The Tottenham Hotspur teenager is tipped to have a bright future at the club.

According to a recent report from the Times, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing both Vincent Janssen and Michy Batshuayi this summer.

While it remains to be seen if the North London can get deals done for both, the prospect of two new quality strikers joining Harry Kane at White Hart Lane is likely to be a daunting prospect for the next generation of forwards coming through, most notably Shayon Harrison.

The 18-year-old shone after making the step up to Tottenham’s under-21s last season, scoring 10 goals in 20 appearances, and while he is yet to make his senior debut a chance could be on the horizon.

Or at least that would be the case if Tottenham do not suddenly bring in two new forwards to compete not only with Kane but with the likes of Clinton N’Jie and Heung-Min Son for a starting spot depending what formation Pochettino adopts.

Competing on four fronts next season, Tottenham will surely give chances to some of their younger players at various stages of the campaign, with Harrison and defender Cameron Carter-Vickers arguably the two most likely to make their debuts.

But the striker will have little chance of breaking through if he does not only have to compete with Kane but also Janssen and Batshuayi.

In that instance a loan move is surely the most likely option. However if Spurs only bring in one new experienced front man this summer, Harrison could yet get a few brief chances to shine in the shorter term.
