Speaking to Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur ‘insider‘ and club source John Wenham, who breaks news on his Lilywhite Rose social media account, has shared what he thinks Nuno Espirito Santo could do against Wolves tonight.
The Lowdown: Tottenham talents emerging…
While there are arguably many issues at Spurs right now, with one of them being the lack of attractive football, a proud aspect of supporting the Lilywhites is certainly their ability to nurture young talent.
The likes of Oliver Skipp, Alfie Devine, Joshua Oluwayemi, Japhet Tanganga and Nile John are just a few of the youngsters to grab some attention in recent times.
However, arguably one of the most talented among them is young attacker Dane Scarlett – with former boss Jose Mourinho even calling him a ‘diamond‘.
The Latest: Insider thinks Nuno could turn to Scarlett…
Sharing what he thinks Nuno could do against Wolves this evening, club insider Wenham has predicted to Football Insider that he may turn to Scarlett with Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura ruled out.
“I think he will feature tomorrow,” Wenham told FI.
“He could start or come on from the bench. We don’t need Harry Kane doing 90 minutes at Wolves with Arsenal to come on Sunday.
“Were we to lose him as well, we would not be looking in great shape ahead of that North London Derby.
“Scarlett is an outstanding young forward. The fact he was playing for the England Under 19 side as a 17-year-old tells you everything about his ability.
“I would love him to get some minutes as a young, homegrown, academy prospect.”
The Verdict: Do it…
Getting Scarlett as much game time as possible is arguably imperative if he is to develop as an eventual first team star for Spurs, and we believe the stage is set for him to play against Wolves.
The losses of both Bergwijn and Lucas free up space on the wings for a hungry, exciting young forward to make a big impression.
Alasdair Gold called the starlet ‘very, very talented‘ and now may be his chance to shine once again for Spurs.
