And Tottenham fans have been very impressed by the prospect’s displays during their pre-season tour.

1)Lamela – give this man a Firmino role
2)Sanchez – the beard gives him an added dimension
3)Rose – needs to be on this team
4)Skipp – going to be better than Winks soon
5)Tanganga – hope he gets cup minutes

Super impressed by Oliver Skipp. Great composure. Not fazed at all #THFC— Spursleif (@spursleif) July 30, 2019
Really big fan of Skipp. His passing is accurate, covers a lot of ground, puts a foot in. Absolute workhorse. #THFC— Samuel Hickey (@samueljhickey26) July 30, 2019
I love Skipp and Tanganga. I seriously hope they get minutes to develop and grow. I believe they are the next generation of great Spurs players. #THFC— Timber (@ALTimber13) July 30, 2019
Big fan of Oliver Skipp. He’s not fancy or glamorous but he uses the ball well, is positive with his passing and advances play. Hope he gets more minutes in 2019/20. #thfc— James Dickens (@JamesWDickens) July 30, 2019
Skipp has been identified as a player who could break into Tottenham’s first-team soon, and he was given a handful of senior appearances last term.
His task of breaking into Tottenham’s midfield looks tough, especially after the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele, but he certainly appears to have the talent to compete.
Tottenham are in action again this evening when they take on Bayern Munich, and Skipp is likely to get more game time.
