Arsenal and Tottenham are both said to be keeping tabs on Stockport starlet Tommy Rowe.

The 19-year-old forward has broken into the Hatters' first team this year and is now attracting a great deal of interest.

He has bagged four goals in his last three games including a stunning hat-trick in their recent win over Rotherham.

His manager Jim Gannon admits he has all the credentials to make it at the top level.

Premiership quality

"Tommy has got everything. Physically he's a supreme athlete with Premiership fitness," said Gannon.

"Technically he's excellent. Tactically he knows exactly how to play the floating winger role and mentally he's just been able to step up.

"I've said before, and I've told him personally, I think he's got a great future."

Rowe is just the latest product to emerge from Stockport's hugely successful youth setup.

The likes of Michael Raynes, Greg Tansey, Paul Turnbull, James Tunnicliffe, Chris Coward and Ryan Crowther - now with Liverpool - have all come through the ranks in the last couple of seasons.
