Tottenham join Chelsea, Woolwich and Juventus in watching Hamburg teen striker sensation Jann-Fiete Arp
Tottenham have joined the growing number of clubs to have checked on Hamburg striker Jann-Fiete Arp.
The teenager, who has been prolific for Germany Under 17s - he scored seven goals in the European Championships and five in the World Cup - has broken into Hamburg's first team and scored twice in three appearances.
Juventus, Chelsea and Woolwich have already had scouts watch him this season and Tottenham have taken notice of the 17-year-old's progress too.
Arp scored to help Hamburg beat Stuttgart 3-1 last weekend, following on from his consolation strike in their defeat by Hertha Berlin the previous week, which made him the club's youngest ever goalscorer.
'I have a huge chance here and I'm really happy to be an integral part of the Bundesliga squad,' said Arp.
'The hype is honestly a bit scary to me. At the moment, I just want to focus on football.'
Arp has pinpointed Harry Kane as his role model and has similarities in style with the Tottenham and England centre forward.
He is under contract until 2019 but Hamburg, lying just above the relegation zone in the Bundesliga, are braced for clubs taking a keen interest in their latest academy star.
