Tottenham Hotspur are among the Premier League clubs interested in signing Adama Bojang, an exciting young striker from Gambia.
The 18-year-old has been turning heads in the AFCON U20 Championship in Egypt, where he has been tipped to be named player of the tournament. Bojang’s performances have caught the attention of scouts from several clubs, including Spurs and Nottingham Forest.
Bojang has been in sensational form in the tournament, scoring a hat-trick in Gambia’s emphatic 5-0 win over South Sudan in the quarter-finals. He also earned the man of the match award, becoming the first Gambian to score a hat-trick in a CAF tournament and etching his name in his country’s record books.
Nicknamed ‘the Gambian Hurricane’, the 6ft 3ins centre forward is quick, brave, and direct, and has been prolific with his club side Steve Biko FC in Gambia.

Adama Bojang has been candid about his ambitions to win the Holden Boot for his club and use his goals at AFCON U20 to put himself in the proverbial shop window for a move to one of Europe’s top leagues this summer.
It is no surprise that several top clubs are interested in signing the young striker. Spurs, in particular, could benefit from Bojang’s presence in their squad. Tottenham have struggled to find a consistent goal scorer to mitigate the potential departure of Harry Kane.
While the likes of Heung-min Son and Dejan Kulusevski can step up in Kane’s absence, Spurs still lack a true centre forward who can lead the line in the future and score goals consistently. Bojang could be the answer to their problems.
Bojang’s physicality and pace would make him a perfect fit for the Premier League. His ability to hold the ball up and bring his teammates into play would also be an asset to Spurs’ attacking play.
Moreover, Adama Bojang is still only 18 years old, and he has a lot of room for improvement. Under the guidance of a top-class manager like Antonio Conte, Bojang could develop into a world-class striker in the future.
Of course, Tottenham will face competition from other clubs for Bojang’s signature. Ajax and French side Marseille have also expressed their interest in signing the young Gambian striker. However, Spurs’ reputation as a top Premier League club and their track record of developing young talents could give them an edge in the race to sign Bojang.
It remains to be seen whether Tottenham will make a move for Bojang this summer. However, it is clear that the young Gambian striker has the potential to become a top-class striker in the future. Spurs should seriously consider signing him and add a much-needed dimension to their attacking play.
