Following reports from BBC Sport, it seems as though we will be seeing Jack Clarke in a Tottenham Hotspur shirt come next season, subject to a £10m fee. But what does the Leeds United winger bring to the London side?
Tottenham haven’t signed a player since Brazilian winger Lucas Moura walked into Wembley in January 2018, but now there’s another wide man coming to the club.
Who is Jack Clarke?
At 18-years-old, the York-born winger made 25 appearances for United last season, helping them to the play-off semi-finals, where they lost to Derby County.
Known for his ability to skip past full-backs with ease, Clarke perhaps surprisingly has some final quality, despite only four goal contributions. He especially thrives in playing low balls across the six-yard box, something that could be dangerous when you have Harry Kane on the end of them.
As with most 18-year-old players, Jack Clarke is going to lack experience. Although he played 25 games last season, 20 of those came from the bench and it could take time for him to bed into Spurs’ starting eleven.
Nevertheless, £10m is a steal for a player that clearly has the quality to go on and make it big, both in the Premier League and potentially for England.
