According to The Mirror, Premier League duo Newcastle United and Southampton are hoping to wrap up a bargain deal for Recoe Martin.
Norwich City are also in the hunt for Milton Keynes Dons striker Martin, who is highly rated by the club.
The young striker is yet to sign professional terms with Milton Keynes, making the League Two side vulnerable if other clubs come calling.
And his comparisons with ex-MK Dons midfielder and current Tottenham Hotspur ace Dele Alli should have Newcastle, Southampton and Norwich fans excited.
Alli started his career at Milton Keynes, scoring 24 times in 88 games despite his young age. Now, the 22-year-old is a regular for Tottenham and England.
With well over 150 appearances to his name for Spurs, as well as more than 50 goals, Alli is regarded as one of the best young players in the Premier League.
Martin has been dubbed “the next Dele Alli” (as per The Mirror), perhaps unsurprisingly considering they come from the same club.
But while this comparison may have been unavoidable, it shows just how talented and highly rated Martin is.
The 18-year-old has been firing in the goals at youth level, including five in 17 minutes for the under-18 side against Leyton Orient recently.
Newcastle and Southampton could secure a shrewd transfer if they win the race for Martin.
