RB Leipzig teen Luka Reischl wanted by Spurs, Man City

RB Leipzig teen Luka Reischl is a target for Tottenham and Manchester City.

The Daily Mail says the 16-year-old forward is regarded as one of the most promising youngsters in Europe and is attracting widespread interest.

Premier League sides would usually scout a young player for at least a season before deciding whether to pursue their interest, but due to a forthcoming rule change regarding Brexit, Spurs and City are among the teams being forced into making a swifter decision on Reischl, who has scored 63 goals in 41 academy appearances in Austria.

The post-Brexit transfer regulations mean English clubs interested in the Austria Under-16 international must attempt to sign the teenager during the forthcoming summer window or risk missing out on the striker.
