Tottenham keen on summer move for 18-year-old versatile midfielder

Tottenham Hotspur remain keen on signing Archie Gray from Leeds United this summer. 

According to a report from Football Insider, they want to sign the versatile 18-year-old who has impressed their scouts with his performances this past season.

The England under-21 international has been a key player for Leeds making 52 appearances in all competitions. He is versatile enough to operate as a central midfielder as well as a makeshift full-back.

He could provide cover to Pedro Porro and slot into the midfield role as well. Gray is highly rated within the country and he is expected to develop into a top-class player. It will be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to make a move for him in the coming weeks.

He has a contract with Leeds United until 2028 and he’s unlikely to be a cheap acquisition. Leeds could demand a premium for him, and it remains to be seen how the situation develops.

The report states that Tottenham have a concrete interest in signing the 18-year-old and they view him as a quality long-term prospect. Tottenham have done well to nurture young players in the past and they could help fulfil his tremendous potential as well. If they can sign him for a reasonable amount of money in the coming weeks, the move might look like a bargain in the long term.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are expected to part ways with players like Emerson Royal and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer. They will need to replace those players adequately and someone like Gray could slot into both roles and fill the void.

The opportunity to move to the Premier League can be quite exciting and the young Leeds United prospect could be tempted. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops.
