Tottenham are reportedly closing in on an agreement with Leeds United to sign Jack Clarke.
Clarke, 18, broke into Leeds’ first-team in October and caught the eye in a promising debut season in the Championship, notching up two goals and two assists across the campaign for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Spurs were immediately alerted to Clarke’s potential and talks over a possible deal for the young forward have accelerated over recent days.
According to The Evening Standard, Tottenham are hopeful that Clarke will be their opening signing of the summer transfer window.
It’s claimed the two clubs are discussing a fee of around £8.5million, plus add-ons, for the teenager.
Despite Clarke’s lack of experience, Mauricio Pochettino expects Clarke to compete for a place in Spurs’ first-team next season should the transfer go through.
Clarke would be the first player to join Tottenham since January 2018 when Lucas Moura arrived from Paris Saint-Germain for a fee of around £25m.
