Under Mauricio Pochettino and head of recruitment Paul Mitchell, Tottenham Hotspur have attempted to expand their scouting reach across the continent of Europe. Part of those efforts seem to have lead them to Denmark. According to The Daily Mail, Spurs have their sights set on Brondby's 17-year-old starlet Armend Aslani.

Aslani, who is of Danish and Macedonian decent, is a talented forward who is able to play as a striker or a wide player.

The club is reportedly set to offer £345,000 for the youngster, but could have some competition for his signature. Brondby are currently having major financial issues and could be forced to sell Aslani, who is undoubtedly their most valuable asset. The club almost went bankrupt two years ago and while their finances have recovered they still could use the infusion of funds.

As with any emerging talent, little is actually known about the player and what he could potentially bring to Tottenham. One this is certain though, all of the top clubs around the world engage in these types of signings. It's an encouraging sign to see the club willing to expand their efforts to other parts of the world to try and discover the next great star.
