Tottenham ahead of RB Leipzig in pursuit of Hoffenheim midfielder Nadiem Amiri

Tottenham are tracking Hoffenheim midfielder Nadiem Amiri.

BILD says Spurs had scouts check on Amiri as he scored twice for Germany in Thursday's 7-0 U21 Euros qualifying win against Azerbaijan.

Amiri has established himself as a first choice for Hoffenheim this season and his progress has attracted the interest of Spurs.

Also keen are Bundesiga high flyers RB Leipzig, where the 21 year-old is under consideration as a replacement for the Liverpool bound Naby Keita.

Amiri has just signed a new deal with Hoffenheim to 2020, but that won't put off Spurs if he continues his progress.
