Norwich, West Ham among scramble for Gillingham defender Jack Tucker

Gillingham centre-back Jack Tucker is attracting Premier League interest.

Daily Mail says Norwich are among clubs monitoring young Gillingham defender Tucker.

The 20-year-old centre-back, who can also operate as a full-back, has featured 28 times for the Gills in League One, which has proved to be a break-out year for the defender.

City's pedigree in developing young talent is well-documented, with their first-team currently containing four academy graduates on a consistent basis, with a fifth in Adam Idah also on the cusp of the squad.

Tucker is also wanted by Leeds United, Celtic, West Ham and Southampton.
