Tottenham are plotting a £5m move for Bayern Munich youngster Julian Green, according to reports from The Metro.

The 18-year-old is far from being a first-team regular at the Allianz Arena, but his burgeoning reputation has earned him a spot in the USA’s World Cup squad.

A pacey winger, Green was born in America and opted to represent the nation on the international scene despite turning out for Germany at youth level.

Mauricio Pochettino has been watching his situation of late, and is ready to make him his first major signing since taking control at Spurs.

Despite his reputation, the Argentine believes that he can get the teenager for around £5m due to his distance from Bayern’s starting XI.

Green himself is believed to be keen on a move to play more regularly and maintain his spot in the USA’s senior squad in the future.

The wide-man netted 15 goals for Bayern’s reserve team last term, attracting much attention from sides across Europe.

Pochettino has a history of working with promising young players after nurturing Luke Shaw and others at Southampton.
