Maksim Paskotsi has been spotted in Tottenham Hotspur training, as he pushes to claim a first-team place under Nuno.

A big chance

The youngster has been selected as one of Tottenham’s brightest talents, after showing plenty of promise in their under-23’s.

With a number of Spurs’ first-team players still away, after representing their countries this summer, Nuno has been required to call upon the club’s development players to fill in.

And Paskotsi has been given the nod to show that he can do.

Paskotsi is actually a rare breed of player, as he has more experience at international level than in club football.

Paskotsi has represented Estonia five times already, but he is yet to play for Tottenham at all.

First-team breakthrough?

There is hope that the 18-year-old could develop into a senior prospect at Spurs, though.

If Paskotsi can impress over pre-season he may even have a chance of doing so fairly quickly under Nuno.

Although Tottenham are thought to be looking for a new central defender this summer, there are spaces up for grabs in their back-line, and if Paskotsi can show his quality in pre-season friendlies it may give Nuno some food for thought.
