Tottenham and West Ham eyeing English starlet

Published Add your comment

Tottenham and West Ham are looking to snap up English youngster, Moses Odubajo, according to the Daily Star.

The 20-year-old, currently playing in League One with Leyton Orient, has impressed throughout the 2013/14 campaign.

The Daily Star claims that newly appointed Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino, feels that the player can be moulded into top winger over the next few seasons as he looks to put his mark on the Tottenham squad.

West Ham are also keen to add attacking talent to their ranks this summer, with Sam Allardyce attempting to provide the entertaining football club owners, David Sullivan and David Gold, have told him they want to see next season.

Orient chairman, Bary Hearn, recently warned that Odubaju, who is a product of the club’s youth academy, “would take a king’s ransom” to purchase, as he does not want to break-up what is proving to be a successful squad, unless somebody is willing to pay up a significant fee.

The youngster was given the chance to play in the senior team two years ago and has since proved his worth, which could now see him move to one of England’s top division clubs.

Despite having only proved himself in England’s third division, Orient are unwilling to accept anything under £4million for the player, who provided twelve goals and 13 assists last season – a sizable price tag, but one Spurs and West Ham clearly feel worth paying.
