Tottenham reportedly set to beat Liverpool to 6’2″ teenage sensation this month

According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham are closing in on their first signing of the winter transfer window, as an £850,000 move for 18-year-old Stevenage centre-back Ben Wilmot is nearing completion.

The teenage sensation has attracted the likes of Liverpool and Southampton due to his eye-catching performances for the League 2 side’s development squad, but it’s Spurs that are now set to land him.

Wilmot has played just a league game this term having just signed his professional deal last April, but he could be a one for the future considering his huge potential.

Standing at an impressive 6ft 2in, Wilmot has the physical requirements needed in a Premier League defender.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino’s track record of getting the best out of young English talents means the teenager has a chance of becoming a future star for Tottenham.

Dele Alli remains a success story given how he came from the lower tiers to become an instant topflight hit, and just maybe Wilmot could be next in line.
