Everton, Tottenham chasing Hoffenheim hot-shot Peniel Mlapa

Hoffenheim hot-shot Peniel Mlapa is being tracked by Everton and Tottenham.

The Sunday Mirror says the 19-year-old striker was named Young Player of the Year in Germany last season and is already rated one of the most talented prospects in the Bundesliga.

Mlapa, who was born in Togo but has elected to play for Germany, joined Hoffenheim this summer after a spell at 1860 Munich.

Toffees boss David Moyes considered a move at the end of last season before signing Jermaine Beckford. But he could reignite his interest in the New Year.
