According to media reports, two Premier League clubs are among a host of sides tracking young Walsall striker Mitchel Candlin, as the 17 year-old continues to impress for the Saddlers' Under-18s and development sides.

The Sun reports that Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are both keeping tabs on the striking prospect, who penned his first professional contract earlier this year, with the clubs considering an offer as they look to add the brightest and best to their squads.

Spurs and West Ham have detailed scouting reports on the six-foot striker who is a natural goalscorer and possesses the all round game to have a hugely successful career.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has forged a reputation for giving young players a chance instead just making big money signings. Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Kyle Walker-Peters and Josh Onomah have all made the breakthrough during the Argentine’s time at White Hart Lane.

The Hammers also boast a history of promoting young talent with the likes of Mark Noble, Reece Oxford, Declan Rice.

Mitchel, who has already made his first-team debut, is under contract with the Saddlers until the summer of 2020 and looks to be one of the brightest prospects to rise through the ranks over the last few years.
