Numerous Premier League clubs are reportedly interested in signing Tottenham talent Oliver Skipp on loan, with Spurs potentially warming to the idea of sending out the midfielder.
According to the Daily Mail, Skipp is one of two Tottenham youngsters attracting interest from rival clubs ahead of the final few days of the January transfer window, with Djed Spence also a candidate to be loaned out by Spurs before Tuesday’s deadline.
Described as ‘perfect’ by former Norwich City manager Daniel Farke, Skipp has found it hard to break into the Tottenham starting XI despite being widely regarded as one of the club’s most exciting talents, with Antonio Conte believed to be a huge fan of the England youth international.
Even with midfield problems this season, Skipp has been restricted to just 12 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham, five of which have been starts. And as a result, a loan move could now be on the cards for the 22-year-old talent.
Indeed, a Premier League loan move could be ideal for Tottenham’s no. 4 with minutes so hard to come by for Skipp this season, and having flourished away from north London with Norwich, there’s every chance that the youngster can once again impress on a temporary transfer.
However, with so little time remaining, Tottenham are in a race against the clock to find a potential suitor for Skipp, even though interest already seems to be there for the England youngster, who is more than ready for a starting spot away from Spurs.
Skipp is a player who is clearly rated both at Tottenham and by rival clubs, and whilst the midfielder currently isn’t a regular under Conte, the potential and quality is there for something to happen in the future, which is why a loan spell would be ideal for the youngster this January.
As we know, Skipp has already flourished after being sent out on loan by Tottenham during his year at Norwich, and with Premier League interest there in the youngster, it might not take long for Spurs to strike a deal with a rival club to send the midfielder away for the next six months.
