Tottenham Hotspur have offered a three-year deal to goalkeeper Isak Midttun Solberg, according to Stavanger Aftenblad via SportWitness.
A lot has changed for Tottenham in recent years and big developments are on the horizon, with the club set to move imminently into a new stadium that they hope will lead to plenty of success – perhaps even a league title for the first time in over 50 years.
There is plenty of work to be done before then though and Spurs will have their eye on the future when it comes to new additions, where a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris will be one of the most difficult tasks ahead of the Lilywhites.
Spurs seem to have a trick up their sleeve though as Stavanger Aftenblad via SportWitness state that the North London side have offered a three-year deal to Norway talent Isak Midttun Solberg, with his father confirming the approach.
“I can confirm that Isak has been offered a three-year contract starting next summer. We’ll go back again in the autumn holiday. A decision about the offer will be taken in the new year.”
Currently plying his trade for Bryne FK, Midttun Solberg sensationally made his first-team debut for the club at the age of just 14 and, still just 15, would be available on a free transfer as he is not tied down to a professional deal.

Making the jump to a side like Tottenham would be a daunting task for the teenager but he would be given the chance to develop under close attention from Mauricio Pochettino, who has a habit of getting the best out of young talents, before potentially taking the mantle from Lloris further down the line.
With the World Cup winner still 31, the former Lyon man has a number of years left in the tank before the north London club have to seriously consider finding a new first-choice stopper, but Midttun Solberg could theoretically save Spurs a large sum of money in the market if he lives up to his potential.
