Tottenham are reportedly one of four sides interested in raiding Latvian side Spartaks for young Nigerian forward Chikezie Miracle Nwaorisa.

Nwaorisa, 18, broke into Spartaks team in recent weeks but has made an immediate – scoring on his debut in a 2-1 defeat to FK Jelgava.

The report on Calciomercato also claims that Villarreal, Sampdoria and Croatian giants Dinamo Zagreb are watching the youngster, who would cost in the region of £1.3million.
