Tottenham are keeping close tabs on Leicester City winger Harvey Barnes ahead of the summer window, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The national newspaper claim Spurs have targeted the 21-year-old attacker as they look to strengthen their squad as part of a major overhaul following consecutive fallow windows.

The Telegraph report Tottenham are focusing on youthful, homegrown talent aged under 23 with the potential to develop under Mauricio Pochettino.

Football Insider verdict:

Barnes certainly ticks a lot of boxes for Pochettino, a manager who likes to work with young players who are malleable and may respond better to his methods than more mature footballers who’ve spent a long time at the top level. Barnes is learning his trade but has demonstrated this season that he is starting to harness achievement with his massive potential. He was excellent while on loan at Championship outfit West Brom in the first half of the season, scoring nine goals and supplying eight assists from 28 matches, and providing vim and vigour to the attack that has been sorely missed since his exit. Barnes is now starting to establish himself in the Leicester side and has started seven consecutive league matches, playing a crucial role in those three wins out of the last four games. He would be a fine signing for Spurs, although might need time to get up to speed and be at the same level as the likes of Son Heung-Min and Dele Alli.

In other Tottenham transfer news, it can be revealed that Daniel Levy has put the block on Spurs superstar quitting with unexpected behind-the-scenes move.
