Report: Tottenham midfielder wanted by Premier League new boys

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Oliver Skipp is wanted by Premier League new boys Fulham, with a loan offer for the midfielder likely, according to The Guardian.

The 19-year-old Spurs man is widely acknowledged as one of the brightest prospects to come out of the club’s youth academy in recent years.

Skipp has featured for Tottenham in the Premier League under both Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho, with the current Lilywhites boss praising the teenager in the media last season.

The latest report suggests that Fulham, who were promoted back to the top flight through he Championship play-offs last week, want to land Skipp on loan for 2020-21.

Scott Parker knows the midfielder well from his time at Tottenham and a loan offer is likely, the report suggests.

Skipp has the likes of Gio Lo Celso, Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele and Eric Dier for competition in the centre of the park, with the potential for regular football at Spurs unlikely.

Fulham on the other hand will be looking to reinforce their squad and the Tottenham man could well end up getting more Premier League minutes under his best at Craven Cottage.

Skipp featured in seven Premier League games lat season for Spurs, but six of these were as a substitute.
