Newcastle United, Tottenham make approach for Alex Scott

Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing 19-year-old midfielder Alex Scott ahead of next season.

According to a report by GiveMeSport, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing Alex Scott. The 19-year-old has been the talk of the town because of his heroics in the EFL Championship. Scott has been performing on a consistent basis in the ongoing season, and it has attracted a lot of attention from across the globe.

The 19-year-old started off at FC Guernsey before joining Bristol City in the winter of 2020. In 18 months, Scott made it into the Bristol City first team and has been a regular in their senior team since. He has over 80 appearances for the first team and has 13 goal contributions in total.

Scott has been Bristol’s most important player in the ongoing season, having made 42 appearances in all competitions. The 19-year-old has a total of seven goal contributions in all competitions. He has missed only one league game all season long.

The England Under-20 star’s contract at the club ends in the summer of 2025. However, despite having quite a few years left in his contract, he might be on his way out in the summer amidst interest from big clubs across Europe. Bristol could still have his services for another season with clubs willing to loan him back to the Championship side for his personal development.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United and Tottenham are set to go all out to acquire Scott’s services. Both the clubs are impressed with what they have seen of the 19-year-old while playing in the Championship. They are looking to pen a deal for the former Bristol midfielder ahead of next season.

Spurs have once again failed to meet the expectations of winning a major title. And, they are likely to part ways with manager Antonio Cone. Tottenham are expected to start a new project in the summer. And adding the 19-year-old to their rank can help eventually make this project a success.

Meanwhile, the Magpies, who are trying to build a world-class squad, would love to have Scott in their ranks. The 19-year-old can add depth to their midfield. And, eventually, he can become a regular for Newcastle as they look to dominate domestic and European football.

Scott is a versatile player who can play in multiple positions and will surely be a great asset for the club that ends up signing him. The England Under-20 star is currently rated at £25 million. But his price could increase to £30 million given the amount of interest in his services.

With clubs across Europe ready to enter a bidding war, the English prodigy might end up costing around £30 million. Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see who ends up having his services ahead of next season.
