NextGen star Alex Pritchard are said to be leading the chase for one of Tottenham Hotspurs’ most coveted youth stars, , according to the London Evening Standard.

Reports emanating from the capital suggest that the Reds are considering a move for Pritchard, who is yet to sign a new deal with Spurs as he weighs up his future in North London, having yet to break into the first team squad under Andre-Villas Boas.

The attacking midfielder, who turns 20 in May, has caught the eye on numerous occasions whilst starring for Spurs in the series this season; most notably in their 4-1 defeat of , and scoring twice versus German side .

It is believed that , newly installed as the Reds’ reserve team coach, may attempt to convince Pritchard that his future lies in Liverpool, having been the youngster’s youth team coach at Spurs. Indeed it was Inglethorpe who presided over the impressive NextGen victory versus Barcelona, and has been key in the player’s development.

Should Liverpool swoop for Pritchard after his contract expires, no transfer fee would have to be paid; however the Reds would be forced to pay a compensation fee to Spurs, due to the player being developed through their academy.

If no fee can be agreed, an independent tribunal will decide the final amount.

Check out Pritchard in action below, scoring two excellent goals.

        LOL now thats such a stupid comment . Arsenal have been bringing through great youth for years ….. and what happens ? they leave in order to join a team capable of winning . Arsenal have a great manager too , we have a doughnut !
        Honestly , are there really fools out there soooooo naive they think the fair play thing will make one bit of difference ? wake up pal
        Be a real fan , get off your ar$e and try to get our owners to give us a decent manager , instead of being an apathetic fool and swallowing all the bull they send our way …. or we will end up like Villa

    I was thinking ‘he must be yet another Brenda midget’ and then i clicked on the video and he IS! Has Brenda got a ‘Napoleon’ complex or something where he doesn’t sign players who are taller than him?
