Would Rangers winger Nathan Oduwa have had something to offer Spurs this season?

The 19-year-old has been wowing the Glasgow crowds since arriving on a season long loan from North London.

The right wing position has been a bit of a problem area for Tottenham in recent years, which is surprising considering they had one of their more successful wide players at the club for much of the time Spurs were struggling there.

Erik Lamela was bought for big money and has flitted in and out of some semblance of form, mostly struggling to justify his price tag, while academy graduate Andros Townsend has failed to build on the tools he already has to become a successful winger, and is unfancied by many in the White Hart Lane crowd. All the while, at least during Mauricio Pochettino's reign, Aaron Lennon, a mainstay on the wing for much of his ten years at the club, was ignored, before being unceremoniously sold a year before his contract to Everton on transfer deadline day.

But there is one other winger at the club capable of playing on the right hand side, someone who is on the cusp of the first team and who may well be the most exciting individual to emerge from this extraordinary batch of young players that have graduated from the Spurs youth teams in the last five years or so, and he is already setting a division on fire at one of the biggest clubs in the UK.

Nathan Oduwa, who was on loan with Luton at the end of the last campaign, may only be performing in the Scottish Championship with Rangers, but the manner with which he is bewitching the opposition and Gers supporters in equal measure with his outrageous dribbling skill and close control is looking like it could be one of the big stories north of the border this season.

Mark Warburton has already proved that he knows how to help Spurs players excel when they spend time with him on loan, with Alex Pritchard, another big attacking prospect, shining for his Brentford side last season, and 19-year-old Oduwa is demonstrating some of the most exciting footwork in several years at Ibrox this season, helping the Glasgow giants to nine wins in a row.

Oduwa has certainly caught the eye of Pochettino as well, he impressed in the early pre-season matches that took place behind closed doors, assisting and scoring and essentially looking right at home as a dangerous attacking player among his international teammates.

It was a bit of a surprise to see him elect to join Rangers, as big a club as they are, when many Championship clubs would have dearly loved to have him. But Warburton, knows, trains, and plays the Tottenham way, and will send the England youth international back to White Hart Lane knowing how to excite a stadium of nearly 50,000, and also knowing how to avoid some of the rough attention his abilities are likely to bring.

The winger is on loan until next summer, when, barring a major surprise, he will have helped the Gers back into the Scottish Premiership, but as Oduwa continues to impress with every passing game, there is some argument to make that he would have had something to offer the Tottenham side right now such is his promise and already apparent match winning ability - something that has been missing in the club's opening four Premier League matches.
