Spurs ahead of Arsenal, Liverpool for Peterborough kid Da Silva Lopes

Tottenham Hotspur are leading the race to sign Leo Da Silva Lopes from Peterborough United.

Reports suggest that Spurs have been scouting the 17-year-old Portuguese-born attacking midfielder in recent times as he continues to impress in League One.

Da Silva Lopes has already made 23 first-team appearances for the Posh, having been plucked from local junior club Powerleague FC, and is being tipped for the top.

It is understood that Tottenham's North London rivals Arsenal, as well as Liverpool and Southampton, have been watching the youngster closely and all are expected to make a move for his services in January.
