Premier League clubs: Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, are said to be battling for the signature of Nigeria and Sunderland youngster, Josh Maja.
According to The Mirror, Southampton are also interested in signing the 19-year-old whose contract with Sunderland will expire at the end of this season.
Maja, who scored for his side’s 1-1 draw with Wycombe Wanderers last weekend, is yet to sign a new deal at the Stadium of Light.
The striker has so far been impressive in the EFL League One this campaign.
He trained with City before he was offered a scholarship at Sunderland back in 2015.
Maja will hope to lead Sunderland to victory when they clash with Walsall on Saturday evening in the EFL League One.
Sunderland currently sit on second position on the EFL League One log with 36 points from 17 games.
