By London correspondent Tony Hughes
Tottenham are eyeing a summer bid for Jordan Lukaku, according to a report.
The left-back, 21, is set to leave Belgian club Oostende at the end of the season and several European clubs are watching him closely.
According to a report in Belgian publication La Derniere Heure, Spurs have joined Arsenal, Everton and Watford in closely monitoring Lukaku, who is the brother of Romelu Lukaku.
The youngster has a year remaining on his Oostende contract and the club know that they will have to sell him this summer or risk losing him for nothing in 12 months’ time.
Lukaku is said to be keen to move on to a new club and is interested in following his brother to the Premier League.
