Tottenham Hotspur have brought through a number of class stars through their academy in recent seasons.

The likes of Harry Kane, Andros Townsend, Jake Livermore, Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb, and plenty of others were all fruits of the Spurs youth system.

However, Tottenham man Moussa Sissoko was asked by Foot Mercato who people should look out for from the current young Spurs crop.

Sissoko singled out young Harry Winks for praise, despite him already being an established first team player.

Harry Winks missed the majority of the end of last season, as well as the World Cup with England due to a serious injury.

However, after recovering and returning this campaign, Winks looks stronger than ever.

His passing game has always been top notch, but he has added a physicality and tenacity to his play, as well as the ability to drive forward with the ball.

Sissoko even compared the 22-year-old to Steven Gerrard.

He told Foot Mercato:  “At our place, there is little Harry Winks. He is a very good player who reminds me of Steven Gerrard. I think he has the same profile. He is evolving. From day to day, we see him evolve, progress. He is confident. He is even in England A team so it proves that he is a quality player. He is the young player of the club that will explode in the years to come.”
