Tottenham have already begun preparing for next season, with arguably the biggest capture of the transfer window so far in the form of Brazilian international midfielder Paulinho from Corinthians.
Andre Villas-Boas has also seemingly secured the future of star man Gareth Bale for another season at least, meaning the potential signing of a big name striker is all that is missing to ensure Spurs fans head into the new season with real optimism.
The Portuguese coach had a relatively succesful first season in charge at White Hart Lane, which although ended in disappointment following their failure to qualify for the Champions League on the final day, saw them produce a record Premier League points tally whilst playing an exciting and attractive brand of football.
In order for Villas-Boas to further progress in his ‘project’ at Tottenham, he knows he will need to start developing the clubs youth players further. The likes of Steven Caulker made the step up last season, whilst others like Kyle Walker seemingly took a step backwards. So what can we expect from the next set of Spurs youngsters expected to break into the first team? We take a look at 5 that we think may be given an opportunity to impress next season.
