Tottenham face competition for Santos whizkid Neilton.

Reports suggest Spurs chiefs have been in Brazil this week as they look to finalise a deal for Santos winger Neilton, says the Mirror.

The 19-year-old is still considered a work in progress but with him being out of contract, the North London club are reportedly looking to steal a march on their rivals and snap up the highly-rated youngster on the cheap.

Neilton has been linked with Chelsea in the past with Premier League rivals Manchester United also believed to be keeping a close eye on proceedings.
