Norwich City is reportedly eyeing Tottenham’s young defender Maxwell Statham.

The Mirror claimed on Friday morning the Canaries are in pole position to swoop this summer if the 18-year-old centre back leaves Spurs.

Statham has recently trained with Mauricio Pochettino’s first team but appears to be heading out of the club and actually featured for City’s development squad in a 4-0 Premier League Two defeat against Wolves last month.

Statham is also on the radar of Sunderland, Brentford and Nottingham Forest but City ‘lead the chase’ for the son of former Spurs’ defender Brian Statham.

The Canaries loan move for Marcus Edwards may have bombed last season but Stuart Webber and Daniel Farke are believed to have built up a good relationship with the North London heavyweights.
