Nuno may have just unearthed the new Juan Foyth at Spurs - TBR View
Pre-season is in full swing at Spurs as they picked up an impressive 3-0 win on Wednesday night.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s Tottenham enjoyed a fruitful runout in Colchester, netting three first-half goals.
While Nuno seeks to get Spurs up to speed on the pitch, Fabio Paratici is busy looking for new players.
Indeed, football.london noted how the Italian was constantly on the phone prior to kickoff.
That said, Nuno may have just unearthed a top talent from within the Tottenham ranks.
And the player in question could potentially go a long way to addressing two problem areas in the squad.
That player is Maksim Paskotsi, a promising centre-back who has also shown he’s apt at right-back.
The 18-year-old played on the right of defence against Leyton Orient and again in the Colchester game.
Not only did Paskotsi do really well in both games but he also provided a great ball for Son Heung-min in the build-up to the Dele Alli goal last night.
Obviously Paskotsi is a bit raw to be considered a regular starter at this stage.
But he’s clearly a very talented player who could certainly do with being in and around the first-team next term.
Paskotsi is sure to shine with the Under-23s this term – but why not include him in the odd matchday squad, particularly in the Europa Conference League?
And it’s worth mentioning Paskotsi already has some competitive first-team football experience under his belt.
The Estonian played twice for Flora Tallinn in his home country and has also won five caps for the national team.
So he could surely step up in the cups for Spurs this season.
Spurs have a “quality” talent in their ranks, “big future to come for him”?
And fans are already tipping him for success at N17, one comparing him to Juan Foyth, the CB/RB who recently joined Villarreal:
