The forward, who scored an incredible 61 goals in Southend’s youth groups last term, has caught the eye of plenty of high-profile teams after a string of impressive performances for Southend.
The striker scored the League One Goal of the Month when he netted from the halfway line on his first-team debut, against Plymouth Argyle in January.
And after making eight appearances for the Essex club this season, reports claim that Spurs have made an approach to sign Kelman, after some very impressive scouting reports on the USA under-18 international.
Here, we discuss whether he’d be a good signing for Spurs…
“This would be a great signing for Spurs.
“Kelman has been very impressive for Southend this season, and made an instant impact upon his first-team debut for the club.
“To score 61 goals at any level is impressive, so Kelman is clearly one for the future.
“Kelman is a talent, so I’m not surprised with this.
“Spurs have a history of adding fine young talent and nurturing them though the ranks.
“If the Southend player was to move to the new White Hart Lane, it could be a fantastic move for the future.
“It’s one I would endorse.”
“There is no doubt that Kelman has potential this season, as his mostly brief appearances for Southend this season have shown.
“That however is not enough to guarantee anything, but it does mean that, with none of the big clubs wanting to miss out on a star and with enough disposable income for it not to be an issue for Tottenham if Kelman doesn’t make the cut, this is really a no lose situation for Spurs.
“For Kelman on the other hand it is an opportunity he may never get again, but he does stand to lose plenty if he doesn’t make it at Spurs, which would be no shame considering the challenges such a change in environment would pose, even if it does demonstrate the vicious cycle of football these days.”
