The chance to work with Mauricio Pochettino could tempt Rhian Brewster into Tottenham move

According to a report from The Sun, Tottenham are one of many sides keeping tabs on the uncertainty surrounding Rhian Brewster’s Liverpool future. The 18-year-old reportedly agreed a new five-year deal with the Merseyside giants back in June but the deal has yet to be confirmed, thus raising the possibility that the England Under-17 World Cup winner could well leave Anfield this summer. 

And Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs are one of many sides reportedly keen on the 18-year-old sensation, with the Argentine himself a factor which could tempt the English sensation into a move to North London.

The Breakdown

Ultimately, 46-year-old Pochettino has been a revelation since making the move to English football when taking over at Southampton back in 2013, with the Argentine doing so well there that he earned the chance to take over at Spurs a year later.

And having led the North London outfit to three successive top four finishes in the Premier League, including a second place effort back in 2017, he has transformed Tottenham into one of the best teams in the country, doing so with young English talent very much at the forefront of his plans.

The likes of Dele Alli, Eric Dier, and Harry Kane have all become Spurs regulars under Pochettino and are a hugely integral part of the squad at White Hart Lane, while the trio are also set to play a key role in the future of the England national team as well.

Add in Harry Winks, and indeed Luke Shaw from his time at Southampton, and Pochettino is willing to give young players the opportunity to shine in the first team, at the same time backing them to deliver the goods, which was none-more-so evident than last term when Alli went through a tricky spell, only for Pochettino to keep faith with him and encourage him to eventually re-discover his form.

Thus, the Pochettino factor appears to be making Tottenham a hugely desirable destination for young players, which must be of keen interest to 18-year-old Brewster, who reportedly has concerns regarding first team opportunities at Liverpool.

And while it will obviously be difficult for the 18-year-old to command regular football at Spurs, given they will be hoping to challenge for major honours this season, Pochettino will certainly give him a chance, at the same time improving him as a player under his guidance – very few have regressed under the Argentine.

Thus, with Brewster seemingly unsure over his development at Anfield, the 18-year-old could well be tempted by a move to Tottenham given Pochettino’s recent track record of nurturing young talent.
