Spurs monitoring West Brom youngster who could be a bargain summer signing

Tottenham Hotspur are monitoring West Brom midfielder Rekeem Harper, according to the Daily Mail.

What’s the word?

Harper has made a first-team breakthrough at the Baggies this season.

He has made 15 appearances in the Championship, scoring once and laying on one assist.

The Mail claim that Spurs have been impressed with the 18-year-old’s performances and are now considering a summer move.

Indeed, his contract expires at the end of the season and he could move on a free transfer.

West Brom, for their part, are attempting to tie him down to a new deal.

A Levy masterclass… on one condition

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy loves a bargain and this would be exactly that.

Harper is a full England youth international, having won seven caps for the Under-19s, and has a remarkably high ceiling.

However, this swoop would mean absolutely nothing if Spurs were unable to follow up on it.

Mauricio Pochettino’s squad this season has been ravaged by injuries and numbers are needed this summer.

Moves for a new centre-back, new full-backs, a first-team midfielder, a new winger and potentially a new striker should all be on the to-do list.

Bringing in Harper would be a lovely bonus, particularly if they can do it on a free, but it simply must be one signing made as part of a major summer revamp.
