Tottenham Hotspur managed to secure a vital three points last night against Brighton and Hove Albion, but it wasn’t a straight forward win as Christian Eriksen had to save the day late on.
Spurs are in desperate need of attacking reinforcements in the summer transfer window with Fernando Llorente’s contract set to run out in the summer transfer window and Vincent Janssen struggling.
However, Mauricio Pochettino may have already found an attacker who could come into the first team ranks next season in the form of 17-year-old Troy Parrott.
The youngster has made a name for himself in the youth ranks, producing 16 goals in 23 games, including 13 goals in eight games in the U18 Premier League. It’s clear to see he can score goals and Harry Winks is a prime example of how well young players can turn out to be in the Premier League, so Pochettino should take a gamble.
Indeed, the Argentine has a good track record of developing younger players into stars in the first team ranks, so perhaps the Irishman could be the next player to make moves in north London.
He’s quick on the ball, loves to drive at players and has the finishing ability to punish the opposition in the final third. Spurs really do have a special talent on their hands and next season could be when Spurs fans finally get to witness him on a regular basis, which could benefit Harry Kane.
And, more importantly, making use of him next season could save Daniel Levy millions in the summer transfer window as he won’t have to go out and spend a large amount of money on a striker.
