Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the talented young Gambian striker Adama Bojang.
According to a report from Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are looking to sign 18-year-old attacker Adama Bojang, dubbed “The Gambian Hurricane”. And they will face competition from Serie A giants Napoli as well.
The 18-year-old is highly rated, and he has a big future ahead of him. He could prove to be a quality long-term investment for the north London club if they manage to secure his services in the coming months. Tottenham certainly need to add more depth and quality to their attack during the summer transfer window. And the 18-year-old would be a long-term investment.
The north London club have been overly reliant on Harry Kane this season. Players like Son Heung-min and summer signing Richarlison have failed to hit the ground running, with the duo being largely underwhelming. Bringing in another goalscorer will help share the burden with Kane, and it would improve Tottenham as a unit.
The 18-year-old Gambian striker has caught the attention of a number of clubs with his performances during the under-20 AFCON. It will be interesting to see if Tottenham can compete with Napoli and secure the 18-year-old’s signature. Interestingly, the teenager is dubbed “The Gambian Hurricane”.

The north London club will certainly have more financial resources compared to the Italian club. But Napoli are well placed to win the league title this season, and they are likely to be in the Champions League next year. That could give them an edge in the transfer race, especially if Tottenham failed to finish in the Champions League position.
The north London club recently sacked manager Antonio Conte after a few disappointing performances and his explosive outburst criticising the club hierarchy and the players. Tottenham are currently dependent on Cristian Stellini and Ryan Mason to guide them to a strong finish to the season.
Securing Champions League qualification would be crucial to signing talented young players like Bojang and it remains to be seen where Tottenham finish in the end. Arsenal and Manchester City are pretty much guaranteed to finish in the top four, and the likes of Newcastle United and Manchester United are now better placed to overtake Tottenham.
