US will battle England for Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers

Tottenham defender Cameron Carter-Vickers is a target for USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

The Daily Mail says he qualifies for the USA through his dad, Howard Carter, a basketball player for the Denver Nuggets and Dallas Mavericks.

But having come through England's academy system, Carter-Vickers is firmly on the radar of the FA.

The 18-year-old has been tipped for stardom by Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, who said earlier this week: "For me, he can be one of the best centre backs in England."

He is yet to make a senior appearance for America, which means he is still eligible for England.
