Everton, Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur are in a three-way January fight to secure the signature of Norwich City winger Jacob Murphy, according to The Mirror.

The England under-20s hot prospect is the Canaries top scorer this season with seven goals in 19 games, as well as assisting his fellow team-mates in four others.

Even-though the 21-year-old has only recently signed a new four-year deal with the Norfolk club, Norwich are expecting offers to come in for him next month.

Murphy, who failed to impress the hierarchy at Carrow Road until this campaign, has caught the eye of several Premier League clubs with his performances for Alex Neil’s men.

Previous to the 2016-17 season he spent loan spells at Swindon, Southend, Blackpool, Scunthorpe, Colchester and Coventry before returning to the Championship side this summer.

The talented wideman’s twin-brother Josh Murphy, who plays alongside his sibling, has also been influential for the Canaries this season, netting seven times in 14 games so far this campaign.
