Spurs starlet Troy Parrott, 17 – dubbed new Harry Kane – being eyed by Bayern Munich in shock transfer

The Sun Sports 2 weeks ago

TOTTENHAM starlet Troy Parrott is the subject of interest from Bayern Munich as they pursue yet another Premier League youngster.

Mail Online reports Bundesliga champions Bayern are preparing a shock move for 17-year-old Parrott, dubbed the new Harry Kane, having been impressed with his progress this season.

New Spurs manager Jose Mourinho will be hoping to hold on to Parrott, who joined Spurs aged 14 after they fought off the competition to sign the highly rated youngster from Dublin.

Sacked manager Mauricio Pochettino gave Parrott his first team debut by starting him against Colchester Utd in the Carabao Cup back in September.

However, Mourinho is famed for splashing the cash and buying in talent as he is the highest spending manager of all time, having paid a total of £1.4billion for players.

Mourinho’s reputation of signing players before promoting from within could mean that his appointment at Spurs may encourage Parrott to take up an opportunity with Bayern in Germany.

In the last two transfer windows Bayern had focused their efforts on trying to lure Callum Hudson-Odoi, 19, away from Chelsea but after he signed a new five-year deal in September they have turned their attention to Irish prospect Parrott.

Bayern are hoping to emulate the success of Borussia Dortmund, who signed England’s Jadon Sancho from Man City in 2017 and are closely monitoring the English market for future stars.

Teenager Parrott’s Tottenham contract expires in 2021 and Bayern are hoping to seal his arrival before Spurs are able to sign him up to a bumper long term deal.

Parrot made his senior Ireland debut last week against New Zealand and assisted his side’s second goal in a 3-1 win.

He has a prolific goalscoring record at youth level, finding the net 15 times in just 13 games for Spurs’ under-18 side.

His goalscoring exploits have drawn comparisons with Spurs striker and England captain Harry Kane but the similarities don’t stop there as both have a shared love of golf off the field.

Mourinho is first hoping to keep hold of Kane and then if he can convince Parrot to stay amid the interest from Bayern, the two could form a potent partnership up front for Spurs for years to come.
