Reports have it that Spurs are the latest to have checked out the teenage forward ahead of a potential swoop after Arsenal took a keen interest in his development, while Crystal Palace have also watched the talented youngster.

The 18-year-old has been in contract talks over a new deal with the Addicks but has yet to sign an extension.

Crystal Palace assistant boss Keith Millen – speaking before Christmas – said:
“He’s one that has been flagged up. I’ve been at a couple of games and he’s played.

“If you are scoring and creating goals it is the best way to grab the headlines. It is harder for defenders. If forwards and wide men are doing well they are going to get attention.

“It is very rare to get an 18-year-old in the Premier League unfortunately. It doesn’t really happen.

“But even in the Championship it is hard to hold a place in a team. He is obviously doing something right because the Championship is a real test of people.

“If someone is playing week in and week out at a young age then it is not rocket science. Premier League teams will get that flagged up and keep an eye on those lads.”
