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.
