3 top Spurs talents who could shine next season including 'world-class' 21-year-old centre-back

Tottenham Hotspur will look to regroup in the summer following a season that promised so much and delivered so little.

Spurs ended up empty-handed once again, their major trophy drought set to stretch into a 14th year.

And in terms of European qualification, Tottenham will take part in the inaugural Europa Conference League.

In addition, Spurs are on the lookout for a new permanent manager, while star striker Harry Kane is reportedly looking to leave.

Where EVERY Euro 2020 Squad Would Finish In The Premier League

However, it’s not all doom and gloom – there are some top talents coming through the Spurs ranks who could well stake a claim for a senior squad place next season.

Let’s look at a few Tottenham players who the coaches could look at in pre-season:

TJ Eyoma

Eyoma is a versatile defender who can play both at centre-back and at right-back.

Considering Spurs have struggled in both of these positions, that already gives the 21-year-old an advantage in terms of giving something to the first team.

Eyoma has developed massively this season too, becoming a fan favourite on loan at Lincoln City.

He has made over 50 appearances for the Imps, including 41 in League One.

Here’s what a few fans have said about Eyoma in recent days:

Ryan Sessegnon

Sessegnon joined Tottenham from Fulham in 2019 to much fanfare.

The 21-year-old was superb for the Cottagers in their 2017-18 promotion-winning campaign.

However, Sessegnon’s maiden season at Spurs didn’t quite go to plan.

A hamstring injury kept him out of action until November and he had little game time after that.

Sessegnon has spent 2020-21 on loan at Hoffenheim and has done well, making 29 appearances and earning plenty of experience along the way.

He finished his stint on a winning note, claiming an assist in a 2-1 win over Hertha Berlin.

With Ben Davies and Sergio Reguilon flattering to deceive at times, Sessegnon could well have a chance to stake his claim.

Here’s what some fans have been saying:

Oliver Skipp

Skipp is one of the brightest players to come through the Tottenham academy in recent years.

The 20-year-old midfielder has been sensational on loan at Championship side Norwich this season.

Skipp played 45 times for the Canaries as they cruised to promotion under Daniel Farke.

Described by Norwich as their “midfield general” in 2020-21, he has won so many plaudits this term.

Ryan Mason has called Skipp an “incredible talent”, Jose Mourinho thought he’d be a “future captain” and Mauricio Pochettino said he was a “top” player destined for a big career.
