Tottenham Hotspur may be about to lose one of their brightest prospects with Lyon reportedly close to signing Reo Griffiths, according to Radio Scoop.

The striker starlet, 18, hit the headlines earlier this year for a four-goal haul against Arsenal’s Under-18s.

Griffiths did sign a third year scholarship deal with Spurs this summer but could now depart for France.

He had garnered interest from the likes of RB Leipzig, Barcelona and Celtic previously but now it’s Lyon who are leading the chase.

Griffiths drew attention from a number of top European clubs earlier this year.

A report from Radio Scoop suggests, despite the club already having Amine Gouiri and Myziane Maolida as talented young attackers on their books, they could finalise a deal for Griffiths in the coming days.

Although it is also added the speculation about the Spurs starlet could be used to push Maolida into signing a new deal with with Lyon.
