Azzaoui, 16, is the latest talent to come through the ranks at Anderlecht and is understood to have rejected a professional deal to remain in Belgium.

Spurs want to bring the midfielder to England to add to their Belgian contingent which already includes Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Nacer Chadli.

If Azzaoui does make the move to the Premier League, he would follow in the footsteps of fellow Anderlecht youth star Adnan Januzaj, who left to join Manchester United in 2011 and has gone on to establish himself in David Moyes' first-team.
