Taking a closer look at five Tottenham Hotspur teenagers who could one day be first-team regulars.
Tottenham Hotspur have shown they are not afraid to give young players a chance, and have benefitted considerably as a result.
Harry Kane, Nabil Bentaleb, Eric Dier and Ryan Mason have all shone this season, but there are some even younger players coming through the ranks in key positions who could ultimately form the bedrock of Tottenham’s team of the future.
Some of these players are unlikely to experience first-team football anytime soon, while others are on the cusp, but whatever the next few seasons hold this Tottenham quintet may one day be turning out together for the senior side.
Cameron Carter-Vickers (centre-back)
The pick of the bunch, Tottenham centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers may only be 17 but he already looks like he could make an impact at senior level.
He recently had Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao in his pocket during an under-21 encounter and he has it all in his locker to make it in North London.
Luke Amos (holding midfielder)
Luke Amos used to play in a more attacking role but in the last couple of years he has developed into a highly effective holding midfielder.
The 18-year-old was a key part of Tottenham’s progress to the semi-finals of this season’s FA Youth Cup and in time he could blossom into a fine first-team addition.
Nathan Oduwa (winger)
Nathan Oduwa is a winger-cum-striker who has pace and great finishing ability. He has represented England at under-17 and under-18 level and recently joined Luton Town on loan.
The 19-year-old has what the likes of Andros Townsend and Erik Lamela are struggling to show – the thrilling and vital combination of speed and end product.
Josh Onomah (attacking midfielder)
Joshua Onomah is a 17-year-old attacking midfielder who has already experienced first-team football for Tottenham this season.
The youngster came off the bench in the FA Cup tie against Burnley, while he was an unused substitute for the Europa League match away to Besiktas.
Daniel Akindayini (striker)
Could Tottenham have another Harry Kane on their hands? It is too early to tell but there is no doubt Daniel Akindayini is making the right steps to achieving that goal.
The 19-year-old forward was the club’s top-scorer at under-18 level last season and he has since impressed for the under-21s.
