The 20-year-old has impressed for Ryman Premier League side Lewes this season, attracting scouts from a number of top-flight and Championship sides, and is currently on trial at Crystal Palace.

But according to The Daily Mail, Champions League chasers Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are also monitoring the prodigious attacker – who can play on either wing or as a No.10.

El-Mhanni started his career in the youth teams at Barnet and Aldershot before moving onto Farnborough and eventually Lewes in English football’s seventh tier, and has recently spent time training with West Bromwich Albion.
