The future appears bright for Tottenham Hotspur, with two of their players having made the Golden Boy shortlist.
Tuttosport released their 100-strong list of the best players under the age of 21 on Saturday, and Oliver Skipp and Tashan Oakley-Boothe both made the cut.
The list will be shaved down over the coming months and the final 20 will battle it out in October.
First established in 2003, the award has been won by the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Kylian Mbappe and Matthijs de Ligt.
Midfielder Skipp made his bow last season for Spurs, playing 12 games in all competitions.
The starlet was called upon by Mauricio Pochettino as he faced an injury crisis, and Skipp stepped up to the mark.
Oakley-Boothe made waves for the club’s U23s in Premier League 2, helping the team to a ninth-placed finish.
He’ll certainly have his eye on following Skipp’s example and making his mark with the first-team in 2019/20.
Neither player stands a chance of winning, but it is still great recognition for the young pair.
The talented youngsters are easily two of the best prospects currently at Spurs, and could make big names for themselves over the next few years.
Skipp has had a taste of the big time and Oakley-Boothe will be hungry to experience the Premier League.
That said, with Tottenham seemingly eyeing up some big transfers this summer such as Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele, their gems may have to go out on loan ahead of next season.
