There are now four teams interested in signing Under 18 striker Reo Griffiths, according to the Mirror (via HITC).
The 17-year-old has already been linked with a move to Barcelona and Celtic in recent weeks, but it looks as though Italian pair Juventus and Roma are also in the running.
Barca’s interest was denied by local newspaper Mundo Deportivo last week, while the player himself has hinted at signing a new deal with us.
Speaking on an Instagram video recently (quotes via Football.London), Griffiths was asked about his contract and the forward said:
“I’ll be signing something soon, mate. Don’t you worry about that.”
Still, even if the player is keen to sign on the dotted line, the club should be looking to get him tied down to a professional deal as soon as possible.
His 28 goals for the Under 18s in all competitions last season show a player with a great deal of talent, and we certainly don’t want another situation like the one we had with Keanan Bennetts recently.
