Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly set their sights on Middlesbrough’s Hayden Hackney.


Spurs were mentioned by The Independent earlier this week as one of the teams planning to enter the competition for the 21-year-old.


In addition to Tottenham, Hackney is being considered by Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United.


According to trade guru Dean Jones, “it is true that Spurs have interest” in the highly-regarded Boro player.


Jones, however, attempted to downplay rumors that Tottenham is the front-runner to recruit Hackney in a post on GiveMeSport.

Additionally, he asserted that a July transfer was more likely to occur and that a January departure for the player was doubtful.


Following his goal against Chelsea, Hayden Hackney is the talk of the town, according to Jones. And it might not be too long until he’s putting himself to the test each week against clubs that caliber.


The talk is that Spurs are the team most likely to sign him, but that isn’t entirely true because Middlesbrough won’t view anyone as likely to do so right now.


It’s acknowledged that he will most likely make a transfer in the summer, and the Spurs are definitely interested.


“However, since this is just the beginning of the process, there is still room for many other teams to contend for his signature.”


Tottenham Hotspur has Hayden Hackney on their sights.

Spurs have gained a reputation in recent years for bringing in outstanding prospects and developing them into dependable first-team players, as evidenced by the acquisitions of Pape Matar Sarr and Destiny Udogie.


Without a doubt, Hackney is a great opportunity. It speaks much about a 21-year-old Championship player’s exceptional talent and potential that he has been linked to some of the biggest teams in England.


It’s therefore not strange to read such optimistic conjecture regarding Hackney, whose work over the last 18 months has kept Boro in the running for promotion.


The defensive midfielder helped his team qualify for the playoffs the previous season with 36 Championship appearances.


Additionally, Hackney has made 16 league appearances this season, and Michael Carrick’s team is still only a few points behind of the top six.


But the prodigy from Redcar has truly come into his own on the big stage at the Carabao Cup.


Midweek, Boro defeated Chelsea in the semi-final first leg at the Riverside Stadium thanks to a goal by Hackney that was the lone goal of the match.


Jones is correct when he suggests that this is more likely to be a summer move, given how much the Teesside team has to play for this season.
