Spurs join PL duo in keeping tabs on Norwich playmaker – report

Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton and Everton are all keeping tabs on a highly-rated Norwich City winger, ahead of the January transfer window.

Jacob Murphy has been one of the standout performers in this season’s Championship having scored six and assisted three of City’s 34 goals so far.

The striker is the Canaries’ top scorer this campaign, and has recently signed an improved contract keeping him at Carrow Road until 2021. Murphy was named the club’s Player of the Month for November in what proved to be a bad month for the club, who lost three Championship games and dropped out of the play-off reckoning.

The side have been inconsistent in the league this season, but their 5-0 win over Brentford on Saturday – in which Murphy netted in, ended a run of five consecutive defeats.

The 21-year-old, who has represented England at under-18, U19 and U20 level, has been tipped as one of the hottest prospects in the country, along with his twin-brother, Josh.

The pair are both on the books at Norwich, but it’s Jacob who appears to be attracting the interest from the Premier League.

Murphy developed through the youth squad with the East Anglia club, but has had a number of loan spells across the country with the likes of Blackpool, Colchester United and Coventry City.

It is to be expected that the Premier League trio will keep Murphy on their radar over the winter period, and an attempt of any sort of bid could be on the cards as soon as the window opens.
