Five Tottenham youngsters who could make their first-team breakthrough this season; including Alli and Winks

Tottenham Hotspur take great pride in their production of home-grown talent, with there a number of promising youngsters hoping to break through in 2015/16.

The 2014/15 Premier League season proved a major turning point for the success of Tottenham's youth development.

Harry Kane and Nabil Bentaleb may have broken into the first-team set-up during the previous campaign with Tim Sherwood at the helm, but it was under Mauricio Pochettino that the duo became integral players for the club.

Meanwhile, Ryan Mason also moved from academy graduate to first-team regular under the Argentine head coach.

With the aforementioned trio all progressing from the youth ranks into the first-team last term, there are a large number of promising players ready to make the same jump at White Hart Lane this time round.

With a new season on the horizon, there is a real sense of intrigue - especially following a promising pre-season - around Tottenham as to who will be the surprise star of the upcoming campaign; who will be this season's Harry Kane?

Here are five youngsters tipped to make their White Hart Lane breakthroughs in the 2015/16 Premier League campaign...

Alex Pritchard

Pritchard, a 22-year-old attacking midfielder, impressed on loan for Brentford last term, making the PFA Championship Team of the Year as the Bees mounted an unlikely promotion bid, which fell short in the play-offs.

Having recorded 12 goals and seven assists in 47 appearances, his performances earned him a place in the England Under-21 squad for the European Championships. It is almost a certainty that the talented midfielder will feature in the Spurs first-team next season. 

Milos Veljkovic

Veljkovic impressed for Serbia at the under-20 World Cup this summer, which has increased his chances of featuring for the Lilywhites this term. A midfielder turned defender, the 19-year-old has been a rising star in the Spurs academy for some time.

A number of clubs are keen to take the teenager on loan in time for the forthcoming campaign, according to the Daily Mail. However, seen as a potential solution to the club's lack of a defensive midfielder, he has been tipped to make the breakthrough into the White Hart Lane senior set-up.

Dele Alli

Dele Alli has developed into an accomplished midfield player over the past two years at MK Dons. He may be only 18, but he is mature beyond his years and is likely to prove a bargain at £5million, if given the chance to shine.

Alli came through the Dons academy before becoming a key member of the club's first team, who won promotion to the Championship last season after a series of near-misses. He netted 16 goals in 39 appearances as his side finished as League One runners-up.

Harry Winks

19-year-old Harry Winks, who signed his first professional terms last year, is highly regarded by head coach Mauricio Pochettino - a sentiment highlighted by the new long-term deal that he signed earlier this month, reported on by Sky Sports.

Winks was included on the bench a number of times last season and made his senior debut in the Europa League win against Partizan Belgrade in November 2014. He also impressed during the club's post-season tour of Malaysia and Australia.

Joshua Onomah

Despite being the least likely of the quintet to feature in the Spurs first-team this season, Joshua Onomah is showing everything required to be a star at White Hart Lane. 

The 18-year-old attacking midfielder, who last season appeared for the Lilywhites as a substitute versus Burnley in the FA Cup, has been included in the senior squad for recent behind-closed-doors friendlies, which suggests he could feature in Pochettino's upcoming plans.
