Heard of Tommy Rowe before? I didn’t but it appears that the two north London clubs Arsenal and Tottenham Hotsppur had heard and followed him and aboth are eager to land the Stockport County striker in the summer.
The 19-year old striker is reportedly being chased by both the clubs and County manager Jim Gannon is finding it tough to believe that the player wouldn’t be lured away by top Premiership clubs soon.
Tommy has got everything. Physically he’s a supreme athlete with Premiership fitness. Technically he’s excellent. Tactically he knows exactly how to play the floating winger role and mentally he’s just been able to step up. I’ve said before, and I’ve told him personally, I think he’s got a great future.
But where does that future lie: the Emirates or the White Hart Lane?
