Celtic are reportedly in the hunt to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s centre-forward Reo Griffiths this summer, according to reports from The Daily Mirror.
Although, the British tabloid claimed in their live transfer blog that the likes of Barcelona, Juventus, and Roma are also keeping close tabs on the striker, who may face the exit door at Tottenham if the club fail to meet his contract demands.
The striker has been in brilliant form at youth level this season, netting 34 goals across all competition for the Under-18s.
He’s very highly-rated young striker and would be a brilliant addition to Celtic’s rank if Brendan Rodgers can see to his signing ahead of the reported interest from Europe’s biggest hitters.
Although, it was at under-18s level, where the player has proven to have a real eye for goal and if he can stick with this performance in the Tottenham academy set-up, then he is bound to have a very promising career.
To sign the player, Celtic won’t have to break the bank for the player as he is yet to earn his first professional contract with Tottenham, so there could be a little risk in signing the player as he’s yet to make it to Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team fold this just concluded season.
Although Celtic are perhaps the most likely club to be able to offer Griffiths a clear route to the first team squad, there’s little chance that Rodgers will be able to tempt him to move to Glasgow over Rome, Barcelona or Turin.
Even staying at Spurs could be a more attractive option for the 17-year-old.
The England youth international has huge potential and it would be a real shock to see him sign for Celtic this summer.
