Boris Lum on Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur radar

Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing 16-year-old German midfield sensation Boris Lum from Hertha BSC.

According to a report by German outlet BILD, Boris Lum is gaining popularity in the market in the summer transfer window. Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in the German midfield sensation, with the latter meeting his representatives three times for talks over a possible move. In addition, the Hertha BSC wonderkid is a target for Ajax and Bayern Munich.

Who is Boris Lum?

Boris Lum is the latest highly-rated German wonderkid to rise in prominence in his homeland. The country is witnessing the rise of the latest generation of world-beaters, with highly-rated prospects like Maximilian Beier, Youssoufa Moukoko, and Brajan Gruda attracting interest from abroad.

As for Lum, he is a native of Berlin and spent the early years of his youth career with Borussia Friedrichsfelde and Union Berlin. The German midfield sensation has been with Hertha BSC since 2016 and has gone from strength to strength in the last eight years at the German club.

The 16-year-old represents Germany’s under-17 side internationally and has broken into the under-19 team at Hertha BSC. In addition, Cristian Fiel has compelled the club to bring him to first-team training sessions. Meanwhile, the youngster’s progress has not gone unnoticed, alerting several high-profile clubs, including Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

Premier League beckons?

Manchester City’s interest in Boris Lum is understandable. The Premier League champions constantly scour the market for highly-rated prodigies, with recent reports linking them with Han Willhoft-King, Harrison Miles, and Mikey Moore, among others. Lum has now emerged as a viable target.

As for Tottenham, they have started focusing on recruiting highly-rated prospects since Ange Postecoglou arrived at the club. Luka Vuskovic, Lucas Bergvall, and Archie Gray have already joined Tottenham, with Lum now emerging as a viable target. Meanwhile, the 16-year-old German midfield sensation’s representatives have already met the North London club thrice.

However, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur face stiff competition in the race to secure Boris Lum’s services, with Ajax and Bayern Munich also keen on signing him. It will be interesting to see if the 16-year-old moves abroad in the coming weeks amid the emerging links.
