Football London have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur have tabled a contract offer to young striker Shayon Harrison this summer, but are yet to be told of a decision.
The 21-year-old has been on loan at Australian A-League side Melbourne City, where he has found the back of the net four times in 11 appearances. He has been playing up front as well as out wide.
Prior to his loan, Harrison had managed one senior appearance for the north Londoners while his stats in the second string were eye-catching to say the least. Indeed, he has 26 goals in 50 Under-23 appearances.
It is no surprise, then, that Harrison has been offered a new deal to extend his current contract and keep him at Tottenham – despite Spurs boasting new 17-year-old signing Kion Etete and Troy Parrott.
With Fernando Llorente leaving and Vincent Janssen expected to depart the club at some point this summer, Tottenham need a new striker to act as back-up to Harry Kane.
Spurs are likely to want to bring in a new striker to act as the England skipper’s cover, but Harrison will be hoping he can show Mauricio Pochettino during pre-season that he has what it takes to replace Kane.
It remains to be seen if Harrison will sign a new deal, as he could be on the lookout for a different kind of challenge.
