Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig are reportedly chasing Tottenham’s highly-rated teenage striker Reo Griffiths.

Griffiths, who has been dubbed ‘the new Harry Kane’, enhanced his ever growing reputation with a hat-trick in Spurs’ Premier League Youth Cup semi-final win over north London rivals Arsenal at the weekend.

The 17-year-old, who has scored 20 goals for Spurs’ U-18 side so far this season, is being tipped as the latest youngster to come through their youth ranks and eventually progress to the first team, following in the footsteps of prolific frontman Kane.

Griffiths, who has featured for England at youth level, is yet to turn professional and the report on ESPN claims that he is being watched by a number of top European clubs with a view to a move.

One of those clubs is Leipzig, who are said to have been alerted to Griffiths’ talents by former Spurs head of recruitment Paul Mitchell, who now holds a similar role with the German side.
