Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is at the front of the queue to land Ipswich’s whizz-kid striker Connor Wickham in the summer.

Redknapp has fronted inquiries about the strapping Tractor Boys’ 17-year-old whose wonder goal against Sheffield United last week shot him further into the public eye.

The young hitman has been in and around the Ipswich side for a year.

But he could be on the move at the end of the ­season – if an acceptable offer comes in as the major clubs line up for him.

Top Ipswich sources reveal that Redknapp is the manager most ­interested in Wickham.

But Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish made a personal check on 6ft 3in Wickham playing for England Under-19s in midweek against Germany at Chesterfield.

Redknapp is keen to bring through a young English striker and would find a space for Wickham in his squad – with the full approval of chairman Daniel Levy, who has supported that policy in the past.

Ipswich will be ­looking for around £8m-£10million for Wickham.
