QPR and Middlesbrough in battle to sign Tottenham youngster

QPR and Middlesbrough are reportedly battling it out to sign Luke Amos from Tottenham.

West London Sport reported last month that Rangers would look to sign the midfielder from Spurs this summer.


And The Athletic’s Tottenham correspondent Charlie Eccleshare says Amos is now close to a move to the R’s or Middlesbrough.

Eccleshare suggests Amos, 23, will definitely be leaving Tottenham.

Amos recently completed a season-long loan at QPR, where he often struggled for fitness and form during his time with the R’s.

But West London Sport say Rangers manager Mark Warburton believes the midfielder has huge potential and would like to keep him.

Amos moved to Loftus Road last summer after battling his way back to fitness following a cruciate injury.


He spent most of the season before on the sidelines, having suffered the injury in September 2018 – just weeks after making his first-team debut for Spurs.

That debut was given to him by former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, who was known to rate Amos highly.

But it appears that current Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is willing to let him go.

It remains to be seen whether QPR’s interest in Amos affects the chances of Ebere Eze moving to Tottenham.

Rangers wanting Amos is bound to lead to speculation that he could be part of a swap deal which sees Eze move to north London.
