Tottenham interested in Alex Scott transfer raid after £25m-rated winger shines for Bristol City against Man City

TOTTENHAM are eyeing up a summer move for Bristol City whizkid Alex Scott.

England youth starlet Scott, 19, shone in the Robins’ 3-0 defeat at home to Manchester City this week in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Jack Grealish described the midfielder as a “top, top talent” on social media after the game.

Scott, who has racked up 75 games already for Bristol, has plenty of admirers in the Premier League, including Crystal Palace and West Ham.

Tottenham have a history of signing young British talent and have been following the progress of £25milion-rated Scott for some time.

The Guernsey-born youngster has represented England at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 level.

He is admired by Under-21s boss Lee Carsley too but will likely not receive his first Young Lions call-up until after competing in the Under-20 World Cup, which takes place between May and June in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, Antonio Conte looks set to miss Saturday’s Premier League trip to Wolves as he continues his recovery from gallbladder surgery back in Italy.

He is expected to return this weekend though and take the team for their crucial Champions League Last-16 second leg against AC Milan on Wednesday.

Spurs lost the first leg in Milan 1-0 two weeks ago following Brahim Diaz’s winner.


Wing-back Emerson Royal hopes to shake off the minor knee injury that kept him out of Wednesday’s 1-0 fifth-round FA Cup defeat at Sheffield United.

The Brazilian, 24, was nominated for the Premier League player of the month award for February after a fine run of form.

This marks a significant turnaround for the defender who had been struggling to impress supporters.
