Nuno calls up goalscoring 18-year-old and former Arsenal talent to Spurs first-team training today
Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo has been putting his players through their paces ahead of their upcoming Premier League fixture.
Tottenham are back in action on Sunday when they head to Newcastle, who have dominated footballing headlines over the past week following their takeover.
Spurs struggled following the September international break but returned to winning ways before the latest break, beating Aston Villa 2-1 on October 3.
This time, Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero will be in contention to play in Tottenham’s first game after the break.
They will not need to quarantine after Argentina was removed from the UK government’s red list this week.
That said, the Spurs duo’s next match won’t be until the early hours of Friday morning, with Argentina facing Peru in World Cup qualifying action.
Therefore, Nuno will likely have to make a late decision on whether to include Lo Celso and Romero in his latest squad.
At Hotspur Way, pictures from Thursday’s training session show that Nuno has brought in a defender and a midfielder from the academy to take part.
Tobi Omole was involved, as was Nile John.
Omole, a 21-year-old centre-back, joined Spurs in October 2020 after six years at the Arsenal academy.
He joined the Gunners in 2014 following a spell in midfield at Thamesmead before switching to centre-back, and progressed through the age groups up to Under-23 level.
Omole is yet to make his first competitive senior appearance for Spurs, but has made one Premier League matchday squad and two Europa Conference League squads.
Meanwhile, John is an 18-year-old central midfielder who is predominantly right-footed but is skilled with both feet, and has been at Tottenham since the age of seven.
He has made two senior appearances – against Wolfsberger in the Europa League and Pacos de Ferreira in the Europa Conference League.
John has been in great goalscoring form this season – he has scored three times in just six Premier League 2 games this term.
If Romero and Lo Celso fail to make the matchday squad against Newcastle, it looks as though there’s a good chance Omole and John could make the trip.
