Speaking to talkSPORT, pundit Gabriel Agbonlahor has dropped an enticing claim involving exciting Tottenham Hotspur talent Dane Scarlett.
The Lowdown: Famous, but barely-seen…
The 17-year-old has been heard of up and down the country and especially at Spurs since former boss Jose Mourinho handed him a senior debut in the Europa League last year.
However, despite all this potential, he has still only completed a full 90 minutes once for Spurs over five senior outings – all of which total just 144 minutes (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Agbonlahor drops Scarlett claim…
As some supporters itch for him to get more game time this season, Agbonlahor has urged Nuno to do the same thing whilst also sharing what he’s heard on Scarlett.
Indeed, the former Premier League striker has apparently heard ‘a lot of good things’ about the teenager from his sources.
“Spurs maybe should even take Kane out the team,” he explained to talkSPORT.
“If you’re a stronger manager, he doesn’t look happy, he’s not trying his hardest, he’s not playing for the team, get him out.
“Maybe put the young lad Scarlett in, I’ve heard a lot of good things about him.”
The Verdict: Exciting times for talent…
As well as Scarlett, the likes of Oliver Skipp, Nile John, Alfie Devine, Troy Parrott and Maksim Paskotski have turned heads at Spurs over the last few years (SBNation).
After the COVID-19 pandemic, a worldwide crisis which saw Spurs lose millions upon millions in matchday revenue, they could be more reliant than ever on world class youngsters emerging through their academy.
If Scarlett can have a breakthrough season, it may soften the blow if Kane eventually does depart north London.
