3 Tottenham youngsters who could make breakthrough in Europa Conference League

Tottenham Hotspur will take part in the newly formed Europa Conference League next season – and that could be positive for several youngsters.

Spurs finished seventh in the Premier League and will now become one of several founding members of the competition – slightly different to the European Super League, it has to be said!

Tottenham finished their campaign with a 4-2 win over Leicester. Ryan Mason took charge for what will probably be the last time and oversaw a victory.

Next season, Spurs will ultimately want to get back into the big European competitions. With that in mind, they might not take the Europa Conference League overly serious.

Following their qualification for the competition yesterday, we looked at three youngsters who could benefit from being in the tournament.

7 Most & Least Valuable Euro 2020 Squads

Alfie Devine

The talented 16-year-old was signed from crisis-club Wigan Athletic last summer.

He was fortunate enough to make his first-team debut during 2020/21, scoring in a 5-0 win over Marine in the FA Cup.

The versatile midfielder was a regular in the under-18 and under-23 ranks during the campaign, scoring four goals.

Next season could see him progress even further and more first-team opportunities could be forthcoming.

He was on the bench for two Premier League games during last season and the future certainly looks bright for the teenager.

Kion Etete

The former Notts County youngster has taken the under-23s by storm over the last 12 months.

He scored nine goals and claimed three assists from 21 appearances last term and looks set for a really bright future.

If Harry Kane leaves a new striker will be sought, but it could also open the door for Etete to win more chances to shine.

Etete looks set to get a chance in the senior Tottenham ranks at some point – and why not the Europa Conference League.

Dennis Cirkin

The left-back has been knocking on the door of the first-team for a few years now.

He was on the bench for two Europa League games against Royal Antwerp and Ludogorets during the 2020/21 campaign.

Cirkin hasn’t actually made a first-team appearance yet for Tottenham though, with a chance not yet forthcoming.

At 19 he will be hoping to get a chance to shine soon and he could benefit from Tottenham’s foray into Europe next season.
