Juventus eyeing up Tottenham four-goal teenage sensation


Juventus have begun to scout the Tottenham 17-year-old wonderkid Troy Parrott after the youngster bagged four goals in their UEFA Youth League victory on Tuesday night, claims a report.

Parrott, who stands at six-foot-one despite being only 17 years of age was granted his first-team debut under Mauricio Pochettino in the third round of the league cup versus Colchester – a match in which Spurs would go on to lose via penalty shoot-out.

The Irish forward has been a regular in the country’s internatonal setup, graduating all the way up to the under-21 classification despite his tender age.

Three goals in three at that level, along with his remarkable four-goal performance in Spurs’ 9-2 hammering of Red Star Belgrade in the UEFA Youth League has not caught the attention of Serie A heavyweight Juventus.

Italian publication Calcio Mercato (via Goal.com) report that the Turin club have commenced scouting of the marksman, and will be keeping close tabs on how the starlet progresses.

Meanwhile, Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle says the squad synergy has been ruined by four or five players at Spurs.
