Interstingly, another youngster is talked about in quite glowing terms in the report – the versatile attacker Luca Williams-Barnett.

Although the 15-year-old is an attacking midfielder by trade, he can play in either flank and has featured quite a bit on the right lately.

The teenager has starred for Tottenham’s Under-16 side and it is revealed that he is now starting to turn quite a lot of heads with his performances.

The Standard say that Williams-Barnett is considered a ‘top prospect’ not just at Spurs but also by those who work with the England set-up.

The publication describes the youngster as a ‘spectacular finisher’ who is also known for his ability to cut in from the wing and carry the ball.
