Teenage Benfica forward Jota was reportedly watched up close by scouts from Tottenham Hotspur and Bayer Leverkusen in midweek.

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly sent scouts to watch Benfica's £85m-rated forward Jota in action against Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday evening.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is preparing for a big summer in North London after going two windows without strengthening his squad.

A number of players have been linked with a move to Tottenham, including Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon, and Portuguese daily A Bola claims that Jota is another possible target.

The 19-year-old has appeared three times for Benfica's senior side this season, most recently in midweek when playing more than an hour of the 3-0 Europa League win against Zagreb.

Tottenham scouts are said to have been present in the Estadio da Luz stands, while Bayer Leverkusen also had a representative in attendance.

Should the Lilywhites act quickly they can land the highly-rated youngster for £25m, but Benfica are hopeful of increasing that release clause to £75m with talks over a new deal progressing.
