Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs enter bidding war for ‘next Theo Walcott’

Published Add your comment

Tottenham have entered the race to sign young English prospects Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Connor Wickham, according to talkSPORT.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been touted as the next Theo Walcott and has been linked to a whole host of clubs since bursting on to the scene recently.

Wickham has also been linked with the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal previously and Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp wants one to become the future of Spurs’ attack at White Hart Lane.

It seems as though the Southampton winner will be first prize in the three-way battle and Arsenal want their future team to include Chamberlain and Walcott on either flank.

Although the Saints are reluctant to sell, they are hoping to play Redknapp, Arsene Wenger and Roy Hodgson off against each other to hike up his price.

Liverpool are currently building for the future and, having already signed two 16-year-olds earlier on this month, will identify the best young talent in the country to bring to Anfield.

Liverpool will charge Damian Comolli with this task and have outlined Arsenal’s academy blueprint as something to follow.

Whoever loses out on Chamberlain are then expected to raid Ipswich and battle it out for England under-21 ace Wickham, who is also a star in the making.
