Could four exciting Tottenham Hotspur teenagers get their breakthroughs in the upcoming campaign?
According to a report from the Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is set to promote four young players to his first-team next season, with the quartet set to feature regularly in cup competitions.
The report states that goalkeeper Luke McGee, midfielders Josh Onomah and Harry Winks and defender Cameron Carter-Vickers are likely to be the group Tottenham hope follow the likes of Harry Kane and Nabil Bentaleb into the first-team.
The Telegraph claims the four players will train regularly with the senior stars and take part in cup competitions.
Onomah and Winks got a taste of first-team action last season when they featured – albeit briefly – in the FA Cup and Europa League respectively. As for Carter-Vickers and McGee, they are yet to enjoy their Tottenham debuts but, in the case of the American centre-back, it will surely come sooner rather than later.
He may only be 17, but Carter-Vickers is a wonderful talent and next season could be the one where he begins to show what he can do on a bigger stage having consistently impressed for the under-21s.
McGee will have to be more patient, with Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm first- and second-choice currently.
One thing is for sure, Tottenham are continuing to develop very talented players and it will be interesting to see which of them makes the biggest impact next season and beyond.
