Fabrizio Romano has said on his YouTube channel that one of his sources have told him that Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pape Matar Sarr could become a player like Manchester United star Paul Pogba.
Tottenham signed Sarr from Metz in the summer transfer window.
As part of the deal, Spurs have let the 18-year-old midfielder stay at Metz on loan for this season.
Well-known and well-respected journalist Romano has claimed that one of his sources have told him that the Senegal international midfielder could become a player in the mould of Pogba.
Romano said about Sarr on his YouTube channel: “I am told this guy is really more than an interesting talent. He is really potential, fantastic talent.
“One of my sources told me he could become one style of Pogba player. He has style, he has potential, he has skills, so we will see what happens with this guy.”
Exciting for Tottenham Hotspur
Sarr is only 18, and the midfielder staying on loan at Metz for this season indicates that Tottenham consider him one for the future.
Spurs do have a strong midfield, and it would have been hard for the Senegalese to play week in and week out for Nuno’s side this season.
Pogba is one of the best midfielders in the world, and it must be exciting for Spurs fans to hear that Sarr could become a player in his mould.
Playing regularly for Metz this season is only going to help the teenager in his development and progress as a footballer.
Sarr made 18 starts and four substitute appearances in Ligue 1 for Metz last season.
The teenager scored three goals in those games.
The midfielder has provided one assist in four Ligue 1 matches for Metz so far this season.
