Tottenham want to raid bitter rivals for the 18-year-old defensive prodigy

Tottenham are interested in securing the services of Chelsea youth product Josh Acheampong.

The North London club are planning a major transfer window in which they will undergo a major overhaul. Quite a few of their players could be on the move and they will look to add some quality players to their roster.

Josh Acheampong’s impressive emergence has caught the attention of Tottenham and according to Miguel Delaney via TBR Football, Spurs want to raid Chelsea for the signature of the teenage defensive sensation.

Acheampong has moved up the ranks at Chelsea and is currently part of the Under-18 set-up. During the current season, he was included in the first-team squad several times and recently made his first-team debut against Spurs. The teenager is capable enough to play at the back of anything and his impressive rise has attracted a lot of interest.

Under normal circumstances, the Blues might never have considered the idea of ​​offloading the defensive sensation. However, they find they need to sell to meet the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules. They need to balance their books and firing homegrown stars will help them significantly as they will be recorded as pure profits.

Acheampong has huge potential and he could develop into a quality defender in the long term. As a result, Spurs are keen on his signature and want to take advantage of Chelsea’s financial problems.

It seems Conor Gallagher may not be the only academy graduate to leave the club this summer. The 18-year-old full-back could help raise a significant amount of money this summer.

He would be a long-term investment for Tottenham and he could develop into a key first-team player for the north London club in the coming seasons.
