TOTTENHAM are reportedly targeting a double swoop for midfield prospect Taylor Booth and his younger brother Zach.
The Daily Mail claim American Taylor impressed Jose Mourinho’s staff in December with a standout performance for Bayern Munich against Spurs in the UEFA Youth League.
The Bundesliga champions U19s claimed a 3-0 win over the youthful north Londoners to knock them out of the competition with the 18-year-old claiming two assists.
Taylor, who turns 19 at the end of this month, was snapped up by Bayern from Real Salt Lake, who still have his younger brother Zach on their books.
The USA U19 international, who boasts the ability to play across the centre of midfield, is under contract with the Bavarians until 2022.
Meanwhile, Spurs have also registered an interest in Taylor’s sibling Zach, who is still at Real Salt Lake’s academy.
The 16-year-old, who has been capped by USA at U17 level, had a trial at Tottenham before Christmas and the club are continuing to monitor his progress.
But Mourinho faces a fight from Leicester City, Norwich and Fulham following the midfielder’s driving performances during a tournament at St George’s Park in February.
Zach put scouts for Premier League clubs on red alert after he captained USA U17s against Spain, England and Denmark.
