Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has raved over unseen youngster Luca Gunter following some ‘terrific’ exploits for the club’s Under-19s.
The Lowdown: Spurs academy flourishing
Where will Spurs finish in the Premier League?
Hotspur Way has birthed some major talents in recent years with midfielder Oliver Skipp even tipped to one day become captain of the north Londoners.
Meanwhile, forward Dane Scarlett is setting the south coast alight on loan at Portsmouth – having scored three goals in five League One starts whilst also grabbing an assist (WhoScored).
The Latest: Gold raves over unseen Gunter…
Now, going by the reaction of Spurs journalist Gold, there could be yet another bright youngster to watch out for.
Akin to Hugo Lloris in Tottenham’s senior 2-0 defeat to Sporting last night, Under-19s shot stopper Gunter appeared to enjoy a fine evening against the Portuguese youngsters in the UEFA Youth League but could do little about the result.
Gunter made some ‘terrific’ saves in the pouring rain, but much like Conte’s side, the Spurs starlets fell to a 2-0 loss – Gold stated:
“Luca Gunter having a terrific first half in goal so far for Spurs U19s in their UEFA Youth League match against Sporting. Some acrobatic saves in the constantly changing weather.”
The Verdict: One to watch?
Still yet to make his senior debut, Gunter is building quite the reputation.
Gold isn’t the only Spurs source to draw attention to the 17-year-old with Football Insider pundit John Wenham calling the teenager a ‘standout’ in the academy.
Wenham goes on to say he is ‘really excited‘ about the Gunter, and going by his latest exploits, supporters may well want to keep an eye on him.
