Scouts from four major Premier League teams were present to watch the stars of tomorrow in Belgium U21's game against Italy on Monday.

With the senior team qualifying for the World Cup without losing a game and a deluge of talent storming the Premier League, Belgium has become the place to scour for top talent these days.

According to the Daily Mail, representatives from Spurs, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal were all present at the U21 clash on Monday, which Italy won thanks to a goal from Christian Battocchio.

According to the Mail the Premier League big-boys were there to run the rule over Youri Tielemans from Anderlecht.

All of the teams who sent scouts to the game have at least one Belgian player on their books.

Spurs have one of the largest contingent of Belgian players in the Premier League, with Nacer Chadli, Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele all plying their trade at What Hart Lane.

Chelsea have Kevin de Bruyne, Thibault Courtois, Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Thorgan Hazard - although only one, Eden Hazard, is a first team regular at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal can call upon Thomas Vermaelen, while Manchester United have £27.5 million new-boy Marouane Fellaini, who arrived at Old Trafford on deadline day.

They may also have another Belgian in Adnan Januzaj, should he opt to represent the Red Devils.
