Tottenham are interested in signing Crystal Palace youngster Tyrick Mitchell, according to The Athletic.

The 20-year-old, who joined the Selhurst Park outfit from Brentford at the end of the 2015-2016 campaign, is yet to feature for Palace’s first-team, but has been named on Roy Hogdson’s bench four times this season – including Monday’s 1-0 defeat to Burnley.

According to The Athletic’s Crystal Palace writer Matt Woosnam, the left-back first caught the eye when impressing for the Eagles during their pre-season tour of Switzerland last summer, which saw him compared to Manchester United right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Despite those excellent performances, Mitchell hasn’t been given a senior opportunity by Hodgson, although with Palace’s chances of finishing in Europe looking slim, he’ll be hoping to play some part in their final six Premier League matches.

Woosman said that Mitchell has a similar style to ex-Eagle Wan-Bissaka, possessing great pace, energy and is effective at both ends of the pitch.

Despite the pre-season hype, Mitchell picked up an injury in the Swiss capital and has endured a tough campaign for the U23s, working hard to regain fitness.

Mitchell signed a new contract with Palace in January 2019, but Tottenham want to give him the chance to make the step up rather than continuing his development in south London.

Jose Mourinho already has two left-backs in Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon, but Danny Rose, who is currently on loan on Newcastle, is expected to leave in the summer, so that could open the door for Mitchell to bolster Tottenham’s full-back department.
