Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keeping close tabs on highly rated Stevenage defender Ben Wilmot, according to the Daily Mail.

The Premier League sides, who currently sit fifth and fourth in the top-flight standings respectively, have been linked with the centre-half, who has broken through at the EFL League Two outfit this campaign.

The 18-year-old, who celebrated his birthday earlier this month (November 4), has made two first-team appearances for Darren Sarll’s side this season.

Wilmot, who signed his first professional contract at the club back in April 2017, made his senior debut against Milton Keynes Dons in the Checkatrade Trophy back in early October.

The report suggests that around 30 scouts were in attendance for Stevenage’s 3-1 win over Brighton’s Under-23 side in the Checkatrade Trophy earlier this month, including Liverpool and Spurs, with Wilmot playing the full 90 minutes at the Lamex Stadium.

Wilmot was also on the substitutes’ bench during Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw against Coventry City, however he is yet to feature in League Two so far this term.
