Tottenham have a genuine interest in Jack Clarke but are yet to make an attempt to lure the winger out of Leeds United this summer.
Leeds are preparing themselves for a 16th consecutive year outside the Premier League following play-off failure earlier this month, and as is becoming the normality, Premier League clubs will be monitoring their players.
A report in the Yorkshire Evening Post details Tottenham’s interest in winger Clarke, but also states that the Champions League finalists are yet to force Leeds’ arm with an offer for the teenager.
Clarke, 18, broke onto the scene in late 2018 at Elland Road, quickly becoming a hit with the Elland Road fanbase due to his direct style and electric pace.
In 24 appearances under Marcelo Bielsa, Clarke scored two goals – against Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest – and registered a further two assists during a stunning period of form in December and January.
Illness stunted his progress towards the end of the season, with Clarke collapsing during Leeds’ 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough in early February.
Currently, Clarke has two years to run on his Elland Road deal, having signed professional terms in 2017.
You’d imagine that Tottenham may be getting tomorrow’s Champions League final out of the way before they take a look at what’s available in the transfer window.
A player like Clarke fits the Spurs profile in terms of he’s a talented Englishman, and if they get their hands on the winger, expect him to play.
You get the feeling it’ll be a tough few months for Leeds regarding Clarke.
