Tottenham Hotspur are interested in West Brom winger Oliver Burke, as per a report by Birmingham Live.

The Scottish international has not been first-team regular for the Baggies since his move in August 2017. However, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino sees him as one for the future.

The 21-year-old started his career started his career at Nottingham Forest and rose through the youth ranks at the City Ground. Burke had a brief loan stint at League One side Bradford City in 2015 before going onto play 31 times for the Reds’ senior side and scored 6 goals.

His breakthrough into the Forest first-team as a youngster attracted the attention of Bundesliga side RB Leipzig. They side forked out a fee of around £13 million to land the promising midfielder for their debut season in the German top flight.

Burke started life in Germany well and scored his first goal for Leipzig in his second game for them against FC Koln. However, for the rest of the campaign he was mainly used as a substitute.

After just one single season at Leipzig, Burke returned to Englandlast year to join West Brom in the Premier League for a reported fee of around £15 million. However, a hamstring injury last season meant he could only play a handful of games as the Baggies were relegated to the Championship.

Burke is obviously a promising talent and it would be a shame for West Brom if they were to lose him in January with Tottenham Hotspur keen on signing him up.
