Writing for football.london, reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has tipped promising barely-seen youngster Alfie Devine for more minutes next season as one of the Lilywhites talents who could save chairman Daniel Levy millions.
Amid the tough financial outlook for Spurs brought upon by coronavirus, Gold explains in his piece that blockbuster summer dealings may prove challenging – with manager Jose Mourinho possibly having to adopt a sell-to-buy policy.
Gold tips Tottenham nod for Devine
Shedding light on a possible silver lining for Tottenham, Gold has listed the Hotspur Way talents who could shine over 2021/2022 and save the club millions in transfer fees.
One of the starlets he has tipped for a nod next season is Devine, especially as he explains that the 2020 summer signing is in fact too young to be sent out on a loan spell.
As a result, Gold touts that he is likely to get more game time next season and could potentially shine for Spurs – with the 16-year-old having already broken a club record.
He became the club’s youngster ever goalscorer after firing home in a 5-0 demolition job away to Marine in the FA Cup, and the journalist explains that may just be the start.
Transfer Tavern take
The teenager has had no shortage of plaudits, either, with Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher calling him ‘top class’ on Twitter just before Spurs completed his signing.
Meanwhile, fellow youngster Japhet Tanganga recently lifted the lid on his energy behind the scenes – praising him as a ‘real spark’ when he gets picked to train with the senior side (football.london).
Time will tell whether Devine could save Levy millions, but it seems like there is definitely potential there for him to do so.
