Tottenham are planning an audacious move to snap up Chelsea starlet Patrick Bamford at the end of the season, according to reports from The Metro.

The 20-year-old striker has been making a name for himself in the Football League over the course of the past few seasons with a number of goal scoring displays during loan stints with MK Dons and Derby.

In 48 outings for the League One side he managed to find the back of the net on 21 occasions, and he has carried that form into a temporary spell with the Rams by notching five strikes in seven games since January.

Despite his form, it looks unlikely that Bamford will feature for Chelsea next season, which has alerted Spurs.

Tim Sherwood is believed to be ready to offer the starlet a spot in his first-team squad and the promise of top tier playing time to turn his back on the Blues – whom he only joined in 2012 from Nottingham Forest.

Bamford has earned a reputation for his cool head in the penalty area and ability to bring team-mates into play during his time in the various divisions for English football, and has even represented the Three Lions at U-21 level.
