According to the London Evening Standard, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has some doubts about playmaker Alex Pritchard.
After spells with Peterborough United and Swindon Town, Pritchard joined Brentford on loan last summer, penning a season-long loan deal with the Championship club.
So far this season, the England Under-21 attacking midfielder has hit nine goals and seven assists for Brentford, becoming a key player for Mark Warburton's side as they push for a play-off place.
Pritchard is now set to return to White Hart Lane at the end of the season, and will be looking to follow in the footsteps of fellow Spurs youngsters Nabil Bentaleb, Harry Kane and Ryan Mason in making a big impact under Pochettino at Tottenham.
However, the London Evening Standard believe that, whilst Pochettino is ready to bring Pritchard into the first team during pre-season, he does still have some reservations over him.
The report suggests that Pochettino still isn't sure that Pritchard can handle a high-pressing style like Tottenham's, and feels that he will need to give the youngster plenty of instructions in order to integrate him into Tottenham's system.
