Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly been joined in the hunt for Danish starlet Wahid Faghir by Tottenham Hotspur.
According to the Sunday Mirror (print edition, 28/5, page 75), the north Londoners are now looking to sign the hugely talented 17-year-old striker.
Apparently Faghir is on Jose Mourinho’s radar, and it’s also claimed Leicester City have already seen a seven-figure bid rejected.
Faghir’s stock has really been rising over the past 12 months or so.
The starlet has been making waves for his club Vejle BK in the Danish Superliga.
He now has eight goals in 36 first-team appearances, as well as four assists.
His play style has earned him comparisons to legendary Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
News of Spurs’ interest comes after Calciomercato had reported at the start of March that Wolves were interested in the youngster.
It was claimed by the Italian publication that Waghir was valued at around £2.1 million, but that is likely to increase going forwards.
Wolves should probably look elsewhere
Perhaps Wolves should allow Tottenham a clear run at goal on this one.
It seems Faghir has an extremely bright future ahead of him, and it’s very encouraging how he already has a lot of minutes in senior football under his belt.
Calciomercato’s report from a few weeks ago claims Faghir has ‘excellent basic technique’, which is perhaps further indication of his promise.
But one gets the feeling that Wolves could probably do with someone a little older.
Nuno Espirito Santo already has Fabio Silva to fit the ‘youngster with potential’ profile and doesn’t really need another.
