'Keep a very close eye': Journalist shares transfer update on reported Tottenham target likened to Jack Grealish

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Bristol City midfielder Alex Scott at various points this year.

At the end of February, London World claimed that Spurs were leading the race to sign the 19-year-old.

The Mirror repeated the claim in April, also reporting that Tottenham were up against Leeds for his signature.

That report claimed the Robins were looking for £10million for the talented teenager.

And in August, football.london Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold said the Lilywhites had scouted Scott heavily.

Now, with the January transfer window looming, Tottenham will have another opportunity to swoop.

On Thursday, CBS journalist Ben Jacobs backed Scott to make a Premier League move “sooner rather than later”.

On Twitter, he urged fans to “keep a very close eye” on the youngster’s transfer situation.

“He can float around the football pitch”

Scott enjoyed a superb breakthrough campaign last term, making 38 Championship appearances for the Robins.

The Guernsey-born prodigy also registered four goals and two assists in the league.

As per Bristol World, Scott has earned comparisons with Aston Villa and England ace Jack Grealish.

This is ‘due to dribbling style, both being fouled often, and simply the way that both wear their socks. Hence the ‘Guernsey Grealish’ label.’

And Guernsey FC boss Tony Vance told the same outlet that Scott “has got all the right attributes in terms of nothing fazes him.

“He delivers at whatever level you play him at… He’s got tremendous balance when he moves.

“He can float around the football pitch. He’s looking like a No.10-type player but things can change.”

This season, Scott has continued his good work, making 25 appearances in all competitions.

He’s surely due a big move – question is, will Tottenham be the club to grant him his big break?

Spurs could certainly do with reinforcements in attack in wake of injuries to players in those positions.

At the same time, would Antonio Conte be willing to throw an inexperienced player (as far as PL football is concerned) at the deep end?
