, but the Lillywhite’s are set to respond by signing two of Europe’s exciting young talents.

According to Mirror Sports, Spurs are set to make an official bid for Giovanni Simeone and German youth star, Max Meyer.

Simeone has been in sparkling form in Serie A with Genoa. He scored 12 goals in 35 Serie A games last season, but it is his work rate that has attracted the attention of Mauricio Pochettino.

Poch likes hard working players and that explains why he has stuck with Vincent Jansen for another season even though the Dutchman has endured a barren spell in front of goal so far.

Meyer is one of the most exciting young talents coming out of Germany right now and captained his countries under 23 side to the Olympics in Brazil. He has rejected a new deal from his current team, Schalke 04, and has just 12 months left on his current deal.

Tottenham sees him as a cheaper alternative to Everton’s Ross Barkley who has been demanding upwards of £100,000 per week. © 2017 Frontier Theme
